I received this amazing mini from a friend as a birthday gift, so I was extra motivated to give it a lot of work. That's the Patrick Keith version, bigger than Chaz Elliot's one: a great wingspan, somber looking.
I've seen several paint jobs here to get some inspiration. Many people decided to go full with the spectral theme; blue lights, blue eyes. IMO, although it looked great, the overall impression wasn't enough that of an angel of the depths made with driftwood, but something newer and too colorful for what I was thinking.
So instead I went with a very dry palette: just black, brown, grey and rusty metals. I wanted to convey it as if its driftwood dried for days in the sun of some beach, just to be driven back to the seas, and to the beach again, on a neverending cycle. Worn wood, sundried, rotten, thorn; old wood, tired, greyish thanks to the salt and the wind.
I couldn't capture it on the photos but the only spark of color is on its eyes: a ghoulish green reminiscent of its spectral nature. Overall it actually looks pretty basic, simpler than these other works you can find on google, but... I'm happy with the outcome.
BTW lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla
Finished Cthulhu on Saturday, I think I'm learning to overcome my fear of highlighting too far, I still didn't go as light as people said I should. Some say you can go practically to white, but I am very hesitant to try that. I think I've made progress though. C&C welcome!
Harsh Lighting, to show detail----
And WIP thread if anyone is interested...
I'm covering this in my Lost World Project also.
However since this is basically a Terrain Piece/Diorama thingie, I decided to make a separate WIP as well.
So those who are only interested in terrain and such will also see it.
It all started when @knarthex his daughter Alsnia posted a pic of her Pet Snake.
Then @Pezler the Polychromatic made up a background story See my WIP page 65
@malefactushas always inspired me with his great terrain and he also encouraged me...
And I have also read the great threads of @Chris Palmer who made fantastic jungle statues.
So I knew I had to do this.
I bought a Toy Anaconda and a Toy Python.
The Anaconda will become Tanith.
The Serpent Goddess will be repainted in albino colours like Alsnia's pet, but it will also be part stone.
She is in stasis in a statue and now Alsnia the Priestess ( Bones Sarah the Seer) has been chanting and summoning until Tanith sheds her stone skin and breaks out of the statue.
The Python will be a gold or bronze statuette on the back of the wall.
I'm planning to put torches and sacrifices/gifts on the altar.
There will be two pipes coming from the backwall and snakes will pour from those and will be crawling all over the altar.
Here is what I've done so far.
Then I needed to carve out the shape of the Python to embedd it into the back wall later.
Too much gap will be filled with putty.
There will also be much stuff likes vines and leaves all over it.
So this may take a while.
Another Snake Warrior for my Lost World.
This is Reaper Warlord 14187 Ssathuss.
A Nagendra Warrior.
