My own accidental Froggy moment (Kraken --> Carnivorous Plant)

Recommended Posts

A SERENDIPITOUS EVENT! That is a potentially SPLENDID Floral Fiend....& a rare excuse to use "serendipitous" in a sentence. I would imagine it is also more useful as a Giant Carnivorous Plant than it would be as a Kraken...if nothing else it would stop Folks mistaking the candle holder for an ashtray. GREAT IDEA, Pingo!

"Froggy Moment" = "serendipitous error moment."

 

Wonder how Froggy will feel about the coinage?

Hey, who said "error"?

 

It's serendipity, when things fall into place in a totally unexpected and wonderful way.

Point taken. And actually, it does kind of look like something I'd want to do in shades of green and then pot it in real soil in the living room to note the reactions of the cats. And the occasional visitor. Perhaps with a small, tasteful sign in small letters saying "Don't get too close."

I've started a WIP thread with my own Kraken:

Actually, review carnivorous plant colors. Many of them have red, pink, orange, and yellow colors in splendid displays.

And you could name your plant "Cleopatra"!

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea.   If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed!
       
      This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year.
       
      My plan is to take this lovely critter:

       
      and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these:

       
      and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such.
       
      So! To that end, I now have one of these!

       
      I'll just be using the top half for the base, though:

       
      Which means that the bottom hemisphere is available for...testing.
       

       
      Huzzah!

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
       
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
       
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.

      This is Reaper's magnificent 50212 "Incredible Woman," sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
       
      She's a great figure that can be painted up like a lot of (tall - she's a big one) women superheroes. Wonder Woman is on my wish list, and maybe Captain Marvel one day.
       
      This version is Marvel's She-Hulk from her classic days as one of the Fantastic Four, replacing Ben Grimm for a time.
       
      As a materials and techniques note, I didn't use any green or blue pigments in her skin. It's all mixed from yellow and black. This was partly to prove a point and is kind of central in the art video I posted on YouTube last week: Yellow and Black Make Green.
       
      Enjoy!
