Great job!  My only criticism would be that I think you tried to pack too much sea life into the resin.



I actuall had more, I got a little carried away there...I now have left overs for the next sea project.

Fantastic job! Love that tide-pool base. Amazing how many different skills you learn for this hobby, isn't it? 


One of the things I love about this hobby !

Thank you!

Awesome. And you knocked the resin pour out of the park. 



The UV Resin Gel is quite easy to work with.

For my next experiment ( soon) I have AK Interactive Water, will find out what I like the best.

That is so cool, and I really like the blues that you put into your komodo dragon!



I looked at many pics of real ones, turns out some have blues and yellows so I applied those.

Aww, thanks.  You did a great job.  The resin pour turned out really really good.  I really need to try that someday.  Thanks for bringing my baby to life!


You're welcome!

I love reptiles and animals and I love this sculpt.

To be honest I like animals to be realistic, I've seen some other Komodo Dragon Sculpts and they're all too bulky.


If you could ever sculpt two of these fighting, I would buy those immediately

Really wonderful work~!  Both the model and the base look great~!



The base was a first effort for something like this.

I will try to do more like these.

      Okay, I just joined the forums so I'll be posting my "backlog" of finished minis.  This is one I did for a contest earlier this year.

      I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out.  To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.   
      Here's the plate
      In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:

      I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.

      Awesome random encounter, paraphrased:
      DM describes a green, toad-like beastie.  It--
      Me: "Is that a GREEN SLAAD?"
      DM: "Well, roll a Knowledge: the Planes..."
      Me: "No, no, I mean does it look like THIS?" [reveals recently-painted Green Slaad]
      The Rogue: "Isn't this like a miniature painter's dream?  Having just the right mini for a completely random encounter?"

    • By GodOfCheese
      I'm painting a mini with a light source, and decided to rebase the beastie with some water effects, probably epoxy resin.  I'll probably try to make the water at least slightly rough, creating interest for the eye.  I woke up in a cold sweat this morning realizing that the light source should be reflected (or possibly just highlighted) in/on the water. 
      My initial thought was to:
      lightly (heh) color the bottom of the pool as if it were dry and lit by the light source pour and texture the water highlight the water by drybrushing from the light source out.  
      My concern about this is that if the viewer looks toward the light, the surfaces of any wavelets will be highlighted on the opposite side from the POV.  In other words, the viewer will see the undersides or backsides of any highlights through the translucent wavelets, and this might not look the way the viewer expects.
      Has anyone done this?  I looked around for a few examples but although there are plenty of doing wave effects (froth and foam), I haven't found any yet that look like translucent glare.
