Very nice work! You captured the croc coloring well and I like the somewhat surreal coloring. The eyes, claws and teeth need a bit more love. A slit for the pupil and some more shading or yellowing. AWESOME JOB!

 

Thank you! He actually has the slit for the pupil. The eye facing the camera was slightly deformed and not smooth and I guess the pupil is painted on the edge of the deformity so it isn't showing. My photo from the other side was blurry and I was lazy so didn't retake it. I will see if I can get a better picture tomorrow. The lighting kind of washed him out anyway.

Pictures never do us justice.

Great stuff - I love it!

 

I've actually had one of these painted up for some time now, it's pencilled in for an "as yet" unimagined diorama, I'm just waiting for a bit of inspiration so I can work out with what to do with it (been waiting for well over a year now........ :poke:).

I have such a hard time finding decent bases! I have a nice resin one but it doesn't really have a place to put him on it with all of the plant bits and stuff on it.

 

My, my... that is amazing. I have painted this miniature in the past as a fiendish crocodile, but nothing so elaborate as that awesome yellow-green blend you got going on there.

He is a fun model to paint...once you get him put together! I think my players may be running into this guy soon!

Oh, this is gorgeous. I love it when people reference actual critters for their paint jobs. It makes them look so much more interesting.

 

The blend of colors and pattens here is really nice. Suddenly you can see how such a big, menacing creature might be camouflaged among river vegetation.

      David Attenborough's Voice Over:
       
      Nature can be cruel and especially so in the Jungle and Swamps of the Lost World.
      Huge predators roam this place so a smaller creature needs to be smart to survive.
      Here we can see the Common Swamp Crocodile, the poor creature would stand no chance when a T-Rex or a Spinosaurus would spot it.
      So it adapted to it's environment.
       
      It's behaviour reminds me a bit of that of the Hermit Crab, in a similar fashion this little crocodile finds himself a piece of rotten wood, preferably a treetrunk and sticks it's head in it.
      Then it rolls around in the fertile soil so mushrooms, grass and flowers will grow on it's hide.
      This way it will be invisible to the larger predators.
       
      Unfortunately, as we can see here, that tactic proves futile against the Amazone Warrior who is in dire need of a new purse.

      When I first started painting this little beastie, I had visions of drool and viciousness.  But after several mouldline challenges I decided that this thing's mouth was already busy enough.  :-)

      The Screaming Antelope is one of the core monsters of Kingdom Death: Monster.  And the fact that you can get so many fine resources from it makes it one of the most hunted creatures in the setting.
      For this paintjob, I wanted to move away from both the grey standard color scheme for the antelope and away from the red "skinned antelope" look I've often seen.
      All together, I feel like this came out really well.
      The base is constructed from apoxie sculpt and green stuff.
