Well, kinda of that :P.
Some time ago I painted this Knightmodels Batman for a friend:
|Criminals are a superstitious cowardly lot|
|You think |
|Subtle changes in heads and weapons|
|Darth Vader fans, their breath sounds cool|
|They look like the ones above but believe me, there are not two identical guys here|
I wish I could claim the idea of the chainsaw guy. I saw it on the internet and looked cool to me. Sorry, but I don't remember the blog (If by any chance you happen to read me, just tell me so I can credit you!)
|At this point of sculpting breathers, you begin to bend the limits of sanity|
Mission accomplished. I got a finished scenery element. Let's take the work from where we left it the other day.
First of all, I had to cut the plastic in order to avoid the so obvious quadrangular shape. Then I used cheap and easy papier-mâché technique to make it look more like a hill. These were the basics:
|It doesn't look too impressive, I know. Give some time|
I added the chapel floor and access stairs to the building. Once I got all this, I went for a more realistic approach. Using DAS plaster I got this:
|Now it looks like buried in snow|
|Winter is coming|
|Yeah, take it to the oven. A great idea|
Ehrm... No. Not that.
Well, it looks better in my mind. Don't worry, I'm working on it. Next step is avoiding the regular edges and transforming it into a more organic shape. Hopefully I'll have it totally finished for next post!
|I believe the statue concept suits well the chapel|
|Maybe too pretentious clock, but it fills that space and I don't have to paint another fresco|
|Problems with the finishing touches, but I'll be solving that|
The first step was taking it to pieces. That will allow painting it without any risk for the windshield as well as -even more important- painting that green upholstery in more natural colours:
|I forgot the windshield piece for this photo|
Don't let the pic mislead you, I sweated to get that motor piece. Not totally satisfied with the result, but that's all I can achieve, I'm afraid.
I used an old toy scuba tank from my childhood that I had strangely kept over the years. Man, this car is really handcraft made!
|Well, this begins to look what we were aiming for|
I could have done some additional work on the exhausts and the headlights, but that would bring some more difficulties when painting the model, something Keyan is doing himself, so we agreed to let it be just this way.
I'm eager to see the final result when he paints the model. Hope it is anytime soon!
