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

      Here's a simple conversion I made some years ago.  I thought I'd posted him before, but apparently not.  Not my best painting, but my favorite PC none the less.

      Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu 
      Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think.
      The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done.
      Hope you like it:



      As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

      Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs.
      So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type?
       
      And this is the outcome:

       
      Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :)

      Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!

      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!
