What big teeth you have grandma....

I've been holding onto these pictures for a while. I actually started them then decided to enter them into a contest on the WAMP forum where judging starts at the first of next month.
So Red Riding Hood is Kingdom Deaths 54mm Twilight Knight and the Wolf is Privateer Press's Warp Wolf Extreme (which my boyfriend designed and sculpted).  The warp wolf is the same one I started painting brown last year and put up on a shelf because I wasn't happy with how it was coming out.  So it got a simple green bath and since simple green kills green stuff i also had to refill all the gaps.
His skin tone was painted using many shades of blues, blacks and purples and his fur was done with blacks and reddish browns.  I really enjoyed painting his skin as it seemed much easier this time than it did before. A year of practice really made a difference for sure.
Red Riding Hood was my first practice subject for painting metallic paints (before Sebastian a few posts back). I really enjoyed experimenting with the browns, red, purples and blues on the silvers.
I trimmed down her cape because I really wanted her butt to show I know i'm a perv but seriously this miniature has a great ass. The body shape of the KD figures really reminds me of go go dancers from the 60s. Anyways I also added a few holes into the cape and trimmed down how thick the cape was in the shoulders and on the inside length of it.
The base is one of those cheep wooden plaques you can get at the craft stores for a buck.  The end where the tree trunk meets the base was hollowed out and then the tree was pinned to the wood and covered with magic sculpt to make sure it wouldn't pop out at any time.  Jason's Dremel really got a work out. Roots were sculpted with Fimo and the rock is well a rock from the front yard.  Fluffy green flock was used for the forrest floor and tiny dried flowers and moss were added.  The mushroom on the tree I sculpted and the magic mushroom on the ground Jason sculpted for me. They were actually demos for me so I would know how to sculpt them of course his demos are going to be better than any I can put together the first time around.
Lastly the wood base was painted last and then covered in 2 layers of dark wood varnish - voila she is done!

I call him Zorak

A couple more baby dragon WIP shots.
The blue one I call Zorak as his eyes were inspired by a suspicious Zorak from Cartoon Planet.

WIP - Baby Dragon from Super Dungeon Explore

I'm working on something totally adorable!  I know some people have already seen them at or in pictures from Gen Con and PAX.... Here is the first of 4 baby dragons that will be available in Super Dungeon Explore  as far as I know you won't be able to get them anywhere else.  Once you see them in person you will want to paint them all.  [pimping]So seriously pre-order your copy today! [/pimping] ;)

But my little dragons won't be used in the board game, I'm working up a special scene for them on a scenic base.  I'm also planning on painting them all different colors because well I can!  I also plan on testing out some water effects that Jason bought for me from Japan.
Here is a preview WIP shot of my baby green dragon I still need to play around with his freckles, toes and eyes a bit.
