Gave the eyes a go.

Walnut Brown, Linen White, Walnut Brown pupil.  Getting it to here took 2 tries.

 

The sculpt makes this technique space the eyes apart a little too much, but it’s as good as I could hope for, so going to keep it.  As an aside, it looked acceptable and even good when it was just Walnut Brown, like the helm cast a deep shadow on his eyes.7809118E-BCE8-4ECF-A196-F1338ADF0A49.thumb.jpeg.73ff922798aa2e914c8e20247af66f33.jpeg

A little progress.

These skin shots were taken 2 weeks ago.

Reapplied Rosy Shadow, then layered in Rosy Highlight, finally Fair Skin.

More recently, I worked on his linens.

Reapplied Khaki Highlight, worked in layers of solid white.

Thanks, wolf.

 

Here is the work on the wraps/leathers.

Uniform Brown reapplied, then lightened in two stages with Khaki Highlight.

And the greens.

I reapplied Christmas wreath, then grass green, then 50/50 grass green/MSP Sample olive greenish, then full sample.

 

I tried to paint the base like grass with random hashes in the same direction.

Some more progress after a hiatus:

I did his leather armor bracer things.  I think it was Ginger Cookie and Khaki Highlight.

 

Then I worked on the copper nmm.  Tarnished Copper, New Copper, Linen white, and Pure White.  Then I glazed a very very thin layer of Mahogany Brown to knock it down.  I still need to apply some white pinpoint highlights to amp up the shine.

Made some more progress.  The Iron NMM is Cloudy Grey with HD Solid White and Solid Black.

 

The beard is the Carrot Top Red Triad.

 

I’m mostly happy with the iron, but parts of it are not doing it for me.  The shapes of the spiked shoulder pad, weird axe shape, and sword fuller with runes all proved trickier than I wanted.

 

I might go back to touch it up later, but am calling those parts done for now.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.  I just feel like I’m leaving too much black and not enough gray.

      Been painting Blood Rage again, for a friend, and thought I'd post the pics of what I got so far for the big guys. Most of the shading and detail work done, planning on making the skin less glossy by finish and still need to base.
      Any C&C welcome.








       
      P.S. "Frost giant says pls no I'm not ready."

      Good day everyone, this was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Paint Your Giant contest. 77178, Fire Giant Warrior, Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It is mounted on a 74027, Ruins Vignette Base, a resin base sculpted by Patrick Keith. This model is huge, 7cm high and 13cm wide with the sword. I did some minor conversion on it.   A heavy thundering sound come crushing down the ruined hall. You see orange and red lights dancing between the pillar supporting the stone roof. In the glimpse of a moment, all hell break loose as a dark skin colossus burst from the rubbles wielding a towering incandescent blade. He lands next to you smashing the large tiles of the floor. You are paralyzed in fear as he turns gazing in your direction with fire in his eyes. Desperate, you wonder if you've gone too far exploring this ancient Undermountain realm.

      For my upcoming Dragon Age campaign.
       
      I thought they looked like they need to pee, but a buddy elsewhere described them as Bone Strippers, and now I can't unsee that.

      This was my entry for the Reaper Fan Facebook Page Paint Your Giants Contest.
      This is the biggest thing I ever painted not on a canvas.
      The last time I entered one of these, I felt like it would have done better if the base told more of a story, so that is what I tried to achieve with this one.
      I wanted it to portray REVENGE!
      The Jarl had his left eye gouged out by a young upstart white dragon.  He healed, regrouped, and hunted down the dragon to enact his revenge.
      I hope you like it.
      The final results have now been posted.  He placed 4th behind some mind-blowing work.
       

       
      I wanted some orange on the model to play against the blue skin, for color theory.
      Originally, it was going to be glowing runes on the rock and skulls, but I abandoned that for the sake of time/completion.
      I settled with orange tones in the leather.
       
       
       
      I wasn't really sure how to get the TMM of the crown to look like a gouge, or how to make his blue skin look like a scar.
      I'm not entirely sold on the result, but I'm sure I'll try again some day on a different model.
       
      The Monster Manual suggests blue skin with white/gray/dirty blonde hair is the usual coloration.  I tried to go to full white for the highlights of the face to make it the focal point.
       

       
      I wanted him to look like he was wearing a polar bear pelt, and that all the fur trim was also polar bear.
       


      I tried to make it look a little muddy on the bottom, and on his shoes.
       
       This was how I wanted to weather the inside of the bear skin, to make it look like it had that dried cracked appearance.  Not sure how well it shows up in the picture.
       
       
       
      These were some WIP shots.  The black and white was to figure out how to highlight the sword.
      I wanted the sword and stone items to look like shiny flint.  I hit the sword and most of the other stone items with high gloss varnish to help sell the effect.
       
       
      The front and back of the sword.
       
      Finally, some more details of the base and the white dragon victim.
       


       

       

       
      I wanted to base the dragon as a purple in the recesses, similar to the effect going on on the cover of Hoard of the Dragon Queen module.
      This was the BONES Temple Dragon I sacrificed.  He is smaller, but his tongue sticks out perfectly to sell the dead dragon effect.  And he's not as expensive to replace as Deathsleet!
      I pained his eyes half-rolled into his head to complete the idea.  I tried to freehand some anatomy on there: vertebral body, muscle groups, esophagus, carotid arteries/jugular veins.
      I also tried to be accurate with the blood spray coming from both arteries, and didn't want to go too crazy with the gore.  Finally, I wanted it to look like his hot blood had melted some of the snow.
       
      Overall, this was a wild ride.  The early part of the contest saw him at #2.  Then he gave up some ground and sat at #3 for a long time.
      Then another Frost Giant (Queen) made a great surge at the end to unseat me out of #3 into 4th place.
       
      To be honest, there were so many awesome paint jobs, I'm just humbled and honored to be in the top 20.
      Thanks for looking.
      C&C Welcome.
