My quest to complete all of my Bones Kickstarter minis continues. Here we have "Fly Demon" -- pretty spry for a fly guy.  I've done the base colors, most of the highlighting, and now I need to do something more with these giant yellow eyes.  Suggestions?





On photo review, I'll go clean up the veins in the wing a bit more.  I am considering adding a metallic glaze to the chitin and the wings.

The eyes, depending on your skills ( it's a small mini) you could paint very thing black lines to create a grid.

Or go demon eye, leave the yellow in the middle, paint the rest a dark orange, then a little red in the corners, in the middle a white and then a black slit pupil.

Looking good!


For the eyes I would suggest make the base colour a darker yellow or orange then paint yellow dots all over it to represent compound eyes (in a hexagonal "grid" pattern rather than a square one) making sure each yellow dot has a "surround" of the base colour showing.

      Painted up the Rats from Bones 2 at the end of October, beginning of November so I'm posting them as a group! Rebased them on various bases I had gotten from ReaperCon over the years and at least one is a Stones base I got from Frontline Games recently from an online purchase. 
      I wanted the Giant Wererat to look like some kind of undead abomination and my OSL painting skills can always use lots of practice 
      I tried making the Assassin's coat look like it was really grimy/dirty to juxtapose the gleaming weapon he uses for his work. 
      The Berserker was asking for a warpaint mask...
      Not sure if I pulled off the gemstones on the Stalkers bracelet; they're REALLY small.

      the first figure I started after alfanso's NMM workshop 
      The NMM just looked dull so I decided on full Earth and sky reflective armor.
      then realized that metal in shadow is less reflective, and turned half barck to regular NMM. 
      not quite satisfied with the sword it needs better blending now that I look at the detailed pictures. yes i will go back and fix it,.

      This cloak was crying out for freehand.  
      But I had had some others recently that just failed.  Time to put the big boy pants on again. 
      the fact that I was sitting next to clever crow at paint club may have been a factor.

      I need to keep rolling the bones, so here are two paints from this weekend.  I'm not sure if they are actually speedpaints, as I lingered over the NNM a little on the centaur.  The rogue was less than 2 hours. the centaur less than 3.  going for tabletop quality.

      A friend who had not painted anything in a while came to visit for a week.   While the wives an kids were off entertaining themselves, I offered a mini from the bones 2 core grab-bag to try his hand.  He picked one that reminded him of the Old D&D cartoon, and got as far as base-coating.
      His paints had long since dried out, so he left it here.  As I "Must Paint All the Things!"   I finished it up, the shield came out as one of my best freehand designs.  I also took an indirect suggestion from a poster in the paint my bones facebook group, and added another highlight to the shield.
