I'm almost done color scheming for this. I have no idea what colors to use for the black head though. I don't have a lot of blacks/black like colors currently. Also, trying to figure out a good color for the belly scales and back spines. 

 

Looks like it's time to consult the Google machine.

I've got most of the body base coated. I've also base coated the red and green heads. I used black green as a base for my green head and it is much darker once dried, I think I can work with it though. I'm really not sure how to handle the black head though. If any one has tips on that I'll take what I can get.

A couple of tips I got from Corporea are to keep 75% of your black areas black (so it doesn't look gray from too much highlighting), and alo to use a very dark blue or purple (or even green) in the shaded areas, since oddly those read as more black than straight black. :) 

 

I'm excited to see how your baby Ma'al turns out! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Got the heads based. Pretty impressed with the Bones Dragon White, good coverage for only two coats. Need to bring the green head up a lot, too dark currently.

The Bones Dragon White is a really crisp white, and brighter than the Pure White I think. Lately Scale 75's Purity White has been my favorite white though. It is silky smooth on the brush and thins like a dream. Haven't used it for base coating, however.

Really coming along nicely. Might have to pick up a second hydra to do this with.

Got the tops of the wing membranes based, going to try to fade from a bright red to a black.

Back at it. Still layering up red on the wings, should've put a little less blue liner or a more thinned liner on the wings. Getting this as bright as I want it is turning out to be a slow process.

Green head mostly done. Trying to get the red, blue, and green heads done first since they are harder to get at.

Watching your progress makes it very tempting to make a metal copy using 14445 and 14417 since I love the metal in general!

 

But $100 is a lot !!! Lol

      Can't seem to find these guys.  It says they're from Bones 3.

      Last up in my recently finished miniatures are a set of Animal-Folk from Reaper, all part of Bones 3.  I believe some are Lyncanthropes and some from the Savage Avatars sets.

      The pack:



      The Gorilla King, with hat:



      And without:



      The Were-Gorilla:



      Werebear don't care:




      A rather standard Werewolf:




      Wereboar gotta go fast:



      And a Water-Buffalo-Man.  I realized I painted him after a Yak, then remembered that's not the animal he was meant to be.

      This was my entry for the Quarterly Bones Reaper Fan Facebook Painting Contest.
      The Angel of Shadow.  She was good enough for an Honorable Mention (Thanks Reaper Matt)!
      For the prior contest, I liked how people were getting interesting light effects by using a black backdrop, so I tried that.
      Another reason I wanted to do it was to see if I could put her on a standard gaming base, supported by a rod painted black to fade into the backdrop, to give her a good illusion of flying.
      Also, this was my first attempt at Monochrome.  My final idea was to do a weapon swap to a wand (A cross-looking weapon from the BONES 3 Weapon Sprue), and sculpted my take on Acid Arrow, painting it green as the only color on the model, like those stunning black and white photos with colored flowers, etc.  I would say I'm a much better painter than sculptor
       
      Her paints used
       
      As time wore down, I had to abandon thoughts of OSL, so I made it seem like her lantern had died out and the spell didn't cast much light.
       
      Here are some other photos against an out-of-focus rug to show some tighter details.
      I tried to put some texture into the fabric of her dress, which was another first.

      Hydra's Robot Legion is fantastic. These are considerably taller than 28mm scale, and are big even on a heroic-scale standard.

      These 'bots are how we learned tinkering with the First Law is a bad idea. Older models popular for security applications came with rheostats that would adjust "how harmful does a thing have to be to be Harm" and "how human is Human, anyway?" This allowed them to rationalize the use of nonlethal force to protect Earth (and Company) interests.

      Hoooo boy. THAT was a lesson Earth learned in short order. Half of the Kuiper Belt is under the Moravec sphere of influence now. 

      Here is a Heavy Support Legionnaire on patrol with a Neural Inhibitor. Be prepared to prove you are, in fact, human. or it will shoot. Documents are not sufficient as proof.

       

      And an Optio out with a Legionnaire on perimeter duty. 



      Their commanding officer, the Centurion (memetic viruses have become widespread on the outer settlements, and some of the robots have developed...eccentricities.)






      And the entire hegemony under the literal iron fist of their gracious hierarch, Queen Mechanika.



      ALL THE BOTS!

      So I'm going to be making a diorama for a friend soon. I have a pretty solid idea of what I want to do but no idea how to go about it. I've never worked with cork before and am going to be using quite a bit of it. I want to pour water effects(?) into it but don't want the cork to soak it up. My questions are (photos to be added below for reference):
       
      How do I seal the cork so it won't absorb the resin water effects? Do I need to seal the wood I am basing it on as well? If so what is the best way to do that? What is the best glue to put the cork on the wood, sealed or not?  
      ETA: 
      How do I fix the small hairline cracks in the cork (not sure if they're visible in the picture)? Kind of related but what is the best glue for plastic to wood (I'm going to be putting the wood on top of a painted Tropicana lid)?
