First things first. According to that wiki, a 5e Silver Dragon has two claws coming from the wing. To conform to this standard I took the claw on the wing of the Fire Dragon, and split it in half. Presto! Two claws per wing! Once I was done mutilating the miniature, I base layered the fella with twilight blue for all the silvery areas and brown for all the yellowy areas.
Teh Color Scheme
- Body: Based with Twilight Blue, Then dry brush layered from Stone Grey to Polished Silver. Highlighted with Polished Silver.
- Belly, Claws and Spines: Based with earth brown, the drybrushed with a dull yellow and washed again with earth brown. I then Highlighted it with more of the dull yellow.
- Membranes: Based with Twilight Blue, and highlighted with Aged Bone.
- Claws: Based with Earth Brown and the drybrushed and highlighted with Aged Bone.
If you would like to watch how I did each section of this miniature, you can check out the raw video from my live stream:
In part two of this series, I showed how I created the custom base for this piece. About an hour of stamping some fast acting epoxy putty with a rock later and we have a great basis for a custom base! I finished the stonework with a moderate dry brushing of Stone Grey and highlighting of Aged Bone.
If you would by chance like to purchase this collectable piece, I have started an auction on ebay just in time for the holidays! You can check that out here! Happy bidding!
