Two different versions of the Bones Large Earth Elemental, 77185

Recommended Posts

Wow!  I prefer the second one but they're both great.  Those gems are stunning and I love that you took the time to make each stone a unique colour instead of all gray.

They do look like two different minis this way!

I love both, the lava effect is very cool, the rock version is great with all those different colours.

I can't decide which one is my favorite.

 

They both ROCK!

I love both of them, but the crystalline one JUST edges it in terms of awesomeness. I especially like the amethyst :winkthumbs:

Great comparison and well done. I absolutely love the look of the rock one - all those subtle colors, the beautifully done crystals and the worked in dirt look - wow

I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. 

 

It wasn't this guy was it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7HvSOREv0M&t=663s

 

Because I saw your golem and was immediately reminded of this video.  I actually only bookmarked it because I wanted to try something similar once I had found a suitable model (It seems I just needed a Reaper Earth Elemental lol).   Anyway really good job, especially with the second one, varying the colours of the individual rocks worked really well, I wouldn't have even have considered that as an option, my inclination would have been to paint all the stone the same colour.  I'll be book marking this one for future reference.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the biggest small dragon I ever painted. 03651 Storm Dragon Hatchling sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      This is the metal version of the model, it is mounted on a 74033, 40mm round base. The final highlight on the upper part of the wings is 09294 Alien Goo and 09408 Candlelight Yellow.

      Hello everyone, the madness goes on. On todays menu we have 44105, Giant Maggots. These Bones Black models were sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      I did a 09282, maggot white and a 09039, pure white glazing on them to give them a transparent and organic aspect.

      Coincidentally, I had this figure very nearly done two days ago when the sad news of Diana Rigg’s passing was made public.
       
      It always was a tribute to her incandescent portrayal of Emma Peel in the old British TV show “The Avengers”, but now it’s a memorial as well. Requiescas in pacem, Ms. Rigg.
       
      The figure is “Pandora King (Classic)” from Crooked Dice miniatures. Crooked Dice has a minis game based on cult TV and they’ve produced a lot of different figures suitable for that sort of storytelling.

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.
