Recommended Posts

 while she got to practice Karate in Okinawa.  

 

My envy is nearly a palpable force

 

Great work on one of my absolute favourite dragons.

She got the opportunity to study with the current master of her discipline (Isshinryu) and with one of the old school weapons masters while there.  Aaaand they stayed at a traditional Japanese hotel while there, visited castles and got to eat the exotic Okinawan cuisine  (Spam and bitter melon with mixed vegetables, I'm told its an acquired taste...)

my envy grows.  I've been a student of goju ryu for seven (or is it 8?) years and would dearly love to get a chance to train in Okinawa, and get a clear picture of how much has changed in the art here in North America from it's roots. But I'm not Ub3r so i won't jack your thread any more. T-Rak deserves more and better than that.

Base is coming, I just havent decided on cavern or wilderness and what scale I want to work in.  I am considering using some 10mm fantasy warriors riding panthers and scaling the base that way.  He is just such a massive piece, 28mm just doesn't do him justice

 

And Shadowraven, my wife is returning today, if you would like to know more or would like some pictures, feel free to PM me.  Thanks for not hijacking the thread. :)

This is very nice work - doubly so for getting it done so fast!

By request I added a little bit of scenery to point out the biggness of T'Raukzul...

The images are a little cartoonish but I am still working on taking pics of diaramas that large

 

 

Enjoy

For my part, the big experiment here is the trees.  they are "supertrees".  They are the flowering portions of a weird bush that grows in Asia.  Perfect little trees for dioramas.  Although from my experience with these, I probably need to look for a little more types of flock to make my trees match my season.  Suggestions and comments from anyone else who has played with these before would be great.

      My wife, @Shinma, started to paint the Clockwork Dragon several years ago. 
      It got to a point where the body was nearly done, and the wings and base remained.
       
      We had prepared a big gear salvaged from a monitor stand, sanded down by a friend.
       
      Then, inspiration and drive was lost and it sat on the shelf, staring at her, unfinished.
       
      Recently she allowed me to finish it. I did the wings, small part of the body, along with the base.
      Here's our result!

      Spent just about a week on this one. It was fun. My GS work sucks but it's done. C&C welcome.

      I mostly modelled this off Michael Proctor's paint job, and used it as an exercise in learning to push contrast and glaze unlike colours. The photos make the colours seem to little more vibrant than they are in real life. Overall very pleased with the result!

      I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out.  To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.   
      Here's the plate
       
       
      In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:

       
      I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.
