77156: Owlbear - Secret Sophie Present


Recommended Posts

Bones Owlbear Secret Sophie Present for Kay13

 

Special thanks to those who mentioned using straight pins to adjust drooping Bones minis, including MiniCannuck.

 

I shoved a pin up the Owlbear's single leg touching the ground to get it to stand upright.

 

Here are the photos:

And here's a closeup of the base:

*an owlbear - very cool - I don't know how you did the base, but wow. I love him.

 

First I cut off the front of the integral base and trimmed it to better sit in the round base. Then I smooshed some of the MagicSculpt that came with my Happy Seppuku stamps. Once I had that level with the remaining integral base of the owlbear, I removed the owlbear from the piece and stamped the base with the Happy Seppuku Bones stamp. I got the partial skeleton in there.

 

Then when the putty was cured I replaced the owlbear to the round base and covered the edges of the integral base with greenstuff and hid the edges with manual texturing using a toothpick mostly.

 

Once that was cured and I had finished the owlbear I painted the base as you see above as a kind of swampy, moss covered mess.

 

I'm glad Kay13 liked it and can't wait to do another Secret Sophie.

 

Give it a thumbs up on the Inspiration Gallery.

      Here's a fun and simple one for you this week!

      Owlbears are one of my favorite D&D creatures.  They're just such a silly concept and I love them.  Any scenario were I could use a bear, I swap out for one of these guys instead.  However, despite owning several different owlbear models, I have avoided painting them for a long time out of fear of ruining them.  Finally decided to give one a shot.

      What kind of Owls should I use as inspiration next?
       
      What mini did you put off painting for too long?

      Better late than never.

      Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

      With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

      These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
       
      What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      The battle against the forces of evil takes place on many levels. Sometimes it's a clash of mighty armies, whilst other times terrifying behemoths clash in the sky, terrifying the populace for miles around. Others.....well, they're far more personal.
       
      This was my contribution to this years Secret Sophie gift exchange. It portrays the winner of a long, hard won battle between evenly matched opponents and I suspect the only thing keeping that little dragon up is pride and a good dose of adrenaline
       

       

       


       
       
      This was a number of firsts for me- my first semi successful NMM attempt, first ever diorama and first Secret Sophie. I had a great time and I'll certainly do it again!
       
      Thanks for looking, as always any comments/criticisms are certainly welcome.

      My secret Sophie is winging its way to its recipient as I write this and may even arrive before the new year!
       
      I have been practicing a technique shown to me by @Mocha and have produced. Number of these this year so its only fitting that my SS be one of them.
       
      The present is actually a 6 sided die from dice jail for too many 1's so for its trouble it has been incarcerated in greenstuff wrapping paper! 
       
      I modified Rocky a little bit to flatten his wings to more of a waiting position. 
       
      As for the story, Rocky has been asked to wait for his present and he intends to make sure it does not get away!  
       
      I enjoyed making the little bow much more than I should have but it was a lot of fun.  The Rocky series is great.  The eyes are just large enough to get some real detail into without overwhelming the mini and ever part of the mini is accessible to paint!  
       
      I hope his recipient likes him and that he reminds everyone that good things will come with a little bit of patience
