    Xanathar

    Thanks for the renewed interest in this thread. To answer CosmoKramer, I believe used Reaper Suntan Flesh & Caucasian Flesh on the mouth, used a brown wash over it, then went back and cleaned up/highlighted. The transition from mouth to body is largely dry-brush/stippling. The blue is actually Bright Turquoise with a blue wash over it. Then I think I dry-brushed the turquoise back over it and manually painted more highlights. I'll post the reverse when I get home. My one regret I have on this guy, is not doing more cleanup on the model itself before painting.

    Red Dragon (71010)

    Started on this guy this weekend. Can't say i recommend this model unless you really like building models. There is a huge amount of warping necessary to get anything to fit. I'm really surprised I got any paint on it this weekend. Very pretty model, but I like to paint not fight with pins and superglue. These pieces have to fit together so lots of heat is necessary.

    Ah wings mounted. Now I can get back to painting.

    An organized painter, is not the way I would describe myself.

    Red Dragon (71010)

    Ha! Thanks, I was on a roll hurting myself this weekend. I discovered that a hand drill can cut just as bad as an Exacto knife.
  6. Painting cold stuff. Super quick Yetis and remorhaz.

    Ma'al Drakar

    Finally had a chance to do a final'ish pass on Ma'al Drakar. Still need a bit more work on claws and some touch ups.

    Ma'al Drakar

    Credit where credit is due, my painting is heavily inspired by the official painting. I believe Michael Proctor is the original artist, but If I'm incorrect please let me know. I painted this, "mini" to use in game play, so she will be used as Tiamat in future epic battles.

    Ma'al Drakar

    Thanks very much! Eyes are always what I stress on the most, and there's no hiding them on a model this big.

    Ma'al Drakar

    Thanks! I think the darkness of the green and blue is in part due to my terrible photography skills but I may do a bit more brightening. Here's a slightly better pic: One painting tip I have in regards to brightness. This is where ones workspace lighting is critical. I tend to paint under really bright lights so i can see detail, but that can totally through you off. Minis that look great under the bright lights might end up looking very dark under normal lighting. I try to back off the light at some point and take the model into different lighting conditions. Of course bulb spectrum can also dramatically change the perceived color as well.

    Got some traction on the pile of minis I have been asked to paint.

    Reaper Bones 77541 Carrion Worm

    A friend of mine hired me to paint a giant pile of minis, and I have finally got a chance to start on some. My direction for this guy was, "Make him gross."

    Reaper Bones 77541 Carrion Worm

    Thanks All! Very true about the lighting, and my photography in general. These were taken at my desk at work with little care. When I get further into this set of minis I'll work on taking some better photos.

    ReaperCon Sophie 2018

    Got Sophie this weekend and got a good start. I’ve been painting large minis lately so I needed a break. This is obviously heavily inspired by Wren’s, (Rhonda Bender) official painting but sort of flipping the hues of the dress and wings. Just started playing with the designs on the brestplate segments. I have already made one attempt on the screen left that I rejected and have started to paint out. I may just paint them out altogether if I can't pull it off.

    ReaperCon Sophie 2018

    Thanks! Most of the minis I paint are used quite a bit in game play, so I haven't ever done any fancy bases. However, seeing all the wonderful things people on this forum have done is inspiring, so I think she will get a special base at some point.
  16. Got some actual work done on Demogorgon, still very early. I started with playing with the red and blue Mandrill colors, for his face but I'm not sure they work with the green version, so I ended up painting it out. I may try them again when I am further along. I do love Mutilatedlips version with the Mandrill colors, but I think the orange head and torso on his version sets it off better than the green will. Check out his version if you haven't seen it. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75324-demogorgon-dd-galeforce-nine/
  17. Finally had time to do some work. Went back to the red and blue face, starting to like it. Still lots of cleanup, blending and highlights to do, plus the effects.

    Steel Hero Forge mini

    I was asked to paint my friend's steel Hero Forge mini. The character is a Half-Fairy Werewolf Drunken Master, so no judgment on the design of the mini. I have painted 5 or 6 of the, "cheap" and expensive plastic minis from Hero Forge but this is the first metal one. I have to say they are tough but as rough as 60 grit sandpaper, and you lose almost all fine detail. In the picture the metal one is on the right, the priest in the center is the cheap plastic, and the bard on the left is the HQ plastic. Still yet to see a brass one.

    Steel Hero Forge mini

    Thanks! She's my wife's character in our cam paign, and she designed the heroforge mini. It's probably still my favorite face I've painted.

    Steel Hero Forge mini

    Thanks! Yeah the plastics aren't too different. There is just a little bit more fine detail, especially in the faces, from the HQ black plastic.

    Gorgeous. I want to paint this mini. And that sounds like my kind of campaign.
  22. Thanks! I will be trying the blue and red again tonight. And yes, it's not very mini.

    Blood Effects

    Yes, it dries very glossy and semitransparent. It's even hard to tell that's it's dry.
