An intro here from Azazel – I’ve gotten Marouda to paint something again – a model for Swordmaster’s latest Monster March painting challenge

Marouda – Here is my entry for Monster March. I believe Az purchased this one especially to motivate me to paint with him.
It worked. I love Mythology, especially Greek Mythology. I however was confused why this model was labelled as a Gorgon, isn’t that a Medusa type creature? Then Az explained how in D&D they are called Gorgons.

This one was quick and easy to paint (yes even for a beginner like me) especially with Az’s tuition. I did everything on the model except for the eyes (because I have ham hands) and mounting the model on the oval base. I really enjoyed the dry brushing techniques and applying the washes. I even used contrast paint and was a bit nervous with that because I didn’t know how it would behave and was worried it would run and drip all over the model. I really like how the rocks turned out, and the process it took.

I enjoyed learning to highlight using metallics. Basically I wanted a bronze bull. I did google the model to see what others had done with it, before deciding on my own colour choices. I chose to keep my steam a clear subtle white. I saw that others made theirs green and it looked like boogers. You can actually remove the smoke, it does look a bit cartooney with it but sort of cute.

Az is always asking me to paint with him and to help him paint, and I dont usually take up the offer, which is really my loss because I could be learning and improving my skills as well as spending some quality time together and an escape from the Bizzaroverse outside.

I think the last time I painted anything was last Monster March? I felt a bit more confident this time around. Perhaps I might start looking for my next model to paint?

Hope you enjoy viewing my model and reading my post. Happy painting everyone!

  1. Excellent work Marouda, a clean metallic finish can be very tricky to achieve, and you’ve pulled it off really well. You should keep up your painting as you get better every one you show, plus the quality time together, instead of bizzaro world outside would be a good bonus.

  2. Good job: you have all our admiration, because TMM is still torture for us and our results are so far very messy. I like the bronze-gold tone your bull (or Gorgon) has taken on, and the rock base has come out very realistic. Keep it up!

  3. Excellent job on this metal bull, Marouda! I’ve been thinking about playing a Roman/Greek wargame that has mythological creatures in it so this is right up my alley. I agree with you that the rocks came out really nice on this mini. I think you’ll find that everyone who follows Azazel’s work paints to some degree so we’re nothing, if not enablers, but I think painting is really relaxing and for that reason, I’d definitely recommend it as a hobby to anyone interested!
