A Hell Hound (03609) Revisited


Recommended Posts

I finished the Blue Flamed Hell Hound.

Not happy with the blue flames, I may have to revisit it at a later date...

I do like the way his skin came out with the wet blend / layering...

The other 20 miniatures are clamoring for paint....



So here it is (for now anyways!)

(I have never been good a painting regular flames either....)


Comments welcome!

Very nice work! I think the skin looks great, too! I like the yellow a lot, but I'm having a hard time seeing the darker as blue instead of a gray or black. Could just be my eyes, or the screen, or the light, or etc., but I wonder if a little heightening of the blue or a little transitioning would help with that? I wondered about green, as yellow-->green-->blue--but I seriously have no idea what I'm talking about. Just a thought that popped. ^_^

I think it is the yellow/orange throwing it off for blue flames. I think blue flames would be shades of blue and white, the white being the hottest part. He looks really nice but I am not reading blue flames.

I agree.  Blue and white is the way to go and the blue needs to be a lighter blue.  The flames paint job 'reads' more as lava.  The skin is quite nice though.background_blue_flame_by_noseneighbor-d7

Hey folks!

As threatened, I revisited the Blue Flame effect on the Hell Hound. Many thanks to Erifnogard, whose picture below was my reference.

Not sure why pics are blurry, will retake later...


Still not sure if it is all it can be... But lots better than before I think!


Thoughts Ideas?


Thanks again for revisiting!
