77043: Eye Beast

Recommended Posts

Here's my take on the eyebeast. Did most of it tonight so I could enter it over on caffeineforge.com, anything to help me paint more :P

The original plan was making it a whole lot more pink, think Krang. Buuuut.. It's Bones, it's quick, it's done. Happy with the coloration on the central eye though.

EDIT:

Does this board have a limit on image resolution or something, because it resized it :>

Testing:

Plus I tried my "light box" for the first time, so any critiques on that part of it is welcome.

It's just an unmodded slightly see-through fabric box from Ikea. With LED flashlights.

Thanks for the comments, I think the light box thing worked out pretty well myself, and it's collapsible(is that even a word?). Space in geek HQ is limited :P

Here's the box I used: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40210534/#/00186395

 

I plan to try removing the sides on at least one of them to see if adding just a thin layer of fabric makes it even better. For now I'm pretty happy with how much better photos turn out though.

Oh, that looks really simple with the box, collabsible and all! I've been thinking about constructing some kind of light box, because my pictures always look pretty crappy, but swinging by IKEA might be the thing for me.

 

If you have time at some point, I'd love to see a photo of how you set it up with the lighting and nice internal grey-blue background etc (I'm not that knowledgeable in how these things should work). You said you used flashlights?

Sure, here's a picture of it.

As you can tell the flashlights don't penetrate that well, so cutting out the sides and affixing e.g some pieces of an old t-shirt would probably make it a bit brighter. Alternatively replacing the flashlights with decent lamps, but that's something that would take space and time I don't have :P

 

Still the fabric of the box does sort of work as a disperser/reflector, like a white t-shirt piece would, but not as well. The background is just one of the first hits that came up when I googled "gray gradient", or something like that.

      For your consideration I present Sir Vigintor, d20.  This particular highroller was painted pink for a pink challenge issued by a Twitch streamer that I follow. In addition to the model being painted every entrant was required to also provide the backstory and here is mine.
       
      Sir Vigintor began his life as Vinny in the city of Baldur’s Gate as the son of a local bartender. His father had a bad gambling problem and was in debt to the Chance Thieves Guild and couldn’t provide for Vinny. So the Thieves Guild took the boy in as payment with a promise to care for him and train him so long as the father kept paying them and allowed the Guild to use his bar to store items from time to time. Vinny was never treated as a slave or made to think any less of his father. He was trained as a fighter who eventually served as muscle for the Guild. One day he was sent to collect payment from a business owner that had fallen behind on their debt. He was told to collect gold or their body. When he received his assignment he realized it was his own father he was sent to “collect” and refused. The Guild Master Grix understood the boys plight and offered him a roll of his dice. If the boy won he would be free to leave the Guild and his father would be free of their debt. If he lost the roll he would forfeit his life and his fathers life. Grix allowed the boy to take the first roll and upon grabbing the 20 sided die, Vinny passed out as the world went black. When Vinny woke up he found himself in the dungeon of the Guild and his body had been horrifically transformed into that of a giant Pink 20 sided dice! Grix approached the cell and started to mock Vinny. He explained that no one ever leaves the Guild and his father had been executed and his bar burned to the ground. Vinny felt a rage well up inside him to a level that he had no control over, he tumbled across the cell floor with blinding speed and reached through the bars and grabbed Grix by the neck with such force that his neck snapped. The force of the impact against the cell door had also broken it free of his hinge and Vinny managed to grab a sword and shield and sneak his way out of the Guild and into the night.
       
      Vinny changed his name to Vigintor spent the next few years helping people where he could while adventuring and gained the favor of a the Lords of Waterdeep. He was knighted and given the title of Sir Vigintor and has been a protector of the realm for many years.

      I got a camera to take better pictures of some of the miniatures I've been painting. I hope my GM can use them!

      I'm working on Cassie the Gnome Sorceress (bones version) and she's coming along okay, but... Not quite where I want her. See, this image from the store is what I'm going for.

       
      And this is where I'm at now. 

      There's a bit of a gap between these two... 
       
      Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? 
       
      Please be brutal.

      I wanted to share this since I did not find many of these already painted when looking for reference photos, maybe it can help someone else! 
      I went super bold with this guy, as I tend to do lol! The pictures don't really show how gross those pustules are though lol!  They have a bit of nurgle's rot on them as well. 
       
      The basing was done with mostly natural elements! A real lichen laden stick, seed pods, fern leaves, along with some Army Painter Battlefields Grass Green and  Battlefield Rocks, as well as some basic
      clump foliage for filler! 
      Does anyone like to use natural materials for basing!? 
       
      C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!

      These are the "Vampire Brides" from Bad Squiddo Games, which last summer came out with a line of Hammer-type horror figures called "My Last Sunrise." They are sculpted by Gus Kearns and were introduced with the tag line "Get married, they said. Best day of your life, they said."
