You have a talent for painting oldschool miniatures, somehow they always look excellent and nostalgic!!!

 

Now I want one of these, while I know I can't paint it like that... <_<

A really wonderful paint job on that model!  I'm surprised how wonderful the sculpting its on it.  Makes me wonder who the sculptor was.

I have to admit I've always had that mental stumbling block with this figure because of his cold drake name, never makes me think of reds, but now that I see him in his crimson glory it opens up a world of possibilities! Beautifully executed figure!

Thanks!

 

I have a similar issue with vampires - I always feel like they must always be painted in red, black & gold. Maybe this sort of thing is a recognised "condition" amongst miniature painters Lol!

I troll for inspiration and a good kick in the pants! - Consider that accomplished!

 

This is simply gorgeous - beautifully painted.  The model is relatively uncomplicated and it seems almost attainable for even someone of my meager skills (i always feel that way... until i am actually painting!).  I have a couple of very specific questions...

 

The perfect shading on the head - is that all very methodically wet blended? - It looks like it could be a wash, but my washes never come out that nice ;)

 

What colors/process did you use on the spikes - i love this aged ivory look, but i cannot seem to get it right

 

Thanks for the help and the inspiration... off to eBay to look for an old school dragon ;)

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.

      Finally finished something for myself - woohoo! One of the set of Rocky baby dragons from Bones IV.  Went with a red scheme on this one.  Not going to win any awards with all the mold lines I missed!  Was supposed to be a quick speed paint, and yeah, that didn't happen.  Anyway, though he turned out pretty good, although the pictures don't show the highlights on the red.  Tried three different set-ups and still looks flat here.    Ah well.

      So my favorite inlaw and I were talking  Saturday morning, and she mentioned to me that she really wants me to paint her a dragon.  One thing lead to another and before you knew it, she was picking Blighfang out of the bones catalog.
       
      She then asked if it would be possible to base the colors on a favorite tea set, to which I really agreed because it's a little unusual

      I made a quick mock up that got the approval

      It didn't take me long to get to the store and pick up a dragon.w
      Last night I sat down and did the assembly.  There were a few gaps but nothing major. 
      Today I had about an hour to play with it, so I spent it using some Stynlrez to prime and sketch in my colors.


       
      Still really rough, and not really the blue-black I want to end up with, this is mostly a color sketch done really fast work the airbrush so I have something to start with. Pretty much everything from here will be brush work.  I'm a little on the fence about the yellow in the membranes, though I really like it on the belly.

      So, here I am again, starting another WIP; I'm hoping I actually finish this one. 
       
      Anyway, I have a need in some upcoming games for a colossal red dragon as a lieutenant to the BBEG.  I'm expecting this to be a reoccurring character, so I want a decent paint job on it. That said, I am not aiming for much more that table-top quality here, and will be using every speed painting technique in my toolbox to crank this one out, hopefully before the next game in mid November.
       
      I am also going to use it to christen my new Patriot airbrush and airbrush booth.  Last night, I primed the whole model in Brown Liner.  It took about 3/4 of a bottle, and I didn't have too much over spray.  This is a big model.
       
      As I have said in the past, I like trying something new with every project; this one it is the use of an air brush.  I want to use this model to develop control and precision both with my Patriot and Sotar brushes.  Prior to this, I really haven't attempted much more than priming with an airbrush.
       

       
       
      Here's a picture of him in my spray booth.
       

       
      Have a great day!

      The new Kickstarter got me motivated to dig up some old bones. I realized after all these years I have never painted a dragon, so I got after it. Rather happy with how this came out.
