So after I got my really groovy pin vise from those fine folks at Hobby Lobby, I've been itching to actually pin something with it. I have tons of different stuff I could choose from but finally came upon this Ral Partha Gold Dragon from their Council of Wyrms. As I started working on it, I started photographing it, so figured I'd do a WIP out of, which I hadn't done since I'd painted up some Drow Elves a while back ago. Hopefully it's not too tedious to watch, and I've got oodles of pictures of the dragon in various states of pinning, so if you get bored, I apologize. I think I'm using this as some kind of therapy, with the hopes that if I photograph it, I'll actually have to finish it sooner or later. I'm also working on three dwarves and an Amazon chick at the same time, which I imagine will all get done before the dragon, but if you never start you'll never finish. It's a gold dragon, so my main color will end up being Palomino Gold, and his underbelly I think I'm going to start out as cream ivory, with his wings and feet being buckskin tan (I think that's the name of the color). I want to probably do the horns in some kind of brown, maybe even start out with earth brown, not sure, and will work from there. So now I've got to figure out how to do all the pictures, which I took so many of. Maybe I'll just describe it ahead of time and then put the photos in at the end. Oh well, I'll figure it out. Anyway, to start out with the model itself, pre-assembly. There's a bit of blood on him, because I ended up stabbing myself with the pin vise. Missed any vital arteries, thank you all for the concern, but after I got some holes drilled, I went and washed him off really good with soap and water.
http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/51907-wip-gold-dragon-from-pinning-to-hopefully-completion/ So from this WIP, I've finally got this dragon finished. Got the grass applied last night. It seemed like it would never end but finally it's done. Now I've got to figure out what's next. I think I actually enjoyed painting this dragon reasonably well. I also think I can appreciate Bones a little more in the aspect of their weight. This dragon, even though not too large ended up being pretty heavy and I dropped him a time or two and kept constantly knocking his tail into my lamp. I have a feeling that dropping a Bones dragon wouldn't have worried me that much and it probably would have never scratched. Anyhow, enjoy!
