Druid Bear Form - DGS Games Bear Form

Recommended Posts

Great Bear.

 

Good paintjob, I love the base!

 

The treestump, the rock and the leaves, it is a very nice base!

The bear is outstanding. My only critique is that the leaves on the top of the stone seem to be setting on edge rather than laying flat or being in motion.

The fur on the bear is excellent! As a nit pick, the claws of the bear should maybe be highlighted a bit.

UBERCOOL, ub3r! The fur looks INCREDIBLE...GREAT brushwork & color selection. The BEAUTIFUL base provides a SPLENDID setting. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks for the C&C everyone!

Thank you! That's actually a broken column (from Secret Weapon), the way I explain it is that the leaves underneath are wet and they stuck together as water will pool a bit in those recessed areas of the column. ::P:

Thanks! Good point, I'll hit it with some off white or some such tonight.

Very nice work!

 

Not being an expert, but looking at the eyes, they seem to be black with white pupils. Is this intentional?

Most close up pics I have seen of animal eyes tend to show them as a tawny yellow color to brown...

 

And maybe some very light grey between the shoulders and down the spine ridge if you want that 'Silver-tip' Grizzly look...

Not black with white pupils. The color is actually a light yellow to simulate the druid who has golden yellow eyes, he keeps his eye color as he changes into bear form.

 

I also looked at a lot of grizzly pictures, they normally have very very dark eyes. So I didn't want to leave them black or dark brown all the way through as that'd not read very well. 

 

He's a young druid so he's not a grizzled grizzly yet, no gray hair :;):

 

Also looking at grizzly bear pics last night really showed them having a VERY wide range of colors and combinations of colors from dark dark brown to nearly blonde. Reds in their furs to blacks to grays, so their fur colors are really up for interpretation as there's no one way with them. I liked the dark brown to blonde look of what I saw so I emulated that to the best of my ability with a quick tabletop paint.

 

Overall, I'd say this piece (including the base) took me about 3 1/2 - 4 hours.

I like the many color shades in the fur and the beautifully laid out and painted base.

One thing that might still be done: you could add some finelined but strong highlights on the claws (stronger towards the tip) to have them separated better and look sharper.

 

However, great Bear!

Really Neat!

Great composition for playable minis! What else could your players ask for.

The druid wants a few other forms... large dire wolf, large spider, large dire boar, and large toad hahaha!

 

I have a wolf and spider, but need to acquire the toad and boar figures. All of them would also be speed paints at tabletop to tabletop+ level.

      Another ReaperCon entry, and I'm pretty happy about how this one turned out! I wanted to pick up a Freeblades faction, and I went with Wood Elves, since my Frostgrave army is Dwarven. (Balance in all things!)
       
      The mini is from DGS Games, the paints are from Reaper, the base and pigments are from Secret Weapon, and the tufts are from Shadow's Edge.

      Friends! Here are 23 additional figures I painted in September. The results are largely for tabletop, or slightly better than tabletop quality.
       
      The Dreadmere Hunter was a free miniature at ReaperCon...I hated it but got it for my son, he loved it and his little 8-year-old heart decided that it was to be his DND ranger 
      I also painted the Barrel Mimic which Galladoria Games gave away as a new attendee this year. I painted a DGS miniature named Jhenkar (a small version of the Neverending Story dragon). I also painted two Red Box Games miniatures, Derek the Dim and Hvitarnor (first time doing a 5-o'clock shadow). Lots of experimenting with TMM and NMM. Just having fun, trying things and enjoying making progress...

      I’ve been in a rut for the last few months not producing or working on anything. Partly too busy over the holidays and partly feeling uninspired. I want to get back into it, so to that end I’m going to do something different and pretty and light-hearted. 
       
      I present “Fade” from Mirico. She’s a gorgeous bust with very striking details and a lot of room to interpret artistically. I hope you all enjoy the WIP while you follow along and please feel free to offer your comments and critiques!

      "We will launch the Eclipse Sisterhood kickstarter campaign on the afternoon of February 14th 2017.
       
      This project will produce the six core models of the faction: leader, caster, two heroes and two followers. And as many stretches as our fans help us reach! For the Traazorites, that was four models. Let's show the Empire these fierce women can do even better!"

      Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" 
       
      I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
       
      Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.
