50241: Sparg, Illyrian Agent by Cyr

Recommended Posts

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.

Very cool!  Going to try to freehand anything on the calculator/data pad screen?

I might try a little freehand on the calculator, and perhaps on the sweater. Will see how it goes and if I have more coughing episodes.

Colored and slightly shaded the sweater's trim. Based the belt but not accessories. Shaded the jeans. Started shading the coat.

Very cool... and thoughtful... I can't say that I've ever gotten anything like that at all for repairing computers!

He has repaired my computer for free, dealt with Samsung being lame on hard drive warrenty on my behalf, backed up all my data, and let me use his spare laptop hard drive in the meantime. I figure he's earned it!

Update! 

Jacket is shaded. Belt junk done. Pants shaded. Boots base coated. Hair shaded. He's detached. When boots are done he'll get glued.

Alrighty, he is on his clear base. The globes are base coated. The shoes are done. The calculator is complete. The pistol has base and first wash done, but is going to get more shading. Almost complete! 

 

Perhaps the boots could have more highlighting done, but I want it very obvious that the gloves and boots are black while the coat is gray. I think I hit that goal alright.

      So, I got this pretty cool figure a few years ago at my first Reapercon.

       
      I don't think I've ever seen him painted up, so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'll be bringing him to this year's 'con.
       
      The base on the figure was slightly miscast, so I removed it and attached the figure to an urban rubble base ('old factory' by Basicks).
       
      His pants are painted up in an WW2 German 'ambush pattern' camouflage scheme.
       
      Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I decided to try some freehand tattoos on him. I'm doing something vaguely reminiscent of the tribal tattoos that George Clooney's character had in From Dusk 'Till Dawn.  In the movie the tats were on his left arm; I'm doing them on the right 'cause there's more room there. I also added a word tattooed onto the fingers of his left hand.
       
      ....and that's where I'm stuck. I know I need to try to do something to make 'em look they're under the skin, not just painted on top of it, but I'm not sure what/how to do it...I tried what I thought was a light wash; that ended up looking terrible. I ended up repainting his arm, it was that bad. (On the plus side, I think the second version of the tats looks better.)
       
      So please let me know what you think, and any advice would be great;y appreciated.

      Bug Spray from Bombshell Babes minis.  Think maybe need to do some more wet gooey look on the base.   Not 100% happy with it atm.  Is missing that...something.

      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.
