Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set.
Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
Backdrop is a black cardstock.
This is it World Wide Miniatures Day 2021 is here, @maxstyles ways. I'll post my progress here over the weekend. Feel free to join me and post your WIP . Just for the fun of it.
I cleaned and prepared these models during the week to be ready today. It's gonna be an Ogre weekend. Ready, set, paint!
Oh, man! This one I'm really happy with. I watched yet another video where someone did a griffon nearly all dry brushed and thought since I had problems doing wings a while back, I could try it. I did and am shocked with the results!
* Using a tri-color system to lighten things up strategically picking out colors ahead and setting them aside.
* Sticking to a plan helped address speed and order of operations.
* Using new dry brush make-up brush has SIGNIFICANTLY increased my ability with the method. I'd sucked at dry brushing - could be due to either pressure or paint application, but either way it worked awesome this time.
* No washes.
* No inks.
* Really only used a 2nd brush to hit the highlights on beak, eyes, and claws.
* Finally got to utilize a reference book I snagged for cheap at B&N for birds.
* @Darcstaar I also utilized your method for claws after you mentioned it. I LOVE IT! Thank you for the combo.
* I somewhat botched one of the eyes - the left. It's not perfectly centered in the yellow circle. I was also having a hard time thinking how far I should push the yellow. Not super noticiable, but I know it's there.
* White/fur/feather area near the head feels a little off, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I am still happy with the results, but something in that transition seems off.
* The fur on the lion body was originally higher volume in cream color, but I dialed it back. I think a much lighter color would do it good to help bring some brighter contrast in, but I chickened out before touching it up because I liked the work as it was. Wimped out.
* the bottom of the body is still darkly shaded due to how the dry brushing worked out, but I think it's still okay? Ish.
* I'm also panicked about doing the base because this easily just became one of my favorite pieces. I've got the basing materials setting up right now and drying -so I hope in the next few hours I get to post this in completed works and it looks rad!
Always open to feedback and love hearing it. As I mentioned, I use the comments to the fullest to make the most of my next one.
