    So a while back i built myself a trogolodon but i didn't really like any of the color schemes i saw for it so i went to make my own. taking a look at our world's lizards for ideas, turns out there is one venomous lizard out there: the gila monster! so anyway here is the final result.

    Could you reveal your paint scheme? Black/orange is astonishing

    Sure thing
    First off i undercoated it all with black
    next i worked on the orange stripes with fire dragon bright, followed by a fuegan orange wash and finishing with ryza rust dry brushing
    The black more or less stayed as is, using abbadon black to touch up mistakes, using wrack white to define the scales better

    How did the orange cover the black, 2 coats or more?

    Looks really nice, great scheme.

    yup, just keep putting on thin coats until the orange is nice and bright, 2 sounds about right
