I have spent just over the last month or so working on Gauth. I have had several issues with this figure over that time. The first issue I had was my own fault because I didn’t make sure all of the pieces fit together properly before I glued him together. The other thing that caused me problems was the amount of heat warping of various pieces.
Painting the dragon went well, using the airbrush I mostly used a rust color and tried to blend in some signal red. This didn’t work as well as I had hoped. I ended up using a copper paint to give it some depth, and then went back over it with the rust.
I then applied some black washes and added a shadowed stone for the stone base that his feet are on.
I then filled some of the horns and bone spurs with dirty bone, and added more layers of black ink, red ink, and shadowed red. I also glued his tail to the base so that he would look quite so drunken and would not rest with his nose on the base. This is what I ultimately ended up.
