This is my first bust. I chose Figone's lion for this, as it is less intimidating than a human for large scale to start - next up is a human! I imagined this lion as whimsically day dreaming about a fantasy world. He's attached to his base by a magnet, so I can change that later if I want. I also took this figure as a practice for mostly-monochrome (used a range of blues, whites and black, instead of a single blue). Paints are by Reaper, and a few S75 and Vallejo.

    Awesome I love this one!

    • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

      Thank you!! I have to convince myself to use colors other than blue after this guy; somehow I wasn’t sick of blue by the end!

  • Kara Nash

    Some wonderful patterning around the face. You must have really enjoyed this piece.

    • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

      He was wonderful to paint! I’m usually quite slow and he flowed extremely well from start to finish. I don’t know if it was the limited palette or the figure itself, but it was quite pleasing.

    Awesome work, love the monochromatic tone you went with. I think I saw this on the Colorado Miniature Painters page if I’m not mistaken? Anyway thanks for favoriting!

    • Rhiana, "Cyradis"

      Yup! I did it for their bust painting event earlier this year.
