Things Get Painted - Dragon Hatchling

Image
Quick pictures of the Reaper Bones Dragon Hatching I finished last night. Tabletop quality, so I haven't fussed doing fancy photos.

Terror Tot 1. While these were all painted together, they each gave me a chance to do some things I had not done before. Number 1 gave me a chance to work on some weird curved blades, so I got to mess around with the coloured metallics I was doing in a different circumstance. I also was trying a different way of doing bone colour that I had heard previously from Georc. Mixing two complementary colours like a yellow bone and dark purple (Like I used on the skin) gives a muted colour, so you can fade between the two easily. This let me try working some purple shade into the bone. 






Terror Tot 2. This little guy had a lot of personality, and I specifically remember the face being great fun to paint. The punching daggers he has are also the reason I wanted to do blood effects on the crew. However, due to the …
