"Drop at will"

 

Yeah, this is where I keep all my stuff, but I gotta nuke that thing from orbit, just to be sure.

This looks scary fun.  I'd be afraid to try something like this with multiple bones, but I do love the originality of what you get.  Now it just needs a victim.  You know, for scale. :poke:

Like I mentioned in the first post, I made it at Reapercon, in the 'converting Bones' class. They have a big basket full of Bones parts, give you some glue and a knife/cutters, and you can go to town! If you ever go to Reapercon, give it a try; the class is a LOT of fun.

 

I did a little work on it last night, nothing picture worthy, just a lot of gap filling with Green Stuff.

Ok, opinion time!

Keep going with the paving stones (the cardboard), or rip em off?

 

I had originally envisioned this thing climbing over the rubble like this:

...or does it work better this way?

Thank you!

 

Keep in mind that I'm going to be cutting and repositioning some or all of the limbs as needed.

He's super adorable! :wub::wub::wub:

 

I thiiiiink I like the second pose, but I'd need to see a front view of the original pose to tell you for sure. The second one may only look more dynamic because we see him coming straight for us.

 

As for the tiles, I like them. I would make them more broken and rubble-y as you go though.

What an endearing smile! I like the first "over the top, Lads" pose. Rising out of the ruins just seems more like the Monster thing to do.

      Well, at least he didn't end up on my shelf of shame.  Some days my eyes and hands just aren't up to the job.  I also learned today that blending metallics is really hard.  Much more practice is needed.  I am pleased with the way the lighting effect worked out, though.

      This was my favorite project of 2017 due to how much I pushed my abilities in creating it. It was my first major conversion of this sort, first time doing texture, first major use of OSL, and first Sci Fi base built fully from scratch. So lots of firsts with this one. Those of you who followed my WIP thread know what I went through with this one;  the OSL dilemma, redoing the base, and sculpting new hands at the last minute. In all I am proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone and I cannot give enough thanks to those who posted in the WIP thread, your encouragement gave me the push that I needed.
       
      So this conversion is the result of critique I received at ReaperCon 2016 regarding my Open entry, it was to up the difficulty of my conversions. When I got home I went through the Reaper web store and found minis that I call "blank slates", ones that I felt would be a good base for multiple conversions. I found a few that sparked an idea but the one that I got stuck on was Anirion and how he would make the perfect Jedi. So he was the project I choose for my ReaperCon 2017 Open entry but I made myself focus on having fun with it and not worrying about it being perfect. When I was finished, I was extremely happy with the results but I knew that there were somethings that could be better. Knowing that, I was extremely surprised to find that I got a gold medal in Open and blown away when it was announced that I got the Open Silver Sophie. So again thank you to everyone who gave me feedback in the WIP thread.
       
      WIP thread: Wizard of a Different Sort: Anirion Conversion
       
      Conversion breakdown:
      -Reshaped hood and sleeves
      -Smoothed out cloak to remove border
      -Removed staff and bag?
      -Repositioned arms 
      -Added light saber out of styrene and metal piece
      -Added some strands of hair
      -Resculpted hands

      I speed painted these zombies probably a month ago, I just haven't been in the mood to take pictures or hobby since I finished 'em. Well, I had a pretty good day yesterday, and I think my mojo might be back, so you get some pictures.
       
      I think I spent about 7 hours on them as a group, and they're painted to a tabletop level. Thanks for looking.
