  1. Thanks John, thats what I was shooting for so pleased you think so Cheers noeyedears! Thanks Pete, its good being back (properly this time!) Thanks Will Appreciate it, and I agree about the gloss, think once I start adding slime and goo I'll gloss the whole thing for that "moist look" (copyright @Carts ) And just a quick update, I got the tentacle filling sanded down and painted over IMG_20190118_134552 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190118_134924 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So thats all covered over and forgotten about! Panic over And I got my tentacles for the flower glued in place IMG_20190118_134220 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I actually really like the green contrast, so much I was tempted to paint them green, but I think ill stick with purple for them, which is what I'll do next. Thanks for looking, more soon
  2. Woohoo! First update of 2019! I have been getting back in the shed and really enjoying this build again, not that I ever hated it but think I had a bit of burnout (just a bit!) So I did some more pigment work around the base, shading and colouring the tentacles and yellow growths IMG_20190107_133836 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190107_133914 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I finally got a new airbrush after my last one seized up, so I mixed up a dasrk blue and sprayed the edges of the flower buds and some of the tenmtacdles at random, then after that dried mixed up some purple and did the same thing (but kept the purple for the tentacles only) IMG_20190114_134511 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190114_134521 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190114_134544 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190114_134555 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190115_133520 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190115_133532 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190115_133549 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190115_134111 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190116_132154 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Oh and also I had a bit of a crack to repair, the tip of the large tentacle came off, so I epoxy glued it back in place and filled it with some squadsron IMG_20190115_132709 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190116_132556 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And also I rolled out some greenstuff for the tentacles in the middle of the large open flower, when its dry I'll paint them and get them in position. IMG_20190116_133502 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So overall pretty happy with that bit of work, the colours I added to the base with the airbrush are a bit more blatant than they show in the photos, and I'm glad i took the decision to not just rely on the pigments for shading and variation. Next up I'll get the tentacles painted and put in place, and sand down the bit of filler on the crack and paint over that too Thanks for looking, more soon

    Kallamity Briegel sniper mecha

    Ooo I love the Briegel, will enjoy this one! Already really like the mods to the head design, and that mossy base is great. From the photo it gives me a Studio Ghibli feel, like its a bit of ground lifted from Laputa!
  8. Cheers Pete, it is actually feeling like a relaxing hobby again now my mind is more clear! Brushing on pigments is always one of my zen moments :) Yes slime is the plan, and just to keep with the retro bright contrasting sci-fi colours, I'm actually going to use clear purple slime. And hell yeah drippy goo on his feet sounds like a great idea Sentry! I have been adding more pigments, after my next session I'll be sure to post an update, as always cheers for taking an interest guys!

    Pteras of the Helic Republic

    It looks amazing will! It's a real feast for the eyes, lots of cool details

    Robo-pterodactyl (Zoids Pteras)

    I agree about leaving it there, and the contrast. Its a really nice (pretentious hat on) juxtaposition (pretentious hat off) between the scenery, and the clean technological look of the zoid. I think its definitely hit that danger area where more weathering may just spoil it, I'm looking forward to final pics Will, this looks quality!
  11. Nice, love a bit of macross! Look forward to seeing that paint technique, it looks cool
