Jabberwocky, The Daughter's Birthday Present

Recommended Posts

Very cute. I think your blending and glazing look good.

Agreed and it the claws in particular look nicely gnarly. Have you thought of addong some type of pupil to the eye? A reptilian type slit might add a little extra pop.

Thank you, Inarah.

Thank you as well, KruleBear.

 

The eyes of the Jabberwocky are "eyes of flame" and aren't usually showing pupils. Thank you for the suggestion though.

Nice job on a somewhat unusual and cute mini. I like how you kept the purple going into the shadows on the green skin. The claws, teeth and strong lining fit the model quite well.

 

As a suggestion, perhaps drybrush some contrast onto the ground?

Thanks, malefactus and Slashhamster.

 

I wanted to keep the base plain but I understand what you mean, Slashhamster.

Yeah, I thought there was a chance that might have been intentional. I almost didn't mention it but figured you could just ignore it anyway!

Warheads: Medieval Tales posted a link and photo of my daughter's birthday Jabberwocky on their Facebook page.

 

Head on over and check it out.

Sing the poem to "Greensleeves" - it works terrifyingly well.

 

That is so going into the repertoire.

 

Thanks guys.

 

And yes, Froggy, you'd be surprised how many poems are written using Greensleeves as the basis for tempo.

I really need to floss my brain now. Thanks for that Lanse. :blink:

 

As for the mini and it's paint job. Wow I wish when I was a kid that someone had painted awesome things like this for me! ::D:

I think your wet blending attempt worked out well.

      Statuesque Miniatures

      Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people!

      You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.

      Space Riders "The Space Goblins!"

      This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified).

      This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers.

      They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here!

      You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group,

      Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/

      The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
       
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!
