Beautiful - my favorite is the blind warrior, but the cloak on the elf archer is a close second. Wonderful use of the palette - wow

      Amazed that the arms glued on strong and perfectly with no help from putty. That has to be a first ever for me.

      Well, I did it.  this is the last of the Elmore dragons that Darksword Miniatures makes.  This miniature is based on a pencil sketch by Larry Elmore and is one of the tallest freestanding dragons I have in my collection.  He is also one of my favorite miniatures.  from the huge wingspan to the quirky happy/puzzled expression on his face, this dragon is just amazing.  He has also been sitting in his box waiting patiently for years because for years I thought he was a brown dragon which made him what I considered a real challenge to paint well.
       
      Some reading and thought later and he has found his stride as a bronze dragon.  It was also an excuse to break out some of my new color change paints on his wings to see what they look like over a broad expanse.  The answer, as you will see below is amazing to look at, very difficult to capture in pictures.  So anyway I thought I would let everyone see him.  I hope you like what you see!




      Here he is from the front with the color effect from the color change paints in the down position

      and here he is again with the color change in the up position.  the color flare is really pretty amazing in real life but I just cant seem to capture it well.

      I'm painting this up for the BBEG this weekend. Last night I tried the layering technique for black by using multiple thin layers of complementary colors. Someone posted the artist and demo on the Reaper fan page a couple of weeks back when someone asked about painting black. If anyone knows the artist or link, please let me know since I can't find it. I highly recommend it. While these pics don't show the various tones of colors, it looks like rich black with some depth vs going flat like some black paints do. I love the effect. However, I will say it doesn't work as well on something more curvy. I was also trying it on another mini for her top and she'd very curvaceous. It looked a little weird so I just repainted it.
       
      So that being said, I'd love some thoughts on what to do about the collar piece and gloves he has. Should I do the same black treatment or go with a different color? I think I'm going to do his pants in a gray so the focus is more on his armor. Thanks!

      he definitely looks like a worried advisor rather than a commanding wizard.

      Another of last months work, I wanted to try two things with this mini, first practice on some osl, but mainly wanted to see how far I could push the shadows on a white cloak, hoping for almost a pure black. But I failed miserably, when I had up to reapers 09137 Blackened Brown It just didn't feel/look right to me so this was the darkest I could get. I also did something weird for me as well painting the hair a weird color for kicks.
