Create special lighting effects like this is tricky and in the end you will stare at it too much and hate it.

 

I love what you did and I totally dig the light effect! The only problem is your other water minis will need this effect as well for visual cohesion.

Nice! I really love how it looks like you are looking down at the monster from the surface of the water.

Great job. reminds me of an old book on prehistoric life I had where all the marine reptiles were depicted with that light ripple effect. That means you pulled it off!

Not to sound like a parrot but, that dappling sunlight effect came out quite good. Definitely something you should keep experimenting with.

I love the sun-speckling effect. It looks very realistic, and makes it feel like it's really underwater. Great idea and execution!

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
       
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?
       

       

       
      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.

      He's about a year old now, but hey, I have to start with something here! Happily accepting critique (especially on photographing the finished work!)

      Happy Painting, y'all!

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
