Some quick work to get these on the table. They look good at arm's length, but a lot of the highlights are really rough, etc. I'm quite pleased with the eyes, as they were very quickly done and worked on the first go. I do need to clean up the bases a bit, add a little flock or something; I'll eventually do that with a batch of other tabletop figs.
These are maybe the fifth or so figures I've painted of the Bones Black material. I like it a bunch, it's easier to deal with in pretty much every way than regular Bonesium, with the possible exception of mass material removal. Mold line cleanup is almost like working with metal, and the plastic is far less hydrophobic than regular Bonesium (note: "less hydrophobic" is not the same as "not hydrophobic").
Hi all. I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now. For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest. I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure. I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere. The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh. I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black. I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass . So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted. Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much. Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.
