  1. Traditional armor of the ceremonial guard of Empress Surea: Light of the West, Keeper of the Waters, Bringer of the Law, Protector of the Empire.
  2. Just stepped up to a 250 EB, 166 EB free for anyone who needs it.
  3. A couple favorites of mine are: 280, nightmare black - this is a really dark blue that is richer and somehow darker than real black. Great for black cloth. 258, blond highlight - a very bright tan. I use this to highlight all sorts of things, including hair and fur, but also cloth and yellow metals.
  4. Most of the base coat is done. I've dry brushed and outlined some silver onto the black metal bits and started to clean up the white details.
  5. After some google and pinterest searches for interesting fish colors, I settled on a red and black palette, with a little white. I've just started on the basecoat. I think this one is going to be fun.
  6. I started with a yellow base coat and then painted red areas wherever I wanted rock. Then I went over the red with a layer of "nightmare black", which is a very dark blue, leaving a very thin line of red between the black and yellow. I did the black last because it's hard to paint bright colors on top of black, and I also feel like I have more control over thin lines if I can do the "background" color last and cut in. I do something similar when lining. I do the lining first and then paint the two colors on either side of the line, so the line can be very thin. For the wings I did it a little differently. I started with red and then painted the cracks, and then put on the black. The wing cracks are nearly all free hand, so it helped to be able to paint them directly instead of painting the negative. I did end up having to go back over some places with red to clean up the crack edges before doing the black.
  7. I finished my first mini from Bones 2. Here is a link to the WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60091-77261-nabassu-as-a-molten-gargoyle/
  8. I made some progress on the head and hair. I also added some white highlights to the cracks.
  9. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Leader of the Rats, I was actually considering using crackle medium for the wings. I think I'll give it a try and see how it goes. Corporea, I love your elemental. The blending on the glow around the cracks is beautiful. I see what you mean about the teal, I'll have to give that a try. Mad Jack, Yeah that's a good idea.
  10. My goal with this guy is to make him look like he's made from molten rock, kind of breaking apart and cracking up. He'll be lit mostly from inside, which means he's kind of painted backwards, with the highlights in the recesses and shadows on the outside surfaces. I'm not sure how well this will turn out, but it'll be interesting to see. I started with a basecoat in Pale Saffron. Next I blocked out the rock sections in Brilliant Red, leaving thin lines of yellow for the cracks. Then I covered the red with Nightmare Black, leaving a thin line of red next to the yellow. I'm alternating back and forth between red and black as I go. Here's how he looks so far. Next up, face and wings. Comments and suggestions are appreciated.
