Painting Highlight: THE XANATHAR

Oh, boy, do I have an update for you all today, Dear Readers! I finally got my metallic color paints in!

Here’s an unboxing for you:

This is the box that I finally got in the mail!

A lovely tray, with the lovely colors and the one effect. Additionally the 16 ball barrings that allow the colors to mix so much better. Although they aren’t pictured, of course it came with a small brochure and painting guide.

Here are all the colors and the effect. For those unaware, the Fairy Dust effect is great as it turns any color into a metallic color. It’s pretty handy.

Here’s where we begin. This is how he looked when I last left off:

We start off with his central eye. I’ve put off painting it as I’ve not had the right color to do it.

Notice I’ve left off the eye slit. I’m not too good at painting it, so I’m putting it off.

Now for the rings to be painted, as the Xanathar wears a ring on four of his eyestalks.

Notice that I had originally missed one of the rings. Yeah, I’ll get to it in a bit.

Now for the eyes on the eyestalks:

I finally got the ring. Can you see it?

Now for the central eye slit…

There is the central eye. I free-handed it, and I think it turned out great.

So what do you think, Dear Readers? How do you think it’s coming along? I’m going to do the shading and such next, and will update everyone next week!

Until next time, Dear Readers…
