Dance of Death Paint Schemes

I think I'm gonna go with gem color scheme:
- Garnet (my birthstone)
- Sapphire (Mr. Mouse's birthstone)


It'll be interesting to see if I can make their scales look like they've been cut from gems.


I'd be more than happy to provide you with reference pictures. If I don't have the stones myself I can pester people. Pretty sure I can ask the museum below my office to let me rummage through the collection for stuff to take pictures. And I can pester my groupmates (one just finished his PhD on sapphire and spinel).

Hello all! 


My DoD came in the mail yesterday! (Squee!) Managed to snag one from reaper since I didn't add it to KS... chose argent instead... anywho. 


I assembled (only dry fit) just for giggles even though I won't have time for more with con coming up soon! 


My thoughts are blue for the top one and a metallic (specific undecided) for the bottom one. But that might change. Especially after seeing others ideas. 


The mating ritual idea brings ideas too. So I suddenly finding myself wanting another DoD or two. 


Cheers all!

Alright everyone, what are people thinking for their paint schemes for Dance of Death?

I'll go first:

Personally, I am thinking of drawing inspiration from two of the Progenitor Wyrms in Eberron.  Basically a gold or some kind of light dragon of the stars vs a dark purple shadowy dragon of the deep. 


These two are sometimes referred to as the Dragon Above and the Dragon Below (while Eberron is the Dragon Between - the one that most everyone lives on). 








I like this color scheme. White and gold, with some black and purple-grey-brown in there. 


Have no idea what I'll be doing with mine yet.  It's still in the bag.

I was actually going for the courtship ritual variant. Haven't decided on colours, though. 

Having just finished reading the rain wilds books, one of mine will probably be blue/silver with eyespots on the wings, lol

the one Larry Elmore did for dragon lance was blue versus red (or maybe a white with blue shading).  These two seem to match that image.



Being that it's Dragonlance I think the one on the left is supposed to be 'silver', but this is still a cool picture.
