It is written in the Book of Rites that jade is more precious and nobler than gemstones. Confucius said to Zi Gong that 'nowhere would people not cherish jade, because they respect and admire virtue.' This is wisdom. And is it not also written by sages of later days that "It's not easy being green"? Point is, this Foo Dog was not easy to paint, but I think it's worth it. Took advice from http://theminiaturespage.com/workbench/149837/ on how to get the semi-translucent effects. I don't think I succeeded as well as Zaphod there did, but there are a lot of little fiddly curlicues on the mane. And a good layer of 'Ardcoat also helps. Appearing with the Foo Dog is one of Bombshell's Sidekicks: Ping the Panda. Bamboo can be used for smacking as well as snacking. And here's some more Ping:
This is an Aasimar Summoner and his Eidolon that I painted up for my new Pathfinder campaign. I'm pretty sure the foo dog is supposed to be a statue, but eidolons are typically otherworldly creatures, so the blue skin and gold mane makes him look bizarre enough. I'm really happy with the color scheme and how they compliment each other. It might be a little hard to tell from the pics, but his hair has a gold colored hue and the eyes are glowing purple to match the eidolon. I tried to create a glowing effect coming from the staff, as well as his outstretched hands. I also attempted some minor photo editing to brighten the pictures up, as the lighting in my house is pretty weak. Overall, I'm pretty proud of this pair, but I will probably touch up a few things here and there. Any tips on glowing or magic effects that I could add to the summoner or eidolon would be appreciated. Thanks for any comments or critiques!
I enjoy the fact that bones 3 had a good selection of minis that I can paint up for my Rokugan collection. Technically, foo creatures don't exist in Rokugan (except as possessed statues), but I think they make perfect good aligned ally monsters. It was nice to finish something from Bones 3; it helps me justify Bones 4.
