Awesome textures on the earth/stone! I love the "dirt" look you achieved; my stones usually wind up looking too clean. The crystals are very eye-catching, too.

 

I picked up this figure post-KS, and I think I'm going to have to move him up in my painting queue. It'll be fun to have a showdown between the large earth and fire elementals...

Wow, one of the best painted up versions I've seen of this figure. Very very well done, I agree w/ MM about how great the dirty look is. You should enter it up on the inspiration gallery.

Thanks! Like I said I tried to do him quick so there's both stippling and drybrushing on there with siennas and umbers. Honestly rock for me is completely hit or miss, I just dab stuff on until it looks ok.

Later on I realized some of his stones actually have differing textures and tried to pick them out (rather sloppily I might add) to give him some contrast. The crystals were first planned to be subdued and amethyst-like, but after seeing the rest of him I thought he needed something eye catching so I went with the WoW-style blue stuff :P

Wow, thank you. I kinda feel like I have to base him before I can submit him there though, but I'll be sure to do so once it's done :D

I was so caught up in how good the figure looked I didn't even notice he wasn't based yet! Definitely put him up there when you are totally done, really great work.

You guys are always too nice! Now I feel like I have to base him asap.

 

So... Since I have only one 80mm, one that I'd like to keep around, I broke out the Magic Sculpt and made another one!

Will be set by tomorrow evening I figure, so he might be based sooner than I thought. Thanks again for the encouragement ^_^

Nah, it's all on you. You did a wonderful job and we are just telling you how great it is. Glad you have decided to base him and put him up to inspire others in the gallery.

      This was a very fun group to paint.  They also went very fast.  I finished them in January, but just got around to photographing them.
      I can't pick a favorite, they all have so much personality.  I tried some OSL on the fire elemental's base.
      The camera settings were changed on the solo shots of the air elemental to tone down the white from overpowering.
      It ended up kind of dark.
      Enjoy.

      So...
      in an effort to like....actually not have 300 minis to paint by the time Bones 4 AND the critical role minis all hit me next year, I’ve decided to paint three a week, and always have a bigger work in progress going. This week I picked some low hanging fruit so I actually did more than that. 
       
      The ice troll was my bigger monster this week. 
       
      Air elemental i wanted to look like it was sorta tearing up the earth beneath ala a tornado....
       
      enjoy! C&C welcome!

      This guy has been awaiting proper completion for about a year.  Every time I had grey paint left over, I added it to him.  I found him a struggle to complete because of his size and because of all the mold lines.  Every time I turned him around I found more that I missed when prepping him.  I finally gave up on trimming them and just gave him a proper base and a finished paint job.  It's still a speed paint, but at least he's done and ready for use in my D&D game. 
       
      Only 30 projects left on my shelf of shame!

      Hi Guys,
       
      Just a quick update from my Do-To List.  Pretty straight foward, light base coat, heavy wash, dry brush highlights.  Let me know what you think :)

      I really like these elementals' pose and sculpting. So much more imposing and dynamic compared to most other elementals I have seen.
       



      Picking flowers...
       
      There are many more pictures at my blog
       
      Water Elemental was done as follows: first, an undercoat of clear matte varnish. This is key! I used Army Painter Anti Shine spray. Then some vallejo blue ink and when dry several light drybrushings with progressively lighter shades of pale blue up to almost pure white. Then some ancient citadel turquoise glaze here and there, all topped off with gloss varnish. I did some color shade variations all over this one, but I think maybe the gloss varnish fuffs it up so this can't really be seen in the pictures.
      Fire Elemental was done as follows: First the undercoat of clear matte varnish. Then several abortive attempts with yellow ink which did just not work until I abandoned that idea and undercoated it with three coats of opaque white. 
      After that successive layers of heavy to light drybrush with bright yello - golden yellow -dark pink - dark red brown and finally black.
      It is important to let the colours dry a bit between coats to avoid tearing off the layer below when drybrushing. Finish with dotting in some blues for the eyes.
      When painting fire like this, it looks pretty terrible up to the dark red brown layer. Suddenly, it looks pretty sweet indeed.
       
      Earth Elemental was done as follows: black undercoart, then heavy drybrushed coat of dark green gray, followed by lighter coats of  yellow sand and light grey white.
      A stone combo that I think works so much better than just shades of grey, grey and grey.  
      I probably should have varied it more with different types and colours of rock represented. but I just could not be bothered as I just wanted it done at this point.
      I need my Bones 3 shipment to complete the set! When O when will it arrive? Wherefore art thou mine Large Air Elemental?
