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
So this is using 77108: Shadow Dragon! Thanks to Ub3r, he provided me the mini for me to compete in the Sci-fi contest =D Space dragooon! I made up a little story! "The planet V-138, a great swirling gas giant located third in its solar system, was ringed by seven moons. Of these moons, only one was inhabitable with a sentient species populating it. These were the Draconis Galaxis, a winged, four legged alien resembling the mythical dragons on Earth. The Draconis Galaxis is not a dragon, but instead an alien that resembles the mythical dragons known by humans. The ancient tales of dragons are actually envoys of Draconis Galaxis trying to make contact with the humans on Earth, but getting mistaken for great beasts and slain. Their planet is in almost constant darkness, with the 'day' being just a low-light change to the landscape as they orbit their planet, so far from the heat giving sun. The Draconis Galaxis therefore has evolved a great tolerance to cold and excellent eye sight to see through the gloom. The patterns of their wings and sides mimic the bright stars and galaxies visible in the skies of their planet, allowing them to fly unseen by prey below." Pics! Edit: Giving up on the diorama idea. I am really unhappy with the base and I'm not going to worry about it right now. Changed up the story too =P
