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....

(WiP)

 

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

The others have already mentioned the blue flames; I like that idea, though. The skin is very well done, nice job!

Hey folks!

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

 

New Pics:

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!

I like it! It could probably use some Object Source Lighting (OSL) effects to fully sell the flames, but I have no clue how to do that myself.

      "Bring Out Your Dead!"
      I envision this as a wandering band who collects the dead. Sometimes they need to make ther cargo dead first. Being death warmed over themselves, they do not know what else to do with their unlives.
       
      lots more pictures beneath the click:

      The chibi smallworld minis are all based on existing normal minis in the Reaper lines. I recognized five of them from the minis I have from earlier Bones kickstarters, but not Arnise the female barbarian elf that I painted the other day.
      The reason being that the original was included in the Bones 4 core set. An older metal mini being redone into Bones material it seems.

      So I painted her in a similar scheme.
       

      The metal version is called Arnise, Elven Sergeant from the Warlord line, and represents the Sergeant of Almirithil's frenzied half-elven berserkers in the Warlord lore.
       

      Why hello there, you remind me of someone I once knew...

      Plonking away a the Bones 4 core set, this is number 5:
       
       
      I am not a number! I am a free man!
       
       
      The metal version of this is called Ankoa, Barbarian Hero.
       
      He has a really small head compared to most of the other minis. I expect he is not too bright. Probably not destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.
       

      There's a new playah in town! Come get some!

      AUGH! The Great Pumpkin Came!
       
      This was my entry in a painting league at another  miniatures forum.
       
      In reference to the longstanding Peanuts theme of Linus sitting alone in the Pumpkin Patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come bringing gifts, Santa Claus-style.

      It's a pity for him that Halloween is all about the scary...and the Great Pumpkin probably is not a very nice being.
       
      The miniatures are all by Reaper, the fences are from Mantic's Kings of War Vanguard terrain. I found the simplicity of the fences really helped to sell the story here. As one of the commenters in the LPL-post stated: "Less is more".
       
      Lots more pics, but yah gotsa clicks!

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.
