  1. Hi folks, I finished another dragon last week. I have been waiting for the Pathfinder Dragon to be available as a Bones miniature for quite some time, because I needed a nice blue dragon miniature. Yes, like many others in this forum playing D&D, I think a dragon with a single horn on its nose must of course be a blue one. And as such, I gave him a desert base. I'm not too proud of how it turned out. I guess it's okay for tabletop. I tried different options with his wings, but in the end the color differences are too subtle. Also, I way too lazy to paint the scales individually, so the contrast/shading could be better, especially on the arms. But again, it was suitable enough to scare my players at Xonthal's Tower :) C&C welcome!
  2. After a couple of days intense, yet incredibly satisfying painting, I have finished this peice of work, the mighty Narthrax! I have painted him in a fairly traditional scheme for a Red Dragon, and he is going to be used in a pathfinder campaign I plan on starting fairly soon. Anyway, onto the pictures! The one thing I am not certain on is the stonework for his base, the rest, I think looks pretty good.. Hopefully the pictures will show that. My lighting at the moment is horrendous.
  3. This past weekend I got the idea to improve my painting efficiency by having some small tabletop quality pieces on the painting desk that I could switch to and spend a few minutes on while I wasn't working on my main project. I prepped the four dragon hatchlings from a previous KS, and then ended up painting one of them instead of what I had planned to work on. True to concept, it is painted to tabletop without using any techniques such as blending and simply relies on the placement of colors. My assumption was that this mini will be viewed at a 45 degree viewing angle or higher and that was how I was looking at it while I painted it. The side view isn't quite as nice looking.
  4. This is Narthrax from Reaper’s Bones series. Hate is a pretty strong word so I’ll just settle with saying that I strongly dislike huge+ miniatures. They take forever to finish and use up much more paint than I think. They are unwieldy forcing me to awkwardly hold them in my apparently acidic fingers, stripping the paint on tiny strategic areas. All and all Narthrax has been a pain to paint. I hit quite a few walls and restarted I think three or four times.I shudder to think how I’m going to finish Cthulhu, Khanjira, Kaladrax and all the others. One at a time I guess… But enough of the cons, now for the pros! * Eventhough Narthrax didn’t end up as I planned it in my head, I’m still pleased with the end result. I think the color scheme works. * I’m really happy with how the teeth and the eyes ended up * My first finished dragon! As for the mouth, I tried to shamelessly steal trodax brilliant paintjob (seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php/topic/69676-narthrax/)but with cold instead of fire. It didn’t quite work since I’m not up to the task of blending but it still looks kind of nice :)
  5. I started painting Narthrax the other day, and I've worked on him a little more today... So the bulk is done, I'm mostly at details and basing and stuff atm. However, to try and make sure I stick with this, I've decided to pop up a WIP thread. So this is where I'm at =] Yep, I'm still painting on a tray, on a teatowel, on my couch =P
  6. Continuing on my quest to paint (some of) my bones dragons this year, here is a wee little beastie my players will be facing this weekend: We're ready for your photo-shoot. Smile for the camera, please Mr Kelizar! And turn... Looking good, Mr Kelizar, sir... Now flex your wings for our readers..... Yea,Baby! I added a bit more rocky outcropping to the existing base when I put him on the 3 inch round base. The most aquiline dragon I had in my Bonesium collection was the Shadow Dragon, so he got picked for duty here. To make the mini match a little closer to he official artwork, I added a bit of fin to the end of his tail. I also made another discovery: I really didn't like working with Milliput to make the base. It's just so messy. I much preferred working with the greenstuff for the tail fin. At least the Milliput was cheap.
  7. So I'm not starting this one just yet, but I figured I could get some feed back before I do start it... I was toying with several ideas, and am wondering what people think of this as the color scheme. It's my dragon Palorforthen, very coppery with black and gold and hints of purple update with the start of the mini
  8. Hi guys, I haven't posted anything for a couple of months, but I did paint some stuff. Now it's time to share. First up is my take on the green dragon Blightfang. I used him as Chuth in the D&D Tyranny of Dragons storyline. This is why he sports the typicial colors of a green D&D dragon. The elf wizard with him was used as the green wyrmspeaker, wearing the purple robes of the Cult of the Dragon. I really enjoyed painting Blightfang, although I have to admit that the base took longer than the dragon itself. I used a one dollar metal plate from the local hardware store as a 4 inch base, so its nice and heavy. Please click on the images for a more detailed 1000px version. C&C welcome!
  9. Hi guys, next up is another dragon - the great Fire Dragon from Sandra Garrity. Painted in the traditional D&D red dragon color scheme of an adult dragon and encountered in a ruined keep. I think I'll go darker for an ancient dragon (Dragons don't share set) as they are supposed to get darker with age in Faerun. Please click on the images for a detailed 1000px version. C&C welcome!
