Vrock Steady

Ok, so bad puns aside, a bit of soul will help you with the future puns: Rock Steady – Aretha Franklin

A bit of free time today due to Canada Day and a bit of brush work was managed.  This was a bit difficult with the injured finger but even more painful for the eyes.

The Vrock is apparently a dancing bird demon in D&D, but to me bird demons always evoke either Babylonian mythology or the bird daemons of Tzeentch in the Games Workshop universes.  The GW scheme and concept drove me to the colour scheme, but this horrific assault on your vision could also be put on a square base and used with my Persians in HOTT – the colours match anyways, or at least the sheer number of colours match.

The blending was done quickly on the legs, arms and tail with the head being a blending of dry-brushed highlights to transition.

Overall I was hoping to include as many colours as I could.  Something struck me as unholy and bizarre in including every colour.  At one point I described this as a picture painted by a toddler that a crayon eating clown threw-up on.  I think the only base colour missing as a key colour is brown.

For action, we have poor Joliee trying to figure out what exactly she is looking at.

Although a short post, hopefully it inspires you to try horrific colours on the horror critters you paint up.
