Monster Finished Sort of



So, I finished my monster sort of.  He still needs his base.  But, I can add that easy enough.  This first picture is with his first base coat on and the addition of the blue spots. I wanted to show the process I usually go through.



In this picture he has his first glaze coat of green gold fluid acrylic.  I use Golden brand as I love there pigment quality.  I add a bit of fluid matte medium to thin it a bit more and just lightly paint on the glaze.



Here he is finished.  This is after applying the glaze coat of Quinachrodone Nickel Gold fluid acrylic and a walnut acrylic stain.  His eye got it's pupil somewhere in the midst of the painting.  This was a fun little fellow to make.  As a matter of fact he has inspired me to write again.  I am working on the Encyclopedia of Monster and Related Creatures of the Clifton area of Cincinnati Ohio.  I thought this would make a fun tome to accompany my creatures.  A friend suggested I write about them as I had such interesting stories for each one.  So, this will be my attempt at doing that.  I will keep you all updated and maybe get a chance to post a few excerpts from time to time.  Happy weekend everyone.
