He looks fantastic! I love the way you got that glistening look on his scales.

 

Thanks @KruleBear and @Kuroneko!

 

the glistening scales are the wax highlight medium.  Grenadier made something called Dragon scales for TSR many, many decades ago and i still have my gold but i gave up hope of finding any more.  And then i came across a set of 24 colors (the dragon scales had 6) while i was looking for Badgers 3D printing primer (I found it too) so i ordered the lot and now i get to play with them again.  They take a really light touch or they will just bury the miniature in shiny instead of creating a highlight and they can wipeout definition with one hard swipe.  Paint also doesn't like to stick to the stuff either so its hard to hide mistakes but I do love the effect when it works!

I love it, beautiful work. These old Grenadier Dragons are very cool. I also own a copy of that dragon and you did an inspiring work on it. I will now need to paint mine.

Please do!  It makes me happy to see these coming out into the light again.  They are some of my favorite sculpst

 

BTW:  did Les Chocolats Favoris  survive the quarantine?  It was one of my favorite reasons to visit our plant in St Romuald.

Ah! ::D: You have a sweet tooth. Don't know if their stores are still open. However, I know they sale their products in groceries. They even have an Online shop, unfortunately I don't think they ship to the US.

Yea, I do.  their shell chocolate is pretty fun to eat and fun to play with at home (I brought some dark chocolate coating to play with at home the last time I was up there)

What a wonderful job on this great sculpt - I love this dragon and this paintjob is a perfect, classic take - wonderful inkyness with shading!

 

Thank you!  I love these sculpts and the waxes allow for a lot of the darker colors to shine (in this case, literally! ::D:)  The strangest part is that the dragon is painted in black but the shadows are done with purple shadow which somehow is darker than the black paint!
