My niece has her birthday in a week or so. We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her. I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
Here is the finished piece. The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got. I thought the upper wings were gorgeous
Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook? Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results. I especially want to work on some tattoo effects. I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well. In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
And she got the mini today and loved it!
So this is my first posting since we got a new computer, so hopefully I can get the images figured out and in the correct size, et cetera.
This one is my third of my swarthy skinned triad of Rap Partha figures sculpted by Dennis Mize. This is a Sorceress with Wand, another old figure probably from around 1979 from Dennis Mize's Children of the Night series.
I had lots of "parts" to this little lady and I kept adding colors so hopefully she's not overly colorful. The last thing I painted was the crystal on her wand, and couldn't figure out what color to use. Eventually ended dup with reddish, magma'y or something similar.
And with these old smaller 25 mm figures, I think I'm going to start getting into the habit of having a comparison figure, with the infamous US quarter I keep on my desk:
So anyhow, that's the figure of the day for me, will be getting back to the old painting board to hatch up some more concoctions of color soon!
Enjoy and Happy Father's Day to all you groovy guys lucky enough to procreate!
So here is a small little mini that was sculpted way back in 1979, making the sculpt already 40 year old. It was sculpted by Dennis Size in the old Partha Days and belonged to a game that Partha had produced called the Witch's Cauldron, which pitted adventurers against monsters. I've never actually played the game some miniatures that I've painted actually came from this game. So here is the witch, to whom the cauldron belonged. She is a small little figure and crouched down to make her even smaller. The white hair has actually got some shades and washes in it, but you can't always see them in these photos. Anyhow, enjoy:
I'm reasonably pleased with her. I was kind of going for Drow but not Drow. I really like the "Dark Elf" triad for the Drow, but I've seen artwork that shows Drow skin almost more like dark, natural tones, so wanted to give a try for that, plus I'm also painting two other figures with the same skin tones that just flat out have a more African vibe.
And here's another one I did at the same time as my little witch.
Also a really small figure, seated, and 25mm, sculpted too in 1979, part of Deniss Mize's series "Children of the Night". This little gentleman was originally in set called the "Voodoo Man Set", where he was a little voodoo witch doctor I think, and he had two voodoo zombies with him.
The biggest problem with this guy was his eyes. He is so incredibly small that after I painted the whites of his eyes, I couldn't get an actual dot in there, so I ended up painting the whole eyeball blue. Not exactly what I wanted, but the eyes were also sculpted in such a way that they were very defined and you really couldn't get away with painting over them and still have them look okay. So not too sure about how that came out but otherwise, not too disappointed. I didn't really do much with the base, just glued him on, added some green stuff and painted over it.
And to give you guys an idea about this fellow's size (or lack thereof) a comparison shot with a quarter:
With him and his little buddy the witch. They got to know each other pretty well whilst sitting on my desk for a week.
If your adventurers ever see Fimbul Frostbite they'll definetely feel the winter coming. The mighty white dragon dracolich rules its frozen wastes with a (rotten) sharp claw and twisted magic!
This is my rendition to the "zombie dragon" from Reaper Bones IV. Decided for a cold palette to take advantage from the link between death and ice that Game of Thrones so wisely stablished over eight seasons till its apotheosic... ehm. Well, till its peculiar end.
If anyone wants to visit my insta gallery I'll be honored ^^ its @albertnyarla
