The Bony Guys look WONDERFUL; they painted up  far better than I would have thought possible. FANTASTIC WORK!

Fantastic Job of making each one a separate entity !

Like that you color coded them, and that touch of color on the spear really

adds that needed over the edge touch.

Really like what you have done !

They turned out awesome. glad you tested so many techniques on them. What do you believe worked out the best for them?

I think my favorite technique was a base coat of golden skin shadow, then drybrush a 50/50 of that with the darkest of the bone triad (stained ivory) and so on with 1 or 2 more slightly brighter shades. I'd go brighter sometimes or leave darker other times. Then brown wash over the whole thing. I think that lent to a sort of yellow-ish bone with the wash last leaving good definition. It's probably the most common color combo I did.

      I am pretty new to the hobby having started painting in February. I finally worked up the courage to post one of my completed projects in the hopes of getting some feedback. So here is my painted Large Earth Elemental  from the Reaper Bones line. Any advise is very welcome as I would very much like to improve! Thanks!

      Like the title say, WIP. Struggling a little with the vagueness of the sculpt, but this is an early Bones, AFAIK, so making allowances.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?


      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 

      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.
