I really like Julie Guthrie's rendition of the peryton, a monster (part deer, part eagle, all vicious) that casts the shadow of a human instead of a bird, and eats the hearts of its victims.
Reaper released the peryton in metal (03702) and in Bones plastic (77392).
When I taught my "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018, I used the Bones version of the peryton to demonstrate techniques for painting feathers, inspired by real-world birds.
And recently I decided to paint the whole thing, as I had intended to do all along.
I ran a WIP thread about it -- read it here. [edited link 3/29/19]
This is the result:
(No, I didn't paint in a humanoid shadow under it. I just think it wouldn't have been legible on this small base and rocky terrain. Idea for a diorama, free for the taking: 1 or 2 perytons attacking adventurers on a plateau, with the humanoid shadows of the rest of the flock unseen but implied above.)
Anyway ... Enjoy!
I painted the Bones Black, Bones, and Wizkids owlbears as Great Horned Owls. This is the Bones Black owlbear. Not sure why it isn't in the store, even under the special edition section. I used the number it was assigned my order form. Anyway, it is a pretty cool model! I have several of them so will be able to paint them as different types of owls. I definitely need a Hedwig owlbear!
For my Lost World Project WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=138
I'm creating a piece of terrain filled with all sorts of critters from my jungle.
These are 3 Ral Partha Velociraptors, 1 Bombshell Raptor Baby and a Toy Triceratops Skeleton.
I added feathers to the Raptors and skin and blood on the Triceratops skeleton.
The Raptors are feasting on their fresh kill.
Eventhough they are part of a piece of terrain that isn't finished yet, I wanted to show them off separately.
