Recommended Posts

He looks awesome, love the lava base!  I know how much work it is, mine took me 6 months.

Absolutely gorgeous!  Very much so love how that lava is bubbling over that one edge of the base too!

I'm dying to know how you did that lava. It looks amazing, and I was planning on incorporating some lava into my 2nd Ma'al when I get started on her...

 

I agree.  The bubbling and oozing were pulled off nicely.

The shading/highlighting on this is so good - the scales really pop!  I also love the lava spill on the base - such a neat touch.  Amazing job!

Really like the base you made - it perfectly compliments the dragon. Love the detail on the scales - beautiful!

Looks fantastic. Skimmed through your blog on the work of this. I see no picture or mention of an airbrush, which makes it that much more impressive.

I used a 2 part putty that a friend supplies to me from his work,  pressed it around the rocks and then painted. Probably the only secret is that I used glass beads for the bubbles and pressed the putty over them.

wow! 

hope you have a glass case to put that in 

 

Sadly, I painted for a friend of mine and only have these pics to remember it by.

There were times I was amazed with it and times I was so tired of looking at it. Weird feeling.

Thanks, no airbrush. Thought about buying one back when I was painting the gf9 demogorgon, but wasn't sure if it would slow me down or come out poorly from not ever using one before.

I don't own an airbrush either, and doubt I would tackle Ma'al without one, given his size. I don't even have a brush big enough to basecoat him. I can see why he took 11 months to complete.
