Fungal Queen - 44050 (Picture heavy)


Recommended Posts

Lovely work, this magical fairytaily mood you created works perfectly on this model and base.

But, what are the true colours in it? There is a difference between each pic here, and to add to the confusion there's an additional photo in the contest thread with totally different scheme (blue-violet, not pinkish red as here).

That decorative plinth is amazing. Is that an underground lake and then a cavern below it? Just gorgeous. The OSL lighting is terrific, too. Did you use the crystals from the Underdark expansion in the base, or were those from something else?

I made a little pool that she is standing above. We used a router to carve a cave into the side. I imagined water from the pool seeping through the stone to form stalactites and stalagmites in the little cave. The crystals are the transparent purple Reaper crystals, I just painted them.

I played with different lighting for the photos with the dark background. Some are natural light and some are lit with a lamp that I have with pink cut glass globe so it casts a bit more of the pink light.

The colors used are black, nightshade purple, other shades of purple up to bright pinks and the pinks taken up to Breast Cancer Awareness pink. Then the cap and part of the cavern use blues and teals. The pinks and purples were glazed with clear purple and clear magenta. The blues with clear blue and turquoise ink.

Her skin is several of the Reaper skin tones, mainly golden but mixed with others. I highlighted and shaded using stippling to give her skin an interesting appearance.

The lighter background photo in the contest post shows pretty true to color. For atmosphere, since I envisioned her as queen of a magical underground kingdom, I used the black background which muted a lot of her colors but accentuated the pink. The ones lit with the pink light accentuated the pink paint even further

      There's a World beneath this one, you may not be aware of it, but it's there!
      Deep in the caverns of the Earth we can see Nanaari on her Zeek, where is she going?
      What is her purpose?
      Do we really want to find out?

      Good day everyone, I completed my Perils of the Underworld diorama. I changed the name simple because there is a trademark on the word Underdark. Here are the pictures, do not hesitate to leave any critiques as I would like to improve anything that does not look right. The building WIP can be found here and the painting WIP here. To realize this diorama, I used Reaper Miniatures model and MSP paint only.
       
      The whole idea of this project started with the gemstone the gnome is holding in her left hand. I converted 03082 Ingrid the female gnome sculpted by Derek Schubert as a svirfneblin prospector. (Svirfneblin is the name given to deep gnome in the Forgotten Realms lore). She is exploring the Underworld in search of precious minerals. She's riding her faithful familiar the 14453 hunting cat sculpted by Sandra Garrity. They are taken as prey by an ambushed 03602 stone lurker sculpted by Kevin Williams. There is also a 02018 bat from the familiar pack 1 hanging from its perch and several mushrooms I sculpted in green stuff to complete the scene.
       
      The mushroom I sculpted are all found in the Forgotten Realms lore, the blue ones are called nightlight fungus, the round ones on the ground at the back of the display are called timmask, the pink ones are glowcap mushroom and the ones growing on the roots are  ripplebark. It took me about 90 hours of work to do this diorama, not including the time I spent preparing the WIP. Enjoy!

      Xenoplanetary mining is a tricky business. Mining in general is dangerous, and unknown worlds are exactly that. So the dark spaces of an unexplored globe could contain anything in their dripping, lightless, clammy halls. Green Team is about to discover this.

      Meet Green Team. On what was another boring expedition, in both senses of the word, under the crust of Xipetotec Alpha.


      And then--a muted slicky, sticky noise, like a the sound of a wet carpet and a spoon stirring jam. There's life down here!


      Inquisitive life, with no fear of humanoids!


      Inquisitive, fearless, and *very large* life. Very...mucoid, too. Look out, there, cadet!
       
      More soft, clammy, rippling noises. We are Not Alone.


      And Excavation Specialist Torelli in particular is not alone. By the time he hears the hiss of digestive juices on his suit and feels the soft inexorable flesh enfolding him, it is already too late.


      Sometimes the Company just isn't paying a spacer enough to stick around! 


      After several hours of muted squelching and gurgling, once every scrap of organic matter and soluble minerals have been absorbed, the worms finally move away from the small heap of metal fragments and tooth enamel that was once Torelli.  And in the dark silence that follows the worms are again left, as they have been for ages, alone. Waiting. And hungry.

       
      I love these disgusting sculpts. Great for Underdark and spacefuture alike, they are horribly organic, all sphincters and flaps and folds. They will engulf an adventurer. It is a soft death, but not painless. Something about that eye makes them look less brainless than one might think.
