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 am pretty new to the hobby having started painting in February. I finally worked up the courage to post one of my completed projects in the hopes of getting some feedback. So here is my painted Large Earth Elemental  from the Reaper Bones line. Any advise is very welcome as I would very much like to improve! Thanks!

      I ordered the new wraiths that were just released that were part of the Bones 4 KS. I thought they were going to be opaque (that's how they were first posted), and was bummed when they arrived as translucent. Mostly because I have never painted a translucent before. So I ordered up a couple other green guys to try out some technique.
      After botching up the Spirit figure with AP green quickshade, I moved on to this Grave Wraith. I used Muddy Brown on the ground, Mountain Stone on the gravestone and Bronze Dragon on the sword. I liberally used AP strong quickshade as a base on the wraith, and then highlighted with the Green Clear Bright. I think it looks pretty good. Any suggestions or comments welcome. I really want a creepy Nazgul look on my B4 wraiths, and this turned out better than I thought it might.

      Like the title say, WIP. Struggling a little with the vagueness of the sculpt, but this is an early Bones, AFAIK, so making allowances.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?


      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.
