Magma Elemental

Beauiful! I love it! It freakin' glows! Are you sure you didn't hide some LEDS in there?  :lol:

As for the white highlights on the base... I love them! But in exclusion of the rest of the mini... and I think I see why they bother you. I think the highlights on the base need to be about the same level of intensity as any highlights on the elemental itself. Since they are about the same value/color/material. I think if the intensity of the highlights matched both the base and the model better, it would read better.

 

However, I don't know if I would change a thing on the elemental because he looks so perfect, so I think that means glazing down the intensity of your highlights on your rocks. and maybe shifting the color just a hair so the brain doesn't read the material in the rocks as needing to be as similar to the elemental.

 

But as always, my opinions can be full of crap, so discard and ignore as you see fit.  ::D:

I'm just tired of orange.  If I have to use any more orange anytime soon, I might scream. :rolleyes:

I SEE THE WORDS YOU TYPED AND I UNDERSTAND THEM.

 

This guy looks great, very sneaky hiding your WIP in the WIP thread that's not your WIP thread! Oh, wait you painted him last year :) I might be able to beat your inception to completion span! Probably not.

Thanks everyone! 

Thes- I think you're right!  I couldn't pin down what bothered me about them.  I was thinking of glazing more walnut or purple into them.  I'll fiddle.  If I make it before the 3rd- great!  If not, I'll just take him with me to Reapercon.

You can do it Cash!  Push to the finish.  I swear, my apathy when it comes to orange really killed my motivation on this guy.  I feel your pain!

A non-saturate purple might just be what is needed as a glaze color. The highlights on the elemental himself pull blue/blue-green to counterbalance the red/orange in the lava, which is perfect, and beautiful. But to differenate the rocks, a purple to balance out the yellow might be what is needed. And then it's not the same hue as in the elemental. But I don't know if I would go very purple purple... so a brown/grey/purple might work well.

 

And break a leg at Reapercon! Wish I could be there as well!

purple, or more of the teal would probably help with the highlights on the base. I like the idea of purple, and I think it might help differentiate the base from the boss.

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
       
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
       
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
       
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.

      Finished this a few days ago. One thing I have to say. I've looked at a lot of people's online before doing mine. And not to be rude but I don't like any of theirs. Nobody seemed to try and do a theme to the rocks that location wise made more sense for the fossilized dinosaur on its back. Lots of people made gems and all kinds of other things. You wouldn't find those things around fossil remains. So this was my attempt to have something more surreal and actually include the fossils better and since I collect museum quality fossils apart from painting minis. I've seen enough to try my hand at what it would look like more on an excavation site. :)

      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!

      My elementals.  I'm going to need to redo a few pics for inspiration gallery submission, but good for now. These have only been cropped, unlike most of my pics.
