The dragon looks good.  the spines might take a couple layers of wash from point down to give them some more shading, but overall it looks great.  The shading on the head and horns is great.. could carry that into the rest of the body and spines.

 

Sphere is a nice contrasting color to the rest..

 

The flames could use some more definition and contrast..  you might find this helpful:

I think it looks great! The only critique I can come up with would be to make the eyes stands out more by being painted with a different color, like blue.

Looks fantastic!

I also backed for the same reason.  I didn't have any Eastern Fantasy themed minis before.

The game looks cool, but I still haven't played a round of "Blood Rage" yet.

Thanks for the video. I've been using this link when working with fire, especially on this one. I can see where a more intense red might be a good idea.

The dragon is a beautiful sculpt and you painted it so well, especially the face. I like the color you chose for the beard and eyebrows, etc. It looks nice with the gold.

 

My only critique is that the fire looks too "pastel" to me. Maybe just glaze a more vibrant yellow over parts of the lower yellow section and then bright orange and red towards the top.

 

It is really pretty!

Wow, that is great!

only critiq from me is the eyes, i would suggest something more like ‘normal’ dragon/reptile eyes.

 

Your color choices are excellent!

Very nice.  I got a Ten Thunders dragon recently for a Lung Dragon, but this is much more impressive than mine.  Very cool!

      This was another ina large collection of oldies that my high school friends gave me. Trying to make the scales look like garnets or rubies. Please critique!

      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!

      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.

      Two week campaign
       
      Information is growing on Cmon page and BGG.  This rings all the right bells and is likely to mug me quite severely.
       
      From the Facebook announcement:
       
      "The ritual has started, and there’s no stopping it now. The only hope for the Investigators…and the rest of the world for that matter, is to disrupt it just enough so that when the Elder One arrives, it will be vulnerable for a split second. Just long enough to kill it!
      They’ll get their chance when Cthulhu: Death May Die comes to Kickstarter on July 10 at 3 PM EST. The new game from CMON and Guillotine Games combines the creative talents of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Stay tuned as we reveal more about the Investigators risking their lives and the unspeakable horrors they will face off against."
       
      Or as Mr. Lang says in interviews, the game where you "shoot Cthulhu in the face."
