The beginning of this week was a bit slower on the cretacea front. I personally think it's healthy if a project ebs and flows, full force progress can be a bit tricky and sometimes things fall through the gaps so it's good that i've now hit the "paint wall" and that i've got something quite meditative in the form of the dino collection to get through, if i haven't brain stormed a few good ideas by the end of the next two weeks then i'm happy to call the current book complete (pending edits and playtests).
I've painted one of the raptors and it came out really nicely. I decided to go with yet another slightly odd color scheme but i thought stark white raptors could be quite attention grabbing, so i pursued it and was not dissapointed with the results.
Truthfully a large chunk of today and yesterday where just basing hours, carefully painting around the dinos feet and there are still more to add to the collection, but i really want to finish this lot first or i'll never catch up! At the moment we have:
- A Brachiosaurus family
- A styracosaurus family
- A triceratops family
- A dimetrodon family
- An ankylosaurus family (though many of the models can act as stand in for other ankylosaurids)
- A t-rex family
- A gigantosaurus family
- a stegosaurus family
- a velociraptor / deinonychus family.
i'm really enjoying the progress and the collection is going to look awesome on display, just all laid out with the colors and shapes of these awesome animals on show.
