Not a great WIP as I have done a lot already but here's the mostly done shots and an explanation of what I did.

 

Bronze ... Vallejo Bronze Metallic ... nearly everything has it mixed.

 

I'll elaborate after some pics:

Okay, back to bronze.  Well, I wanted to create the metallic style chitin you would see on some insects.  So I started with bronze down the back.

 

Then I wanted to incorporate more colors but I wanted the bronze in there so I mixed garnet red and bronze, leaf green and bronze and midnight blue and bronze to achieve the colors you see above ... on the ankheg.

 

The stones are flagstones and are gray plus gray mixed with midnight blue and gray mixed with rattlesnake leather.

 

I think he's pretty solid at the moment.  I will be adding more gradients with some washes as I head to show off.  More WIP picks to come ... or not.

 

Enjoy and as always CC is welcome.

I cut out some flagstones from a separate quick stamp in the same Sculpey as the base.  Happy Seppuku's flagstone stamp from their kickstarter.

Glued them in place.  Now just have to paint them and cleanup.

You ruin more cobblestones this way.

      For my ReaperCon entry this year, I painted my Iron Cobra and a chest that I sculpted for one of the Bones KS's.  I'm not entirely happy with these pictures, as the blue seems to be diminished in them (the background and steel colors are actually light blue; maybe it is my monitor?).  I may adjust them later and re-post, but for now, they're pretty close (as close as I can get when photographing metallic paint).
       

       

       

       

       
       
      Oh, and I placed a Gold Medal with this in the Open Category.

      I did the dragon for Dragons Don't Share as a metallic test for my Ma'al Drakar I just posted pics of. Overall I am happy with him, and am glad I covered the body Aged Pewter with Adamantium Black.

      Another monster for my Lost World Project
       
      Project here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/
       
      This is a 15mm miniature from Demonworld, since it is really huge I use it for my 28mm project.
      That is a Microart Studio resin jungle base 3 x 2 inch!
       
      I tried to emulate the metallic sheen that some beetles have on this scorpion.
      Using different metallics and then some inks and black glazing.
       
      Enjoy.
      Likes and comments welcome,if you want to throw rotten tomatoes, report to the scorpion first for a "talk"

      I started painting Narthrax the other day, and I've worked on him a little more today... So the bulk is done, I'm mostly at details and basing and stuff atm. However, to try and make sure I stick with this, I've decided to pop up a WIP thread.
       
      So this is where I'm at =]
       

       
      Yep, I'm still painting on a tray, on a teatowel, on my couch =P

      I wanted to have an Illithid for gaming and got me D'Khul.
      To create a "fishy" look on his skin, I painted it in pale violet metallics, shaded blueish and highlighted towards silver, then applied matt varnish.
      I was quite happy with the result and got a bit carried away when also doing the staff in metallics and the hood and hem with violet-green iridescent pigments. The photo is not so brilliant, one will have to imagine it shimmering under different light directions.
      What do you think of the basic idea? Should illithids look like that or should they rather come with a dark-and-simple scheme?
