Andreas Dragon vignette

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Magnus, Sep 9, 2013.

    Hi, here is my fantasy vignette close to completion. One more week of fine adjustments before travelling to Euro.
    The dragon is the Andrea Fire Wings with repositioned neck and tail and rider removed. The lady is a converted “Mayan Princess” from El Viejo Dragon and the barbarian is from Scale75.
    The painting of the dragon is inspired from Chris Claytons magnificent Dragon Slayer. Also inspired of Frank Frazetta overall when starting this project.

    Comments are welcome, still time for adjustments J

    That's absolutely brilliant Magnus.
    I had pencilled this kit in as a project I'd like to do next year; so I'll be able to use your WIP as a good guideline for my own effort.
    Using the EVD and Scale75 figures is genius.

    Outstanding paint job and a well put together diorama.

    This is really well done, painting and scenery alike. I'll certainly look out for this one at Euro.

    My only criticism is that the damsel in distress looks a little .... well ... bored by the whole thing. Or at least not all that worried, just standing there bolt upright and looking the other way, apparently not in the slightest bit interested in what's going on in the titanic battle behind her.

    In view of that I'd have left her out of it completely, I think the scene would have worked just as well (if not better) with just the dragon and the Conan-type.

    Just my opinion, others may disagree.

    AWESOME - really like the entire scene

    Just some fun thoughts:) :
    -Is she bored or suffering from shock ? she is naked after all.
    -Maybe she has come to terms with her pending doom and has reached her "zen like" moment before death?
    -Maybe she has been kidnapped by a dragon before or taken for a sacrifice before and gone through all of this again - in which case she is quite bored.
    -She might be listening to her i-pod mini and hasent noticed what is going on in the back ground...
    -If the conan-type hero was alone in the scene, why kill the poor dragon if there is no damsel in distress to save? - no motivation for Conan.... but if he saves the girl he might get lucky......:love: ;):cool:

    she does look a little static but I don't even care, this thing is brilliant beyond that. All the figures work in this scene and I just love it. Great work sir with top painting to boot.

    That does it for me !! .. beautiful, and very well thought out! ...... a fantastic scene with excellent use of varied scale !.. but I will challenge anyone to come up with a better 'Girlie', in distress, or, even bored, lethargic, or saying here we go again, 'My Hero', ... in the same scale ! ..?? :D... there is lots of work put into this!... great stuff! ;)

    It's quite obvious she is thinking....Does my bum look big in this ???

    Wow! What a nice composition! Very well balanced and awesome use of space!
    Great work and would like to see more pictures, if it's possible!
    Thanks for sharing and looking forward to see more of your work!

    Hi everybody, thank you for the very nice comments.
    Regarding the static pose of the lady in distress, for me it was so natural that she has been chained up for some time and is in a lethargic mood. So thanks a lot for that critique, shows how one take things for granted sitting in the man cave and why it is so important with the forums to get feedback and perspective. Will definitely take that with me for future projects.
    Anthony, great list of explanations, thanks for the laugh J

    Adding some more photos from different angels as requested.

    Ecxellent work, Magnus. I'm so impressed of the skintones and the conversion ofthe dragon, much more vivid and more action in that pose. Congratulations on creating such a wonderful vignette.
