I don't care whether you enter it. I just want to see it. ::D:


I do understand that it wasn't really done as a competition piece. And if you're flying, it would be ... tricky at best to bring that huge thing with, especially if you don't enter it. I really would like to see it some time, though.


So, what I found out about acetone and PVC: "As long as you don't let the acetone touch the PVC, you should be fine." It's possible that might be complex to arrange when stripping. ::D:


I'm trying to convince her to take it to RCon, because it is quite a lovely bit of work under any circumstance - let alone as part of a challenge!  Since her photos for the Ma'al competition are submitted, she is free to modify the beast now to bring.  I suggested she try W&N Brush Cleaner and Restorer, and to test it on scrap Bones first.  If it does not do anything weird to Bones, it should theoretically work to remove paint as a spot treatment.  Simple Green takes much longer to work, but W&N BC&R works fast. 


Also, I note some confusion about the end of Bones 4 and whether or not there was a big beastie.  I think this works out for the best, because I'm going to cap the goblin challenge pieces at 4 with Ma'al.  I am beginning to get legitimately worried about the deleterious health effects of doing them if someone tries to do them well - and at $150, Ma'al is a rather pricey bit of dragon to otherwise expend.

Maybe I should compile all of the info into a single thread in the painting tips forum.

Yes, please!


Congratulations on an amazingly well done paint job! Your version of Ma'al Drakar looks absolutely beautiful!

You kicked some serious butt with this one.:winkthumbs:

      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.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 

      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.

      He's about a year old now, but hey, I have to start with something here! Happily accepting critique (especially on photographing the finished work!)

      Happy Painting, y'all!

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
