I like the nontraditional choice to make the central head white. 


Went back and forth over head color placement. After looking at a ton of reference photos I figured color order is entirely subjective. I figured red is the most aggressive and would be attacking where as white would be more reserved.

Day Three Progress


It's starting to wear on me.... I'm enjoying the painting still, but it seems that every area I try to paint I come across another mold line.... 

One of the difficulties of painting in a game store is everyone around you is playing games. I finally broke down yesterday and took a break to play in the weekly Star Wars Destiny tournament. Managed to come in 4th out of 7 so that perked me up some and I got another hour or so in before I called it a night. 

Gonna stock up on snacks and try to hunker down and make some progress today. Because of work, I've only got 6 days off. If I get stuck out of town or working late I won't get any paint time in Tuesday. I've got 4 of the 5 mouths where I want them. the blue head is giving me fits. I'm hoping that if I can get the heads where I want them, the scales will flow fairly easily. 


Forgot to take photos yesterday so I'll try to snap some before I get started today.

Day 4 Progress


Hangout was a success. Got to chat with Loim, OneBoot, LeopardPixie, JSalyers, and Grayfax. Will post a link for today's hang out as soon as I get to the store. 


I'm a bit behind where I want to be. was hoping to be done with the heads yesterday. Don't even have one done. I'm still hoping the scales will go fast and allow me to make up some time. Finally got the blue head's mouth to come out like I wanted...



Liking the way my plan is coming out on the heads even if it is slower than I wanted.



Pulling the color waaaay back on each of the heads. I never liked how it just looked like someone stuck 4 heads on a red dragon.



Got some paint on the wings while I was waiting on other things to dry. 




Time to get to work!!!

This attempt is extra amazing due to the unusual material conditions.  I'm impressed you're doing it at a store!


Get any fans or groupies yet?  Have you had to explain that it's totally not a crazy thing to do because you're only following the instructions of an internet goblin who is totally real you guise?

End of day six


Will backfill progress posts but right now fall down, go boom. 

So technically I have intentionally  applied paint to all surfaces of the mini. I still have a lot more work to do but I doubt I'll have any time tomorrow as i have to be at my real job.

HUZZAH!!!!! :bday::bday::bday: Oh wow, he looks so awesome! :wub: Especially the wings, I LOVE the blending you've got going on there!


I'm witness to the fact that yes, his Ma'al and accompanying terrain are 100% covered with paint, and completed well before the deadline. It was a lot of fun watching the painting and thinking process as it happened! ^_^
