Nice colors on this one!  I like how you handles the transitions.  I'm laughing at sharktopus.  Reminds me of a story from one of my favorite children's picture books, "Cowboy and Octopus" by my favorite picture book authors John Sciezka and Lane Smith.  

 

"I see your little shark thing." :lol:

I like how the browns stand out on that sculpt. How big is it?

 

Thanks, Tjrez!   The figure is 7 inches long.  I guess in retrospect I should have included anther figure for scale in one of the shots. :)

Nice work! I especially like the eyes.

 

Thanks, Guindyloo!  I actually googled "octopus eyes" to try and get the look correct.

Thanks, InvisibleThumb!   I never read that book.  Though I think this sharktopus would only look cooler with a Cowboy Atlantean figure mounted right behind the head! ::D:

"nothing fancy". I think that looks super fancy!

 

Thanks, Glamberry!  What I was trying to say is that it was all done for the most part with quick and simple washes and drybrushing, and minimal labor intensive blending, shading, and highlighting.

Fantastic job! It almost looks like something I caught a glimpse of while at sea many years ago...:;,;:

Thanks, Type2!   Yum, crab meat!  Though I don't think this fellow would taste quite as good!  :lol:

Great work!  I love the color choices with the beautiful cool watery blues contrasting the gross fleshy browns, pinks and yellows in the front.  They eyes look creepy good.

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I got this one printed out in FDM from a kickstarter.
      In hindsight I should have chosen resin, it did help me decide to go for a resin printer myself.
      The printlines are visible and it's rough, I even used putty to smooth things out where I could.
       
      All in all a nice sculpt though.

      The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
       

      As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames.  I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
      This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
      At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
       

      What is this sorcery?! 
      Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

      Alas, the fangs I painstakingly painted in do not show up in the photo.
