D&D NPC: D'Khul, Bathalian (#02568)

Recommended Posts

I think the flesh came out great.  Definitely a great interpretation, I agree it doesn't need to be the stereotypical flat dark purple.

 

Have to echo the others as well, the color choices for the clothing is *excellent*.  The contrast from the magenta robe to the purpy blue cloak is stellar.  Wonderful job, this is a beautiful mini!

Wow!  I need to save this for later.  Definitely want to steal your metallic skin idea.  Nice job on the robes, too.

Mmmm... I'm for muted skin tones, akin to octopi, that said I picked up the same mini and the iridescence of the robe strikes a cord.

 

Reaper paints, correct?

I'm using Vallejo colors. Except for the skin, I basecoated it with Scale75 "Amethyst Alchemy".

I got the iridescent pigments in an assortment box from a local (germany) pigments dealer. I only found it in the german version of their shop:

...dunno if they ship the european product range to your place.

 

At home I will look up the exact 2 types I used on D'Khul and tell you tomorrow. You may find them available elsewhere.

Glücklicherweise ich ein wenig Deutsch gelernt

That's the (American) English equivalent.  There's also the different languages switch in the top left, which I saw after short while. sigh

Wunderbar! :)

I've looked up the 2 colors from the box I used on D'Khul:

50065 Pyrisma green

50067 Pyrisma violet

 

These don't do the pearly multicolor flip-flop thing so much but restrict the reflected light so a single narrow color spectrum.

 

The nice thing about iridescent colors is that they work quite well even under dim or yellowish light, where a normal flat color within the blue range would normally lose a lot of vibrance. Iridescent pigments are not so good for nailing a very specific tone but when it comes to "anything" blue, violet, green etc. they'll simply reflect the whole tone range existing in the light source's color spectrum whilst cancelling the rest totally (if underpainted black), so a blue robe would still appear blue in your dungeon master's candle-lit hobby room.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      For my ReaperCon entry this year, I painted my Iron Cobra and a chest that I sculpted for one of the Bones KS's.  I'm not entirely happy with these pictures, as the blue seems to be diminished in them (the background and steel colors are actually light blue; maybe it is my monitor?).  I may adjust them later and re-post, but for now, they're pretty close (as close as I can get when photographing metallic paint).
       

       

       

       

       
       
      Oh, and I placed a Gold Medal with this in the Open Category.

      Here's 01573, Mel the Chibi Bathalian (illithid), Exclusive 2015 Reaper Artist Conference Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
      This one was certainly one of the most challenging and fun Bonesylvanian I painted so far. I've read about their background story and knowing that illithids comes from outter space I decided to give it a little astal twist. I was greatly inspired by the amazing paint job on Antimatter Games DeepStar Kraken and added dots on its forehead.

      I did the dragon for Dragons Don't Share as a metallic test for my Ma'al Drakar I just posted pics of. Overall I am happy with him, and am glad I covered the body Aged Pewter with Adamantium Black.
