Welcome to Librarium Online!
I had a couple of people ask how I painted in the cold ones and thought id make a mini tutorial.
First off, undercoat white. This is a first for me as I usually use black, but the white gives natural highlights on fleshy creatures. Once undercoated give a watered down layer of dark angels green. See how the scales already look like they've been highlighted?
Next pick out individual scales in both a dark and a lighter green. Ive used scaley green and vallejo olive. This represents older, darker scales ready to fall off and newly grown scales. It also adds a bit of variation and makes the skin look more interesting. Dont over do it though or youll end up with a lizard with the measles!
Next, paint the soft underbelly with graveyard earth, the spiky bits and teeth in bleached bone and the inside of the mouth in any colour you want, i used violet.
Finally wash all the bone area's and the soft flesh in devlan mud. And thats it! You can now pick out any details, re highlight the bone and paint the saddle in the colours that will match your army. Each cold one took me roughly 15 minutes from start to finish.
That's pretty good for a 15 minute job.
The one thing that annoys me about painting is just how long it takes me to do everything.

Nice job. One of these days I might do Cold One Rough Riders for IG. I was always picturing a sort of giant Gila Monster look for them. I'll definitely have to remember this guide. Nice and simple with great results!
Somehow I missed this thread. Thats a good and quick way to paint up lizards. I like the way you used the dark angels green to get that early effect, it looks like ink. I think you should pay more attention to the eyes as they look a little messy. Try yellow with a black slit. I would add some more bleached bone to the claws and teeth to make them look sharper. Very good.
