77058: Almaran the Gold

Recommended Posts

I like it, you might want to drop a little black wash onto the gold to give it depth

I'd say a brown wash, but yes it needs some shadowing to be complete.

 

Very nice job on him overall though!!

Really like your approach to cool whites...

The shield, the wings, and the sword got a brown wash, but it does appear that I forgot to do the trim somewhere along the way.  ^_^   Hitting it again would help, but today is for football! 

 

Thanks for looking.

mmmh i'm trying to figure out what doesn't convince me....

 

i guess the rivets!

 

white on the shield is really well done

 

i think you should place a bit of your azure wash around the rivets and overall more in the crevices of the armour.

 

 

as i said the shield is reaaally good it's perceived as white but has depth

Cool take on this one ( Pun intended). That gold is the ideal place for a brown ink wash. Most pure inks are too shiny to shade matte surfaces alone but on metallic gold it is a match made in heaven.

I'll admit, I didn't put the effort in to go back and add a shadow to each individual rivet.  The armor plates have the same lining as the wings on the shield, it's just a bit washed out by the lighting on the side views.  Unless you would like the lining darker than that overall?

I like this guy.  the front of the shield is the best part for me.  I like the depth of shading on that part.  And i agree about the rivets needing to be highlighted better.  It would totally bring this guy to life.  My only other comment is that i would make the back of the shield a dark brown to separate it visually from his left arm.

well if you say that the armor recesses are of the same tone as those in the shield maybe it's just a lighting problem of picture itself!^^

 

 

if it appears as the shield everywhere then it's good to go!^^

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.

      It's a cougar!  Specifically it's a firepelt cougar, from the world of Golarion (Pathfinder RPG).
      It's also my submission for the Reaper Challenge League under the January theme of "Ice or Fire".
      Pathfinder authors have described firepelts as having black-and-red or "autumnal" coloration, but I know of only one image in a Paizo book: the 5th anniversary book of Rise of the Runelords shows one as mostly black with thin orange stripes running down its back and orange rings on its tail.  I used that as a point of departure, plus extra reference in the form of photos of cougars, and photos of rare recessive-gene "king cheetahs" that have stripes and large blotchy spots instead of the usual small round spots.
      I cut away parts of this guy's integral base, and sculpted a grouping of rocks that the cougar is descending.
       

       

       

       
      Enjoy!
