::o: Oh my gosh, this is looking so incredibly awesome!! The eyes especially are killer, love the white highlights! And the lava looks super hot! 

 

My only criticism (and I say it only because you're entering it) is that on the right side of the jaw, you may want to add a touch more water effect to the tips of what's already there to show it starting to flow in the direction of the chin due to gravity.

 

Really amazing work so far! 

 

Huzzah!

CC is ALWAYS welcome thank you!! I did happen to go back into the mouth later to add more sater effects. Once it started to settle then it was hard to tell where i had even put it. (I think I had a bubble under it). We'll see today how it settled but youre totally right!! Thank you!

I took a bit of a break this weekend so I could catch up on other things. Plus I bought Pyre. 

 

I did end up adding more water effects to his mouth and this time it populated it better! I went over his scales some more and flesh and started to layer out the water effect on his chest so hes dripping lava. This potentially covers my awful sculpting there, but the prr painted OSL is doing a nice job of coming through. It will still need significantly more painting and right now the effect is just a test.....a bad test...but a test. I couldn't find a guide on doing loooooong strings of water effects beyond a water fall.

I know I need to thicken these drops more but these are okay for now. I intend to build off of it.

I added a bit more water effects to the lava below too to build it up some more from where its pouring. I'm not going to have it connect, however. I can only imagine that being a nightmare for traveling. 

 

His mouth. I added some yellow to the wayer effects just to get an idea of the glow I want to do.

Then I wanted to make sure his wings were matching ths style so far.

Hes really getting there. I sucked it up and decided to try sculpting his spine. Its a pretty big deal. Hes not Deathwing without his spine. The tail spike, I can probably get away with not doing, the spine however, I cannot. 

 

Now the question is do I do his entire back or just enough to prove a point.

 

I'm sculpting out his plates as,flat for now and then going to add the spikes. Im more comfortable going this route than trying to sculpt spikes and plates at the same time.

I wish I had taken a picture with the wings where right now it looks suuuuuper boring. 

 

 

I also did some touch ups on a side project for the Mr. Its not great, but its something mostly,for us.

Yeah, I tried to paint a beard on that one! Lol! 

 

C&C is always welcome.

Soooo. I'm still working this out, even more slowly now with my arm down. I'll be happy if I can just finish him. Fortunately the finer parts like his head and 75% of his scales are finished. The blending on the wings are done as well but could use a touch up. Once its done, hes getting wrapped up and put away for Reapercon. He was coated in dust earlier and. I had to give him a nice rinse. 

 

I gave in and decided that I cant enter him into Open without actually doing his full conversion so I started sculpting his spine. The spine of deathwing is a pretty big deal. Its slowly getting there.

I also got in some Warcolours that I'm experimenting with. By themselves, I'm not entirely fond of them but when supplemented with other paints they're great. What I dont like is where they sit on the color spectrum. I had a nice rant at the Mr about it as he just quietly nodded.

 

I make an example of this in the write up I'm doing for it. Basically if it says red. I imagine it would be closer to red but each one leans towards orange or pink. Using the reds as an example, 1 and 2 are more orange and 3 and 4 are more pink. Theres no actual red. 

This is the only one that has irked me so much as the other colors I intentionally purchased because I didnt own those types of colors yet.

 

Im almost finished with my darksword entry, though I managed to lose my fabric detail messing around with too thick of paints.

I ventured into a new realm and painted a Mousling. I love him. He has a boat named S.S Shipfaced.
