This has been a long ongoing project i am trying to finish up. The idea was ro create a solid looking gargantuan green using the gargantuan white dragon and some greenstuff, plasticard. I saw the need to add some new "parts" on the white to make it a more convincing green dragon. The main things i needed to see added were the spine, longer spikes on its elbows, and natural armor plating all the way along the neck.(still to do) Some overall images of the gar white with some greenstuff additions.
Making the Spine: I started with cutting lengths of very heavy paperclip type wire at various lengths for the main spine on the drasgons back. I ended up using pieces of wire between 1 and 1 1/2". I then marked and drilled out holes to insert the wire. I bent the wire slightly using pliers before gluing them in place using 5 minute epoxy. In hindsight i would have used pliers and sharpened the tips of the wire using the dremmel tool with a heavy duty cutoff disk.
You've made some nice editions to the sculpt, the spine is a really good addition and improves the model a lot. I'm not that big a fan on the organic armour you sculpted on to the neck though tbh, I think it could have looked better if it was similar to the existing plates on the neck, just bigger plates that are quite pointy which would be in keeping with the spine and spikes on the gargantuan.
With regards to the paint job, it could just be the photo's washing it out, but there's not much distinction between the different areas or any shading and highlighting. It looks like you have used a slightly lighter green on some areas which is a good way to break up the colour. I think it could have been nice to see the armour plating on the neck painted a different shade of green as well as the dorsel fin between the spines.
Other than that it looks to be a very neat paintjob. I hope that you don't take this badly as I'm not slating what you have done as it's a nice looking model, it's just a bit of constructive critism to help it look that little bit better.
