Talae's Carrion Worm WIP

Recommended Posts

This is as much an attempt at learning more about my airbrush as it is about painting a Carrion Worm mini.


This mini has been painted using almost solely the Liquitex Inks (so far).


Primed and than hit with a couple of coats of a dark green.



Then I pulled out some brighter colors.



Zenithal spray of just the brighter green.



Switched to a brush and started to add some white to the green. 



Finished that and then went another round of highlights to bump it even brighter.



Added some white to the eyes (not sure if I will keep them as is or try a purple instead). Also picked out the teeth with white, but was really just messing around since I will be in the way of this for the mouth and gums.



What do you think overall of the roughed in color scheme?


Colors so far:

More progress (note that the teeth are a placeholder color while I try and decide which color to make them):

That pink-purple with the green is excellent!

Thanks! I used the PaintRack app to help pick it out.

I just started using that app a few weeks ago. I didn't know you could use it to help do the actual color scheme picking. (just been using it for cataloging which paints I use on a figure)

Dirt and Rocks got some time this morning. I am tempted to leave the green parts on the closest rocks.


Not sure how I feel about the dirt with only Volcano Brown.

Some more dirt work:





I haven't decided if I am done with that or will hit it with another round of highlights. Then that only leaves the teeth and the skulls.

Weird how the last groups of pics came through upside down. 


I worked through the rest of the one triad I was using. I might be able to call this one done enough for the game tomorrow:

      These were a couple recent projects, so happy with how they came out, can’t wait til they make it to the table...I particularly like the folds on the worm.

      Here is another semi WIP thread for another Bones 3 model. My youngest son had painted him in a nice coat of ultramarine blue and had left him. I then have the fun task of finishing it  off to some reasonable level. 
      So so after a couple of coats green and some dry brushing I got to this stage. 

      I am actually really happy how this turned out. I am not sure I would have attempted the blue under the green, but it seems to work well. Anyway onto the base, didn't realise how much detail it had.  
      As always comments welcome.

        After seeing some of these painted with teeth, I decided to try a tentacled approach...

      The next set out of Bones 3, various monsters!

      The Carrion Worm really grew on me!

      The Temple Dragon is really cool.  I hadn't even realized until I was inking it that the base was a statue of a robed woman:


      The Manticore, who I was specifically hoping for before they announced it during the campaign.  It's a classic monster I didn't have a mini of!

      Lastly, the Giant Cobra.  Kind of rushed this one along...he also appears to hide from the camera focus.
