Edsterdoom accepts the d20 Rainbow Dragon challenge

Recommended Posts

Well after following this phenomenon for a while I have decided to paint a dragon. 

 

I rolled the following.

so the only issue I have is what colour to use instead of blush pink. 

 

I have the the following four colours to choose from.

from left to right:

Warlock Purple

Punk Rock Pink

Pink Horror

Tentacle Pink

 

i think Punk Rock is the closest.

Not the best will have to take advantage of the black as well. 

 

So Punk Rock Pink it is then.   

And I plan to do the 3 star challenge. 

 

I also plan to use Kyphrixis.

Unless you are going for the bonus challenges, you can shade with whatever colors you want. Just has to visually read as "a white dragon" and have your 2nd and 3rd colors as 2nd and 3rd most prevalent. You could do the white shading with the khaki, you could shade the white with gray, heck, even pink. Or pale blues. Up to you!

Well I started on the base and as this isn't part of the dragon I painted it with a range of greys and a few inks thrown in for good measure. IMG_2159.thumb.JPG.0c098876c894ccead42eb5d8bc5c4719.JPG

I am now ready to paint the dragon. And this has been primed in grey.

Some progress on the dragon over the last few days. 

 

I decided to to give the complete dragon a coat of Terran khaki.

Once this was dry a use use a thin black wash made up Abaddon Black and lahmian medium.

More progress on the dragon this afternoon. A dry brush of Terran Khaki was put on the model followed by a number of lighter highlights. IMG_2170.thumb.JPG.6fb6ead161af941f7477b5bc5419e5ef.JPG

I think it is close enough to be considered a white dragon. I will put one more coat of white on the model and I'll look at what I think of the body. 

 

What do others think it is white enough?

You might want to brighten it a bit more so that it clearly contrasts with your khaki. Since khaki is a light brown, close to beige, it is going to need some distinct differences to not just seem like dirty white. 

 

Nice work so far :)

Nothing wrong with dirty white, but I plan to add some more white to it.

A thin white glaze was used to blend some of the dry brushing followed by another dry brush of white. 

 

I think k am now content with the main elements of the scales. I now need to do the claws and introduce the other colours.

I am pressing on with the rainbow dragon at the moment. 

 

First up was to add some colour and so the chest got a thin glaze of Punk Rock Pink. Other details were also picked out. IMG_2182.thumb.JPG.82232bad557e9e4a78a745c010a755d4.JPG

 

next up I used the limited pallete to get the eyes done. This is a good challenge having to mix up your own shades etc.

the wings were tidied up ready for a black wash and then some highlighting.

      The challenge complete!  I present Kai, the Strawberry Dragon!
       

       
      Thank you all for the challenge and the feedback!

      I, Echoside, will be undergoing this awesome challenge as my Dragon and paints have arrived from Denton.  
       
      I have chosen the victim of Kyphrixis, The Copper Dragon for this 3-star challenge.  Will be using green and red liner to prime.
       
      My rolls:

       
      So after his bath, it was picture time!
       

       
      I think he will end up being a Strawberry Dragon! 
      First off, I sorry for the Cut/Paste first post, but it was fitting.
       
      Secondly, Kai (the moniker I've given to him) got himself primed up and ready for more layers while out at a miniature painting event at a local gaming store.  Such a splendid way to start the challenge. 
       
      I bathed the base unit in Sepia Liner, as I don't believe the base was to be done strictly in the color scheme of the dragons.  Kai himself was bathed in the Red liner, which is very purple if you ask my eyes.   The wing membranes were done in the Green Liner.  I'm hoping for some interesting undershading effects once the 3 primary colors start to roll on.  
       
      I've blocked out in my head what scales are going to be which shades and such, I'm just hoping I have the skills to bring whats in my head out on the dragon himself.  But without further ado, picture time!

      This is my first post here!  I have been encouraged for a while to join the forums and share some of the mini's that I have painted. I have been painting for many years dabbling in many styles and mediums. I've gotten more serious about my mini work the last couple years though. 
      I was hesitant to share my work, but figured, "What the heck! Why not!"
       
      I decided to start with this model as it is one of my favorites to paint and I just love glitter, man! 
      I painted this up for my first con last fall and it was actually purchased by my bestie,  he then requested I add the glitter (to match another halfling mini I did for him.) 
      This is now his alternate ego character (he is the DM lol), which in his campaign ge had only revealed himself to be a helpful travelling halfling wizard until this guy was done. Then it was revealed he was a celestial dragon all along and the main adversary...or something like that lol! 
       
      Please be honest and feel free to C&C! Ultimately I know the owner loves it, but I would love to see what others think!! 
      And thanks for welcoming me into this community!
      Oh, and as I am sure you guessed, I did get the Bones 3 Kickstarter so, please feel free to request I share any other minis I might have painted already or will paint :)

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      I finished this up right at Christmas to give to a friend as a gift. This is the first dragon I've ever painted (though I have been painting historical stuff for many, many years). It was certainly a learning experience, painting a dragon is not like painting a WW2 tank, and if I had been smart I would have done one for myself first as a test but time was of the essence and I was glad I finished it in time.
       
      I picked purple because its one of my friend's favorite colors, and was pleased to find there are actually purple dragons in fantasy, called Deep Dragons. I bought the Royal Purples triad from Reaper and used Imperial Purple as the main color and shaded and highlighted the scales with the Nightshade and Amethyst purples. The crest was painted with Coal Black from the holiday set before highlighting with the purples. The chest was a mix of Amethyst and Imperial purple. I added the blue gems on the chest late after seeing some other examples of Kyphrixis on these forums that had the gems painted.
       
      The wings in the photos are the third attempt at painting them, the first two versions I did not like. The first try was the base purple with a mottling of ivory. I was hoping to get a translucent look but it didn't work. Then I painted them Terran Khaki with the Ivory mottling to get a parchment look but that didn't look right either. I was going to repaint them in the base colors but wondered what they would like if I just covered the Khaki/Ivory with Army Painter Purple Tone. Two coats of the Purple Tone and I liked how it looked. I spray dullcoated him but the wings still have a bit a sheen from the Purple Tone.
       
      The rock base was painted charcoal then drybrushed with various greys and tans and the wood base is something I picked up at the craft store which was stained and varnished before the plastic base was glued on.
       
      I definitely learned a lot painting him and look forward to painting the rest of the dragons I got in Bones 3.
