Superb work chris and I do recommend painting everything separately except for the last highlights(speaking from xp on this model)

That really is a COOL piece; AND your conversion work raises it to an even higher level of cool.

It is so much easier to see all the details now that you have it base coated. Have FUN wit the Beasty!

Thanks, Chaoswolf!  Glad you like it so far.  Now I just have to figure out what to do next! ::P:

Thank you, Limey!   Thank you also for the suggestion.  I think that is the way I'm going to go; in fact, as I was thinking about it last night, I think I'm going to push through and finish one arm just to get a feel for what I want to do start to finish, before I plunge in and start applying more colors and inks and such to all of it.

Thank you malefactus!  I'm looking forward to getting more done on it today.

Here's what I got accomplished today. I am working first on the left arm only.

 

     I first added some inks to the wood areas to give the look of various algae growths and slime.  I then base coated the coral, cannon and other iron work, lamp, and rope.

     I then applied a wash of Citadel "Nuln Oil" to these areas.  When that was dry, I highlighted the coral and rope, did some weathering on the lamp as well as add broken glass, and did rust effects on the cannon and other iron bits.

I'm calling this piece done for now.  Next, I will work on his right arm.

Thank you, Glitterwolf!  

I have to say I'm rather pleased with how that turned out myself.  I tried something, and it worked! ::P:

 

 

Today, while eagerly awaiting Bones 4 to launch, I painted up the right arm.

 

Like the left arm, I first applied some ink washes to look like algae and slime growth; then I base painted the coral, metal, and rope.

When that all dried, I gave those areas a wash with some "Nuln Oil" wash, and when that was dry I did highlights on the coral and rope, and rust effects on the metal parts.

Tomorrow I hope to tackle the legs and lower body section of the Revenant.

Today I got the lower body done.   As with the other pieces I've finished so far, I first added some inks to the wood areas to give the look of various algae growths and slime, as well as change the tone of some of the wood.  I then base coated the coral, iron work, some bronze pieces, barnacles, and rope.   There was also some starfish and other shells on this piece.

When that all dried, I gave any area I had painted a different color than wood a wash with some "Nuln Oil" wash, and when that was dry I did highlights on the coral, shellfish, and rope, and rust and corrosion effects on the metal parts. fullsizeoutput_20a9.jpeg

     Tomorrow I start the upper hull, which I'm both excited and nervous about.  That is the part that's really going to sell the model and the conversions I made to it; So I really want it to turn out good.

     Today I painted the top hull portion of the model.   This is the last piece i needed to complete.   I will now glue everything together and do the final clean-up work (tomorrow hopefully), and then I will post the final product in the Show Off forum.  Thanks to all of you who followed along!

 

     As with the other pieces I've finished so far, I first added some inks to the wood areas to give the look of various algae growths and slime, as well as change the tone of some of the wood.  I then base coated the coral, iron work, the bell, gold pieces, barnacles, rope, skeleton, and the succubus.   There was also some starfish, shells and other odds and ends on this on this section.

   When that all dried, I gave any areas I had just painted ( all the parts that wren't the base wood) a wash with some "Nuln Oil" wash, and when that was dry I did highlights on the coral, skeleton, succubus, shellfish, and rope, as well as rust and corrosion effects on the metal parts. I also picked out a few of the coins to highlight to help sell the idea of a pile of coins.fullsizeoutput_20d5.jpeg

Wow! This model is by far my favourite from the bones 3 KS (I have an unhealthy obsession with pirates and sea creatures) but your conversion really took it to the next level. I am hesitant to start this model. It's a little intimidating with so much detail and stuff going on. I LOVE the verdigris effect and rust on the metal bits you put in. I will definitely try that on mine! Why do I hear the song "under the sea" playing when I look at your model?! Amazing job. I can't wait to see what you do to the base (I hope you will share that too) :D

      Second background, in progress.  Started with tape to control swelling and rolling.  First coat was brushed (1.5" cheap brush from hobby store) with a mix of gesso, water, and Patio Paint Fiesta Yellow (probably a dab of khaki to dull the tone too).  After a day or two to dry I used a chunk of construction sponge to cover the paper with a mix of water, pva glue, a drop of dish soap (helps with rings at this consistency, or so I believe), and Ceramcoat Raw Sienna (possibly some Apple Barrel Nutmeg too for redness).  Swiped the whole thing for coverage, then blotted, dragged, and blew as it dried a bit to achieve the variation in texture you see.  This one is going great, I must say.  The first one I did didn't look like the image in my mind until about 7 steps in, and never quite looked right.  Question, comments, critiques welcome!

      Finished this a while ago actually, but am just now posting the finished product.  I got a bug and am now making a few variations on these--just on art paper for the moment, but I wouldn't mind having them printed on neoprene or something a little more durable.  Now I just need more minis to photo in front of them!  Let me know what you think.  WIP here:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83003-attempting-to-paint-generic-backgrounds-for-miniature-photography/&amp;tab=comments#comment-1760821

      Per Izzy,
      If you picked up either of the Art Books in the Bones III and IV kick-starters and would like to get them autographed, be sure to bring them with you to ReaperCon. Izzy will be signing them when time allows.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!
