Great job. What do you think of their miniature line (eg. mold lines and primer)?

I'm not overly hip to these things tbh, but I like what I've seen. Love the designs and price point. I've had their displacer beast and mimics up close and in hand, and they're pretty clean and ready to go. This is the first I've painted, and I can say that I wasn't thrilled with how the primer held the paint. I'd come back behind the base coat to dry-brush, and it'd chip that previous coat. May've just not given it enough time to dry, but I was working at my normal pace and all. So I'unno--I'm a lousy/lazy/weird painter so probably just a "me" problem.

      Finished and based him! 
      @DragonWyrm great, great call on using the matte medium on the translucent to get acrylic to adhere and still keep its transparency!  I can't believe it worked as well as it did. You're a genius. 
       
      Ended up using the matte medium, then green ink, then leveled up with yellow dry brush, then did a white touch up to show motion.  Came out great! 
       
      Thank you for the tip.  Genius!

      While waiting for the  Dark Depths expansion from Bones 5, I got a little into the nautical theme. After being some example of the shark from the WizKids deep cuts line. While gap filling with green stuff, I decided that just painting the shark would be boring. So I sculpted a really basic tail and magnetised it. Sure the tail is really basic and I am missing a couple of the smaller fins, but it does work for its intended purpose. 
       
      If I ever decide to return to this project, I may make a transparent base that would hold the shark off the ground. Allowing it to double as either a jumping shark or a swimming one.

      Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.

      Time to paint a new Dragon.  and whats a dragon without a WIP? 
      This will be My second largest painted Dragon,  behind only DDS2.  It will slip to 3rd when I get around to painting the KDM Dragon King, that boy is a Chonk.  
      My goal is two months - ie end of the year.  otherwise I will have only finished one dragon this year,  when normally I paint 3. 
       
      but white is so boring.  
      lets see what references I can find to spice it up. 
       
      Ooooh Mamma ! 

       
      so to translate this into the figure ... 
      mint/pastel green tint on scales, pink in the creases. 
      the lizard above seems to have green around some scales and pink around others.  im not really sure how to make that work. 
       
      time for some rough drafts.
       
      Rule of thirds - all white surfaces should be 1/3 or less other colors,  this way it should still read as white scales. 
      It could easily overwhelm the dragon, and lose the white designation . (ie DO NOT replicate the too green small lizard on the top.) 
      I don't need back legs on my sketch, patterns will be identical to the front legs. 
      Should I splatter with yellow?  - it is either random color shift on scales or urine stains.  
       
      Paint Colors: 
      Entrail Pink mixed with white for the creases  (red liner deepest shadow) 
      Green sky (vallejo) for the mint green, also 50/50 white.  (green liner for darkest shadows)
      Linen white as a base - Pure white for highlights. 
      Snow shadow (blue/white)   for shadows on the scales.
      The wings should be darker on above than below, and more pink ,  while the upper surface will be more green.  
       
      Basing -
      Simple Snow Base.    The Dragon needs to be sturdy as it will join the collection that my Mini-Spawn plays with.    It comes with a transparent pole, and attachment points to the base. 
      No  need to reinvent the wheel. 
       


       
       
      I think I need to sleep on this before moving past the clean-up stage.
