Shaman of the Poisoned Pool

Recommended Posts


(reaper bones #77269)


I thought I'd show off my Frog Shaman before I continued him much further.

When I saw him in the box, I immediately thought I wanted to do a poison-dart style, so I set out to do it.  

I kinda' invented my own dart-species for him... but I think it'll work out well.


Obviously, it'll look better as it comes along (when I do his teeth and eyes especially), but for now I just thought I'd show off his skin as it comes along.


Next step:  Eyes (probably going to be an obnoxious yellow-green).

After that:  Making his skin and eyes a HIGH gloss to make him look "wet".

Then.... I can start to work on his clothes and accessories (and teeth).



Note:  I did his skin by coloring him with many obnoxious colors (faded to the best of my ability from one to the other), and then after that dried - I went over it with a thick black where needed to put in his "pattern".

He's done!  :D


Note:  Why do all my photos have so much yellow..?  Do I need to use a different light when taking pictures or something?

(his helmet and the sand are actually a light creamy "bone" color)

are you taking them under fluorescent lights?  or CF bulbs?   It is probably related to your light source if it is artificial.  If you can find "daylight" bulbs that would help but they should be the only light source active at the time of picture taking.

      I am pretty new to the hobby having started painting in February. I finally worked up the courage to post one of my completed projects in the hopes of getting some feedback. So here is my painted Large Earth Elemental  from the Reaper Bones line. Any advise is very welcome as I would very much like to improve! Thanks!

      Like the title say, WIP. Struggling a little with the vagueness of the sculpt, but this is an early Bones, AFAIK, so making allowances.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?


      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 

      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.
