  1. WIP Thread here I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out. To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has. Here's the plate In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures: I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.
  2. Awesome random encounter, paraphrased: DM describes a green, toad-like beastie. It-- Me: "Is that a GREEN SLAAD?" DM: "Well, roll a Knowledge: the Planes..." Me: "No, no, I mean does it look like THIS?" [reveals recently-painted Green Slaad] The Rogue: "Isn't this like a miniature painter's dream? Having just the right mini for a completely random encounter?" Me: HUGE HAPPY SMILE.
  3. I'm painting a mini with a light source, and decided to rebase the beastie with some water effects, probably epoxy resin. I'll probably try to make the water at least slightly rough, creating interest for the eye. I woke up in a cold sweat this morning realizing that the light source should be reflected (or possibly just highlighted) in/on the water. My initial thought was to: lightly (heh) color the bottom of the pool as if it were dry and lit by the light source pour and texture the water highlight the water by drybrushing from the light source out.
  4. This is a great realistic sculpt of a Komodo Dragon, sculpted by our own @TaleSpinner. I included it in my Lost World Project WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=150&tab=comments#comment-1836397 I used UV Resin Gel from Greenstuffworld to create the water ( my first try for deeper and clear water), made the base with Vallejo Desert Sand Paste, Cork and some milliput. Added some fish and seacucumbers/seaweed from Procreate and Milliput,
  5. Translucent blue 77310, Water Weird, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  6. This was a quick and fun paint...
  7. Finished Cthulhu on Saturday, I think I'm learning to overcome my fear of highlighting too far, I still didn't go as light as people said I should. Some say you can go practically to white, but I am very hesitant to try that. I think I've made progress though. C&C welcome! Soft Lighting--- Harsh Lighting, to show detail---- And WIP thread if anyone is interested...
  8. Howdy, Something stirs at the waters edge... Kev! P.S. Gurgle...
  9. Hi Guys, Just a quick update from my Do-To List. Pretty straight foward, light base coat, heavy wash, dry brush highlights. Let me know what you think :)
  10. Entering this guy into a local Con's painting competition in the Open Category.
  11. Something that's missing from my gaming terrain collection are bodies of water, so I thought I'd better make some. Unlike roads, a river can't really just start or stop in the middle of the board, so I'll need enough pieces to cover about a two and a half metre length, enough to go from end to end of my table. This is the test piece, trying out methods and colours. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, but I feel that it's lacking something and I'm not quite sure what it is. Perhaps it's that everything is quite even in height, so there's no drama of composition. The base is 3mm MDF, sealed
  12. So I finished my D20 Rainbow Dragon Challenge as given by @Cyradis, @Sirithiliel and @Pezler the Polychromatic. Challenge is here for those who want to join. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76666-the-seers-and-a-wizard-present-a-random-rainbow-dragon-challenge/ My WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76689-glitterwolf-has-accepted-the-d20-rainbow-dragon-quest/ And finally my Dragon! I choose Ebonwrath and made him a Fairy Dragon with Butterfly wings. He just landed near a wild river to smell the flowers..
  13. Standby for massive dump in 3... 2... 1... Chopping this up into a few pieces for easy posting/consumption. Where I've been: Video games (Xumenicus#1118, if you're on Battle.net), bought a new house, running a fly fishing tournament for a treehugger non-profit, part-running my treehugger fly fishing non-profit local chapter, some other random stuff, and yeah -- here we are. I promise to paint more. Seriously. I just need to paint and sculpt more. I also need to fish more. And game more. I guess this is a thing: Apparently, I need deadlines in order to get an
  14. I was wondering if anyone has used gel medium for making water effects and how it went? I'm making a diorama and need to do water effects but the base doesn't really allow for me to pour resin. I'm making a little stream and need to figure out the best way to do this. Or if there are any other easy ways to do water effects would also be appreciated.
