As you might have noticed form my Lost World project I love reptiles and I also use nature for reference.

Lizards, Snakes, Topical Fish and Birds provide many beautiful examples for painting minis.

Good call!

 

I love the waterfall idea!

Awsome project, good luck!

 

TIP: for a piece like this don't use the liquid water effects.

Use a paste like Vallejo Water Effects.

Love the waterfall. Going to steal that so hard. Eventually. 

 

Steal away! ::D: I vaguely remember starting a thread a long time ago full of ideas that I had but didn't have time for haha.

Do any of these parts look sufficiently mossy to y'all? I am requesting texture help - I know that the edges and placement of the moss will help sell it but I want to get the texture right first.

In other news, I'm done rescaling and gapfilling body! Yay!

I tried making the moss a little lumpier and softer. I'm not fully settled on it yet, but I suspect that it will read better once it's been painted and in the proper areas. I'll be spending a ton of time on the base over the next several weeks. Lots of little things to sculpt! I'm really excited about it. ::D:

After about 11 hours, I've finally finished gap filling and cleaning up! It was lots of little areas like this. If I did it right, you shouldn't be able to tell which scales got added....

It took another hour to prime him. His heads and wings have been lightly tacked on so I can get an overall view of him. He's also not attached to the base.

The next step is to ask friends for help before adding the white primer. Where do you think the light sources are? I'm thinking that I should do at least two different spots.

I've also gone around a few Ma'al threads and searched for lighting ideas there too.

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      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.

      I had to change the title since apparently "March of the Murlocs" is already a thing in the current game. And I was so proud of the name, too!
       
      My husband loves his gift (the biggest and bestest success!!!) but it would have been great if my painting for my ReaperCon entry wasn't so awful two years in a row.
       
      All the details, rambling love stories, and modding/creation details are in my WIP thread here!

      Hi all! Most of the Randomness thread folks noticed that this chatterbox wasn't around much last year. 2018 was spent working on my brain. I think I made a lot of progress so hopefully that means I get to spend more of 2019 working on my art!
       
      My last post from my previous sculpting thread:
       
      As always, I appreciate love and critiques, and I hope that by showing a little bit of the time and effort it takes it pursue sculpting, others will try without getting discouraged by the climb up!
       
      So let's get started!
