Thank @KruleBear, I'm glad you like it. I thought of adding different colors to the skin after I painted everything in pink. It was too monotone, so I decided to add a few different colors. I then blended the blue and green color with the pink and highlighted with pink. The final highlight is a mix of pink and tusk ivory.

Looks great!  I can only imagine the patience it must have taken to paint all those eye.  I have a hard enough time when something only has the usual two!

Thanks for your comments everyone. @Rignes I understand your point, eyes can be hard to paint. I’m not sure it has anything to do with patience, it's more about concentration, brush control and practice. I think painting is very relaxing and stress relieving. When I sit at the painting table, it takes a few minutes and my mood changes. It makes me happy to paint. I guess that’s what happens whenever someone is passionate about what he is doing.

For me it depends on the model.  Some times I just want to get it done so I can play the game.  Then there are others that I just want to paint for the fun of it.  Those are the ones that I can get "in the zone" and it becomes almost a Zen like experience.  It's a nice balance to the frantic pace of the day to be able and sit and just laser focus on something sometimes.

I agree, we all have our favorite types of models. I prefer to paint monsters and undead. I rarely step out my confort zone and paint a "character" type of model.

OMG that's so gross!  I hope you left one eye unpainted!

I'm glad you like it. No eye have been left unturned. I mean, no stone have been left unpainted... :poke:

      Never heard of this before but it's a cool monster. Not sure when or where you'd run into one, but I bet it will be the most inconvenient time and place.   According to online sources they come in all colors, so I loosely based mine on a green iguana.

      Hello everyone. Here it is, I completed my chimeric aberration. At the heart of the barren wasteland, during a cursed journey to redemption, the champion met a limping chimeric aberration. It has the main features of a giant hound, a vulture head stretches out of its right side and a hulking insect head sits on the left side.
       
      Every part I used are from Reaper Miniatures. The main body is a 02817 Moor Hound sculpted by Ben Siens. The two extra heads are from 03069, Hooked Hulk sculpted by Michael Brower which are included in 03440 creature components pack 2. The spiked tail is from a 14456 Mastema sculpted by Julie Guthrie, included in 03334 Creature Components. The wings are from a 03641 Gunslinger model sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I finally swapped its left side paws for claw and a palmed foot at the back. These parts are part of the 03440 creature components pack 2.
       
      The colors are all Reaper MSP paint. I was inspired by the Cù-Sìth from the Scottish folklore for the main body. The additional heads have traditional vulture and praying mantis colors. Due to the large size of the monster, I built a 50mm wide base. I plan to create the stats for this monster and build a surprise encounter for my fellow D&D player. Let me know what you think about it.
       
      Here is the link to the WIP.

      Good Friday everyone, I just took some pictures of the 02479, Ettin I completed last night. This is a Dark Heaven Legends metal model that was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It stand on a 50mm base and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Coincidently, I was delighted to see the amazing upcoming two-headed Troll also sculpted by Jason Wiebe that was announced last night during Reaper Live #117 on Twitch. (see the image under spoiler and the end of the post).

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred
