    uhm...that isn't a dragon. I thought you only painted dragons, or was it you only bought dragons... I forget. Nice work on the bust! I am really liking the yellow shirt, sadly I have not been able to get good results from yellow yet so a bit envious there!

    Since April I’ve done 2 Dragon busts, part way through another one(not working as well as I want it to be) bought 2 Dragons Kickstarter’d 2 with Dragons (painted one of those) done a deal to get another classic Wyrm and found two I’d forgotten I had.

    I don’t see this as a problem.

    That bust looks great! May I ask who makes it and who the subject is? Eki is right about the yellow. Its a tough color to master and it looks really nice on this guy.

    He’s ‘Little King’ from Greg Girault’s sculpting.

    Really great quality stuff, although I was a little concerned about the quality of the resin at first once primed it looked exactly like the display piece he had down at Euro-Militaire Expo.

    As as for the yellow ‘recipe’ I’ll detail what I used later on today.

    Looks fantastic! The yellow is very commendable. I like the scarring on the face, as well.

    Oh very good, I'd say you're definitely getting the hang of it!

    In regard to the Yellow, here’s what I used:-
    Basecoat = Scale75 Sahara Yellow (took three or four thin coats over Vallejo grey airbrush primer)
    Highlighting = Vallejo Model Colour Yellow Ochre 50/50 with Basecoat
    2nd highlight = Vallejo Model Colour Yellow Ochre
    1st shadow = Vallejo Model Colour Ochre Brown 50/50 with Basecoat.
    2nd shadow = Vallejo Model Colour Ochre Brown.
    Tidied up where needed (accidents do happen)
    additional highlights built up with Vallejo Model Colour Yellow Ochre and slowly adding Vallejo Model Colour Ivory.

    So I hope that helps you.

    I’ll see myself out!!!! I GIVE UP - when you can start to teach older gentlemen painting tricks there’s no reason for me to try and stand against that .lololol
    DR great job on a wonderfully informative thread with some great paintings and helpful tips- I heard you were a bit of a dragon bust girder . Or maybe you just hoard dragons- I’ll bet if Smaug was here youde put him in your gold pile of minis. lol lolllool thanks for a great thread- I love the wasteland warrior ,the ork pilot, and the yellow shirted knight . Thanks for all.

    Thanks for the yellow formula. I will have to give it a try (at least with comparable paints as I think I only have the VMC Ivory out of all you listed)

    When to a ‘Well regarded show yesterday” the White rose Christmas bash over in Headingly, Leeds.
    Got a great an warm reception for being a ‘virgin’ to the show.
    Put some stuff out on Display and drooled over some off the other lovely pieces.

    But this one I’m particularly pleased with. This is only 6-7 hours work.

    I’ve got my camera on charge to do some pictures for the gallery.
    Yep that’s Sharpe (aka Sean Bean) from Mitch’s Military Miniatures.

    Great selection of miniatures Mike. The OSL , composition and painting on the candle girl is a real winner

    I agree with the others, really nice work on the candle girl and really good verse on the plaque.

    Well I can take no credit for the verse.
    It’s courtesy of NEIL GAIMAN either from “Neverwhere” or “Stardust’ about a ‘Babylon Candle.’
