What would be an awesome color scheme for Cang-?

Asked by mazingerz88 (22932points) May 28th, 2013

I recently got a 24 inch dragon resin kit called Cang the Implacable Dragon. The pro painter who is going to assemble and paint him is asking which colors I want to see in my piece, especially the predominant one.

There are several different painted versions on the net but there are only two which really look magnificent. One is green and yellow…http://www.coolminiornot.com/322209?browseid=5516749

And the second one is blue and red…http://www.coolminiornot.com/shop/cang.html
I have absolutely no idea what other colors would do well to make my piece look as stunning as the two examples above. Wondering whether there’s any jelly out there who could help me out before the painter starts painting. Thanks a lot. : )

I seem to be having a problem with posting the links so I’m going to try to place it here instead. This is the link to the blue/red paint scheme…version1

And green/yellow paint scheme…version2

I liked version 2 best. I looked at images of fantasy dragons, perhaps you could find some ideas there.

Well, colour is a personal thing. I like earth tones, for instance. A brown/gold scheme would appeal to me. A blue/silver or purple/peach might work for someone else. Where will it be displayed? What do you like?

NOT purple and green, like Barney.

El_Cadejo's avatar

I was actually going to say purple with slight green and orange hues.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yes but purple with a big green belly would be too Barney.
Pick a picture of a jungle fowl like THIS..
Notice there is not a green and purple theme.

Thanks guys and gals. @Seek_Kolinahr It will be displayed on my desk at home. And I don’t know what color I prefer. Just want it to look fearsome and magnificent and striking all at the same time and possibly better than the samples given.

I also looked at images of fish scales and I saw some really gorgeous colors.

@YARNLADY Good thinking, Flasher Wrasses and Dragonets have some really beautiful color combinations.

Oh wow thanks @uberbatman and @YARNLADY-! Will definitely consider this and might send the painter some pics. : )

Make sure to post pictures here once it’s painted.

I like orange and yellow dragons. Also, if you can find iridescent paint, that would look cool as a top coat.

mazingerz88's avatar

Yes @uberbatman will definitely do that. :) Thanks @FluffyChicken I like those colors too. Iridescent paint sounds brilliant-! I’ll mention it to the painter. Will take a while before he finishes but says he might be done 3rd week of June.
