T'Raukzul, Great Wyrm Red Dragon & Treasure Hoard (Really Picture Heavy)

Recommended Posts

This turned out fantastic. I'm a detail junkie so all the little bits and bobs in the treasure horde really make this come together for me. Coupled with your excellent paint work, I'm sure your players are going to love this. 

 

(Although they may dislike you for dropping that great beast on them)

Nicely done! Great details on the base too!

I probably spent more time on getting the base put together from bits I had lying around than painting it. I also probably spent more money on the base than on the dragon miniature itself.

Some characters are in for a world of hurt. That's really cool. :)

They're already dreading it, like being Gestalt Mythic Pathfinder characters with elite Stat arrays isn't enough.

Fantastic! That is very impressive.

I love how dragons look when I'm done, but painting them is so tedious.

I had fun putting together all the bits, though I did notice several repeating details used in the resin treasure and pewter pieces. I honestly would have liked an even larger coin hoard, but I want sure how to pull it off without it becoming even more uneven.

Really love the gradients on the wings.

 

Also love that statue.  I'm envisioning the conversation that took place as it was added to the horde - "..and place that over by the wall....No, a little more to the right."

One of my friends looked right at the statue and mused that she was clearly a petrified adventurer.

      The time has come. The stars are right. The planets align. GenCon is nearly upon us. And so the great Iymrith rises upon the Mountain peak.
       

       

       
      As Eldritch Lingtning ignites the cloudy skies and strikes the very Mountain Peak around her!
       

       

       
      She prepares for her journey to the great Gladiator Pits in a distant place known only as Indy. Where bands of skilled and Mighty warriors shall fight for her amusement, in the faint hopes to win her favor. She hopes not to be dissappointed, yet again.

      Whew. This took me so very far out of my comfort zone! A real Trophy Style Base, LED Lighting Effects, Using Pine Bark Chips, Scraping off most of the Yellow Clear "Paint" I put on the Bolts, ect. BUT, she is done! And She Looks FREAKING AMAZING! Now to just put the finishing touches on the last couple prizes, and I'm done with this project!
       
      Anywho, Let me know what you think of her. Please tell me You like her and think I did a good job and that I did not just waste about a month on this for nothing.

      Pretty late in the mini to start a WIP but I could use some thoughts and suggestions, in particular in the area of contrast.  I am looking to bring up the contrast on the scales but I don't want to shift to an orange or pink.  The skin shows a decent contrast but to my eye it's more orange than red at this point.  I love the different shading going on for each scale type but I want more from the upper body scales without going into orange and yellow.
       
      My challenge to myself this year is to gel my reds to be red.  It's not an easy color to work with and a lot of these paints are either transparent or chalk when thinned.  It has been a long road to get this far but I want a richer color.
       
      Thoughts would be welcomed along with critique.  Pictures were snapped off my work bench but I will shoot for better ones this weekend.  In the meantime...
       
      the photos are raw and taken without flash to try and show the pieces in the most natural light
       
      The body.  Trying for three textures plus the crest.  The heavy armored back scales are under layered with corpreal shadow to make them stand out, then shaded from a dark purple red to blood red.  The body scales are undershaded with brick red and shaded up to a highlight of Phoenix red.  The body skin on the arms starts at Gore red and shaded up to a lantern yellow.  Problem is with the body.  I would like more highlight but whatever I try changes the tone to either orange or pink. 

      The head: still a work in progress.  Needing to clean up the horns and again highlight without going to the orange or pink

       
      Upper side of wing.  Looking pretty good although a set of missed mold lines is making me repaint the horns

       
      Wing underside.  Subdued and darker as this part is solidly cast in shadow and the horns are in the process of being repainted... again

       
      So thanks again for anyone who would like to help out.
