So my wife finished painting a second dragon.
She is really starting to enjoy painting the miniatures and is looking forward to the Bones 4 next year.
Trying to decide what miniatures to hold her over till next year.
I've only got a handful left, Diabolus the Devil Dragon(which I plan to paint) and about 5 other miniatures
This is the first large fig that I painted a few weeks ago. I did a matte varnish on it shortly after, but would like to add some highlights at some point. Does paint stick to varnish well or should I just skip the highlights? I was going for a black dragon look, since I've got an adventure planned that features one. I have been practicing with my photo taking, but haven't found a good spot in the house that has decent lighting. Hopefully this one turned out OK without too many distracting elements. As always, I appreciate any advice and critiques. Thank you!
My most ambitious project to date, Narthrax was a fun little challenge for me over the last couple of weeks. My son wanted him to be black, so after I based him in Stormy Grey, I mixed up 3 parts each Adamantine Black and Imperial Purple with a single drop of Pure Black (then repeated it several times!). For the undersides of the wings, I replaced the Imperial Purple with Ruby Red - and did the same for his main back-spikes and horns. I went too far down his tail with the reddened segments and after realizing that it just didn't look right, thought I had successfully covered it up - but from the backside picture, I can see a distinct reddish hue to the top of the upper tail..
I also think I need to touch up the foot-pads and perhaps the trailing-edge bone tips on the wings with - they looked nice with just the Stormy Grey, but the camera is making me second guess that thought..
Something I haven't done on the forum before is actually do a WIP that shows me working through the stages on a model. So, to hopefully get my advice and motivation, I will document my progress on Cinder.
As I am normally focused mostly on table-top quality, and rushing through things, this will be a big change for me.
Any advice or criticism appreciated.
Today I have the first layers done. I am going more for a black and purple dragon (think Disney's Sleeping Beauty). The scales will be highlighted with dark purples to still read black but be unified, while the belly and wing membranes will be purple. The first base coat of black/purple has been laid down but my poor photography and really subtle transition are lost in the photos.
