Calling it a little early tonight because I'm half dead. 5 hours of sleep and then work all day is not particularly fun. 

I'm happy with my progress for the night though. So much blending in my future. :blink:

You can hopefully see on the left that I'd started blending the darker colours while I was waiting for coats to dry. 

There's obviously a pretty big jump from dark to light there but hopefully I'll be able to make it work. 

Yes, yes, I also fuss at me to try things out before I'm in the middle of a 7 day challenge. Past Me continues to be a huge jerk.

very interesting!

 

I do like how you have blended the two dark's on the left wing but I think I am siding with past you...    This is adding a tremendous extra to the challenge!   (but I know you can do eeeeeeet!)

Oh man, sorry I missed you starting this, I've been rather distracted by Real Life lately.

 

Ooooo, Guindy, your Ma'al is going to be BEAUTIFUL!!! :wub: It's starting to remind me of a dusky sunset sky, after the sun's already gone down but it's still kind of light outside. Lovely!

 

You've got this! I know you can do it, and your Ma'al is going to be just FABULOUS! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

You nailed what my inspiration was. I'm glad it's coming across!

I was hoping to get both sides of both wings done tonight, but I'm just completely out of energy. I'm literally falling asleep at my desk. 

So here's where the insides of the wings are at. At least I think I know how to tackle the backs of the wings to get them done a bit faster. I'm going to try to get a bit more sleep so I'm better set up for the long weekend.

The blending is coming along well!

"Coming along"? You're killing me, Pezler. ::P: 

That's all the blending those sides of the wings are getting unless some magical force speeds up my painting threefold and I have an entire day left at the end with nothing better to do. Spoiler alert: That's not going to happen. ::P:

What? No! It all looks good, but for some reason I thought you were going to do a fade near the tips

Not sure what you mean?

      This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!

      Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh.  A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors.  At least they are working together...  they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis!
       
      we have a Halfling fighter
      an elven thief with a fixation for daggers
      a halfling bard
      the blue dragonborn priest of Protos
      the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head.  I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...)
      and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums
       
      hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....

      Here is my Callie.
      I painted her as a second WIP for my BONES 1 attempts.
      I really like the sculpt.  I painted her as a half-orc or orc.  She has some freckles, nice green gems, and some ivy freehand on the cloak.
       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.

      Got this one done at a painting day in about 3 hours of work, but interrupted by cups of tea. :)

      Hello, all!

      I'm planning to paint Ma'al Drakar as Dungeons & Dragons' Dark Lady, Tiamat.
       
      She's going to be, by far, my biggest painting project. Before I start painting, I'm planning some conversions to make her look more like D&D's Chromatic Dragon.
       
      I'd love to get any advice or tips that anyone would like to share about painting large models, or any of the other parts of the process. I'll share my plans, and try to keep up a WIP thread about this grand adventure.
       
      My first step is going to be pretty drastic, so if anyone wants to jump in with advice, please do.
       
      I have WotC's Gargantuan Black Dragon. The forward-sweeping horns are so iconic, my Tiamat's black dragon head (Ma'al's lower right head) should have horns like that. The Gargantuan Black's a perfect scale to use for Tiamat's horns. I'm actually planning to carefully cut the horns off the black dragon, make a 2-part mold, cast a set of horns for Tiamat, and reattach the horns back on the black dragon.
       
      Am I out of my mind? Does any one see potential problems with this plan, other than the usual challenges of casting minis, etc?
       
      Thanks in advance for any advice, feedback, and encouragement!
