And the third miniature in the "black pants" series of figures I just finished up, another monk. This one is another old school wonder, a monk from the Grenadiers Specialist box, probably from the latter seventies-early eighties. This one is not only in my by now certainly infamous "black pants series", but also belongs to my comparison series, where I take something I painted aeons ago and painted up a new version. This one got the same skin tones as my Bruce Lee I recently painted, and the same pants as the other monkey, Bruce, and an upcoming black jacket on somebody. First the 21st century version, complete as of May 7, 2018: and then his grandpa, one I painted probably somewhere between 1982-1984 or earlier. I really should have kept better records as a young nerd, but I guess at that time I didn't figure I'd grow up to be an obsessive older nerd: and then here they are side by side: I think it's a pretty fun and enjoyable exercise these comparisons. I'd highly recommend it from anybody who is actually old enough to have been painting "way back when", whenever that way back when was, the seventies, eighties, or even 2016!
This one is the last of my black pants series, even though this one doesn't have black pants, but rather a black jacket. For this one, I used black for his jacket, and used the same skin tones with him as my other monk, the Hackmaster one sculpted by Jim Johnson. So here we go, a seemingly friendly cleric, perhaps turning undead, version from 2018 But if you look at him from behind, you'll see he's ready, just in case he gets a low roll of the dice: This is another I did what seems to be centuries ago, even though it was really probably only 35 years or so: And here they are together: I'm glad my parents kept my old figures and gave them back to me years ago. Always nice to go back down memory lane and looking at the art you did and how you've developed and changed over the years.