  10. Okay so my attempt at coming back a little while ago kind of fell flat on its face, and my attempts to return to painting have gone terribly. However, I visited Drifter the other day and we stopped off in London on the way to his, and we dropped into a shop which carried Reaper Bones I was so pleased I bought a new dragon and a unicorn. Hadn't been intending to buy minis at all, just to browse, but nevermind. I decided to paint the dragon today, and he's the Fire Dragon... However, I decided to try and paint him up as a white dragon, coz he's little, and for some reason I just didn't fancy painting him as a red. I'll do a red another time =P However, in painting my whites, I ended up going more frosty, and he's got notes of silver and all sorts in him. Wow my photo game is off at the moment :S but yeah, there he be. You can see in the last photo the shimmer on his wings Paints used: Citadel -Fenrisian Grey -Ulthuan Grey -White Scar -Runefang Steel -Guilliman Blue -Screaming Skull -Drakenhof Nightshade -Gehenna's Gold -Dawnstone -Mechanicus Standard Grey -Steel Legion Drab -Agrax Earthshade Primed with black Army Painter Spray. He's been popped on a 7.5cm MDF oval and based with sand, tea, and Army Painter tufts. Narthrax is sitting on the bookshelf next to me being annoyed that I started a new dragon in the middle of painting him. Nethyrmaul is staring resentfully up from the bottom shelf, loathing me for my terrible efforts at finishing his goopiness.
  11. I spotted this big dragon/dino thing on a blog page. Can anyone ID the maker or source? I would like to find one. The blogger said he found it at a garden store. Spoilered for huge 1600x1280 picture.
  12. Hey guys been away for a long while doing this amazing diorama! Dragons don't share 2! What an awesome time I had doing this the scenery is beautiful the dragon is majestic! I also decided to switch out the team in the box for a group of treasure seeking wizards and sorcerers. As always comments are wanted and appreciated!!! I Have taken many pics to capture every aspect of the model!
  13. Painted up Narthrax, the biggest beast I've done so far. I didn't back Bones 2, but this dragon was one of the pieces on my must have list, and I grabbed it as soon as it hit retail. I think it's such a great dragon sculpt. My first plan was to put him on a 75 mm base to be used as a Huge dragon in D&D, but I soon realized that was simply not going to fly, so he ended up on a 100 mm instead. Painting wise, I pretty much based it (but tried to improve) on the Pathfinder Red Dragon I did about a year ago (which was kind of a test piece with Narthrax in mind). I also messed around with some Vallejo fluorescents for the mouth and eyes. Hope you like!
  14. Since Painting Dog finally received my very late mini, I can post up the pictures I took of it. In the exchange questionnaire Painting Dog stated that they liked dragons and sic-fi stuff, so I decided to do both, because what's the point of a present if it's not awesomesauce. A space dragon was just what I wanted, but I wanted one with a gun. Like, a really big gun. So I took a chain gun from a CAV and attached it to the side of my dragon, as well as sculpting some armour onto it. I sculpted the terrain to match what is already on the bones silver dragon, then decided that it would look awesome if it was all blue, because he's on an alien planet, right? The dragon was painted purple, first a very dark purple (carnival purple with shimmer black paint), then amethyst purple brushed over that to make it look gem-like. The wings were painted with black shimmer paint, with slightly less dark nightmare black mixed with more shimmery black. The stars on the bottom parts of the wing were made with a toothpick and a silver. The belly scales, fins, and claws are all shimmer black, highlighted with darkened silver. For the gun, I wanted the barrel to look like it had recently been fired a lot, so I tried to make it look like hot metal. And I also put a little wrist computer around dragon's arm, also using a toothpick to make the design. I left it with a shiny finish because I really didn't want the matte sealer to dull the shimmer paints. In hand it looks very bright and rich, without all the shine spots that are in the picture. Of course if Painting Dog wants to put a matte finish on it, they can, but I wanted them to see the shiny version so they have both options
  15. ok this is not my best work but it started out as a bet or a dare. I was helping put the base colors on a group of Bloodreavers and I noticed that my friend had about 15 brushes from citadel and I made a little fun about how if he didn't need to buy every brush on the market he could buy more minis. he asked me how many brushes I had with me and I said 5 but 2 of those are the same detail brushes. I also said I usually just use a wash brush to apply the primer and base colors. I thought he was going to stroke out. he then challenged me to paint a mini with a wash brush. I chose the shadow dragon from the reaper bones line. I have always liked this mini and thought I would do it as a white dragon. I based the mini in snow shadow and washed it in blue ink. next I faded some of the snow shadow and highlighted it with vampiric (not sure if that is even a word) highlights. enjoy and please remember it was done with a citadel wash brush. oh I won 5 Bloodreavers on the bet.
