  1. Had this fellow finished for some time. Hard to take decent photos of it since it's so big: I used this blue and purple snake as my inspiration for the color scheme:
  2. Hi all, I finished up my Dragons Don't Share diorama that I've been working on for about three weeks. It's on display at a local game shop, so apologies for the pictures not being super high quality. You can see the in-progress pics over at my WIP thread at: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60821-77381-dragons-dont-share-2014-wip-blackgray-and-red-dragon/ The heroes' color choices were done to match the five factions playing a role in the current D&D public play storylines.
  3. I thought he would be one of the easier dragons to paint. I was wrong. Bones 2 dragons make Bones 1 dragons look like kittens.
  4. This is the third of a series of five dragons I painted in the last two months. (Well, technically one of them isn't a dragon.) It's the Shadow Dragon, one of the two smaller (only about elephant size) dragons from the first Bones Kickstarter set, "Here Be Dragons," sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I painted it up not quite knowing where I was going, starting with aquatic thoughts, adding stripes, and then going over the cliff into total madness. WIP thread here.
  5. So starting a new WIP thread just for my Wyrmgear, who is being painted up as a rusted junk heap. I want to figure out a way to get his wings to attach at angles, like I have seen others do Here's the progress so far, covered in so many layers of paint that there is no way I can tell you how I got to this stage....[originally he was going to be shiny...until he made me mad] Edit for a spelling mistake And now a story: It seemed like such a good deal. Braythick Bearhammer the dwarf mapmaker/treasure salvager had been poking around some gnome's antique dealings stall and seen it standing there, looming in the back of the tent. It was massive, a masterwork of engineering, gone to rust and ruin. Still, it could potentially be useful to the dwarf. It did after all have a blade upon its tail, and long legs. Wings too, that was nice. It could carry his tools! Yes, it had been a brilliant plan. Something to carry his tools, and any 'rescued' loot he found in abandoned ruins. Something to defend him from the wilderness [and natives of said ruins that might disagree with his right of salvage]. And it had been a steal. The gnome had been desperate to get rid of the thing. It seemed too good to be true! Something like this could save him the cost of hiring lackeys to carry his stuff, of hiring thugs to protect him. It wouldn't need to eat, or sleep, it could guard him while he slept. Definitely too good to be true. And it was. Because apparently it had a few screws loose. Literally and figuratively. It had the attention span of a jackdaw. Braythick did not want the confounded thing to get distracted by a butterfly while he was trying to fight off a mountain lion or troll. And yet, as he unslung his hammer to remind the local natives of his right to found loot, the darn thing would turn around and trot off without a care in the world, leaving Braythick to run in an undignified manner after yelling at it. And most likely, the gnome that sold it was laughing as he counted his coins, grateful to be rid of the troublesome, ancient war machine
  6. Recently I painted up some dragons and this critter. WIP thread here. This is about how big it is compared to Reaper's 02599 Frorigh: Frost Giant and 03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate:
  7. I went on a dragon painting binge a couple of months ago. This is Sandra Garrity's Dragon of the Fire (or rather, its more casual cousin the Bones Fire Dragon). I started with some thought of it being a desert dweller and it developed from there. WIP thread here, including a few false starts.
  8. This is the fourth of the five dragons I've painted since February (which, by the way, are the first dragons I have painted since roughly 1985). Deathsleet is one of the bigger ones. I underpainted the entire dragon black. All of the color is from iridescent or interference paints which use the optical properties of microfilms of Titanium White on microscopic flakes of mica. The result is rather like the rainbow on an oil film or the inside of a nacreous seashell, thus I called this an "Abalone Dragon." (There was a wash of turquoise blue pigmented paint early in the process to smooth out some rough transitions. Apart from that, it's all optical effects. Oh, right, and I painted the rocks it's standing on normally.) It is extremely tricky to photograph this paint because the color effects change based on angle and lighting. I have a few shots of the same perspective with different lighting to show how it can change.
  9. This is the last of the five dragons I have painted this spring. I was trying experiments and some worked out and some didn't. Anyhow, this is Sandra Garrity's "Ebonwrath" in Bones painted up as a green dragon. There's something wonky with her left wing. It looks like it was clamped too hard during the manufacturing process and got a bit bent. Boiling and reshaping proved futile. So I think of it as her left pinky wing bone got broken at some point and did not heal properly. WIP thread here. (You can see the "broken" wing bone best in this picture):
  10. So. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. Dragon number two (going alphabetically) is 77102, Ebonwrath. I wasn't trying to make a specific "look" for any dragon. When I asked my husband the GM what colors he would like to see in dragons, he said "variety." Looking at this figure's shape, I thought of alligators and malice and green swampiness. So I figured I'd try -- or at least start -- painting it green. My painting method is pretty high-wire without a net, so I don't know what it will look like finished, only a region that I'm aiming for. It may not even be green, in the end. We'll see. At any rate, my first painting session I was doing five (count 'em) dragons, all with wings detached for ease of painting. So my first order of business after a layer of Reaper's Brown Liner, the wonder primer that Buglips identified, was to make sure each dragon and its matching wings had an underlayer in the direction of the color I was thinking of painting it. So here's Ebonwrath, first with a layer of Brown Liner, then with a wash of transparent warm dark green mixed from Phthalo Green and Burnt Sienna. Its color at the moment is a very deep green, like seaweed or badly overcooked spinach. This is only an underlayer. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, the Fire Dragon, the Shadow Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm.

