tiniest rhombus

Tiniest tackles DDS 2 in 7 days or 7 years.

Recommended Posts

While I have great respect for everyone taking on the DDS 2 challenge...I'm not doing that. ;-)

Since the whole reason I wanted an airbrush was to do these big figures with less hassle, I'll be using my airbrush. I've primed the dragon bits. Pics soon.

*not sure if should like or dislike*

 

Ehhhh... I'll just give you some Sanity Points.  I wasn't using em anyway.

 

Are you sure? Do you have enough to share? You might need them later , better keep at least a few.

 

What would normally take me all day to do, was done in about 2 hours. airbrush :wub:

 

And pics. Basecoated my deepest shadow color, a mix of nightmare purple and imperial purple. Then basecoated clotted red. I think I managed to cover up too much of the purple on the body. I did a better job of keeping the gradient I was looking for on the wings, arm, tail and head. Doing a fire and ice theme. The terrain will be snow covered, I'll attempt to make the area the dragon has landed, melty drippy snow.

They are the bees knees. my needle is .35, fine for basic basework but a there's bit of overspray So I can't get too fine if a line but good enough for now. I love my airbrush station but the walls are a pain to put together. It's supposed to be collapsible but I'm thinking of supergluing the tabs in p,ace. I don't need it to collapse.

Top of wings basecoated in burning orange, several glazes of clotted red. There is no special reason i did it this way other than I screwed up, the underside of the wings was supposed to be burning orange, not the top....then I thinned the red too much. It's okay, nothing a little scotch and soda won't fix. Thanks for looking.

Yup, love my airbrush as well.  Pretty much only use it for basecoating but that is a huge time saver.

 

Edit:  Meant to say that I really like that orange-red you have there, it works for a red dragon imo.

Top of the wings, a bit shiney from the satin varnish I put on to protect the top while I work on the inside. I'll go back over them with dull Cote later. Paints used. Clotted red, burning orange, fireball orange, hearth fire.

Amazing wing color.

 

They look very leathery to me. Do they look brown-ish or more red-ish in person? I'm surprised they look so brown in the photo since you only used reds and oranges.

Very nice color transition.

 

I am liking all these different takes on this mini.

 

I can call it a mini because I don't plan on painting it anytime soon.

 

Keep it going tiny, you and your airbrush got this.

      We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge.
       
      For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/&
       
      The short version of the rules is that I will be painting up Dragons Don't Share - 2014 edition in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0.
       
      Here's the long version of the rules:
       
      You are all invited to join me in my descent into further madness! But only if you bring chocolate and gummy worms.  
       
      On a personal note, out of all 4 Goblin Challenges, this is actually the one I've been the most nervous about all along (yes, even more so than Ma'al Drakar). Those adventurers are likely to prove to be 5 lovely little time sinks for me, and I'll have to concentrate very hard not to get caught up in all those beautiful details on them! But who knows, maybe it'll end up being the terrain that eats all my time and sanity; we get to find out together!
       
      My general plan is as follows:
      The first couple of days will focus on brown linering and basecoating ALL THE THINGS, while also putting on faces and eyes while my hands are still fairly steady. I will work primarily on the adventurers the first few days, but will take 'breaks' to work on the terrain and the dragon in between to let my eyes and hands relax a bit from the tiny work. My aim is to finish the adventurers by the end of Day 4, or at least get them to "good enough" status; fun fiddly detail bits can be added after this point if I have time, but even without those the figures could be declared done. My final day will likely be focused on finishing up the terrain, and possibly the dragon's wings. Not sure about that yet, but that's what I anticipate.

      Here is the warrior/paladin guy from my Dragons Don't Share 2 set. He came without his shield so I used one of the new ones from Bones 3. I realized after I super glued it that I stuck it on wrong. Too bad because my super glue works tremendously well! It's not that big of a deal to me so I went ahead and painted him up. I really like how he turned out and I hope you guys do too!
       
      C&C always welcome.

      This is the dwarf cleric from my Dragons Don't Share 2 adventuring party. He turned out to be my favorite in the group! He is mostly painted with Reaper paints that I picked up at Wintercon and I love Peacock Green and my new favorite is Nightshade Purple! Seriously, 4 out of 5 of the adventurers has Nightshade purple as either a dominant color or mixed with another color or used as a shadow. What a versatile color!
       
      Anyway, this guy was so much fun to paint. He is being so sneaky or cautious, I can't tell which!
       
      C&C welcome!

      The last of the adventurers painted for my Dragon's Don't Share 2 set is the rogue. I wanted her to be wearing dark clothing and armor but not necessarily black. Cue Nightshade Purple! All of her clothes have Nightshade Purple either as the base or mixed in with other colors. Even her blades have a little NP mixed into the shadows and glazed over. I also gave her a bottle of poison which she has coated the tip of her dagger with. I didn't notice the squashed skeleton on her base until I started painting it. Fun little detail!
       
      C&C welcome!

      Here is the mage/wizard/sorceress in my Dragons Don't Share 2 adventuring party. She was fun to paint. I wanted a diverse group so I gave her more of a Mediterranean skin tone and ombre hair. I am still trying to decide if I want to give her a spell effect in her giant hand. It doesn't bother me as much now that it is painted so not sure if I will go ahead with a spell effect or leave her as is. I tried a little freehand on her scarf/cape thing. They aren't quite even but I was relatively happy with the design so am leaving it alone. I am getting a dvd so hopefully my freehand will improve.
       
      C&C welcome!
