02868: Eldritch Demon (New to Painting)

Recommended Posts

Okay I officially hate you since you are painting this good as a new painter.


Seriously though, looks really good, the wings in particular look great!

Purple text means joke!

Just to be sure you get that...before you run away...


It looks great, you're doing fine!

I would love to see a painted/flocked base to enhance the mini.


Keep posting your work!

Thanks everyone, I learned a lot from this one I really don't like how the blue swirls came out. I'm not sure how I could have done it better but it doesn't look as good as I was thinking it would lol


The blue swirls look alright to me. I would maybe try going over them again in a lighter blue (like almost white) with a very fine brush. That will make them stand out more from the skin.

The blue swirls look awesome to me. The figure turned out very well. 


Since you asked how to do better, I'll give the usual advice, and the advice which is still what pretty much all painters strive towards. I work on improving it on every figure.  

Here it is: more shading and highlighting. It will make each feature more distinct. The tentacles will get scarier, the arms seem more muscled, the wings more prominent.


Great start, and welcome to painting! Excellent choice of figures :)

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.

      Hi everyone, I completed this one last night. 02181, Sirithis the Succubus sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is a Dark Heaven Legends model. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint and mounted her on a 40 mm round base sku: 74033. Censored for the younger audience. Uncensored version of the pictures can be found on my blog or FB page.

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple more demons for you today.  This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D.  These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

      More Below the Spoiler:
      Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.

      If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.

      Also, how do you paint insect wings?  They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?
