Nolzur's Treant, autumn leaves edition

Recommended Posts

Having just finished him, it’s a delight to see this take. I love the autumn colors. Reminds me of Stranger Things and trick-or-treating. He’d look great next to a pumpkin knight.

 

Great job blending the foliage in. The dark walnut feel is just perfect.

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad y'all like him (his bark is worse than his bite.)

Oooo, you are 100% correct on the pumpkin knight! I'll add that to the wishlist. 
And "Stranger-Things"-worthy is high praise indeed, especially from someone who knows both trees and spookiness!

 Very nicely done. Quite liking your execution of the fall theme.

 

Its funny. This is the third finished version of this particular mini I’ve seen posted here over the past week or so, and yet each one is so different from each other... Lots of very imaginative people on these forums.

Need to get some saprolings now.  I have several spooky trees I've been meaning to paint for a graveyard scene.

Great! Love how you decorated him with all this plants and leaves and such. Painting looks very good too. All in all a fantastic job!

      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.

      Finished and based him! 
      @DragonWyrm great, great call on using the matte medium on the translucent to get acrylic to adhere and still keep its transparency!  I can't believe it worked as well as it did. You're a genius. 
       
      Ended up using the matte medium, then green ink, then leveled up with yellow dry brush, then did a white touch up to show motion.  Came out great! 
       
      Thank you for the tip.  Genius!

      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?

      While waiting for the  Dark Depths expansion from Bones 5, I got a little into the nautical theme. After being some example of the shark from the WizKids deep cuts line. While gap filling with green stuff, I decided that just painting the shark would be boring. So I sculpted a really basic tail and magnetised it. Sure the tail is really basic and I am missing a couple of the smaller fins, but it does work for its intended purpose. 
       
      If I ever decide to return to this project, I may make a transparent base that would hold the shark off the ground. Allowing it to double as either a jumping shark or a swimming one.

      Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.
