Another week, another three figures complete. Above is the dark knight-type guy that I began last week. While originally I had done brushed metal for the entirety of the figure, I wasn’t really satisfied with its look as it was rather generic. Instead, I re-did the whole thing black and painted on red trim to give it a more interesting look. I think this is a lot better than the original, even if it was a bit troublesome painting in all the thin red lines. More within.
The only part I left with the original brushed metal was the shield, as it looked rather nice.
This was just a female ranger of some sort. She had a lot of minute detail that was demolished by the plastic molding process, so I just did large areas(like the boots) a single tone and shade. I think my big thing here was seeing how many different shades of brown I could use while keeping all areas distinct. The final count is four.
This marilith model was actually quite large(relatively) and complex. Because it was large, a lot of the small detail survived the molding process and was quite clearly defined. As a result, I actually spent a while getting in and working on the individual details. All of the scales were highlighted one-by-one, and the hair and weapons required careful work as well. I’m happy with how my color selections worked out. Because of its size and detail, this is one of the more impressive looking models from a distance; most others don’t reveal their detail until you’re really up close.
So! Three more out of the way. I now only have three left, and then I’ll be done with this set of office requests. Seventeen complete so far, which is quite a few. I have no idea what I’ll do after that, though it will probably be something that’s not plastic. I certainly have plenty of metal models laying around neglected…
