I need your opinions!

Recommended Posts

Howdy guys! I'm painting a dragon soon and am having problems coming up with a color scheme. I thought I'd get some opinons first. So, I slapped some paint on a few dinos I had lurking around. What do you think? (I apologize for the fuzziness. I was racing the death of my camera batteries.)

And the other pics:

Conga line right.

Based on a garter snake. (This one is a bit washed out, his base color is a nice cream.)

Forest camo?

Um, this one's just from boredom.

The multicolored one would make a great red dragon--cream for bony bits, and blue for highlights (for example, the wings look really cool if you transition from red to grey-blue).

 

I think the black and white is actually my favorite, but I'm not sure how it would look as a dragon...Might end up looking sorta like a statue.

 

Finally, the middle one would work alright, but I think it would look too simple compared to the others.

Hmm... color choice is often the key to a good, or bad mini. So many of my mini's have hit the dunk tank because of bad colors.

 

I'd say I like the middle one the best, but I'd have to reserve my judgement until I saw the dragon. You gotta match the paint to the model, I think. Which dragon are you picking up?

I think I like #2 the best, but like Polo said it might not be right for your dragon. You might want to search the show off section here or on CoolMiniOrNot.com for it. You will often find different color schemes for each mini.

I think I'm going to do a pattern, (although I may have to dip him from frustration and do a solid color!) and now I get to decide... Rattlesnake vs Gartersnake! whooo. And thanks to the miracle of graphics programs, I have pics! Well, headshots really.

I'm thinking rattlesnake, but then the garter snake looks cool, too. Either way, it's really got a lot of potential. Good luck and I hope you can resist the urge to dip!
