Tropical Wyvern

Recommended Posts

I very much enjoy the paint color scheme overall and the blending you produced on the wings to transition the colors!

 

I'd like to recommend some fine shading and highlighting to bring down areas that would receive less light, and bring up areas that would receive a lot more to give the piece that little extra umpf!

Wow Siri, you are really really improving with every figure. This is fantastic! Love the color scheme, the blending, the basing, and the water effects. It really is pulled off very nicely.

hmm, yea I'll see about giving him some shadows and highlights. Gonna have to think on it carefully, so many colors on him, each will need its own shadow shade lol!

I disagree! Especially the yellow dominating your choice of colors for that wyvern! A watered down glaze of medium to medium-dark tone of purple would give you a nice shade for your shadows and as a complimentary shade to yellow, would actually enhance the appearance of the rest of the figure.

 

For the highlights, it's mostly just over the highest green areas. A highlight using a muted yellow, or bright yellow glaze on the highest aspects would give you that extra pop.

I will give it a shot, though I am afraid if ruining him irreparably lol

A lot of great painters and friends of mine here on the Reaper forums encouraged me to push myself and continue to do so...it's my job to push you as your friend.

It's stunning, Siri. What a little beauty! It looks like one of those Amazonian parrots.

May I suggest trying Adrift's suggestion on a small area first... one that isn't as easily seen?

 

Yea, I was thinking of giving some shading in a small area and see how it comes out before doing the whole thing =)

Thanks!! I was definitely inspired by the colorful birds of the rainforest, especially conures

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is my vignette featuring the Blacksting Wyvern hunting down a 500MD helicopter.

       
      This is a little project I had fun with recently.
      i painted the Blacksting Wyvern from Bones a bit more than a year back and was quite happy with it collecting dust on my shelf (original post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86236-blacksting-wyvern-speed-paint).
      Then, I stumbled across a 1/48 helicopter model I had almost forgotten about. 1/48th scale does fit nicely with 28mm heroic scale.

       
      The creatives juice started flowing and I decided to make a surprise encounter between the modern warfare machine and the legendary beast.

      I experimented as well with epoxy resin + food coloring for water, tree bark (for rocks), a couple of random 3D-printed broken statues/rubbles and toilet paper plaster for the terrain. I didn't have a clear acrylic rod for the flight stand, but wooden dowel painted black blends OK.
      I also forgot how much fun it is to build and paint plastic models. It is both similar and very different from miniatures painting.
       
      I'm quite happy with the result even though I could have been neater on a few places and it is a bit big for my light box.
      C&C appreciated

      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!
