Variety is the spice

I've begun a new stage in the Twilight project. Though I still have a couple of big beasts of burden to paint, I wanted to do something different for a change. That's why I chose some anthropomorphic creatures. Three quite different ones, I must add. Let's start with the Fubarnii falconer:

Epic colour-burning pic. Ouch
It was the first mini of this batch I decided to paint as it immediately caught my eye. Ain't it beauty? The mere concept of the falconer is cool by itself, but the sculpt is also full of tiny details. The way the clothes are presented, its lace, its trimming... They all speak of a delicate, high-born person with a respected profession within the Fubarnii society.

I'm afraid those aren't Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. But could be
Quite a contrast with the next one, in which I found very different lines:

A travelled fluoride green lizard
Gil Marsharl, travelling biologist, was the exclusive miniature from the first Twilight KS. A totally different mini, yet full of character and tiny details. Once again I went through the flamboyant approach...
If he gets lost in the woods it would be easier to find
 So OK, a falconer and a biologist. What next?
Some action, a Casanii leader, Telani Deyath:

With his loyal Yellowscales
The Casanii have a distinctive look within the World of Twilight ranges. They have a strong African vibe (at least for me!!) I'd love to take further and develop. Though I went Oriental with Loranti Pargal, minis like this one are asking for something in this fashion (which is great, as I hope it will let me try colourful patterns!)

Yet more to come!!

    1. That's what makes them appealing to me, they instil some vibe I don't tend to see in other stuff. It's quite a challenge to paint, believe me, but I'm delighted withe them.

    It's really great to see alternative schemes to the typical drab.

    1. Being different as they already are, I'm trying to put an effort to make them look super colourful, and I think they respond pretty well to that. I really need to take some decent pics though :S

  7. Always great to see your bright colourschemes on these!
    I tend towards shades of brown and grey when I paint, so it's good to be shown how well brighter colours can work :)

    1. Thank you! I've already said this a few times now, but I find these minis highly inspiring, your sculpt is refreshing and the minis invite to take your brushes to new ideas and schemes :)
