Osugambit paints Cthulhu (very slowly)

Recommended Posts

Ok. So I'm going to start another WIP thread/painting diary. This time I'm going to start work on Cthulhu from the first Bones campaign. I will likely have things come up that I may have to stop and start but I will come back here when work resumes.

 

I still haven't finished the eyes from my bush (doh).

 

Today I started trying to get some of the basecoating done. As I started I realized that I had done a poor job with a couple mold lines and filling the gap between body and tail. So a lot of the work today was done trying to smooth this out without taking out the scalpel. And for that I used some of both liquid green stuff and reaper brush on sealant. It has helped a lot but I may still have to go over once or twice more.

 

So here is a very early and raw WIP. Not even done basecoating.

 

Also Cthulhu is so big I can't take a full pic in the photo box I have here so most Of the pics will likely be close ups of different areas this time.

 

Thanks for looking and comments and criticisms are always welcome!

One step forward, two steps back...

 

So I was working on the wings and was really liking the progress.  At first my plan for the big guy was just kind high tabletop standard.  but I was getting so much done today and having a good time doing it so I decided I might end up pushing it as far as I can and try to make a display piece eventually.  However, I didn't put a ton of time into prepping him, and therefore there were several pretty bad mold lines left from prep.  So I decided to go ahead and clean those up.  so here is a little work on the wings, and several steps back removing the mold lines.  

 

Edit - crap forgot to rotate the pics,  fixed now

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!

      This past week I painted the Djinni figure from the Fan Favorites set.     When I first saw this figure in the Kickstarter, being a child of the 60's and 70's, the first image that flashed in my mind was Jeannie from the classic  I Dream of Jeannie TV show.   I knew that this was the color scheme I wanted to use on my Djinni figure. :)  
       
      I made a couple changes to the figure.  First, I separated the lamp portion of the integral base so I could mount it on a different base; and Second, I mounted the sword the correct way as it is shown in the concept art, not upside down and left-handed as the figure comes.

      This is the biggest "miniature" I've ever painted.  I would not have even looked at it if someone hadn't asked me to paint it. It was a great challenge and a great learning experience.  I love his slightly goofy "intoxicated" facial expression.
