A pair of Bones bears (or the bear Bones, if you like)
I tried to paint these from pictures of real-life grizzly bears. Every time I paint an animal it ends up with a chaotic riot of washes and highlights in different colours until it looks enough like the source images to satisfy me. I doubt if I could paint another one and get the same colour! The coat of the Dire bear is much coarser, which really shows in the photo (like the fine moulding line on the Cave Bear's face) but is less bothersome in more natural light.
I painted these as companions to my Stone Giant tribe, and you can see the frankly ridiculous diorama I built over here...
Stone Giant Tribe
It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here.
I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back. TMM was used on the metal.
44082 Cave Bear (#624)
The cave bear lived from the Pleistocene era (That's the Ice Ages to us normal folks) which lasted from 2.580.000 years ago to about 11.700 years ago. However, it seems to have gone extinct about 24.000 years ago. Which certainly is contemporary with modern humans.
Them cave bears must have been delicious. And the shaggy furs kept us warm in those cold, cold caves.
