I love him! Every detail I can make out is incredible... Even the shading on the belly. I have a new painting goal - someday I want to do something good enough that it reminds someone of your dragon. ::D:

That is a GORGEOUS creation. The depth of color is STUNNING. The brushwork, attention to detain & that GLORIOUS base are WONDROUS to behold. OUTSTANDINGLY WELL DONE!

Great story and great painting!  Wonderful copper scale work, which has to be hard.  I can't say that enough.

Took some natural light photos..they kind of washed him out a bit though, he's more vibrant than this

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      So I had this idea that Viridius was a forest dragon, and that his scales would color with the leaves of his trees.  I started on him about 6 months ago and finally finished him this weekend.  Big pictures so i'll spoiler most of them but I'm very happy with how he came out.  Going to be doing some additional work on my basing game in the future.
      Pictures are the best I can do at this time, he's way too big for my photo box, so I did my best to set up some canvases around to reflect light around as much as I could.

      I'm painting again after a looong absence.
       


      The colour scheme was inspired by Australian Frilled-neck Lizards and Thorny Devils. Base was extended with an MDF circle, cork, stones, and green stuff. I used my airbrush to prime it all and lay down the base colours, then lots of hand-painting, washing and drybrushing.
