Speedpaint: Bones Male Lion (77341)

Recommended Posts

Well done, looks fine.

 

 

Basing him would be a small step

I painted this guy for my Desert Project ( Shifting Sands) put him up a cavalry base and added some Vallejo Desert Sand paste around the integral base, done!

Or just use a cavalry base, apply pva and then flock.

This turned out really nicely especially thinking you painted him so quickly. What was your base color for the lion fur?

 

Thanks! I have a limited number of paints at the moment, so I had to mix the base colour. It was a mix of Reaper's Ogre Skin, Goblin Skin, and a couple of different tans/creams from Army Painter. I did a light brown wash over that to pick out the texture in the fur and then kept adding more and more light cream to the base colour for progressively lighter dry brushes. I did a little supplementary shading with Goblin Skin and an Orangey-Brown from Army Painter, and some more highlights after that, but that's the gist of it.

Sadly, I went back and did some touch-ups and wound up ruining him, so into the simple green he went. I did a repaint and took a little longer this time (maybe 4 hours start to finish). Here are the results:

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      Hi folks!
       
      Today I started painting #03836 "Jakob Janssen, Monk" for our friend Jakob. Sending him some good vibes during this time and excited to finish this and ship it his way! I started with skintones and I'm currently working on painting him with a big ol' George Clooney smile  
       
      I want to finalize my color scheme but I'm really struggling! Many great painters have already posted photos of their version of this mini and I want to do something different than what's already been done. Here are the three I'm considering:
       
      The traditional Shaolin monk color scheme Iron Fist (Marvel) color scheme? (green & yellow) Halfling Monk (Pathfinder) color scheme? (green, red/orange, yellow with freehand insanity) Others??  
      HALP! The more options I research, the less decisive I get. Going to check back in tonight to see what folks think since I'll need to decide before my livestream tomorrow morning. At the end of the day, no matter what color scheme I choose, I'll do my absolute best to make sure it's something that will hopefully bring @JakobJanssen some creative joy   I'll check back in soon. Thanks in advance for your thoughts & suggestions!!
