Inarah tries the d20 "dragon" challenge

Recommended Posts

Link to original challenge: 




I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379

So I'm painting that. 


Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 


Baby needs a bath first.

Starting timer:




Washed up:




Dry fit and color choices. The brown is redder than it should be but is the closest I have.

Messed with it a bit today.  Brown ink with copper brushed over it on the body.  May go copper to yellow on the wings.

So, I worked on this a little more in January and February, and did not like where it was going and it sat for a long time. Then I primed over it and started with new colors: 



Base coat was 9408 Candlelight yellow, followed by 9287 Neon Yellow.  I washed the body with brown, and brushed  on a little olive green. 



At this point I've gone over the scales with neon yellow and brushed a "sample" grey on the head and feet. Also washed the wings with brown.

      I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out.  To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.   
      Here's the plate
      In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:

      I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.

      my second dragon for the month.  I didn't put a huge amount of work into this one.  one of my goals was to see how well the contrast paints would work to bring out the basic shading and normal tone for the dragon hide rather than having to hand paint all the scaling.  It didn't work too badly.  I did wind up having to do some significant highlighting and I had to do some additional shading work on the underbelly but overall the effect was pretty good for the time spent.  I probably should have done more with the wings but I just didn't have any inspiration for them.  the sections were pretty small and very flat.  I might go back and do something but for now just blue is where this young guy is.
      I did find the base to be pretty cool.  Hope you like him

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him
