Kyphrixis the Copper (Bones 3)

Recommended Posts

This is fantastic and really set off my imagination when looking at my unpainted model. I absolutely love the wings and the contrasting scales.

 

Im thinking about painting my clear version of him as a shadow dragon but my regular one will follow a similar scheme to yours.

I think you were able to break things down well.  I like the variation of tone on the scales and the wing membrane.  Great work.

You did give him a great deal of character. He looks like a dragon that has been through some things. Great paint job.

Very nice. I like the contrast of the pale wings, and how you did not go overboard with the verdigris and let the copper shine through.

Really fantastic - love what you have achieved here with the metallics

 

Can you say what specific craft paints you used? Is the skin of his wings a metallic as well?

The craft paints are "FolkArt Metallic". I got them in Walmart (Canada). 

I used copper (very red) and bronze (more orange). 

The washes were Vallejo game ink. 

 

Yes, the skin on the wings is also metallic. (Very diluted metallic paint on white primer)

      I have wanted to get into painting for a long time and have watched days worth of videos on it. i think it shows in how my first minis came out.
      the first was a reaper kobold and he looks a bit sloppy. (on the card for the hobby holder i got because i could not find anything else to put him on for the pic lol)
      next was a blue kobold and a baby dragon, I was still working on how washes work with the blue kobold but the dragon came out better.
       
      now the one i did today

      I am pretty proud of him, for being my forth mini i think he looks really good. he is colored like a ring neck snake.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      My wife, @Shinma, started to paint the Clockwork Dragon several years ago. 
      It got to a point where the body was nearly done, and the wings and base remained.
       
      We had prepared a big gear salvaged from a monitor stand, sanded down by a friend.
       
      Then, inspiration and drive was lost and it sat on the shelf, staring at her, unfinished.
       
      Recently she allowed me to finish it. I did the wings, small part of the body, along with the base.
      Here's our result!

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.
