awesome!  I love the subdued colors, and the blue-red combo really works well!  The only thing I can think of to make the eyes pop more is contrast- I wonder if you could darken the edges around the pupil area to make it look more glowey or add a single pinpoint dark spot in an off-center orientation just to make it look eerie.  I'm not sure.  But they're freaky!!  Great job!

It's funny you mention the eye-dot b/c I heavily considered that as well. I was listening to a documentary about wildlife in Malaysia and it specifically was talking about the eyes of praying mantis' and how they can focus their lenses and form a small black dot that look like a pupil.

Looks really good.  Really like the color choices and your transitions are very nice... 

Thank you sir!

I've a Summer cold so I thought I'd pop in here to see what's shakin'.  And this piece really caught my eye.

 

The cool colours of his head against the warm colours of his body is a brilliant idea. I think your transitions are well done and look like a natural progression on real skin. The colour choices there are inspired.  Also the base is minimal, looks good and doesn't take the focus off the figure. I can't tell which one is BONES and which is metal. There aren't a lot of painters who can pull that off. I couldn't.

 

I'm excited that you're doing pieces for the Sci-Fi challenge and look forward to seeing what you do!

I am gaga over the subtle nuances of color, the balance, and the deft handling of shadow and highlighting.

This really is a symphony of color and balance.

Astonishing work.

I am awestruck just looking at it.

You are Inspirational !

Thank You for this gift !

Thank you! I'm always drawing little bits of inspiration from seeing other people's work, so I'm honored to do the same!

 

Nice job! I love your blending on the wings. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! I really wanted a different color scheme than something purple and green; let's face facts, if it has tentacles and is anything remotely C'Thulian in nature the first instinct is to go purple and green...

Very cool. I've been looking at this model every time I stop into the shop but in my head I've always seen it as the 'monster green' colors. This has helped me visualize what I could do with this one. Gonna have to buy it next time. Now I'm thinking sickly blue and necro-green.

      "Great Gods!  I'd rather be
      A cultist suckled in a creed outworn
      Could I but see Cthulhu rising from the sea
      or hear old Dagon blow his wreathed horn."

      (With apologies to William Wordsworth)

      A desolate piece of grey coast on a very particular day in November.

       
      The hour is right. The signs are right. The stars are right. 
      A pulse of sickly green light, far out to sea. 
      An hour passes, then two. It takes even one of the High Priest's blood a while to ascend from the crushing black depths.


      Then, a boiling. A bubbling and a heaving of the waters. With a great splash, vast flabby webbed wings break the surface, followed by a most awful head. 


      Brine cascades off its greasy hide in waterfalls as more and yet more of its colossal bulk emerges.


      So, now. The summons worked. But did the binding?
      Foam churns around its loathsome feet as it strides up to the shore. 


      (Cultist is played by 59039, Deadlands Noir Occult Detective.)

      The Nolzur's Star Spawn is one heck of a chunk of model! Very good detail; good placement of clear water and primed plastic. Some places were NOT EASY TO REACH, but it turns out those wings pop right out of their sockets if you bend and wiggle them a bit. Found that out by accident. They pop back in pretty easily, too, so that helps a lot. 

      Water is mostly GW blue and green contrasts mixed together. Takes a lot of time brushing back and forth before it adheres properly to the translucent plastic. A drybrushing with ivory white gets the foam caps. 
      Skin is mostly a base coat of AP Disgusting Slime graded with darker greens. Irregular rings of Reaper Ancient Oak and Reaper (sample internal-organ pink) provide some contrast; there's a lot of canvas and it needs variety. 

      Decided to make my other Reaper spawns match the scheme. Eldritch demon, 77113, and Darkspawn Minion, 03438b. 
       
      Alternate summoning:



      And an as-yet-unpainted Great Cthulhu piggy bank that is about the right scale for the O.G. G. O. O. 
      Towering over the horizon, blotting out the sun--classic Cthulhu stuff.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.
