Behir 77492 - A Lindwurm approach

Recommended Posts

For a moment I thought you had drawn the dragon as well there.

So it's a great background for it!

 

Hmm I did a Ki'rinn a while ago in red/purple and enhanced he look with metals in red/purple..and a touch of silver.

Just a few scales here and there with a reddish metal could give him that supernatural look.

That background looks awesome with it!

Thank you, I thought it would match the painterly style quite well.

Good idea,  I have a variety of gloss and metallic paints, even in purple. I will consider it, but assume it needs to be use sparingly, as you indicated. Great miniature by the way, the otherworldly feeling definitely comes across.

Yes, just in a few places small patches of scales in metallic.

I did it with a green asian dragon and another Ki'rinn.

On green I use gold and green metals.

Last night's focus was on the eyes. I went for a yellow halo around a central slit, framed by red. Gloss varnish really helped to add that lustre and wickedness.

Those eyes are fantastic!

 

Much obliged. I really like how they came out. I will keep it in mind for the wyvern on my to paint list.

Loving the color choices and the way it’s coming along!

 

Thank you. All a bit experimental, but since I use a wet pallette I go more free form and work colours in different areas.

 

I started work on the claws and teeth. The horns got some texture and the exoskeleton as well. Purple shades were a good choice. I may go back in and smooth out some of the blends, but I also kinda like some of the rougher textures on the bony belly. Overall coming along nicely. I thought I include a pic of the pallette for those interested in the range of colours used.

Almost finished with the Behir. Increased contrast of the legs and gave fangs and claws some texture. I want to put a bit more work into the back sail, maybe adding a bit more purple.

 

Otherwise the base will be a tad more involved with this one.

Thank you. I decided to cut the base off (yes, after the painting not the best idea),so that I have more flexibility in terms of scenic  staging. I want him perched at a shallow forest stream. Let's see how it goes.

Got some work on the base done and attempting to depict dry mud. The mud will need some shading, to have it look wet in some areas, like closer to the ground. The idea is that the Behir dozed at the river shore and got startled, so water effect will be added in front of him, too.

      I was working on this Behir miniature since April 21st. Quite some time, but with a toddler in the house and other hobbies I only managed a few hours every other day. 
       
      The project started simple enough, but I had some issue to overcome and learned a few new techniques: UV resin as water effect, making tall grass out of straw, painting a lizard eye, painting fairly vibrant red and making a beech tree.
       
      If you are interested in the full story there is a WIP thread, too.
       
      All in all I am pleased with the outcome, but still need to improve vibrancy and contrast further. The blends on the scales could be smoother, too.
       
      C&C very welcome.

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.
