60028: Pathfinder Red Dragon

Recommended Posts

Nice, I like the lightning veins on the wings and that you went with a less vivid blue than seems so common nowadays. Could we get a pic with a closer look at the cactus on the base? And what is the acual base itself? Also, a front pic please?

 

And while I'm asking for so much, could I get a cookie? ::):

I like that blue as well. I did go to your WIP and look at the pics from the front and I like what I see. It is a good idea to post links to your WIP, however some people won't click on them. On Show-off it would be best to include all pics of the finished product. Then we can go back and see your steps and learn from them.

Sorry for the late replies.  Too much going on.  Anyway I'll try to take a zoomed pic for the cactuses (cacti, whatever these days) but it's not too spectacular.  I rolled the GS into a small and smaller Tootsie roll shape in my hand, then indented the tops with the end of a brush with a wide round "stirring" end, and just painted with the Forest Green trio.  The force of pushing down while wet made them bloat out and look more rounded like they should, but I gave myself license because this is fantasy after all.  I used something not too yellow like Buckskin Pale (didn't write it down :( for little spots and very delicate "streaks" to simulate thorns.  Overall they're pretty cheesy but it works.

 

The base is from a glass jar candle that happened to use metal instead of glass for the topper.  I figured it'd come in handy someday.  My hoarder instincts were spot on!  Heh.

 

And you can have 2 cookies.  I'm all about handing out the cookies!  Thanks for the nice comments too.

You're right.  It does make things easier if I link more.  I figured like some forums, my main post would bump to the top when adding new photos.  Doesn't work like that here, and probably just as well for everyone's sake.  Heh.  I'll just make single posts since my time between projects will be lengthy most likely.  I have too many hobbies as it is.   ::):

 

I did try to go for a darker blue using the Sparkling Blue because I always picture my blue dragons to be a cousin to black dragons.  I almost ruined the thing after taking these pics too.  I went out to coat it with a new gloss, which I always overcoat with matte until you can't tell, but it started drying milky and of course I started flipping out, running for a toothbrush and hoping it'd come off.  I didn't trust it to dry clear.  It left a slight haze on it, but I did save it.  I think I'm just going to spray more matte from now on...   :lol:

Very nice. Great color choice of blue. Really like the way you did the wings.

 Thanks for the kind words all.   ::):   If I don't always reply it's because I'm chasing down my 3 year old.  heh

      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.
