I haven’t been on the forum much this year. Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord. I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers. It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job. Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements. I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started. I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing. I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon. Feb 29: prepped and primed, with some minor GS work Mar 1: base GS sculpting — LONG BREAK — Aug 2: skin lined, basecoated, and shaded Aug 6: skin initial highlights
Ever since I saw this mini I have wanted to paint it. I was given it as a gift. I hope that the giver has noticed the hours of pleasure I have enjoyed bringing this figure to life. Tough, and challenging, and yet SOO rewarding. The image of a dragon always appears in my mind associated with lava, smoke and treasure. So I decided to challenge myself (like the figure isn't enough), to create a lava base. Your comments and criticism are always welcomed, and sought after. Please leave me a comment ! So here is my interpretation of the Dragonkin Rogue. I also created a WIP while I was doing this. It is located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69750-dragonkin-rogue-dsm7455/
I have been itching to do this mini since I saw it in the catalogue, and then my son sent it to me ! Now that I have done a Tom Meier miniature again, I have earned the pleasure of painting this one. I did a slight mod when I was assembling it. I did not like the right arm so low to the ground, looked like he was running, I raised the arm up so that he looks like he is fighting. I think it has a bit more tension in it. Here is "The Dragonkin Rogue" prior to priming or adding brown liner. Just a couple of views. Some of these details are VERY shallow, almost hints. I love the folds in the materials. I am thinking of some rich, and deep blues in those shadows, and lighter blues for highlights. Beyond that, strap on your seat belts.
