Landwryms are cunning wingless predators that ruthless scour their environment for prey, some claim that they represent a more primitive ancestor of dragons .... they lack magical abilities or the breath weapons of cousins but are well adapted to their environments. The gargantuan Desert Landwyrms are serpentine with yellow-brown scales that blend with their natural surroundings. Their powerful front and rear claws are normally held tight against the body. They are cunning and patient predators who lie in wait for victims. Conversion included removal of wing slots and sculpting scales C&C of painting welcome, I would love to make further adjustments. painted obsessively over a week.
So when I unpacked this Big Boi in 2017 I thought he would look really cool without wings. but I'm it will be a lot of careful work to carve off the joins and resculpt him, I just don't think I'm ready. In February I did the scales for my verocthulu conversion, and thought "I could have done that better." So this is better. This Dragon will be the colors or earth. Burnt Umber base, and a hide scattered with Burnt Sienna, Tusk Ivory, and Leather Brown with ochre and NNM gold colors on the belly. perhaps some cool gray or blue washes in the shadows. The scales will be individually shaded, and the hide below staying the color of brown liner, or umber in the well lit areas. So far its been about 4 hrs of work in sculpting, cleaning, gluing and mold line removal. it took 45 min just to cover him in brown liner. He is a really big dragon, and I have no idea how long this is going to take. but im getting a little obesessed - I don't want to schedule a meeting or go grocery shopping, I want to add more paint... this feels like how I ended up with a dragon named Insomnia - who was painted almost entirely between 10pm and 7 am. I kept waking up with new color ideas. Or the DDS2 dragon who I spent 2-4 hours a day painting for a solid week, and another hour a night for the week after. The last picture is my inspiration for the scale colors - the eyes will be much simpler than this.
So I'm currently in the stages of prepping Marthrangul for a contest. I'm also painting the Frost Giant Queen as a backup entry. So once I get started of love all the C&C I can get. I have a little less than a month to do him in.
