Gourls Paints 77315: Fire Demon

Recommended Posts

Finished the balor fire demon that my roommate got from his Bones II fulfillment that I started forever ago tonight. There are some things I could do to make him better, but honestly I'm kind of sick of looking at him and painting over him. I've never painted anything this size before. I learned quite a bit. Like that I should probably paint before assembling (which fills me with dread because I already assembled the minotaur demon and I want to paint him too). Anyway, I haven't seen many of this guy painted yet. He's a fun sculpt I think. I was going for sort of lightning runes on his sword, but I don't yet know/have the brush control/have a small enough brush to be able to pull that off. So. Blue it is for now.

Love what you have done.

I would recommend that you start adding in your shadows, dark tones before you move on to adding your major colors.

Translation:  base your mini colors, then do a black and white photo of it, then start making lights and darks .

if you added green (the compliment to red) into your recesses, you would have gotten higher contrast,

and that makes your mini come to life.

(Just wanting to see you make it magnificent )..

I see! Thank you for the advice. I never thought about trying to do a black and white photo of the mini after I'd based it all. I'll try that with a smaller mini and see how that makes it pop more.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
       
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!

      This Bones figure was the demonstration model in my 2-hour "Good Fast Painting" class at ReaperCon 2017.  I got her about 2/3 done in the class.
      She stood half-painted on my shelf for a year and a half. 
      This past Sunday, I just needed to paint something, and this was it.  An hour later, I was ready to call her done. 
      As always, I spent a lot more time per square millimeter on the face & eyes.
      Enjoy!

      Got to get a brighter light, but here are my bugbears.

      Here is the Wyvern from the Bones 4 Core set. I really like the built-in scenic base - another nice sculpt from the set.

      Hey all, been a while.
       
      Quick job from Bones 4. Added a saddle, threw on a Mantic Soul Reaver cavalry rider with a head swap from Puppetswar.
