Ok, I have to admit, I was eaten by a dragon and couldn't post!    Actually, I blame work, but I have been working on a dragon in my spare time.  I had this weekend off, so I got a decent amount done.

Such an awesome warm fuzzy day! Thanks!!! I know what it's like to miss clay- my poor wheel has been sadly neglected since I picked back up my hobby brushes.   I made it to the hobby store, got

My mental thesaurus sort of imploded as I was trying to think of words to describe how utterly epic this is, and how blown away I am by your skill! Your base is gorgeously organic, and it has a wonderful sense of movement to it; I keep expecting bits of it to start flowing into each other, or morphing into other things. Absolutely stunning! When I saw the very first picture of it, I thought the tree was a thumb too, and I was trying to figure out how the anatomy worked with that, given that it was left-handed fingers shown. Look at me trying to bring reality into your fantasy world. ::P:

 

Your work is very much inspiring to me, and I would love to someday replicate the starry-scape paint job you did on the figure; it's just so lovely! And watching your carving in progress has my fingers itching for clay again, I do miss it something fierce! I've got GS, but it behaves quite differently from clay, and is providing an interesting learning experience. :)

 

Keep pushing forward, this is a prize-winning piece if I may say so, and it's going to be incredible when it's finished! My only regret is that I'm not likely to see it in person anytime soon, but at least I has shiny pictures! ::):

 

Huzzah!

I could just sit and look at this aaaaaall day. :wub: There's such a wonder and complexity to it, and it's not even finished yet!!! I quite like the jewel-like eyes you put here and there, and how several of them appear to be looking at him. And I can just see the iris lines in the biggest yellow one that you were talking about. So cool!!!! ::):

 

Huzzah!

So all that movement and shifting as you change angles, AND when viewed from above the ranger is "invisible".

 

**&^%$^&** if this piece were any more dynamic, it'd be animatronic. You are really, really nailing the intersection of the 2-D and 3-dimensional aspects of the art here.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