  16. Herein I'll take up the challenge of the infamous Jabberwock from Bones 1. I already attached the wings and sculpted their joints with Magic Sculpt. This piece is well known for its tendency to sag under its own weight. Others have come up with various solutions. I intend to burrow along the length of the left leg, as indicated with the green stripe, and embed a bent jumbo paperclip for reenforcement. Then I'll have to re-sculpt the removed surface, but after doing the wing joints that doesn't seem exceedingly difficult.
  17. Hey guys back again with the mighty Deathsleet. I decided to go crazy with colour to make this dragon stick in peoples memories! I decided he would definitively be a Gold dragon in my campaign but have powerfully magic charged wing membranes! So here we have it the gaudy gilded Deathsleet! I had an absolute blast painting this great mini! As always your comments are wanted and appreciated!!
  18. Hey guys back with the fearsome Frost Wyrm!! I painted this guy in semi traditional colours! I really hope you like this one and as always comments are wanted and very much appreciated! If anyone wants to add me as a friend I would be honored! I love to discuss painting schemes!
  19. Hey guys back again and this time I painted the mighty verocithrax this amazing figure was very exciting to paint I decided to emulate Koi carp in painting the dragon I feel it fits well! As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  20. Hey guys just worked on this dragon today. A young adult silver dragon! I have added a subtle purple and blue haze over the silver to give it a mother of pearl effect! As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  21. Hey guys, I have another mini to show off! This time, I used the Pathfinder Red Dragon (89001), but painted it up as a green! C&C's always appreciated! Hope you like it!
  22. A compilation of all the photos shown of him so far, so that those on the fence about him or just wanting to admire him can see all the pictures in one place, without having to flip between different updates! I personally cannot wait to get this guy in hand and start painting him! Full 360 Video! The teaser image, our very first glimpse of the completed thing! Close up of the five heads: View of right side with ruins moved front/Left side view Left Side view (updated pic!) Front view Back view! Size comparisons Photos of the green Photos of the green with the sculptor, Julie Guthrie I hope this is useful for people!
  23. Welcome to my 12 hour dragon challenge, loosely based on Professir Buglips original 7 day challenges. Why only 12 hours you might say? Well, there appear to be quite a few of us who have difficulty stitching together two, much less seven, days of consecutive painting sessions. Therefore, I'm trying to pathfind a challenge that fits for the more time deficient among us! If you don't know what in the world I'm talking about, you need to check out the latest one to accept the challenge, OneBoot's Crazy Too Kaladrax WIP. The goblin's challenge is to paint a large centerpiece figure (Kaladrax, Dragons Don't Share 2, etc) in seven calender days. There are several rules that go with it, which you can read in the WIP linked. Since this is a different challenge, a few twists are in order. So, my rules for the 12 hour dragon challenge are: 1) No using a brush larger than a standard size 0. The Professir is going to codify this shortly, but roughly 10mm long is all you get. 2) The brush you select is the ONLY thing that is allowed to apply paint to the figure. This means just one brush! Dry brush, if you dare. 3) You have only a straight 12 hours from the start of the challenge to finish. Any breaks, meals, family outings take away from that time. Plan ahead. 4) The only prep that is allowed beforehand is boiling and setting the figure (if in Bones), fit checking the parts, pinning the legs if needed, and making accomodations on the base by drilling holes for the pins. No mold lines may be removed, no primer applied, no gaps filled, and no other work on the base is allowed. 5) Paint must be applied by only the brush bristles. No finger painting or using the handle of the brush to dot the eyes. 6) Brush may not be altered, other than from normal use. And bristles that fall out are excluded from eligibility. 7) Single painter only, no teaming up with someone to work in shifts. 8) The figure must have pigmented paint on all visible surfaces, less minor, incidental gaps where it is joined or based. It's a bit of a large set of rules, but I've been trying to find ways to "cheat" at Buglips' challenge for a while, so I've had time to think about it. I was thinking about Livestreaming on YouTube, but I think I may skip that. If there's interest, I did manage to figure it out. I have to cut it up in several blocks, and there's no point in filming me eat lunch or dinner. But let's start with the beginning picture, and then I'll see you at Monday, 5/30, at 8am (Mountain time) for the start of the challenge.
  24. Well, I finally did it. I painted a dragon. I've got T'raukzul and Stormwing both coming from the Kickstarter, and a Deathsleet and a Blightfang here still waiting for me to be brave enough to apply paint to them. I feel more confident about that now that I've done Ebonwrath. It's a pretty traditional color scheme, I know. I don't have a light box or anything fancy. Just my phone. Hence the crappy photos. I'd like to base him sometime. I'm thinking the wetlands from Secret Weapon. Put him in a swamp. I need more resources though. And I'd need to practice on something smaller to make sure I don't muck it up. Anyway, c&c welcome!
  25. This is my second submission today I have been prettying this one up for some time and feel it is ready now I am really pleased with this one!
