Bones Hell Hound (77038) by Naponatom


Recommended Posts

Honestly, I think that's the best Hell Hound I've seen so far. I've liked some of the others I've seen, but there was always something off about the flames to me. I think you nailed it. The musculature looks great as well.

 

I also love the base, but I think you need to have more black patches that are not beneath the hell hound, or do more "lava" beneath it - or maybe both. Right now it looks very deliberate - a bit more "randomness" and it will look more organic.

Excellent! I could see more black patches as well. I like this one but I would/might do a variant where from the lava up to say the kneecaps is a gradient from laval to flesh. The paws and ankles being lava schemed, possibly the same on the face. Well I guess I have something to try out now.

Great job on this figure!

 

A piece of advice though is to find a different background that doesn't reflect the light like that. I'd recommend a simple textured cloth of neutral color such as light grey or tan. I bought a few pieces of 11x17 from Hobby Lobby and I think they are like $.50 each or something like that.

I was very afraid to make a freak paint job on this one, I had an idea to make the lava light reflect on the belly of the beast, but when I achieve the color I wanted in the mini, I just couldn´t risk to do anything else on it. But it is a great idea, and I hope to see it on yours.

Good advice, I tried to stay focused on the smooth areas to do the black, but it appears only in beneath of the hound. Next time I will definitely be more attentive to that.

Thanks, I used to do it with a white paper sheet, but always appears some stripes on it (my camera is my phone), so I tried with a magazine´s back cover.

Your cloth idea is great, I will try to find one (other than old t-shirt) in the weekend.

The base is really cool, or hot, or well....I really like it. The color transitions look good between the head, body and legs. And the glow coming from inside the mini makes it really come alive. Great job. I hope mine looks half as good.

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way

      More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.

      My first time painting a chibi figure.  Probably not the last.  Painting this made me feel happy.

      My 3 year old had been exploring my basement paintbstation and fallen in love with the "elephant. " Yesterday I glued and primed it for painting. About 60% got covered in rainbow splotches of  craft paint
      before child abandoned the project to play with recently varnished terrain.

      I smoothed out all the blobs of paint to vaguely cover everything in a greenish/pinkish/brownish grey.

      We may paint more, or else I'll paint some eyes and seal it.
