Messing with Narthrax – Paint

IMG_0876

Narthrax has been propped up on my workstation staring at me for over a month.  One of the reasons it remained there for so long is because I wasn’t able to decide what color it should be.  Red? No.  Blue? Nah.  Green?  Nope…and so on.  At the risk of sounding a little too artsy sometimes you just to let the colors emerge.  Break out the Gesso!

A base coat of brown.  Hmm.  A more natural color maybe?  I noticed my daughter was playing Skyrim the other day and I wonder if that didn’t have some effect.

I started adding some highlights and thought maybe some cream and rust colors might help lighten it up.

The eyes need some rework:

Now back to the base that I built for her a while back and some better lighting.

It still needs dome detail work and a magnet placement for the back foot but I’m surprisingly happy with the direction this is going.

Thanks for taking a look,

  1. Thanks, for some reason the bigger pieces seem to go lot quicker. They seem to intimidate me quite a bit but once I start they’re actually easier than the traditional adventure miniatures. Looking forward to what you do with your dragon!
