Halloween always gets my mind going with spooky thoughts...rather like the rest of the year, but more so.
Now I have been making Pumpkinhead/Jack O'Lantern Folk for quite a while...here's an album of them:
Then I stumbled on this illustration on Pinterest, AND I had to try that sunny smile:
I was fairly pleased with the test results:
I did a second one with what I had learned from the first:
...with a closer look:
The second is closer to the size of the Reaper Jack O'Lanterns that I usually use for the Pumpkinheads. The first is a bit larger. I may wind up using a GW Orc torso
like this one from 2017:
The legs are GW Zombie legs.
This another possibility:
OH THE POSSIBILITIES!
I found a wonderfully bizarre illustration of an armored Rhino by James Christensen. It is just my kind of Beasty:
AND I just happened to have a toy Rhino grazing in The Vault:
SO I started working on making my own version of the illustration:
At this point the green stuff work is done with the exception of some touch ups & embellishments:
The Rhino in his prime...so to speak:
I thought I would be more motivated to finish painting the Big Guy if I post here as well as in The Last Hurrah Thread...I have a lot of strange thoughts.
Today I started adding some colors to the base. Photos are likely...sometime or other.
SO I have been hoping to get Enigma's Oz-zuh moon Face; AND I have been waiting almost patiently for a restock of Enigma at C.M.o.N..
Realizing that I just might not live long enough to see that happen I decided to make my own version of the Guy. This is what theirs looks
This is my version:
Oz in the Spooky Woods:
I still would like to do Enigma's, but I am pleased with my own attempt...it might be a lack of taste issue.
Our Own Glitterwolf posted a photo in my Last Hurrah Thread:
I loved it. I knew I would have to make a version of my own (there were some liberties taken...a lot of liberties).
Once more I had the base all ready for her...or some other hapless miniature. AND here is the result:
There you go.
I need more Mushrooms; the sort with faces & attitudes or, rather, I NEED to make some more. I do have some all painted up & ready to add that certain touch of NUTS to a base of vignette:
...AND I haven't quite run out of the Ready-To-Paint Types:
...but I NEED to make more nonetheless; it IS an addiction without a twelve step program. All that aside, I thought I'd do a log of the development of various strains of Mushroom. Stumps, et al. This is the first batch in the "dolly" stage:
While I'm not planning on this being a How-To-Make-Mushrooms thread, you might get the idea of how it's done as I go along...or not.
