ub3r's unpossiblely unsane! - The 7 day Kaly Challenge (IN PINK)!

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone!

 

Anybody see any glaring mistakes or things I should touch-up or add before sealing up and taking final pics tonight?

 

 

On a side note, what color gold did you use for the crown (if you don't mind sharing)?  I'm always on the lookout for different golds as I'm looking for something that's a bit different from what I have now (admittedly a rather limited collection at the moment).

 

Cheers!

It's Scale 75's "Dwarven Gold" for the most part, I LOVE SC75's metallics more than any other brand that I've tried thus far. I added shading with GW's Agrax Earthshade.

Thanks!  Haven't picked up any SC75 yet (have some Reaper and P3).  I've been using Antique Gold mostly but been looking for something with a brightness between Antique Gold and New Gold, and that Dwarven Gold looks like it might fit the bill.  :)

Nope, no tutus were harmed (nor worn) during the making of this Pinkolich!  ::P:

Wow, ub3r, both your Kaladrax and the base turned out fantastic!!! :wub: Before you started, I was also picturing this totally Barbie pink dragon on top of a similarly-colored base, but you knocked this out of the park!! Using reds all over really helped to tie everything together nicely, and the titan turned out really nice!!

 

If you were wanting to make the titan look more female, perhaps tinting the lips a bit reddish and giving a hint of pink to the cheeks would help, but I think it looks just fine as it is. ^_^

 

Many congrats and huzzahs to you on your triumph!

 

Huzzah!

Thank you Mrs. Boot!

 

I may go ahead and do that tonight, we'll see how I feel as I do need to get working on a BUNCH of other things with only 42 days until ReaperCon!

Great work!  Part of the fun of watching these challenges is the creativity involved when you are forced to paint something this size in less time than you would normally.  It almost forces your tendencies toward perfectionism out of the way to allow your creativity to shine.  Bravo of Pinkolich!

Sealing right now actually so for all intents and purposes he's done. As soon as the brush on sealer dries I'll hit with matte spray and then set up area to take good final pics!

      I’ve been in a rut for the last few months not producing or working on anything. Partly too busy over the holidays and partly feeling uninspired. I want to get back into it, so to that end I’m going to do something different and pretty and light-hearted. 
       
      I present “Fade” from Mirico. She’s a gorgeous bust with very striking details and a lot of room to interpret artistically. I hope you all enjoy the WIP while you follow along and please feel free to offer your comments and critiques!

      Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" 
       
      I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
       
      Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

      For my Broken Gods D&D game, I've painted up all the figures for my group and am now getting around to painting up their mounts and animal companions. 
       
      First off we have Bagheera, the Panther based off artwork in the spoiler. Bagheera is the animal companion of the party's monk/ranger and normally it is a standard medium-sized panther that he can use to fight along side him, but the panther can grow into this large mount when needed.
       
      Next is the Golden Lion, the mount of the party's bard, based on the artwork below:
       
      Next is the Nightmare for the party's warlock, based on the artwork below:
       
      I painted up the standard medium sized panther to use when it is needed. The monk/ranger also gained a (perhaps) temporary follower in "Jim the Brown Bear" which I also decided to paint up for this adventure and future adventures as a companion or just standard bear.
       
      All of these are painted up tabletop to tabletop+ standards. I didn't want to put too much work into them as they are just meant to be on the tabletop and not to be put into any contests.
       

       
      Larger panther and the lion are the lioness and lion from Bones 3. The smaller panther and the brown bear are bones animal companions. The Nightmare is from one of Tre's kickstarters. It has a barbarian that goes on the saddles, which of course I omitted here and I'll either toss the barbarian in the BOGW or put him in the melt bin at ReaperCon now that he's not really needed and I covered the hole in the saddle where he would normally attach.
       
      There's one missing mount, a silver and black fox that I may also paint up for the 4th member of the group. She paints minis too, so I'm thinking I'll give her a wolf figure that looks very foxlike to have her do it herself especially since I have so many other projects I need to finish up on this month.
       
      Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and appreciated!
       
      EDIT!!
       
      Adding more pics of the figures in more close-up shots for each one.

      Decided to have some fun today as I was digging thru my figures pulling out stuff I am going to put in the BOGW. I ran across the hydra and remembered that next weekend I planned on throwing my d&d players up against one. 
       
      3-4 hours later I have a painted up hydra on a scenic base from secret weapon miniatures. Added some water effects for a tiny swampy pond beneath it. 
       
      I’d love to hear your C&C!

      Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.
       
      First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

      I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 
       
      After I'm done with these three:
      I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe) Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn
