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!

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      Painted this for the Lost Mines of Phandelver module that I am running.  Venomfang will be reoccuring throughout their adventures. 
      I painted this faster than usual, but would not call it speed pained because it still took me about a month. I put a bit more into it than my usual speed paints, but a little less than others. It is always hard from me to take pics of larger models, probably should have taken this one outside, may have benefited from the background trees and grass more than most other models.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.
