This little guy will be a wedding cake topper at a friend's wedding this week. I wish I had the time, energy, and ability to do a better job, overall; it feels in many ways incomplete. But I really do like how the wing pattern and spine turned out. I really struggled painting his body, and frankly I'm hoping nobody gets around to looking at his legs and feet. He does look like a nice little fire drake from the top, I think. This was another exercise in not trying to be bigger than my britches.
This was the Young Fire Dragon that I painted for my mother for Christmas in a crazy panic after I realized that I'd forgotten to paint something for her after deciding that would be the main part of her Christmas present. Oopsies.
A good 60% of the time that I spent painting it was spent working and reworking the wings. I didn't get a very good picture of the outside of the wings and it's no longer in my possession.
I'm not a fan at all of the base that I threw together - despite that fact, one of the things my mother said about the gift (which she loved, btw) was "the meadow looks so perfect!" Ah well, I already know that I'm tough on myself.
I also wish that I had time to refine some of the highlighting and on the scales and the gold definitely needs highlighting.
Overall, however, I'm pretty proud of the way that it turned out.
Comments and Criticism are always very welcome!!!
Hello everyone , I am new to the boards and just started out painting Reaper miniatures. I'm not new to painting though as I have dabbled in painting several Games Workshop lines before, but I am coming back after a long 10 year break to painting. So it very much feels like I have some relearning to do.
anyways Monday I had started out on my first Reaper Mini project from the Bones line : the Young Fire Dragon. Taking my time with the project so far I have only accomplished the basecoat of Army Painter Dragon Red. On the white miniature it is turning out very bright red and in some lighting almost pink. I am hoping that when I ink it , it should take some of the brightness away and tone it down a bit.
feel free to comment and let me know what you guys think so far :)
I submit, for your viewing pleasure (I hope) a young Fire golden dragon fishing for his next meal.
Bones 77026 young fire dragon. Boiled the wings and bent them out. They are still in position 4 days of hot and humid weather later.
As requested I have added a salmon to the shot (be gentle I have limited sculpting skills)
