Ironhammer is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!

Right, so I finally saw this challenge on the forum today and couldn't resist jumping in!  Probably a bad move with Reapercon coming up, so I may be a bit slow until after October (alternatively, if the Dragon goes really well it might turn out to be one of my entries :huh:)

 

I picked Kryphrixis, since I already had one handy from Bones III.  I rolled Cloudy Grey (16) for the primary color, Violet Red (11) for the secondary, and Lemon Yellow (5) for the third.  Not bad I suppose, as I've sort of got all three primary colors going (Cloudy Grey does kind of have a touch of blue to it).  This should be interesting!  A trip to the store will be in order next to pick up the paints, as I don't have either the red or yellow.

 

I'm thinking I'm going to go for the Star 3*** challenge and see what happens.

 

Oh right, and the objective evidence.

Well, there's the lineup of colors!  I picked up the ones I needed at Reaper HQ, and whilst chatting there about the project we got to rolling more d20s just to see what other combinations came out, the results of which were then shown to Anne.  I'm told my actual lineup got a rating of "Meh" from Anne, which is actually quite encouraging given her reaction to some of the other combinations that we rolled.  She was quite dismayed when we presented her with an alternative selection of Marine Teal, Lava Orange and Palomino Gold.

ROFL! I think this is quite possibly the best story to come from these rainbow dragon challenges. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

Hey that looks really goo--

 

[looks closer at your timestamps]

 

You did that in two hours?!

 

Holy hell! Who did you sell your soul to?!

 

Um....yes?  I think 2 hours is about right.  I can't remember the exact name of the demon with whom I transacted, but I believe it was something to the effect of Mediocrity.  I think I might have a bit of a problem with going to fast.

A bit of fiddling this afternoon, primarily doing the talons, teeth and eyes.  So far I'm pretty happy with the way he's going, though I don't envision him ever being really brilliant.  This guy is becoming much more of a speedpaint/tabletop/just for fun kind of mini.  IMG_8948.thumb.JPG.f2062afa4b2ae00120dae0503052e083.JPGIMG_8949.thumb.JPG.9d19d1021af9dade48b4bfe41e8ad2c3.JPGIMG_8950.thumb.JPG.ae1587a75c64a3fe2967cd497aa90a1d.JPGIMG_8951.thumb.JPG.36f97c7fd9defd9a57aaca24abbdb301.JPG

Going back in and restoring some of the shading.  Right now the current project time is something around 4 hrs.

And yes, somehow I wound up painting a dragon who apparently wears purple eye shadow.
