Converting/Painting 01539, Gil the Chibi Deep Sea Monster Tiik


Recommended Posts

Ok, so 01539, Gil is next on my Bonesylvanian painting frenzy.

I'm wondering if I should;

1- Paint him the traditional green scheme like shown on the first picture.

2- Go for a more psychedelic scheme of color like shown on the second picture.

3- Go for a conversion, and add a bioluminescent lure on its head like an abyssal fish to make him look like a Chibi Tiik. Not excluding going wild with colors and trying my hand on OSL.

 

What do you think?

I applied two Gory Red wash on the gills and the mouth. And, a Grass Green highlight on the body and a blend of Brains pink/Imperial Purple highlight on the gills.

Then, I started highlighting Purple on the left and Blue on the right to create a psychedelic effect.

      Hi again, everyone!  Okay, so I know I was promising a good WIP thread, but I managed to finish this adorable little chibi up so fast that it would not have made for a very good thread.  The next mini will be WIP material!
       
      I actually started on this mini last ReaperCon, where I used her as a demonstration miniature for my chibi painting class, and I ended up liking the results enough that I actually came back to her after all these months (while waiting for some supplies to arrive for a bigger project!).  I simply love chibi minis, and the Reaper chibis are fantastic to work with!  Now I just eagerly await the upcoming release of the fantasy-themed Bones chibis!
       




       
      Thanks a bunch for looking!!!

      Had picked this one up a while back and after a priming frenzy recently where I brushed a grey gesso mix over a bunch of cleaned up minis, I had him ready for paint.
      Pretty happy with how he's turned out, especially as my first mini of the year. Think I'm going to try and finish off the Bonesylvanians set if I can. 
       
      (Note: This was a special edition mini in metal only that Ive not seen again since I picked it up.)
