I saw amazing French sculptor Gautier Giroud posting up WIP pics of this amazing bust and knew I just HAD to have him, picked him up from Cinemodeles-creations. He's jumped up in my queue today while I'm home from work on a personal day.

Here's the the cast in resin pieces, held together by some blue tack so I could take the pics of the resin -

I've used my airbrush for the first time today, primed up Deadpool and 4 giants (the giants first to get the hang of the airbrush).

Here's where he's at now -

I drilled holes in his nose so that I can do the smoke sniffing scene as it's meant to be from the movie, which I'll probably use cotton or some other material to complete the effect.

 

Going to get started on some painting of him now.

Nice!

 

Batting for stuffing quilts, pillows, and such makes superior smoke in my experience fro building markers for Flames of War...

 

How do you like the air brush vs brush on primer?????

 

Are you going to base coat him with the Airbrush as well????

Oh good idea!

 

It's very nice, I'm obviously still trying to get the hang of it. For now I'm just going to use primer through the airbrush, it laid down a nice even coat as you can see, but it's going to take some getting used to for me. I'll do the rest of him by brush and practice on bones figures for other colors and laying down basecoats and whatnot.

Here's where I'm at now, I started out with Reaper Gothic Crimson and then mixed it with some Liquitex Heavy Body Napthol Crimson which is a very bright red. The brightest red is straight up Napthol Crimson, I'll add some reaper clear over the reds that need to be even brighter. Next up are painting the blacks, which are always difficult to do just right.

Pretty shade of red!!! Love this bust btw! Excited to see what you do with it.

Thanks!

 

I'm really liking these Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics, they come in tubes, are very thick, but are verrrrry silky smooth and easy to move around on the figure. I saw Francesco Farabi using these types of paints and getting excellent results, so decided to use a couple coupons and pick some up at Michael's over a couple of weeks.

This bust is awesome!

 

I almost bought this and the "Mini Jones" model from them, but there was a minimum of two for the Mini Jones model, which is a little odd.

I'm getting pretty close to done actually. This is a very basic color scheme not too much going on, not too many details to work out.

 

A few touch-ups with the reds, the white eyes, the metallics for the guns, and the smoke from the guns to the nostrils.

What would have been fun with this one is to take the smoke generator from a model train and build into the base, then pipe the smoke up into the guns. 

But the way he holds his arms would make for a rather painful conversion job. Or possibly making recasts using Instamold and placing thinwalled tubing in the new casts.

Add a small suction pump to suck in air through his nostrils...

Oh yeah that'd be cool too, I don't have the parts or know how for something like that tho. 

 

 

A quick bit about the guns- i used the "opaque black" that came with my Grex airbrush for all the black. The guns I highlighted with P3 Pig Iron to give the used look to.

      This is the "Soul Stealer" bust from Artisan Guild's welcome pack on patreon. I printed it on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
      This might be the first bust I have ever painted, not counting an Orc bust from the very early days of Forge World that I started but never finished and sold off at some point in the distant past (oh, the Folly of Youth).


      So why this newfound fascination for busts? I hear you ask.

      Well, it's the RCL again. "Bust" is a quarterly category, and since Reaper only make a very few busts, none of which are readily available at the moment (there will be a few released after Bones 5 fulfills later this year), the fine folks at Reaper have decreed that bust entries are not limited to Reaper product.

      Did I mention that the RCL has been a fun way to choose what to paint? It really helps to keep things fresh and to motivate to finish the pieces I start. And now also to paint other stuff than I usually would.

      I do not buy busts as they are generally outside my scope of interest. However, I do own one or two busts as .stl-files that have been parts of patreon bundles.
      And with such an extensive library of files at hand, once I decide to do one, it does not take long to make supports and print one off.

      But what to choose? Tentacle-face or a human face?


      Do you want to know more?

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      I still don't have a great photography setup, so despite efforts, this is fairly washed out (pinks in the cheeks aren't as apparent as IRL, and the hair is dulled in the photos). But until I can get figures in for a photoshoot with a friend, these will do. Sloppy selfie with the inspiration for the figure setup, before I try to dye my hair back to normal. Been teal for 9 months now, and I miss my blonde.
      I painted the figure roughly as myself, instead of with ideal artistic combinations. The patch on the back isn't really the coolest, but that's our work group's logo (and a diagram of part of my PhD research). So it is a personal design, distinctly not artistic. Also dragon instead of weasel.... heh.
      Project was part of the Season 3 for the Vancouver Mini Painting Club
       
      TADA.
