Stone/earth dragon

Recommended Posts

Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one.  I’ve shoes away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish...:ph34r: ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon.  
 

In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon...  oops!

I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown).  I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green.  
 

For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown.

Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base.  I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it.  
 

in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. 
 

Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend.  That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! 
 

Thanks for looking.

Very nice!

I need to order some clear resin....

Who's the creator for that dragon?

 

Artisan Guild.  It was their 3 month freebie on Patreon but it is available for sale on Myminifactory. 

 

If you look in the 3d printing thread, I had a LOT of issues with the basic elegoo green resin early on. I now the plain clear with ABS-like coloured clear ones and have had no issues as yet.
