elemental three : fire, earth, water

Recommended Posts

So I decided to do some elementals real quick. I gave them base coat of matte medium - primer for earth, because base coat.

Then I attempted the yellow-ning. First it looked good, so I tried to add a little more, mixed with orange tint, and ugh.


I think I'd recommend doing outsides red, and then use a yellow ink w/medium as "dry" brush to pick out details. It won't look right, but a lot of the translucents really seem to be table ready.

Things are looking better for the yellow-ning, now that things have dried a little.


And what happened to this arm?IMAG2761_2.thumb.jpg.51d8e89b07129278efcdce9cebf44980.jpg


And then came the stoning. I grabbed a bunch of random greys, browns, and other colors that might be stony in color. I missed a bunch, but the point wasn't to do every stone in a different color, but give it variety. When that's dried a bit, I'll do random blue, red, and green tints randomly before I do the stone wash. I'm expecting to dry brush after, but we'll see how it looks.




I have plans for big boy blue, but I don't think they'll be noticeable for a while.

Part one of water:

Phthalo green (blue) some matte medium and the new copper verdigris is my first step. It dried quickly, so I'll do some touchups soon. Next I'll try some ghost white at the highest points.

Unseen are the turquoise ink and phthalo green (blue) ink & medium coats trying to give a bit of variety. Last will be phthalo blue (green) in the shadows if something extra is needed.

Inspired by Siri's version here

The pictures went into showoff yesterday. Should be able to find by clicking on tags.

And because my phone was dead, now I'm pasting the link to the showoff thread.

      I previously posted a show-off thread for the male lion in this pair, but I wound up stripping him and repainting him after mistakenly ruining him when doing touch-ups/sealing. So here they both are!
      C&C welcome.

      I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out.  To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.   
      Here's the plate
      In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:

      I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.

      These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems.
      The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time.
      I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.
