Wow, this is a truly alien piece! The frosty jungle base, the coppery stag-worm-insect thingy. Absolutely love it!

 

What colours did you use for the worm?

 

Thank you!

 

I primed Vallejo Brush on White.

Then Put black spots on top with Scale 75 Black Metal. ( metallics)

Painted Scale 75 Ruby Alchemy and Amethyst Alchemy over it ( both metallics)

 

Teeth are Reaper Creamy Ivory and I mixed that with Clotted Blood Red for the Mouth.

 

The Brown Is Scale 75 Inktense Chestnut (Ink) And a little Inktense Wood ( Ink)

 

The Belly is Scale 75 Inktense Black ( Ink) and the yellow spots are Vallejo Golden Brown.

 

The base is done with many colours and inks...

That's one bad bug!

Great work!

 

Thanks!

It took me a while to decide on the colours, I had it printed out months ago, but then I finally decided on the colours and it was done pretty quickly.

Great find!

Awesome paint job and base.  What an eerie monster.

 

Thank you!

Those bases are also a joy to paint!

The Big Crawly Beasty has achieved the ultimate reaction of Bug Kind; i.e., the thing gives me the creepy itches. It is a BEAUTIFULLY realistic looking creature. VERY WELL DPONE!

The metallics gave it a nice iridescent vibe. Nice color selection. 

 

 

Thanks, I was inspired by Reef Worms and Bobbit Worms, decided on a different colour but keep the idea of metallic shine.

Sorry for the itches Al!

Thanks for the praise, it's always motivating to hear that someone likes my painting, keeps me going.

Oh that's nice. You really got the colouration for the back down pat. It really looks like the beach worms we used to dig to use for bait.

 

Thank you!

Happy you like it!

      One of the bugs that always bothered me about the old site was how my shopping cart was never persistent, i.e. when I put something in my shopping cart and left it there, my cart would be empty when I came back a day or more later. I so looked forward to the new site coming out! Finally, I'd be able to shop, add a few minis to my cart, and when I reached the fre shipping level, fire off an order. Well, this still doesn't seem to be the case. I added several minis to my cart yesterday, and today my cart is empty. Is this such a hard issue? Is it working as designed? Is it not the best way to function? To think of all the minis I would have bought had they but persisted in my shopping cart!

      Here is my take on the Bones 4 Grubs from the Fan Favorites Expansion. I really wanted to try out Michael Proctor's dot texture method, and I had these two primed and ready so I went for it! Someone on facebook called them Evil Croissants, and now that's all I can think of when I see them.

      Greetings!
       
      I envisaged the prarie tick queen as a monstrous bloodsucker so I gave her a red bloated body. The markings on the body are meant to be blood vessels inside her but I think I made them too dark.
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!!

      Getting back to painting, after a brief break to take care of some other things.  This was my first attempt at a non-humanoid/skeleton, so I had trouble judging the proper size for the striations on the carapace (which is to say that they're generally too short and thick ), but it was fun to try doing a different material effect.
       

      As usual, more pictures and thought process at my blog: link
       
      Looking back at it now, I should've shaded more of the flat area of the red and done more to separate the body from the ground.  The eyes are a bit sloppy, too, but they're so damn small that I'm amazed at how cleanly others have painted them.  There's also an ugly gap between the Bones base and the actual base, though that's because I'd overestimated the strength of the bond (using just PVA and spackle) and broke it off, and then I just superglued it back in place as closely as I could without adding any more filler.  On the plus side, I think the blood stains and the white "reflection" lines on the red areas both added nice touches without being overpowering or garish.
