Love the snow and eyes and you pulled off the black fur.

 

The one thing is you have blood on the snow but I don't see blood on its maw.

 

the camera angle doesn't show it but the fur under his chin is soaked in it.

Very well done. Usually blood doesn't work for me on a model but you pulled it off.

 

thanks! i thought i screwed it up at first but then i looked up crime scene photos from the midwest and it turns out I got the bloody snow near perfect.

an interesting note for y'all....

 

this casting did NOT include the missing ear. that wasn't a conversion that was how I got him. I thought it looked appropriate for what i was painting and went with it.

I think you really did nail the bloody snow appearance, and I can see the blood around the maw..I think it's just our favorite camera fu issue.

I like the way you've tied the miniature into it's environment (read, another vote for the frost - Consider this idea duly stolen)

 

And yes, blood on the teeth, blood on it's ruff, blood on the snow. . . . It would be easy for this much blood to look overdone and cartoonish, but you've managed to pull it off. How did you apply the blood to the snow?

I might put up a different angel so the base can be seen better as there is a bit of leftover someone right were the majority of the mess is.

How did you apply the blood to the snow?

I go through the whole basing process:

1) Glue Cujo to a cavalry base (the fact i had to say cavalry should give you an idea of his size btw).

2) Green-stuff around Cujo's broccoli base to even it out. Push some dead things, Mikey, dead things into the greenstuff (two skulls and a rib cage).

3) Use a mixture of Elmers Glue-All (generic PVA glue) and white deco sand to add texture to the green-stuff.

4) Paint the entire base with Astronomican Grey. Use a slightly watered down Scab Red on the rib cage and create the 'flow' out from it letting it soak into the sand texture. Attempt futilely to add some additional detail to the rib cage.

5) Apply way too much PVA to everything but the rib cage. Sadly the skulls are long lost at this point but it’s comforting knowing they are their anyway.

6) Stuff model into tray with EE snow basing material (which their own retail minion tried to warn me awayfrom btw). Unfortunately the result looks BLUE instead of white. Wtf??

7) Use watered down Blood Red over the top of the snow where the underblood is. The brightness is a little much but before I mess this up any further…

8) Google “bloody snow” and find that I did pretty good, I just need to darken it a bit where the mess is the thickest.

9) Use watered down white to wash the snow basing to make it look like snow. No, I am not joking.

10) Spray with satin polyurethane sealant, let dry for 24 hours, spray with generic matt acrylic sealant to take the shine off.

That looks great! I think I may have to steal the idea for an old mini that needs touching up.

 

Mm-hm.

 

But remember; Only a hack borrows other peoples ideas.

 

. . . Artists steal. Wholesale.

      Terezinya was painted up to be a vampire character in my dnd game, the rest are fairly self explanatory. 
       
      The translucent green Bones were given a coating of Grass Green India Ink and then had details highlighted out. They're retained their translucent quality while having better detail visibility.

      So, I've been a participant in an exchange type thing on Twitter for quite a while now. It is known as "The Box of Many Things" and is a low cost to no cost geeky, nerdy Secret Santa type exchange that takes place every other month. this is for my April Thinger. We use the term "Thinger" to describe those who are in the exchange, specifically the person you are sending to or are receiving from, which are rarely the same person. They even have international group for those outside of the states, too. Art is a common thing to send as it is very low cost to make and usually low cost to mail too! So behold my badly repainted D&D Minis!
       
      So, my Thinger plays two PCs, a Druid and and a Dryad Warlock and I was going to try to paint a mini for one of those but ran into a roadblock. I couldn't find a mini for either of them! Also, they are an excellent artist and provided ARTWORK of their PCs for reference! I wouldn't be able to do justice for them at all! So I dug through the 4 pages of info they gave to find something I could paint successfully and not take far too long to do so! And I found that The Druid likes to become a Dire Wolf a lot and the Dryad has a Winged Cat for a Familiar so i got to work! Here they are!
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Hope you enjoyed them!

      A little Easter Sunday painting for the game table.  These were from Bones1.      They are risen! They are risen! Tell it out with fearful voice. They have burst the darkest prison; Let the whole earth feel remorse. Death is risen; man will flee!   My photos are as bad as my verse, sorry.

      Just a pair of rotty zombos I painted up in late 2014 or early 2015. I like them because of the period inspecificity: they work equally well as peasant fantasy zombies or pulp-era modern zombies.

      The crouching one (Reggie?) looks particularly famished for braaaaaaaaaaiiiiiins.
