I think plants would have to be added at pour-time and held vertically somehow to get the wavy look ...

one thing to try.  resin usually doesnt show layers when it dries.  you can get some really cool wavy effects by putting the resin in a number of pours and then layering the horizontal leaves between the layers it looks like the plant is following the current and even if you get a bubble or two it looks reasonably realistic as long as you are dealing with a shallow water reef

Ooooooh, that base....  And YAAAAAAY for eels!  Any idea which eels you plan to go for yet?

 

...Snowflakes are absolutely lovely, as a note... ^_^  (and there's also a huge reason why so many rapidly get the name "Houdini" in home reefs!!)

 

I have to think about those.

These are crude sculpts, nothing fancy.

I will think about this as well.

I'm going to use the UV resin which is also supposed to leave no mark when it is poured upon another layer.

Will experiment!

Priming, adding a few more seacucumber/worms.

Made some seaweed and coral etc, used my left over putty to make more.

The rest will be used on another sea base.

I'm curious, how are you going to keep the transparent sharks you made from becoming invisible when you pour the medium?

WOW! That is looking great!

 

Thank you, that's it for today!

Later I will add some seaweed, more colours to the sealife.

Then...***shiver*** the resin!

 

Finally after that I will glue the lovely lizard  on the base and then add some last touches to the land.

Somewhere this week I expect a delivery among other things it will have a bottle of mud effect.

 

I'm going over the top with this base, but I like it, and it is a good practice.

No worries.  I just like them because they're so full of personality, and when we eventually get a house the predator saltwater fish tank I want to do they'll definitely be a main feature.  They're definitely mischief makers, but apparently not only are they ever so graceful about how they move, they'll also pose for the camera, not to mention beg every time you get near the tank...

 

Love the komodo dragon, as well as the base!

Just be aware that eels might mistake your hand for food when you start feeding them by hand!

Better not let them eat out of your hand.

      This is my second entry into the Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. I wanted to do this one because I love doing dragonman (dragonborn) conversions. There just aren't enough kinds of dragonmen to model for various character classes. And I'm glad that the catfolk minis came out within the last year because when I think about dragonmen, I like to see their clawed hands and feet, so it makes them great for such a conversion in my eyes.
       
      These were the minis used for parts, including pieces from the dragonman conversion kit: 03457.
       

       
      Poor Shadoweyes got her head and tail cut off.  Then I had to do some filing and filling to smooth out the cuts (particularly in the back because the tail was sculpted against the backs of the right leg and sword) and some of the fur pattern on her arms and legs. Also had to create small bit armor at the base of the tail so the pieces flowed together well. All Captain Razig lost was his hat and added a head and tail from the conversion kit.
       
      Originally, she was going to be green with dark purple/red armor.  But after I got the original base coats on, I felt she looked too much like a lizard and not a dragon, so I switched it up.
       

       

       

       
      She ended up being the winner.  I was shocked. I figured I might place, but pretty as she is, I didn't think this was one of my better pieces. But she was fun to do and I'm glad the Reaper folks put together this event.
       
      And now, because I still feel bad about chopping off Shadoweyes' head, I'm using a portion of the winnings to buy another one to paint!

      Well, I managed to fight my way back into hobbying...at least a little bit.  The wraiths were some of the minis I was anxious to get at, so I wasted no time.
       
      I thought about doing the expected (black and grey), but that left me uninspired.  So I thought about ROY-G-BV-ing them.  But I didn't have any OYs that I thought would be appropriate.  So I just muddled my way through.
       
      My apologies to Bob Ridolfi, your sculpts are wonderful and deserve better than what I can throw on them.
       

      The new wood paints were brought out to work the haft.  
      Muddy Soil served as the base for Bloodstain Red and Clotted Red
       

      Nightmare Black followed by Carbon Grey and Glacier Mist.  This was a little too close to the Blue Greys triad, I was hoping for something further off.
       

      The robes were started with Coal Black, and then hit with Peacock Green.  Brilliant Green finished them.  The tabard was started with Pure Black, followed with Stormy Grey, and then finished with Cloudy Grey.
       

      The robes were started with Pure Black, then followed up with Dark Elf Shadow and Dark Elf Skin.  This is one of my favorite combinations.
       

      I love the Blue Greys triad.  Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and then a 50/50 mix of Twilight Blue and Snow Shadow.  I think this is my favorite.
       

      I wanted a monument reminiscent of marble, so I started with Leather White, Pure White, and finished with Sparkling Snow.
      The robes were done with Regal Purple, Monarch Purple, and Royal Purple.  The difference is a little more obvious in person, but I was having troubles with the camera.

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead.
      This thread will be dedicated to all the beautiful female vampires/necromancers/ghosts and apparitions.
      I will also include all my Sophie minis..
       
      Here are the girls I have painted before to show what this is all about, soon more Undead / Evil Sisters will follow.
       
      EDIT - Changed the Name of the thread from the Alluring Death to Ladies of Death since not all are actually Undead.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
       
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
       
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
       
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
       
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.

      Here are a couple of WIP photos from my T-rex conversion to the "King of Feathers". 
       
      I was working from this painting, from the "Tombs of Annihilation" campaign book.
       

       
      I trimmed away a lot of the ornamentation on his back and put on a base of green stuff.  Once that dried, giving me a smooth surface to work from, I started adding small strips of green stuff to jam the 'feathers' into.  The feathers are made from Dollar Store plants.  I used wire cutters to clip the ends off of about 500 individual plastic leaves.  Then I washed the leaves, so they would have a better chance of sticking to the green stuff and the glue.  They still fall out sometimes, even though they are glued into the greenstuff with superglue.  I would add a chunk of greenstuff and smooth it out.  Then I jammed in the 'feathers'.  Once I had a line of feathers in place, I put another line of greenstuff on top of them to hold them in place, and to be the base for the next layer of feathers.  Once I had all the pieces ready to go, it went surprisingly quickly.  The actual process of applying the feathers only took about two hours. 
       

       
       

       

       
      I used my airbrush to apply primer in a zenithal pattern.  Because of the complexity of the feathers, it was much easier to use the airbrush to prime it rather than brush it on. 
       

       
      Final paint finish turned out pretty well.
       

       
       
      Here is the same figure painted as a more traditional t-rex.
       

       
      This project was a lot of fun.  I spent a lot of time giggling over how the players in my D&D game were going to react when I put this on the table.
