I like the freehand!

 

Dragon/Demon/Bull it doesn't matter, it looks great!

And I like the firm look she has, nobody is going to mess with this girl!

Thanks Glitterwolf, even though I have huge doubts about my freehand.  Those nostrils almost look to me like two olives!

Hmm, Come to think of it, if you look at it upside down it kinda looks like a monstrous insect and the nostrils become eyes.

Anyway, I like it!

Insect came to mind as well for me, but certainly wasn’t the intention. Oh well, at least it’s not just a plain orange shield!

Looks great. What is your Chainmail and Flesh recipe?

Thanks!

 

I typically start with X color and then go do darker washes, and then highlights afterwards up to white.

 

If I recall for this flesh it was started as Tanned Highlight, and then from there went down:

Tanned skin

Tanned shadow

Dark highlights

Dark Skin

Dark Elf Skin

Dark elf shadow

walnut brown

 

and then from tanned highlights going up, did

fair skin

fair highlights

pure white

 

With the chainmail and metal in general the base color was ashen blue and then went down:

soft blue

dark elf skin

dark shadow

dark elf shadow

pure black

 

and from ashen blue, went highlighting:

cloud grey

rainy grey

misty grey

ghost white

pure white

 

Hope that's helpful!

Great job as always! Love the face and especially the freehand at the shield.

I kind of wonder about my freehand, but thank you very much in any case!

Great paintjob on a cool old figure! The freehand design on her shield looks good, IMO.:winkthumbs:

Thank you Chaoswolf! Still not quite sure what it’s supposed to be!

      Hello all,
       
      just finished this one up, a Ral Partha Children of the Night Megalosaurus. I told myself I was going to stay away from greens and grey, which is of course what this one ended up being.  I threw some pink highlights into his mouth and throat, which started making me think a bit about the Joker.  
       
      This guys is a dinosaur so he's a pretty hefty piece of metal.  I should probably photograph some day a normal sized person to give a comparison. He's on an oval base, no idea how big it's supposed to be. 
       
      Anyway, hope you like!

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      two more figures from classic Rat Partha, these two are currently called "Beggars" but used to be part of a Children of the Night set that came with a seated old holy voodoo gentleman I painted recently.  Here's the original set:
       

       
      and here are the two beggars:
       

       
      and here is the front of the female beggar, linked for an exposed female mammal part dangling about:
       
      Female Beggar, beware mammal parts!!
       
      I didn't originally mean to give the male beggar a black eye, but his eye was actually just a small little slit, and I was going to leave it as a dark link. So I did the line, then did the black eye, but after that, because I just couldn't resist, I tried to put white over the slit, and even though the white slit kind of took over and made it big enough for an eyeball to go there too, I think it came out okay.
       
      The two figures were pretty simple and they are rather small, being some nice old Dennis Mize 25mm.  If I remember to, I'll grab the quarter comparison shot one of these days.
       
      and just in case you want to see the whole set, I'm sticking the little old drummer voodoo priest here as well:
       

       
      to show the complete set!
       
      So hope you enjoy, thanks for having a look!

      Hello guys and gals,
       
      so I've been wanting to paint some dinosaurs for a while, so here is my first official one, a ceratosaurus, sculpted by Dennis Mize in the early eighties for his Ral Partha range Children of the Night.
       
      As always, the hardest part was to come up with a color scheme as I keep thinking "dinosaurs - green or grey" and don't really want to fall in to that trap at all. I've got more of them so I want to try different color schemes and patterns, maybe some stripes and spots and what not.
       

       
      This is one of the bigger ones I have. He's on a oval base probably for 50mm figures I'm guessing?  Can't actually remember where I found the base, but glad I had it sitting around.
       
      As I look at Mize's figures from this period and with all his dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, I wish he would have made some cavemen as well.  He did some primitive-looking figures later with his Beastmasters, but I would have really liked just some shaggy-haired guys and gals to accompany all these beasts.
