Three heads are better than one!

Some time ago I painted two headed hound from Mierce Miniatures. Now It’s time for three headed hydra – Khallas, Hydrakh of Ydron – also from Mierce Miniatures. This is really fine detailed miniature sculpted by talented Roberto Chaudon. It is based on 80mm round base, so the monster is neither too small nor to large.
Applying green base paint and basic highlighting with airbrush really helped to speed up the painting process. Even if most of the paintjob was done with a brush – enhancing shadows and highlights as well as painting details. For the base I used Vallejo Still Water as I cannot imagine hydra without water 🙂

I did not see this mini painted anywhere, but I guess this is good. This way I could use my imagination and creativity to paint her just as I imagined without copying other painter’s idea. Her – because this creature definitely looks like a female to me 🙂 Maybe because of long neck and specific head(s) position…. I just got that impression. And what do you think?
