Osugambit paints Cthulhu (very slowly)

Recommended Posts

Ok. So I'm going to start another WIP thread/painting diary. This time I'm going to start work on Cthulhu from the first Bones campaign. I will likely have things come up that I may have to stop and start but I will come back here when work resumes.

 

I still haven't finished the eyes from my bush (doh).

 

Today I started trying to get some of the basecoating done. As I started I realized that I had done a poor job with a couple mold lines and filling the gap between body and tail. So a lot of the work today was done trying to smooth this out without taking out the scalpel. And for that I used some of both liquid green stuff and reaper brush on sealant. It has helped a lot but I may still have to go over once or twice more.

 

So here is a very early and raw WIP. Not even done basecoating.

 

Also Cthulhu is so big I can't take a full pic in the photo box I have here so most Of the pics will likely be close ups of different areas this time.

 

Thanks for looking and comments and criticisms are always welcome!

One step forward, two steps back...

 

So I was working on the wings and was really liking the progress.  At first my plan for the big guy was just kind high tabletop standard.  but I was getting so much done today and having a good time doing it so I decided I might end up pushing it as far as I can and try to make a display piece eventually.  However, I didn't put a ton of time into prepping him, and therefore there were several pretty bad mold lines left from prep.  So I decided to go ahead and clean those up.  so here is a little work on the wings, and several steps back removing the mold lines.  

 

Edit - crap forgot to rotate the pics,  fixed now
