77328: Cinder (White)

Recommended Posts

Starting a WIP for my dragon Cinder

 

He's going to be a white dragon =P 

 

I'm basing him on a Secret Weapon base i got, that looks like it'd be a nice snowy scape. Plus, it is much more stable than the base Cynder came with (which I cut up and made into rocks on my Blightfang's base)

White Dragon... Success! Move him over to show off! Lol, Sorry, couldn't resist Siri.

 

Good luck. Are you thinking blue-y white, or gray-y white?

 

What are the brick-like things in the base? Is it going to be a smashed igloo?

the brick things are broken rune stones =)

 

Ha! good one =P but he'll be a blue-white

I'm definitely going to follow this, only to spur on my jealousy that some people already have their bones 2...

 

I think Cinder was one of the models that somehow managed to help me convince my wife to back Bones 2 before i found employment after college.

 

Cinder and Khanjira those two...

I'm both excited about and dreading this thread. I have cinder enroute to me...so I will have a very high standard to compare mine too.

 

XD I'm glad you're confident, 'cause I'm not...I've never tried painting a white dragon before

 

normally i can't stand things to remain one solid color, so I'm probably going to be tempted to put in some variation into his scales, and it could go so badly....

Try finding a picture of a polar bear, arctic fox and arctic hare for inspiration. They seem a uniform white...but they aren't. Between guard hairs, subtle colour shifts and dirt they have 3-4 shades of differing intensity. For example, most hares are brown mixed with the white, foxes grey and brown with the white and all of them get a yellow cast from dirt (and maybe other stuff too) on their bellies and legs.

Definitely good to use images for basis...though the effect i'm going for is more along the lines of mother of pearl where it gets that pearly, iridescent sheen to it >.O we'll see if i can do it haha

I was just thinking that would be a fun white dragon to paint! For this purpose I love Vallejo's metal medium, but Reaper's Pearl White is pretty good too. I'm looking forward to seeing this progress. ^_^

i do have Pearl White and i plan to use it quite a bit

 

I'm going to be working in a small area at first, to figure out what i want to do before tackling the entire dragon XD

      So my wife finished painting a second dragon.
      She is really starting to enjoy painting the miniatures and is looking forward to the Bones 4 next year.
      Trying to decide what miniatures to hold her over till next year.
      I've only got a handful left, Diabolus the Devil Dragon(which I plan to paint) and about 5 other miniatures

      Something I haven't done on the forum before is actually do a WIP that shows me working through the stages on a model.  So, to hopefully get my advice and motivation, I will document my progress on Cinder.
       
      As I am normally focused mostly on table-top quality, and rushing through things, this will be a big change for me.
       
      Any advice or criticism appreciated.
       
      Today I have the first layers done.  I am going more for a black and purple dragon (think Disney's Sleeping Beauty).  The scales will be highlighted with dark purples to still read black but be unified, while the belly and wing membranes will be purple.  The first base coat of black/purple has been laid down but my poor photography and really subtle transition are lost in the photos.

      Speedpainting these two to try and get them done and given to the friend they belong to before we move.

      A few days ago, I got to clean up and glue up my copy of Cinder. Very few mold lines that were easily taken care of with my Exacto knife (side note: I have been very happy with the quality of Bones 2 minis so far). I used a little Tamiya Putty White to fill the gaps, and since then, I have based him with a dark blue grey. Plan is to go with a fairly classic Blue scheme for the colors.
