Mini Update: Dragon encounter with an airbrush

I started painting this guy years ago. Stopped. Scratched my head about getting good blending on the wings. Shelved it. Came back to it and tried again. Not working. Then sometime back I went on a days airbrush course and took him with me and played around with that method.

I think the end results are okay. Very heavy on the contrasts and a lot more practice is needed. But he’s done. In a state that he is allowed on a table or display. Just took a long time. Now I just need to find the rider…

By the way, he’s a 15mm Demonworld High Elf Dragon – here is a link.

  1. It’s looks very impressive. Great old school dragon (spindly & sinuous). I really like how the yellows and brown work on the wings.

    1. Hi Stéphane – I used the airbrush primarily on the wings (yellows and browns as per Daveb’s kind comment). In areas there was enough work after the airbrushing that some of the ‘obvious blending’ offered by the airbrush isn’t so obvious (i.e. I’ve obscured it because, well, I’m not that good with it yet).

      During the same lesson I did some of the base work on this mini. I think the airbrush work is a bit more obvious;
