This little guy has been in my stash box forever, I never could decide on a paint scheme. And then, a few weeks ago, it hit me:
There's an old North German fairy tale about a fisherman who catches a flounder. The flounder begs the fisherman to release him, so he does. When he comes home, he tells his wife and she complains that he failed to ask the fish for a reward.
So the fisherman returns to the sea and calls the flounder to ask for a little house as a reward, because his wife wants it:
"Manntje, Manntje, Timpe Te, Buttje, Butte, in de See, mine Fruu, de Ilsebill, will nich so as ick wohl will!"
(Little man, little, man, * I have no idea what timpe te means *, flounder, flounder, in the sea, my wife Sibyl doesn't want things the way I would like them")
The wife, however is never satisfied for long and she sends the poor fisherman back to the flounder again and again to wish for grander and grander things. When finally his wife wants to be the same as god himself, the flounder has enough, and the fisherman and his wife go back to being poor.
So here is the flounder, about to build the little house for the fisherman, or the farm, or the palace, or to make the fisherman's wife king, or even pope. Anyway, the flounder is not amused.
This was a really quick paint job for me. I made the water with UV-Resin and sculpted some waves with water effects gel. I still have to get the hang of painting the foam on the crests of the waves, but I think it's a bit better than my first attempt at waves.
Anyway, here's the flounder, enjoy!
Fishfolk Fisherman and Fishfolk Fishwife from Crooked Dice. The fisherman, in oilskins and sou'wester, is a perfect blend of the Gorton's mascot and his product. The bug-eyed fishwife with cleaver was a delight to paint, especially the Atlantic salmon.
A shot of some of the Waite Fish Packing Concern's employees, featuring some old friends from RatTrap and BlackCat:
The Real Housewives of Innsmouth (including a repurposed Bonnie, 50293, with improvements upon her previous appearance):
and one of just the fellas:
Golly gee willikers I love painting fishmen. Special credit also to the Dreadmere Fishing Boat, 44032, the perfect touch for the setting.
Here is another 3D printed mini.
She's from Artisan Guild from the Death Tide Jurakin Set.
This is the pin up - Telxia Tidal Beauty.
She's a mermaid so she's partially nude hence the links.
WIP here, she's part of my Beneath the Waves Project.
This is 3D file from Gloomykid.
It is called a Naga and comes in two versions one is a snake version ( the Naga) the other has fins and I decided to go for that one.
Part of my Beneath the Waves Project you can find here:
Ready to defend his realm against those pesky fishermen.
EDIT: forgot to mention, the Base is a 3D print from the Artisan Guild _ DeathTide Jurakin Set.
The larger cluster of barnacles I sculpted with procreate.
I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors! Do I get bonus points for that?
Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.
