Well I'm not sure if it's intended to reference a specific narrative, but it would appear as though this fellow killed his creator at the moment of his completion, hence the hammer and other tools along with the rather fresh looking bones.

Oh wow, I love it!! He looks like he's been carved out of malachite, or maybe dark green agate. Dark green is my favorite color, I may have to steal your color scheme idea! :D I love the glowing green eyes, too, it makes him seem so alive. Very nice work!

 

Did you do a WIP for this? If not, would you mind mentioning the colors you used?

 

Huzzah!

lol, yeah, wasn't the trickiest of stories. kind of classic with golems, actually. i'm glad it worked. the green marble attempt was suggested by my wife. she is my go to color guru, so the credit for the more unusual stone goes to her. always fun to try something new and different (new to me, anyhow).

 

edit:

@ oneboot: easy tip for the glowing eyes. most craft stores sell really cheap water based fluorescent paint sets. snag one for a few bucks and add a dab over pure white to make glowing eyes (and other things) that really pop.

no WIP, but i did something very similar to this: http://hot-lead.org/advance/texturing_marble.htm with the usual hilighting and shading.

Looks real nice vulture!

 

Looks like he turned on his sculptor to me.

Which is kind of scary coming from a guy who is presently sculpting a Froghemoth... you've been having frog-themed nightmares vulture? :-)

      Presenting the Sewer Golem (and his fishing buddy Cuttleberry) a monster from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Took a surprisingly long time to paint considering it's all washes and drybrushing, but I had fun, that's the main thing.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 60142 Golden Guardian I painted for the Pathfinder painting contest. This model was sculpted by Tim Prow. It was the perfect miniature to practice my nmm.

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Working my way through the backlog of minis I need to photograph and post. I was very intimidated by this guy at first, but it turned out to be lots of fun to paint.
       
      C&C welcome.
