After several iterations of painting and base, I'm finally happy with my Griffon and I'm calling it finished!
The mini ended up looking a bit cartoony
I did go for something else initially, but it seemed too plain for a griffon, so I was happy to exchange realism for 'striking'. More on PSA.
And I just finished redoing the base -- thanks for support on the WIP board.
Dawnsfire roars her defiance at the setting sun. although they fear her power during the day, the servants of the Dark One will come again this night, seeking once again to gain the artifact that she and her ancestors have protected for a thousand years. Someday they may rest it from her and begin the ritual open the gates of the Night, but it will not be today.
Presenting my first (and probably last) Sophie mini, Mermaid Sophie!
Got stuck on her wings so she sat unfinished for a long while, and I never did manage to give her non-googly eyes, but overall I think she turned out decent.
As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.
I decided to go outside the box on dragon colors.
@Sirithiliel was a great inspiration, but I don't want to steal her colors directly. hopefully this one will look as good.
So here are the colors
lots of false starts found a wing I liked but not a dragon scheme.
How about a google search on lizards?
Bother. nature beat me too it. well maybe ill modify it a little .... it does look a little sillier than I want.
Ill go lighter blue on the main body and dark & striped on the tail
So that's Red liner on the red area, and blue liner on the main body and tail.
that will give the face a less monotone coloring.
I want to really try and leave the liner visible between the scales.
Planning on getting the colors right first then adding thin black glaze to provide shading. I guess white in half steps for highlighting.
most color changes will be when the scale changes. I'll paint the wings first, as proof of concept.
Kind of a fun way to spend the day. the power went off while I was doing crayon drawings. I didn't notice.
Storm Giant. Or Blue Zeus if you will.
Being from the first Bones kickstarter, this mini is in the softer material. That big sword there was a noodle when I received it. I repositioned it with hot water, and again, it is for the most part OK even if it is slightly bent, it is only apparent from certain angles.
Also, it has a mould line indentation groove going down the front shoulder that I probably should have filled, as it became very apparent after painting.
I based it on a 76mm bespoke 3Dprinted round lipped base.
For some reason, the female is quite a lot smaller than the male. Say what you will, they certainly are giant sized when compared with humans!
I chose to paint them as Papa Smurf and Smurfette, just because.
In the third kickstarter Reaper started redoing the Giants, replacing them with significantly larger versions of previously released ones. These have not been remade (yet). I would expect them to do that in the expected-to-be-upcoming fifth kickstarter, as they have recently shown off a print of the same female figure in a different pose and at about twice the size.
