77029: Silverhorn - Blue and White Unicorn

Recommended Posts

From my drop in on London, I also bought a unicorn. Hell yeah.

I decided to do a classical pretty unicorn paint, and I had all these grand ideas of soft blue hued whites and stuff... And it all went horribly wrong because I drybrush a lot and am less than amazing at blends. Partly white blends. I actually ended up just outright covering up all the Vallejo paint on here (on the mane, tail, and legs) and just going to town instead with my usual GW paints, and then tried out my new Soulstone blue over all that. I was pleasantly surprised.

 

I ended up putting in loads of shade on him which I then tried to drybrush back out, but didn't get the gradual change I wanted overall. He's very tabletop, but... To be honest, girly stuff isn't my thing, haha. I like monsters way more. Perhaps I'll buy another and then try and paint that one as the evil twin =P

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 
       

       

       

       
      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

       
      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

       
      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
