you may be a second time poster but not a first time painter with those smooth blends and excellent color choices


This is excellent and I sincerely hope there will be a lot more!


Maybe even a WIP to share your methods with us!

Thank you for your kindness. :)


I am not a beginner to painting but I am a beginner to Reaper Miniatures. I am actually inspired by many of the painters here who are creating amazing works while pushing their abilities as painters. Plus you have such amazing talent behind the curtain that even I have been inspired to elevate my own practices.


I would enjoy sharing more with you all as this Forum has a great Community within it. If there is something you would like to see, please let me know. I hope to be an asset to this group.


I am currently working on the Frost Giant King and post WIPs on the Reaper Facebook page and at 1HourANight. (Also on Facebook.) If it is okay to cross-post I will post my work here. I am still getting used to the rules so let me know if I stray.


Thank you again for your warm welcome. :)

Really nice! I love your color scheme. The pop of color with the blonde hair is great.


Gratitude! I am working on Color Theory and found an App called Color Wheel that assists in color choice. I recommend it!

Saw this of Facebook and I have to say that I love the hue that the hair has, and it matches the shade of blue beautifully.


And welcome to the forums as an official member! I hope you enjoy crazy; it's all we got here.::P::lol:


Gratitude! I strove for the hair and Amber jewels to frame face and bust to draw attention to where I want the viewer to look. I was looking at Derek Schubert's work in the Inspiration Gallery and work to get better myself.


I have been reading quite a bit before I got the courage to make myself known. I think you all are just the right amount of crazy and kind. 


It is like a large family. :D

The skin tones are amazing!  That face is perfect.


Gratitude! I appreciate your C&C.


The face is what I strive to bring focus too: it is the first place a viewer looks. The sculpt is epic and allowed me opportunity to really focus on her eyes and face.


With smooth skin she has an illusion of youth, where I could make her appear older if I accented eye mouth creases.


She reminded me of the Titans from WoW.

Great eyes.


Gratitude. That is one of the most difficult parts of Miniature Painting. I appreciate your insight. (I even researched how to do eye shadow.)

Amazing job! I especially like how the eyes came out


Gratitude! It makes the effort worthwhile. :D

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon.

      Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon.

      He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.

      Another result from my 4th of July Paint Binge. A couple of creepy crawlies for the players to encounter down an old mine shaft:

      I saw this ad in Fantasy Modeling #5 back around '80 or '81 and immediately sent off for the Dragontooth catalog, and promptly bought the dragon. I think it cost something like $20, if you factor in the shipping. I knew when the box containing him arrived, because I think the box must have weighed twenty pounds.
      He was about the size of my hand, five and a half inches from tabletop to wing tip, and weighed approximately fifty pounds. Solid lead. Eight parts; Two wings, torso, four legs, and the top of his head and upper jaw. Wings would NOT stay on with crazy glue, epoxy, solder, or Sovereign Glue.
      My players must have fought that dragon three or four times in the three years we existed as a gaming group before we all went off to college and scattered to the four winds. One of the boys named him Skippy. As in, "Dragon? Oh, man, Skippy's gonna hit the table!"
      There weren't a whole lot of dragons back then. Toy dragons may have existed, but we didn't have any clue where to find one. And metal dragons had begun to exist, but I lived in a little tiny Texas cow town in the middle of nowhere. For us, there was Skippy, and we loved him well.
      So naturally, he was among the things my parents tossed out when I left for college. I have never seen another Dragontooth dragon like him. He was seventy pounds of solid lead, and probably illegal to sell, these days, but I'd buy another one in a minute.
       This is my newest dragon. Arrived today. He's pretty, and I hear they have him at Wal Mart, now. He and his box of friends cost fifteen bucks.

      And back in 1980, I'd have flapped my arms and flown to the moon by sheer force of personality if I thought it would have got me a dragon like this.

      But then.... today... you can find dragons anywhere. I think Reaper makes one or two different dragons, don't they......?

      Who was YOUR first dragon?

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.
