  1. Well it is a bit out of season but I sat down for the evening and worked on this pumpkin head. Lots of airbrush glazing Daler Rowney "Purple Lake" ink over the armor for the purple NMM, otherwise everything else was mixed with Jo Sonja acrylics.
  2. I finished the new Bones USA Darius in an evening and the sculpt inspired me to try some spell casting OSL, perhaps a large fireball is flying forth or a pillar of flame erupted in the room. I wanted to try a purple/orange contrast and decided to go with a more fantastical lighting and make it very saturated.
  3. My process was to paint the base colors with acrylics, then varnish (matte, satin, or gloss depending on how you want the oil wash to adhere), then applying oil paint washes over that, varnishing once more, then doing highlights of certain parts with acrylics. So the dragon was a light red brown, I thinned Burnt Umber to a wash (with white spirits) and applied it all over, then dipped small spots of purple, ultramarine, and green oil washes on while the main coat was still wet. Same went for the base, I started with grey blue acrylics, varnished, then washed with the same oils as well. Then I varnished it matte and went in and did the final highlights with acrylics on whatever details I needed. The reason I wanted to try it is that this is a bigger model with lots of detail, so the oil paint washes allowed me to slather it and let it sit for a while, then when I came back and started wiping it down it was very easy to blend certain spots I wanted as well. There are downsides like the very long drying time and fumes from white spirits, but I plan to use the process on more minis for sure. This video is a good summary of the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znrCqYFFl9Q
  4. Well I finished this lad pretty quickly using acrylics and oil washes. I wanted the more rotting undead kind of look inspired by the Dark Souls undead dragons and I think the oil washes with greens/blues worked nicely on the skin, so I recommend the technique for sure.
  5. Thanks everyone, for the roots I used the yellow stuff in this bag of preserved moss that I got from Michael's. Very useful and should last a long time at this scale.
  6. Hello all, I did a quick job on the metal DHL Graveknight and decided to do a custom base for him. The base is XPS foam with milliput built up to the general shape, and I shaped the stairs with balsa wood initially. The skulls are from the Citadel skulls pack. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
  7. Great job, the gold color is nice and the highlighting really pops his musculature. The base also ties in nicely.
  8. Fantastic work, especially after seeing how small this mini is IRL.
  9. Great job, I think the freehand on the cloak was a good addition.
  10. Hello everyone, I enjoyed painting the new Bones USA Lysette. I think on this one I tried to go for glowing Irises with a yellow green color, but perhaps against a white eye it's not as noticeable until you zoom in. I''m happy to see the other Bones USA so far seem to have quite high detail. especially the Leprechaun and the mouse on Darius the Wizard, so I look forward to painting those as well.
  11. Thanks everyone, I enjoyed doing the purples here too which are basically just lots of glazing with Vallejo Model Color Blue, Violet, Purple, and Magenta. I will need to experiment first but I was indecisive between one big design like the Elder Scroll or just a bunch of smaller writing.
  12. Hello all, it has been some time but I recently decided to knock out a quick project. I've left the scroll blank for now just in case I have an idea for something cool to put on it later on.
  13. Hello all, I have painted the Bones Black Jade Fire Champion. I went more vibrant than grim for her as an orc and also interpreted her dagger as being in a sheathe until I realized that it probably wasn't, given her stone axe, but oh well.
