Alright, he's done! This little guy is a gift for my computer repairing friend, who has dealt with my computer for far too long. He's an uber nerd.
I tried my hand at NMM again on the pistol. This time I didn't quite go all the way to black, sortof. I used a super pale blue-gray, then washed with black, and highlighted with ghost white. There is a wee blue part on the back of the pistol - those are my friend's initials. The figure in the store page that's painted has the hands as just hands, but I saw extra wrinkles and decided to make the hands gloved instead. Would have been too much of a pain to file them down to hands, I think. Impression I was going for with the outfit was sweater, jeans, gray coat, black gloves and boots. I considered putting 5318008 on the calculator, but my brushes complained about that, so I went with pi.
Still working out the photography aspect, but these aren't too shabby. Unfortunately, I accidentally got my fingerprints all over the outer lens of my nice camera when disassembling the lighting setup after this photo >.< The lens stuck to the light ring and it was so clear that I didn't notice until I bopped it with my greasy mitts.
Link to the WIP:
I am going to be gluing this guy to a clear round base; the shoes will be painted last after I dislodge him from the tiny bit of metal used to hold him. I don't do much basing so I avoid this type until I find a perfect figure for my needs like this.
This fellow will be a gift for the nerd who has been repairing my computer. Thinking blue hair, green skin, red shirt, gray coat, jeans.
The eye turned out okay. Face is alright so far. Just started the sweater, but then I started hacking up a lung and stopped. It is tough painting right now as I sporadically am having hideous coughing fits. Both that and hot toddy remedies are bad for painting :(
Anyway, current WIP. My rainbow fairy should get some updates tomorrow.
This is the first figure that I completed when I came back from my hiatus. I'd done his eyeballs and a tiny bit of his snout before the hiatus, then completed him after. Bonus - facial recognition catches both of the human heads as faces, hah!
Title has 1/3 because the package has 3 frogmen in it.
Again, still suffering on the photography side, but it is improved from just the paint table.
The green shading and his throat went really well. The dragonfly "meh". His clothing "meh". But hey, was dusting off the brushes. The scarab on his staff went really well, but the photos don't really catch it.
I imagine this frog leading a Green Power rally, then inciting the frogs to slay any non-amphibian in their site. I think I counted 5 species in what he is holding or wearing. He's a villainous slimeball.
