I support gaudy dragons. 

your black-lining is a little heavy, especially on the outer (gold) wings, its kind of distracting. 

and on the wing spikes, I usually try for white, brown, black lines at the base of the claw-things.  Where did I put that tutorial... 



hmm that wasn't the one I learned on, but it is the same technique. 


but that dragon has great impact, it will be awesome on the table.

 Shiny... :B):


 The one comment that I would make is that I agree that the black-lining on the vanes of the wings and inbetween the rainbow colors is a bit heavy...


When you paint multi-colored wings, the lines of color need to closely follow the lines of the wing and the vanes in order to look natural. It's easiest to paint each section between the vanes one at a time as its own shape - each color should be roughly sort of the same wedge shape as that section of wing, with the wedges getting consecutively smaller the closer you get to the front edge of the wing. It's not unlike drawing a spiderweb. Thus, on Deathsleet, it might look something like this...

Here are a couple of examples of multi-colored wings I've done: magenta-orange-peach and magenta-orange-yellow...

      I sprayed him with black primer, then used overbrushes/drybrushes of Citadel Barak-Nar Burgundy and Vallejo Red Violet and Sunset Red followed by a wash/glaze of Vallejo Game Colour Red Wash.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
