Heresy Dragon WIP
« on: January 15, 2012, 10:30:46 AM »
Hi there,

Work is underway on the Dragon, and let me tell you I'm having a great time painting it.

I've finished the underbelly and scales for now.

Next up is the horns + claws then the wing membranes.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the back spines yet but I was thinking of keeping them the scale colour abd blending them to black toeards the tip.

Anyway, here's the photos

That is an awesome start Big Ned, Love the colour scheme you have going. I'm really surprised that this is the first dragon WIP going.

The back spines sound great, worth looking at the Wargods Sebeki that Marike Reimer did IMO.

Wow, that's a heck of a start... can't wait to see what you do with the rest of it! I agree with gi6ers about the back spikes - sounds like a good plan. Hats off to you for tackling such a big project!

Very much the naturalistic look I'm going for. Well, will be going for :)

No that's as far as I'm planning to go with the scales. I've used a wash to tone them down a bit, as the more extrene highlight didn't look as realistic.

Time for another update.

The claws are done now, plus the tip of the tail. That might not seem like much but there are 30 of them to do each with 5 painting stages.

Anyway here's the pics

I've basecoated the wing membranes.

 

 

I'm going to highlight using progressively more dark flesh to the mix but, I can't decide if the gradient should get lighter towards the centre of the membrane or towards the 'loose' edge.

What do you all think?

I'd work towards the edges, but what do I know? After all, you got this far without my input!   :D

I'd say lighter towards the middle as this photo clearly doesn't support in any way
