She is a BEAUTY although a decidedly creepy one. Your brushwork & color selection are OUTSTANDINGVERY WELL DONE!

Awesome!

And the backdrop works great for her!

Love the setting!

Thanks! I've just been waiting to use that backdrop! Much appreciated--and I believe I got the idea from you.

Many thanks! She really is a great sculpt, with a haughty attitude befitting a Chosen of the Snake God. I'm always happy for an excuse to use oranges and yellows!

Beautifully done, and I love that orange belly!

Thank you! Nature has come up with most of the best color schemes already.

That's a really cool paint scheme. :winkthumbs:

Thank you! I like it too, though now I'm thinking of blending the interface between the blue-gray and the black border of the underbelly--a black shading into dark blue and thence into the dorsal color might be nice.

Beautiful - wow your painting just keeps getting better and better - love the contrast of belly and back of the snake body and very nice smooth skin tones!

Thank you!! It's all due to prolonged exposure to reading/seeing/envying the amazing work I see on this forum. So many great examples of artistry to inspire one! The non-snake skin is DecoArt Milk Chocolate with repeated applications of AP Flesh Wash and Red Tone. The snake skin got a good dose of 'Ardcoat for that serpentine gloss.

      The Desert is a dangerous place, should one travel far enough, avoiding the Sand Worms, the Giant Scorpions and the Undead that roam there, one might find the ancient civilization of Stygia.
      Be afraid, very afraid, this place is not ruled by Men, be warned when you see the first signs of Snake statues and other signs of worship of Apophis!
      The first people you meet might look human, but on closer inspection you'll notice the strange eyes, the forked tongue and sometimes the scaled skin.
      When reaching the Capitol it will be too late.
      The Serpents and Snakepeople of Stygia will either devour you or enslave you.
      RUN!
       
      I give you Queen Sthenaria the Evil ruler of Stygia.

      The Froghemoth first appeared as part of an extraterrestrial biome in "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" if memory serves, so a spacefuture setting is, if anything, returning it to its roots. Twisted, coiling, poisonous roots, in the fungal swamps of a jungle hellworld such as Retro-Venus!
      I went for an unwholesome, etiolated color scheme--which blends in pretty well with the rest of the terrain.
       
      More angles: 
       

      This is a big miniature! Here it is towering over some tentacle-faced Cult Beasts from Midlam. They are about hound-sized in scale. The deep scars and tatters on the throat pouch indicate some sort of scarring from combat with others of its species, as rutting sea lions do.


      This is a beast too much even for the Beastmasters of the Venerian Amazons to handle alone!


      While we're at it, here's another view of the Cultist Beasts

      And a Venerian menagerie: 


      I plan on getting Mudgullet and making a mate for this one at some point.

      Hi all!  With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.

      A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another.  I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.
       

       
      More Below the Spoiler:
       
      It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between.  I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time.  I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago.  My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting.  Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures.  My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.

      I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings.  And these guys will be looking forward as well.  And backwards.  And sideways.  Always watching.
       
      How have you improved this year?

      Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal!

      "Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought."

      "You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?"

      "Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings."

      "God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come."

      "Mercifully, we have one of our best men on the scene. God willing he can contain the beast until the rest of the team arrives."


      Father Sweeny, again from Artizan's 'Thrilling Tales' line, had better be a man of strong faith and iron will.

      Hold the line...

      Tried to paint the Griffon to look like Buckbeak (a hippogriff I could not locate) for a friend’s HP diorama.