  15. Used Tamiya clear blue to coat the Water Weird and Reaper paints for the well and highlights.
  16. So, I wanted to try my Tamiya clear blue on one of the Bones translucent blue elementals and I chose the Water Weird. So far, so good but I'm not sure how to finish it off from here. I'm thinking of trying to get a curly-wave-white-foam effect at the extremities but I'm not sure. What do you think hive mind?
  17. My elementals. I'm going to need to redo a few pics for inspiration gallery submission, but good for now. These have only been cropped, unlike most of my pics. WIP
  18. So I decided to do some elementals real quick. I gave them base coat of matte medium - primer for earth, because base coat. Then I attempted the yellow-ning. First it looked good, so I tried to add a little more, mixed with orange tint, and ugh. I think I'd recommend doing outsides red, and then use a yellow ink w/medium as "dry" brush to pick out details. It won't look right, but a lot of the translucents really seem to be table ready.
  19. http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/2017/07/mv-challenge-2017.html?m=1 Peace and blessings, brothers and sisters. The crew at Massive Voodoo have let loose their call for their 2017 Challenge. The crew at Massive Voodoo set out challenges to their viewers in order to push our abilities past our comfort zone. This year they have two (2) Challenges for us! 1. Create a base using water effects. 2. Paint a Disney Infinity character. There are limitations in this challenge - like on the basing Challenge: the goal is to create a base with a
  20. I really like these elementals' pose and sculpting. So much more imposing and dynamic compared to most other elementals I have seen. Picking flowers... There are many more pictures at my blog Water Elemental was done as follows: first, an undercoat of clear matte varnish. This is key! I used Army Painter Anti Shine spray. Then some vallejo blue ink and when dry several light drybrushings with progressively lighter shades of pale blue up to almost pure white. Then some ancient citadel turquoise glaze here and there, all topped off with gloss va
  21. One little trick I picked up quite some time ago was to make a nail polish water bath. One can swirl together different colors, then apply it to a model to get interesting affects. I'd tried it on a couple of sprues of Bones material, but never was inspired to actually use the technique. This last weekend, I was shopping with the family and wandered into Hot Topic, where they had several interesting nail polishes. And so, I bought three different bottles, but I'll be using only one of them here, a red and black mottled polish in clear. Let's start with the basics. A completely unwashed, u
  22. I don't know if non-hobby related items are allowed, but I saw this and wanted to share. It is an Indiegogo campaign to fund providing a portable device to produce chlorine from salt and water, to be used in purifying drinking water to communities without access to safe sources. Seems worthy of my support. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/one-device-endless-impact-water#/
  23. Swimming holes can be dangerous places in Rokugan. Ive always liked painting elementals, and rokugan has many. The Clan War elementals definitely have a more sinister feel which belie their wicked demonic nature. painting water always poses a challenge. I went with a more green algae pool look with this one, to help differentiate it from my other water elementals that have a bluer hue. It was a nice color palate to work with and I had a lot of fun painting the highlights.
  24. Hey everyone, Here are some more photo's from the WIP The only thing missing is a wooden round sockel I ordered, but that will take another week at least before it will be back in stock and then shipped. She was a valentine gift for my girlfriend and she really loves her. Hope you all do too! Linked for nudity and made new photos http://myalbum.com/photo/opvqdNChQn9X/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/xzR4iBRwKGHV/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/rmSFJTGPv126/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/b3kVyjHfabHC/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/fupjpk9bHxoH/1k0.jpg Any C&C is
  25. Hey everyone, This is a work in progress for a finished piece. I finished her yesterday but couldn't post the work in progress, because it was a valentine gift for my girlfriend and she sometimes roams the forums too. She picked this model a while back when I was ordering and told me right from the start she wanted something golden green. I painted the dryad gold green and was my first real blending on a miniature that small. It turned out pretty well although my shaking hands still bother my painting skills at times. I mixed the green gold with VMC golden olive, VGC yellow olive, VGC glor
