Ral Partha Dragon (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

I finished my first figure for the year a couple days ago. It's also my first painted dragon.

Ever.

I'm pretty psyched about getting the eyes to look good on my first try.

That is exactly the expression on my face when I answer the phone and it's a telemarketer.

This dragon reminds me a lot of medieval depictions of wyrms, so very cool miniature. The basing is suitable for the dragon and I see you added a good amount of details to add interest. I like the colour scheme and the eyes did indeed come out well.

 

To enhance the overall impression I would suggest to incease the contrast on the scales slightly. A gentle drybrush with a dark green or blue might just do the trick.

If you could find a way to market that, you'd make a fortune!

 

Those are some great, deep, foresty greens and that base is really cool!  Excellent job!

nicely done sir.

Thank you both!

 

Nice work Chaos.  The base goes well with the way you painted the dragon to my eyes.

Thank you! I was trying for a semi-swampy looking base, I actually spent a fair bit of time going through different basing materials looking for things that would not necessarily match the dragon, but at least look complementary along side (or underneath) it.

I had a whole load of little details that I wanted to scatter around the base, but on my dry run it looked way to cluttered, so I ended up using quite a bit less than I originally planned to.

 

You did a great job!

Hey, easy there, killer! Let's not get all crazy or anything.

 

Actually, that's kind of the plan; I want to start working on bigger figures this year. I really need to get over the whole 'good enough' thing. The only way to get good enough is by doing, right? :poke:

Yes it is!!!

 

I was always afraid to paint a bust...Now I'm working on my fifth...

 

Just have a go at it and have fun while doing it.

      So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!
