Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing. In this case, I was just using it to test some colors.
Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun. I figured this gross figure needed a green belly. From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple. Challenge accepted.
I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple. Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots. Still wanted more. Made a light wash of that purple and filled in the sections and gaps in the chitin. Worked well.
For a three color combo it sure does look weird, but also some how works. I'm digging this color theory thing.
Here's the progress photos.
This one is taking me forever!
I'm at a standstill with doing this eyeball. I also can't tell if i need to change the weird yellow i did around the eye. I'm also struggling with the pumpkin lights in the heads.
Overall I'm struggling and need suggestions.
Here's where I'm at:

Just in time for the season!
I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis. I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it.
This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely. Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things. But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.
I love doing WIPs. And I've got a lot projects I should finish 😊. And since there is still no progress with Barros and Tempest (this time because I'm still waiting for a new base to be shipped), why not start something new?
I've yet to paint my first dragon, so I'll use this opportunity to do it. I confess, I'm cheating a bit here, since I'm going to paint the white dragon by Dark Sword Minis - that's a very small dragon. But still, he's got wings and teeth and claws and scales, so definitely a dragon, yessir!
I absolutely love this mini. I bought it many years ago, but the horns went missing. Fortunately, when I ordered some more minis from Dark Sword a while ago, I was able to order some spare horns, so now I'm good to go.
Here he is, assembled and prepped:
Now I have to decide on a paint scheme, which I can't bring myself to do. There are three ideas I have at the moment:
paint him up as an ice dragon. I'm thinking white with pinkish/greenish undertones and a base made with transparent crackle paint. There was a very cool version of an Ice Dragon a while ago on this forum, but I can't seem to find it any more. paint him up as a star dragon using the technique I learned at RVE in Kevin Holderny's class. I used it on a coat so far, maybe it looks very cool on the dragon's wings. paint him up as a real world snake. Now there are so many possibilities...
Some more work on the base.
