Dagon: More Limbs

Continued shading and highlighting along Dagon's legs. All the appendages are done now. I'd hoped to get the shading on his body done as well, but no such luck.

I'm not thrilled with how he's looking, but I'm hopeful that once I get in to the body (and the face) it'll improve. He's in Ugly Stage right now, for sure.

Continued on Dagon, adding shading and highlighting on all the pink bits and starting on his legs.

Dagon: Base coating. Demon: Jewelry

I started with base coating Dagon himself today. I used my airbrush to put down the base color, then also tried to use it to put in the blue shading and the pink details. I was really happy with the base coat. Much less so with the rest. I'm just not good enough with the airbrush to do that kind of work.

I went back and cleaned up a bunch of it with the brush. Then I decided I was having a lot of trouble placing shadows without him being on the base. So, I filled in the shadow color on the parts of the underside that I had missed with the airbrush, and glued him in place. I think there's plenty of room to work underneath him if I need to...hopefully I won't make too much of a mess in the process.

Next time will be more shading on him.

I did a little work on Big Blue as well. I did an undercoat and then the gold for his necklace. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I'm tempted to do the 'fang' looking parts in silver instead of bone, which was my original idea.

Demon: Back Highlights

Continued on the demon today. I did the highlights and glazing on his back. It's pretty much done; there are a couple spots I might try to smooth further. I'm not going to put as much effort into this view, though. It's clearly not the money shot.

Dagon: Base Done. Demon: Shading back.

I did manage to finish off Dagon's base today.

I'm pretty happy with the result, except I probably could have highlighted the tube coral more.

If I had time after I finished the base, my plan was to start on Dagon's main body with the airbrush. I did have time, but really didn't feel like getting in to the airbrush. Instead, I worked on shading the back of the demon. It's the last skin-area I have for him.

I don't like working with the airbrush in the evenings because I have much more limited time (and I'm usually more tired). So probably what I will do this week is work on finishing him. Another possibility is maybe working on one of the Amazons...but he's awfully close to the 'power through until he's done' point.

Dagon: Base & Detail

Continued working on Dagon's base. I got the rest of the sand base coated and detailed, and moved on to the corals. The branched coral is done, as are the brains. The others all need some more work.

Lesson learned today: Do not use your good brushes to paint scenery/basing. It doesn't need them, and will ruin them. :(

Id been hoping to be done with this today, but no such luck. I should be able to get it wrapped up tomorrow, though.
