The title, yet boring, is quite revealing. A friend handed me this mini some time ago and I wanted to paint it since then. This week, on the verge of the Stranger Things Season Two release, I felt the itch more than ever, so I had to spill some paint on it.
|So Season One|
I wanted a colourful approach, far from any lizard, earthy looking. The blue/green skin was the point of start (different combinations of Vallejo black green and lighter shades of blue), and then I thought purple would be a nice colour for a change, instead of the classical creamy tones I always use for reptile bellies.
|Move it, move it, shake it, shake it|
The lights on purple were made by adding Vallejo dark flesh, and it worked better than expected. I rejected the idea of reptilian eyes, as I wanted something more supernatural, Demogorgon being a demon prince and so. Blue works nice for that, I feel more comfortable with it than red; reflected light and red glowing objects is something I still have to practise, as I only get the looking of strawberry chewing gum flooding everything. Blue is nice, and its coldness suits the mini.
|'This dungeon will be easy, you said. We'll talk later, sisters'|
The mini belonged of course to the old Grenadier ranges, but is now released by Mirliton. It's been a refreshing stop after the civilian mob, quite useful to reset my brains and start over new stuff.
I'm now looking forward to Stranger Things Season Two, but for now this is it. Enjoy and see you upside down!
