Nice!  I especially like the vivid corn-husk-green gradient to the wing membranes.  

 Thanks very much!  I hadn't thought about it that way (the gradient).  But now that you mention it...yeah! Yeah it does kinda look like a corn-husk!

Thanks Glitterwolf! I had actually meant to go back and make the gradients a little smoother, but in the end, forgot completely about it.  Ah well, another finished mini, another learning experience! ::D:

Something about this paint job didn't feel quite right to me.  It took several moments of staring at it to figure it out:

 

In the fins along his spine, you've put the dark, cool greens closer to the body, and the blended towards bright yellows at the edge. That makes sense: the flesh would get thinner and allow more light to pass through it the closer you got to the edge.  But then, on the wings, you've reversed it: bright yellows near the bone, darker colors towards the edges.  It's a small thing, but my eye didn't want to resolve the figure properly.  The two opposing gradations fight with one another to a certain degree.

 

It's still a striking figure.  And probably most people won't notice.  Just something to think about for future!

:lol: Thanks!  For my part, I just see them as different parts of its body.  Indeed, the color on the back of the dragons wings is completely different. Sorry if that bugs you!

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.

      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
       
       
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...

      Hi all, I'm not sure if this has ever been discussed, but does anyone know if Reaper has ever discussed/considered making the Bones ground sculpts that support the miniature the perfect circumference to be flush for 1" or 2" or 3" for RPG bases? Even for just the smaller miniatures that would fit 1" or 2" bases and not the large-sized ones?
       
      It seems like there would be a big portion of the market that would love a miniature you don't have to do special basing for besides supergluing it to a base considering how great some of the sculpted ground looks already. Basing miniatures by removing the nice ground sculpts from Reaper or trying to figure out how to obscure/blend in the sculpted ground is one of my biggest pet peeves about this hobby and I feel like there must be others who feel the same.

      I picked this up to paint for my girlfriend as Lon reminds me of her dog Erebus. He was fun to paint, although looking at the photo I can see a lot of flash I missed. As Erebus is female I probably should have done Lon's trousers in pink or the same teal shade as Erebus's collar and leash.

      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!

      Went a bit crazy and felt the call of the mini. Painted this in a single afternoon. Starting to get a hang on wet blending.
