I would never have considered this mixture of pastel shades but they work so well together :-* :-* The dappling is stunning :-*

Really enjoying all your work. Such creativity and inventiveness, but that Kirin is on another level. Oh wow!  :o. Such an effective paint job too. Your technique for the dappling works brilliantly. Going to have to try that out too. Keep up the fantastic work!

Top-drawer stuff. That Kirin has really taken an already wonderful thread to the next level.

You're all too kind guys  :)  thank you all.

For all you yokai fans, I'm working on a jubokko next, a vampiric tree that sprouts from the blood soaked ground of battlefields  :o

As you walk through the woods perhaps being less careful than you should, you graze your face on a sharp twig sticking out from a low branch.  You flinch as the scratch stings deep and feel the warm blood trickle down your cheek.  Purely an accident right?  But what if it wasn't?
A Jubokko is a vampiric tree, malicious and always thirsty for human blood.  Born from the tear soaked grounds of ancient battlefields, it waits, silently until a passerby strays too close.  A quick scratch for a few drops of blood might be all it wants, but if it hasn't fed for a long time it grabs its unsuspecting prey with its gnarled old limbs, squeezing and crushing until all of the victim's fluids have moistened the tree's roots.  Empty husks of former victims litter the ground around the jubokko, attracting all manner of evil creatures with a taste for flesh...






A nice quick build and paint for this one- starting with a GW plastic tree with minimal retexturing and resculpting, and a bunch of plastic skulls and bones.  Hopefully a useful bit as background/scenery as well as a fierce monster  :)

I love those GW trees.Very quirky and work well in a few settings, and you have just added another to the list.

I love that tree.

I mean, it's not a hamster using his own nutsack as a skippyball, but it's still rather awesome.

Beautifull stuff on this thread.
