In which we meet the third of my Brides of the Vampyre, and a very unpleasant Nosferatu. "Dracula's America" once again tempted me to get the Red Hand Coven 3-pack solely on the strength of the Broodsire, Max Orlok here. This spindly, long-clawed bloodsucker with the face of a naked mole rat is a particularly perfect horror. Very simple paint job too, mostly Vampiric Flesh and GW Snakebite Leather. What an expression! what body language! this is a bad shot, but a good nod to the Murnau film. More: You will notice I got the column from 01350, Siobhana, painted up in greenish marble, with a couple of bats attached. Here is 01643, the Ghost of Christmas Present, playing the role of a Bride of the Vampyre. More work with sheer effects on this lady, whose dress is very form-fitting indeed in places. Here are the three Brides, each neatly color-coded. We have seen Jahenna (02632) and Siobhana (01350) before. I gave them a bit of a touch-up using the advice given on Siobhana's post. The difference is minor but definitely in the direction of improvement. And the whole horrible crew!
Classic Horror Dracula (03248)
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: Painting
Been working on a series of monster hunters from the Early Modern Era, and of course that means we need early modern monsters! The Vampire, of course, is one of the most versatile classics. Polidori, the "Varney" authors, LeFanu, and Stoker popularized the concept and promoted the bloated varcolac or shambling nach-zerer to the aristocracy. The variety is almost infinite, but nowadays we expect them to be parasitic, narcissistic, obsessive, entitled, compelling, rule-bound, and of course, literally blood-thirsty. Here's one such vampire, the beautiful Jahenna. Alluring, beguiling, deceptive. This is one of the crispest, cleanest sculpts I've encountered with regard to hands and hair. The conveniently-non-cruciform gravestone she's sitting on bears the legend "Mircalla RIP," a nod to LeFanu's "Carmilla" (source of the Vampire Anagram trope). The dress is very Jessica Rabbit-esque and my first attempt at fabric semitranslucency. Could probably have pushed those highlights more. Matthias the Twisted, on the other hand, is a very different flavor of vampire. He gets the full Murnau/Schreck treatment. Grotesquerie, disfigurement, corruption, contagion. An asymmetric bogey, horrific, athirst, more rat than bat or wolf. I do love the adorable little plague rats around and on him.
02632 - Jahenna, Vampire
TheOldGuard posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingGreetings! I've had a couple of half finished Reaper vampires waiting in the (bat) wings for the best part of last year so I thought it was about time that I finished them off...... The first one, presented here, is Jahenna (the other one is Gastaroth). I've always wanted to have a go at painting sheer clothing so this is my first attempt at that. This mini, whilst being fully clothed, is somewhat sultry so I thought I'd better post external pics: Jahenna front Jahenna front left Jahenna rear left Jahenna rear Jahenna rear right Jahenna front right Comments are always welcome, thanks for looking!
