Bubblegum Dragon

Recommended Posts

The problem at hand lay in a wealth of excess: too many dragons and too much paint. I have no idea where the extra Bones fire dragon came from; I'm assuming a Kickstarter, since I don't remember buying an extra. And every time I order something from the factory, one of the lovely people in Shipping throws in a bottle of pink paint.

It's not always the SAME pink... but I now have several bottles each of bubblegum pink, Breast Cancer Awareness Pink... this is not normally a bad thing, but I don't USE a lot of pink except in flowers, mouseling tails and ears, and occasionally clothing. Admittedly, I do a lot of mouselings, but still...

And then Berni hit it yesterday: "Why not do a Bubblegum Dragon?"

I didn't bother posting a picture of the dragon in question, because he's boring, and still not dry. But I will keep you informed. After I work the cricks out of my neck, that is...

It takes a tough man to paint a Pink Dragon. I wonder what kind of breath weapon a Pink Dragon would have; may be intense Double Bubble Breath.

I was thinking either two things....big pink bubbles OR a pinky sticky sludge

When the brown liner dried, I did a quick drybrush in white to bring out the detail, then washed it with Transparent Red. Watered it down a bit, and durned if it didn't wash out into a light red/darkish pink...

When the wash dries completely, I am pondering drybrushing with Bubblegum Pink, and highlighting with Breast Cancer Awareness Pink.

Interesting concept.

Gotta be Big League Chew or Bazooka  (since both those are pretty nasty b'gum) :lol:

 

I had to do a google to see what might came up & I came across this. May it bring you inspiration:

Hm. Glitter never occurred to me...

...and it's currently cementing to a base. It still NEEDS something... but I have to work in the morning, and Walking Dead is on soon... best not to force it.

Bubblegum dragons spew forth hot molasses.  It's considerably more horrifying the more you think about it:

Witch Hunters love the pink beasts because they have a sweet tooth (actually, a lot of big sharp ones).  On a good day with fair winds they can sniff out a gingerbread house at 15 leagues.  Of course, they end up going through absurd amounts of henna to maintain professional credibility.  That and the incredible number of chocolate coins...

Teased cotton balls dyed pink might be a means of modeling a cotton candy breath weapon.

 

Just saying.

 

It would be sticky. Also creatures would have to make repeated will saves to avoid stuffing their gobs with it once they were mired in it.

A Bubblegum Dragon spits gum on his enemy. 

 

This will harden in seconds and then said enemy is nothing more than another piece of gum.

Aquarium rocks for basing material? Bright colors. Goes with pink. Maybe red. Is there such a thing as red and grey -or- red and black aquarium rocks?

 

You could mix two colors, obviously, but I am sitting here wondering if they make split color rocks sort like Chessex Gemini dice (where each rock has flecks of two colors).

 

Thought of a breath weapon that would send both Sith Lords snd Barbarians packing:

 

 

Glitter Stream breath weapon... :devil:

 

 

Spoilers for evile...

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received

      continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier.  I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest.  This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series .  I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave.  (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there.  The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon.  Interesting but not what i wanted.  Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks!




       
      She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice!  About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time.
       
      For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago:


       
      I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill.  I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!)
       
      Hope you enjoy them!

      As the year wears on i continue to complete my personal challenge of 12 dragons in 12 months.  (I have to go count but i think i am there...  not sure though so I keep it up!)  this is another oldie but goodie from the third Dragon of the month series by Grenadier.  this was the January offering, the black dragon.  I decided that this dragon liked his underground layer so the base is done as a broken river skree.  the large open space made me add a small geode, just to see if i could do it.
       



       
      The dragon is painted with dark blacks and Purple shadow (which actually looks darker than the black so there!)  Then i used some new wax paints i acquired to bring up the colors on the highlights to give him a shiny scale and brightness.  I think this is the first time i have created a dragon that actually looks black but still has lots of texture and contrast. 
       
      Again congrats to grenadier for acquiring some really lovely sculpts and turning them out back when high definition was not a popular feature.  there is a lot to see on this dragon, right down to the small row of teeth that line the edges of his closed mouth.  I had a lot of fun painting him.  I hope you enjoy him too!

      Continuing deeper into the dry steppe I cane across a brass dragon in its native habitat.  I think she was keeping watch over a nearby nomadic tribe but she took off before I was able to ask.
       
      Another old piece of miniature history, this is the brass dragon from the 3rd and final dragon of the month series by Grenadier.  The amount of energy put into this mini is pretty amazing and, like all its brethren, this dragon has stood the test of time.  I painted this one using a basecoat of scale 75 metallic but then did all the highlight work using a wax metallic set I recently acquired on sale.  
      Hope you like her; this series does have some seriously dramatic positions for the dragons, especially when you consider that these are all softer, lead based minis.
