I'm glad you did this, the whole 'red+green=xmas' thing bugs me. It doesn't unless the beholder makes it so. I don't see it until someone mentions it, which makes me annoyed with the person who does so :)


Great work as usual, nice lil snake in there.

I click on a new show off.  Look at the pictures going Oh wow, reaching the bottom; thinking that these have to be Corporea, scroll back up. Yup, Corporea...

The exact same thought process went through my head.  "Ooh! Pretty dragon. Heh, looks almost like Corporea's base work.  Who did this? <scrolls up> Oh! Corporeal!"


I pegged it as yours when I saw the little snake on the base.  Until then It was just an impressive dragon, then it became Corporea's impressive dragon.


I'm not sure I could tell you why the little snake dude and base style made me think of you, though.

Love it! And I don't think you over-rely on basing...you just do a really great job of creating entire 360-degree worlds for your minis!


I love the snake.


I have one nit to pick...there's a pretty hard corner of cork just below the snake...I'd take a pair of pliers or tweezers (the cork Andy brought to Rcon is crumbly enough for tweezers) and rough up the flat edges a bit, pull chunks of cork out so it looks a little less finished.


The red and green works really nicely, especially with the yellows in there. *takes notes for the big green sitting in the queue*

Really great looking dragon! I love the highlights and shading. You've brought a lot of contrast to the piece.


I have to echo Sanael on the base, though. The basing looks like sheets of cork stacked on a base. I wish you had roughed them up more, or puttied over the sides, or even painted them like shale to justify the uniform layering.

      It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that.  So it's time to get spooky instead!
      Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front.

      I love doing WIPs. And I've got a lot projects I should finish 😊. And since there is still no progress with Barros and Tempest (this time because I'm still waiting for a new base to be shipped), why not start something new?
      I've yet to paint my first dragon, so I'll use this opportunity to do it. I confess, I'm cheating a bit here, since I'm going to paint the white dragon by Dark Sword Minis - that's a very small dragon. But still, he's got wings and teeth and claws and scales, so definitely a dragon, yessir!
      I absolutely love this mini. I bought it many years ago, but the horns went missing. Fortunately, when I ordered some more minis from Dark Sword a while ago, I was able to order some spare horns, so now I'm good to go.
      Here he is, assembled and prepped:

      Now I have to decide on a paint scheme, which I can't bring myself to do. There are three ideas I have at the moment:
      paint him up as an ice dragon. I'm thinking white with pinkish/greenish undertones and a base made with transparent crackle paint. There was a very cool version of an Ice Dragon a while ago on this forum, but I can't seem to find it any more.  paint him up as a star dragon using the technique I learned at RVE in Kevin Holderny's class. I used it on a coat so far, maybe it looks very cool on the dragon's wings. paint him up as a real world snake. Now there are so many possibilities...  
      Decisions, decisions...

      Some more work on the base.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮
