I decided to go outside the box on dragon colors.
@Sirithiliel was a great inspiration, but I don't want to steal her colors directly. hopefully this one will look as good.
So here are the colors
lots of false starts found a wing I liked but not a dragon scheme.
How about a google search on lizards?
Bother. nature beat me too it. well maybe ill modify it a little .... it does look a little sillier than I want.
Ill go lighter blue on the main body and dark & striped on the tail
So that's Red liner on the red area, and blue liner on the main body and tail.
that will give the face a less monotone coloring.
I want to really try and leave the liner visible between the scales.
Planning on getting the colors right first then adding thin black glaze to provide shading. I guess white in half steps for highlighting.
most color changes will be when the scale changes. I'll paint the wings first, as proof of concept.
Kind of a fun way to spend the day. the power went off while I was doing crayon drawings. I didn't notice.
I'm painting again after a looong absence.
The colour scheme was inspired by Australian Frilled-neck Lizards and Thorny Devils. Base was extended with an MDF circle, cork, stones, and green stuff. I used my airbrush to prime it all and lay down the base colours, then lots of hand-painting, washing and drybrushing.
In the Storm King's Thunder campaign I'm playing in we've had 2 encounters with an ancient blue dragon named Iymrith. I don't have a painted blue dragon... And my very pregnant DM isn't going to get one bought and painted before we need her, so...
Digging through my minis, I figured Narthrax was as close as I've got. It was going to be blue anyway (or dessert sands brown) so that was my top choice. I also thought about the wizkids dragons, but the FLGS only had the green, and I wasn't all that impressed with the sculpt. I'd rather drop $30 on another Narthrax if I'm gonna paint a brown one in the future.
Tonight I pulled her out, scrubbed her down, and started working on her base.
She could probably for on a smaller base, but with her wingspan, and the fact that she's an ancient dragon, I figure she deserves it.
and the cork will give her some extra height.
It helps her look even bigger as compared to Blightfang!
More to come!
So i painted up my narthrax using purple to green chameleon on the wings, clear pirple for the body with a metallic purple drybrush, shining mitheril for the eyes and teeth and a milkyway auto pigment mixed into acrylic medium for the horns and tongue. Unfortunately the chameleon paint effect doesn't show up in pics, but looks amazing in person.
After two months of work, he is done! I give you ... Narthrax the White.
If that's not enough for you, there are a hundred and forty eight more pictures in the WIP thread, documenting his development in excruciating detail.
On a side note, as I made the final adjustments and took the photos, I finished watching the climactic episode of Critical Role. And it was awesome.
