77369: Bones translucent Shadow & 03027: Spectre WIP

Recommended Posts

I have 2 of the clear bones shadows and 1 of the original spectres in metal. I might pick up another bones one.

I'll be trying to paint these a few different ways, so they'll be distinguishable, but also similarly enough that they might be thought of as a unit.

 

The metal spectre will be painted as a solid being, doing the reverse dry-brush, and glow-in-the-dark medium.

One of the bones minis will use magenta, purple, payne's grey, prussian blue, dioxazine purple, maybe a pthalo and some warlord purple, and spectral glow for solid paints. I am going to do some experimenting.

 

This will probably be done slowly through march or april

 

I may do some zombies really quickly to go along with all this.

Sounds cool, have always been curious about the clear bones figures and how well they'll work.  Will be watching this!

Some stuff came up and I got delayed. Here's a pic after 3 days of 15 minute sessions.

Freak Flex red (magenta) and purple translucent tints.

It's very reflective at the moment but I think you'll see some lighter areas than others.

Only one quick session today. I tried to line... It didn't work so well. On a whim I did a little highlighting of the clothing, wet brush style. I like it, not sure what I'm going to do now. I might continue with pink/purple and leave it at that.

I'm mostly done on the first one minus eyes and filling in the base. Soon I'll post the last few photos of this first one before I move on to #2.

Sometimes it's good to remember how far we've travelled. Also, the guy on the left glows in the dark a tiny bit (not enough to photo, but I'll try).

The painted one isn't as transparent as I hoped, but you can still see through. I'm going for more of that with #2

So I can confirm that #1 on the left, above, glows in the dark. But after 1 hour of direct light, and being too faint to photograph, it's never going to come up.

#2 Got a bit of work for the first time in forever.

I had an initial drybrush of Spectral Glow

Didn't like it, so I re-applied the inks. Didn't like that (so I didn't even take pictures).

Then re-applied Spectral Glow. Didn't like that either, but that's where we are.

Outside of touching up the chest, the eyes, the forehead, and mouth with inks... any thoughts on how to rescue this?

      Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades.
       
      My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

      Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu 
      Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think.
      The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done.
      Hope you like it:



      As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

      Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs.
      So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type?
       
      And this is the outcome:

       
      Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :)

      Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!
