WIP of the Cave Bear from Bones IV's Prehistoric Expansion. I did not get this expansion so I recently picked up the Stone Giants and the Cave Bear from a gift certificate to Reaper Miniatures. When I saw this I had ear-marked this to do the base in a similar method to Frulla Krung's base. To achieve that I added the bark next to the integrated base as well as a pumice piece and then using baking soda and super glue I added the snow and ice. For Frulla's base I used the BSI Thin Insta-Cure super glue and baking soda. That made the ice easier to form over the rocks. I will prolly add that after painting as well. The base is built from cork with a plastic card (fake credit card sent in the mail) in between the top and bottom. It provides a nice rigidity to the cork. This Cave Bear will get a paint job of grays with a tan crescent under his chin and a tan snout. I've downloaded a ton of pictures of different bears to see where the colors shift along the bear to get a better color along the bear's length and over its head. Enjoy and Stay tuned.
So, after the paintjob Frulla Krung got earlier, mentioned in this thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67006-gadgetman-is-messing-about-with-paints/?p=1428362 I decided to re-do the mess and gave her a relaxing bath in the Pit of Regret... A few days later she was primed in Vallejo White Primer, and yesterday, I did another attempt... Skin colour is Warrior Flesh, and only a single layer. The big difference is that I this time used a flat 'drybrushing' brush instead of the usual pointed sable. (Kappel 'The Drybrusher', which I find a bit too soft for drybrushing, really) Yeah, it made a big difference... I've ordered a couple of filberts and stuff to experiment with. Her hair is Auburn Shadow, and yeah, it was a pain to get it into every nook and cranny. AAAAAAARGH! (There's a few spots still that I found today... ) That is how I left her yesterday evening... Here I have drybrushed in Carrottop Red. Yeah, of course the final had to be Highlight Orange. That axe was annoying me... So I filled the recessed area with Runic Purple. It should have been Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, but as I don't have that... yet... And here I have added a bit of Emerald Green to the pattern on the axe. That is as far as I got before the 'System Error: Tea not found' happened. I need to get started on her eyes soon. Then I need to decide on highlight/shade for her skin. Her clothes, what little there is, also need a bit of colour. Not much, but a little bit. (The jewel on her necklace and her bracelet will be green, though) I would like to completely fill the recesses on the axeblade(cover the purple and green) with a clear of some sort. Make it look glassy, really. It it possible to do that with a varnish, or should I try something else? EDIT: Fixed tags.