First up is Deathsleet, which I am thinking of painting in iridescent colors over a black underpainting. I was inspired by this beautiful version of Reaper's gryphon. First, I primed the figure with Reaper's Brown Liner, which as has been discovered, makes a fantastic first layer on Bones figures (I am keeping the wings separate for ease of painting). Then I painted the figure black. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Ebonwrath, the Fire Dragon, the Shadow Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm. Stay tuned.

The Frost Wyrm is pretty cool and I've been looking forward to painting it. I see it as camouflaged in the rocky ice fields of the deep north, so I'm going to try that sort of a color scheme, whites and greys and blues and violets. For the time being I have painted it up, first with a base coat of Reaper's Brown Liner, then some white and a little blue mixed from Phthalo Blue and Titanium White. This is to help spot the pieces as well, since I have left some of it unglued for ease of painting. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Fire Dragon, and the Shadow Dragon.

So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. I didn't know the names of the dragons when I decided what colors to make them. Since I'm painting five, to keep up interest I'm using a slightly different approach to each one. This one, at least for the moment, I am imagining as something warm and desert-like, gold with red undertones. When I looked at it I thought of brass or gold dragons, although I don't know if I'm going to actually attempt metallics on it. As you might have gathered, I improvise a lot when I am painting. If I were a writer I would be what they call a pantser. Anyhow, to make sure I didn't get all those unglued wings mixed up, the first painting session I made sure to put a wash on each dragon and its wings of a major color element I had planned for it. So after I primed everything with Reaper's Brown Liner, this one got a terracotta red wash of pure thinned-down Iron Oxide Red. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Shadow Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm.
  14. So many dragons to paint.
  15. OK here is another bones I did recently. I wanted it done for a high level game we were playing but never finished it in time. I have seen some of the others on here that have been done and borrowed from a couple. Of course I am not up to there level of detail as I am just getting back into painting. Not saying I will get as good, but practice does help. Also I need better mags to see. It's Strange that the camera on my tablet here picks up so much more detail then I can see with my eyes with what gear I have. Now as you can hopefully see I tried to make it look like it is made of my thrall and adamantium. This was going to be used by my technologist character but now too late. So I will have to hope I can work it in with my gnome I will be playing later. Might put butterflies or some other gnomey thing on the shields. I also tried to make the wings look like they are leather with a weathering look. I used gloss cote on the body and flat cote on the wings membrane. Joe <EDIT> un inverted the last to pics to what they should have been.
  16. I painted him blue instead. I tried to fade the green on his wings in but it didn't work very well. Any tips?
  17. So, continuing on my metallic dragon set, we have Narthrax the Golden. And yes, I can see where his tail didn't quite fill in perfectly. I'm not playing with greenstuff yet. :P
  18. Alright. I finished my Blightfang though now I have to create the dragon she is going to represent and rename her to that.
  19. And to catch me completely up, my first painted dragon. A Secret-Sophie gift (thanks, LittleBluberry!). Sandra Garrity's Fire Dragon, Bones version. I had a blast with her. Kept it simple as I could with the dragon itself. Had all the real fun with the base. Mashed it out of Super Sculpey and then of course cooked it. Cooked another small piece to set her on better, honestly couldn't believe it worked. Decided to leave her detachable in the end so I could transport et al. Painted brown base coat, then went with gray for rocks. Greens and blues for the stream bed. Added some gravel and sand. And some Army Painter tufts, just a few. The water started out as Mod Podge--was working well but got my hands on some Realistic Water so switched to that to finish. Started with Water Effects but then pulled back. Lot of pictures trying to get decent ones; sorry. Moved the best one, pretty much, up front. Thanks for looking. Comments and suggestions and so on welcome.
  20. I always wanted to paint a white dragon. Now I have. He glows eerily on my shelf.
  21. Finally he's done! After trying to initially paint him shiny and metallic, and having him laugh at my efforts, I decided to just ruin him on purpose. Slowly managed to do passable rust after soooooo many layers of paint! But here he is, enjoy! PIctures of winged and wingless versions. The wings will remain unattached and only put on if the husband wants him winged for a game. Base is from Dreamforge.

  22. Hi, I'm planning on painting one of my Bones II dragons as a white dragon. I'm thinking of using Factory White and some Snow Shadow for the underbelly and wing webbings. Anyone have any tips for painting white. I guess my big questions are, Should I undercoat the white? What color should i use as a wash? Should I wash it? Any tips would be much appreciated.
  23. Have people been pinning the wings of their Bones dragons? How about the large ones, like Ebonwrath? How well do those wing joins hold up to regular handling, or holding together while painting?
  24. Over the weekend, I decided to tackle Narthrax the dragon from Bones 2. I really like the pose and imagined him as a young dragon hissing at you. So I decided to paint him somewhat bright with hues of yellow, greenish blue and white. I'v always had trouble with yellows and white... Never sure how to shade it to make it clear enough but not too striking... (any recommendation welcome) Anyways, here is what I came up with. Introducing Narthrax, the Jungle dragon: C&C welcome.
  25. Now I got my idea for how I am going to do Blightfang from her scales. I might let you guys see if you can figure out where I am going while I do thins instead of telling you. I have not decided quite fully yet Anyways. Here she is primed up. I used Brown liner ANd here she is with the first ink I am doing on her, but its does not seem to do much so I'll will be skipping this on other parts. Its likely due to the fact the colors are too close. I used chestnut ink Sorry. My cats like to try and photobomb my pictures and so I had to keep them out while keeping the camera steady. Not totally successful at that
