77580: Ma'al Drakar (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Not bad, but I can see that you made a mistake there in hour 375. 

 

J/K, she's perfect...  Truly outstanding!  Makes me wish there was a reaction stronger than "Like" that I could click on.

Wow this is incredible. The detailed work on the scales speaks to the meticulousness of your work. I also love the ivory/cream shading of the white dragon color scheme!

I have to admit, I'm actually not 100% happy with the white one.  It took me the longest to finally just stop futzing with it and accept what it was.  I know I didn't want to go the usual blue/cool shaded white that I see most folks do.  So I used a stylized version of some natural resources for color choices instead.  I think it's the "chalkiness" of it, which I've heard can be an issue when painting white.  But everything on her was an experiment.  And in the end, I'm happy with the overall figure as I learned a lot doing it.

Beautiful work!

 

I'm curious to know what was used for the base though.

 

Base is an 11" wooden round plaque I bought at Michael's.

 

And thanks, everyone, for the compliments!

      So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties.  Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint.
       

       
      was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on.
       
      Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans it daily.
       
      With his long weekend I was able to paint quite a lot, and this gentleman was done pretty much all this week. He'd been sitting on a base primed for years, but he seemed to be a nice straightforward figure that I could get done quickly.
       
      So hopefully you all enjoy another trip back into our miniature prehistory!

      Hello all and good evening!
       
      Another figure finished last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from the early eighties, Fighter Mage with Sword, a set of three fighter mages that she sculpted in the good old days.
       

       
      Fun figure, pretty straightforward.  His long scarf is apparently a millipede, also a nice little touch!
      Anyhoos, did him in kind of an oriental style, hope you all enjoy him!

      Yeah, snakes have been around since the Garden of Eden. The earliest fossils of snakes we have date from the Cretaceous period, 145-66 million years ago). Snakes seem to be a successful group of animals, still alive and slitherin'.
      I tried to give it a relatively realistic patterning with colouration that might work on the autumnal flock I use these days.

      32mm base.
      Sculpted by Julie Guthrie

      Good evening gents and gentettes,
       
      So finally got another one finished this afternoon. I was working on him for a while now and got done painting him two nights ago, let him cure, got his base attached last night, and then this afternoon on my lunch break (working from home for the foreseeable future) got his grass stuck on and photos taken.
       
      So with this elf, I didn't want to just do him in either browns or greens, so went with yellows and oranges with some leathery colors instead.  I also did his bow thinking of more of an ivory bow, so off white. There were a few other things I could have done with him, but calling him done. This one is a classic Ral Partha Julie Guthrie figure from her range "All Things Dark and Dangerous", from back in the eighties.  Most of them you can still end up getting still from Iron Wind, so that is a plus. Anyways, here he is, hope you like him!

      Hello guys,
       
      It's been a while since I posted a mini, as I've been sick, been on a business trip, and just generally busy, but here is a figure I just completed last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from "All Things Dark and Dangerous" back in the eighties:
       

       
      Upon retrospect I'm wondering if I should have given her eyebrows, don't know if without looks very unnatural?
       
      In any case, here's the "original" set of figures, with the delightful ladies that came in the original blister pack:
       

       
      Hope you enjoy!
