Since beholders destroy things that they look at ...it seemed fitting to adapt the title from Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley.
I happened upon 2 beholders at my local game shop. The first was painted with a generic beholder color scheme and the second as Xanathar and Sylgar.
By Lord of the Dish Pit
In an effort to stave off "Dwarf Fatigue", figured I'd attempt something different alongside.
Wizkids Female Rogues. I've painted these before for some coworkers, and found the one on the right to be extremely frustrating do to how the cloak hung. After some lurking about on the Wzkids thread it dawned on me to use the same "hot water/cold water" technique as for Bones on them. After a resounding "D'oh!" I did so and got good results. They've been hit with some watered down Sepia Wash, and I'm pretty sure I've gotten most of the mold lines. The color scheme I have in mind is the one on the left will be a recreation of the one I gifted to Eleven Coworker, as the sculpt is basically a mini me version of her, and the one on the right will be done in the style of the Dark Brotherhood of Skyrim as her daggers have kind of a Daedric vibe to them.
Wizkids Female Barbarians. I haven't previously painted these and am currently undecided as to go with a series of browns/greys on them or if I should attempt to give a certain Stormcloak or Middenheimer vibe to them by adding blues in.
Completed these in the past week or so. Wanted the Dire Wolf's fur to look unnatural; the quality of this particular Wizkids sculpt wasn't as good as I've experienced with the few others I've painted.
The Bones Black Owlbear was a pleasure to paint; mostly just washes and dry-brushing. I've noticed that oftentimes people paint the pupils on owlbears to be too large, much like an actual owl. I've found that this diminishes the 'ferocity and scariness' of the owlbear by making it look more surprised.
