Thanks all.

 

I really need to stop taking pics at the last minute with my iPhone. The blending on the dracolisk's wings and glow of the flame on Agramon's arm and thigh are hardly noticeable. I think this may be the first month that the minis are significantly better than the photos. :(

      Basilisk from the Bones 5 Core Set.
       
      I wanted to give him the classic green and gold coloring of the basilisks of lore, and I am happy with how he turned out.
       
      Learning how to blend and layer is a continuous process of improvement for me, so tips and advice are welcome!

      One of the two selections this week was the basilisk. I immediately knew I wanted to this guy as blue when I saw him, but didn't realize I'd go orange, too.
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       

       
      Wins:
      * Started this one with a brush coating of the new dark purple from Bones 5.  I mean, you get these new colors, you gotta use 'em, right?
      *  Lightening up the purple to blues with rich indigo, then again to aquamarine.  I wanted the blue to really pop.  
      *  After getting all the blues in place it immediately occurred to me I wanted to go in a different direction.  I looked at the color wheel and saw orange on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Let's do it.  Used it as a filter to not lose the dry brushing color and it ended up making a cool skin effect.  Sweet!
      *  Using the orange now as my basis for something brighter and could lighten up, I placed it between all the scales and used it to bring forward the shadows.
      *  The shadows weren't bright enough, so I took the liberties of using an orange/yellow mix to show scales on the underbelly and match them to the little dots I found on this guy's skin.  With there only being a few dots they looked out of place, so I added some more dots to bring it out.  May have gone a little heavy handed...
      *  Taking a note from my Werewolf I did in a previous post, I used the Drakenshade for areas where the muscle or armor were and used it very sparingly.  Looks great and worked great!  Helped define the musculature.  
       
      Misses:
      *  Eyes pop, but feel I could have made them better.
      *  I love the way the bone and horns look, but I'm not sure they work for this basilisk.  I originally had them as blue, but opted to keep them light.  Not sure how anyone else feels about this?
      *  The scales on the feet needed something and rather than going orange, I went with the blue seen above.  Again, seems pretty bright and I'm not totally sold on it, but it works.
       
      This guy was fun, looks good overall, but also has a LOT going on for colors.  Obviously, this is a departure from classic basilisk colors, but then again - IT'S FANTASY!  I thought making the yellow areas look as though they are soft spots for a team to target.  Not sure it worked fully, but it was fun.  Win.
       
      If you have any feedback or comments, please lay them on me.  I can't get better without some direction from the team.

      I ended up going in a little bit of tropical direction with this guy, using some really bright, lush greens. For his eyes, I wanted to elude to his petrifying gaze by giving them milky, cataract like coloration.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....
      Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.

      So, a local store had a painting contest - entrants drew a random number from a jar, and that number equated to a Reaper Bones mini we had two weeks to paint and got to keep. I was remarkably lucky, and got the Dracolisk, by the incomparable Julie Guthrie. Since the rules said no more than 75% of the model could be obscured, I felt somewhat open ground with some stumps and some broken statues would be best.
       
      There will be two prizes - one from customer voting, and one from Staff Judging. Wish me luck!
