Nice!  I especially like the vivid corn-husk-green gradient to the wing membranes.  

 Thanks very much!  I hadn't thought about it that way (the gradient).  But now that you mention it...yeah! Yeah it does kinda look like a corn-husk!

Amazing!

 

Love the greens and the transitions on the wings!

 

Thanks Glitterwolf! I had actually meant to go back and make the gradients a little smoother, but in the end, forgot completely about it.  Ah well, another finished mini, another learning experience! ::D:

Something about this paint job didn't feel quite right to me.  It took several moments of staring at it to figure it out:

 

In the fins along his spine, you've put the dark, cool greens closer to the body, and the blended towards bright yellows at the edge. That makes sense: the flesh would get thinner and allow more light to pass through it the closer you got to the edge.  But then, on the wings, you've reversed it: bright yellows near the bone, darker colors towards the edges.  It's a small thing, but my eye didn't want to resolve the figure properly.  The two opposing gradations fight with one another to a certain degree.

 

It's still a striking figure.  And probably most people won't notice.  Just something to think about for future!

:lol: Thanks!  For my part, I just see them as different parts of its body.  Indeed, the color on the back of the dragons wings is completely different. Sorry if that bugs you!

      So, here I am again, starting another WIP; I'm hoping I actually finish this one. 
       
      Anyway, I have a need in some upcoming games for a colossal red dragon as a lieutenant to the BBEG.  I'm expecting this to be a reoccurring character, so I want a decent paint job on it. That said, I am not aiming for much more that table-top quality here, and will be using every speed painting technique in my toolbox to crank this one out, hopefully before the next game in mid November.
       
      I am also going to use it to christen my new Patriot airbrush and airbrush booth.  Last night, I primed the whole model in Brown Liner.  It took about 3/4 of a bottle, and I didn't have too much over spray.  This is a big model.
       
      As I have said in the past, I like trying something new with every project; this one it is the use of an air brush.  I want to use this model to develop control and precision both with my Patriot and Sotar brushes.  Prior to this, I really haven't attempted much more than priming with an airbrush.
       

       
       
      Here's a picture of him in my spray booth.
       

       
      Have a great day!

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.

      I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals.  It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes.  I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint.
      Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast.  C&C welcome.
