Pingo

A Kraken who is also a Carnivorous Plant, by Pingo

I approve of a household that would have something like this in a pot somewhere on a windowsill.

Watching your work unfold is endlessly entertaining. The wood is already fun.

*splorp* It's brown.
*dabdabdab* it's brown with green smudged on it.
*slap*

IT'S AN ALGAL BLOOM ON A SHIPWRECK

How?

HOWWWWW?????

(Edit: I think I can see that you're still building up the colour, but the illusion has already kicked in. Very enthusiastic to see it unfold further.)

Blu-Tack? I thought the going trend was to use rare earth magnets to connect pieces...

Great work Pingo!

I agree with GCB, use the magnets. You can find them Amazingly easy on Google. They come in all shapes and sizes.

Been using the things for years now for weapon swaps on 40K figures. Instead of having to buy multiples, 1 fig can do alot.

Agreed, I love watching Pingo's very painterly style unfold.  It's like magic.

There's a step in Pingo's process where the mini near-instantaneously goes from a collection of random splotches of color to a completed mini. This is called "Pingoing a Mini."

 

Either that, or she's just bad at keeping WIPs. :;):

Honestly, depending on the age of the wreck, the ropes would either be bleached out from the salt water, gone altogether, or somewhere in-between

Pingo, How are you liking those Golden Fluid Acrylics? I keep eyeing them in the art stores, but haven't pulled the trigger and bought them yet. Their coverage looks so-so to me.

Pingo, How are you liking those Golden Fluid Acrylics? I keep eyeing them in the art stores, but haven't pulled the trigger and bought them yet. Their coverage looks so-so to me.

The ones I'm using are the Matte Fluid Acrylics, which are a little harder to find. Golden's regular Fluid Acrylics have a glossier finish but otherwise work about the same.

 

I like 'em fine. Golden Fluid Acrylics are about halfway between Reaper paints and tube paints in texture, thicker than most minis painters may be accustomed to but still fluid. They don't seem to be quite as matte as minis paints. While most of the colors I have used have had a true matte finish, some are satiny, including most reds I've tried and the Carbon Black.

 

(You can see the gloss on some of the red areas of the kraken, above.)

 

They are single-pigment paints which generally don't separate and don't need shaking (possibly a little if they are left untouched for months).

 

They don't have any additives (except presumably a little matting agent), so people would need to add their own flow aid, drying retarder, etc., if desired. I find they thin pretty well with water, but some colors work better with a drop of medium added as well.

 

Transparent pigments are going to be transparent whatever the brand of paint. Their opaque pigments, such as Titanium White and Yellow Ochre, cover just fine for my purposes. The Golden labels have a stripe of real paint over printed black and white stripes so you can gauge their opacity for yourself.

Me to Pingo:  Could you hurry up on the Kraken, please?  I'm getting inspired for upcoming adventures.

Pingo to Me: Sure.

 

Sometimes I wonder if she has any sense of self preservation at all.

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.
