So, monsters really don't have to take a long time to paint; so it would seem. Maybe it is just because I finally have some free time, maybe it is because a Jabberwocky isn't dripping in lace, facings, buttons and brocade.
The red began as a mix of dark red with a tiny amount of the base green, dry brushed and blended at the transition area and more completely painted further along the wings and so on. This was then overbrushed with unmixed dark red, followed by drybrushing repeated layers of red, with lighter red then orange mixed in. No three layer technique here, just keep going until it looks right.
The chest/belly was next with the base green mixed firstly with a buff yellow, then increasing amounts of pale yellow then a little white added. All that was then left was the claws and teeth - sand brown up to a pale linen shade, and the eyes. A super simple base to match the rest of my Reaper dungeon models was all that was then required.
No time at all really. But I'm really happy with the look.
