Tiny lizards of twilight

Happy 2017 if I haven't told you earlier!
I hope everyone out there enjoyed their season days and the new year brings all the best :)

For the moment I can bring a handful of World of Twilight dinosaurs :D

I tried quite different schemes for these two, though keeping the same basic pattern:

Though keeping in mind the 'Avatar' orientation, I'm trying not to restrain myself to that kind of strictly cold palette, I'm open to different colours, as long as they look nice and catch the eye.

This was more or less what I thought of these swarms of tiny critters:

Well, I start the year with more infamous pics. Let's see if a close-up allows you to see them better.

Not that it improves, but you get an idea
I find it fun going crazy with the palette and not trying to stick to 'natural' colours. I'm not going towards a GW in the 90's style, though. However, as I'm writing this, I'm wondering how would one of these lizards look in flashy pink. Hmm. A question worth of being answered...

Well, this is it for now. Warming up the motors for 2017... Allons-Y!

    1. Thanks! I've found blue to be quite an interesting colour for this project, far from more earthy, 'natural' approaches, and I think this is what these creatures are asking for. More to come!

  2. Allons-y indeed! Those are proper alien beasts that look like they stepped out of the pages of Heavy Metal.

    1. Thank you! The minis are lovely, and quite multi-purpose, I'm thinking of different settings for them :)

    1. Thank you! They are tiny beauties, they were asking for a colourful pattern. I still think I have to dare to more risky colours...

  5. Happy new year dude, and nice dinos! Love the Avatar vibe with these - they look almost toxic! Superb :-)

    1. Thank you, man! They certainly can (and hopefully will) be used for a number of settings, from fantasy to post-apoc and sci-fi. If I'm not restraining their uses, I shouldn't restrain the palette! :D

    It's so nice to see such a daring approach to our cold blooded friends. Very inspirational for the next time I tackle a reptile (ahem, dewbacks)... thanks Suber.
