1/6 Spacebase 2000 Inspired Astronaut Sculpt

I reckon that suit colour will look even more amazing against the base once it's painted. What colours are you going to go for for the tentacles ? I'm guessing green but as its an alien life form the world is your oyster for that

Cheers Pete! Yeah I've actually given the plant colour a lot of thought, im a little torn.

Green would be good because it makes it obvious they are alien plants and its a good base colour to make the inner parts really stand out with colour.

But i do really want to make them very alien with a garish colour, im currently thinking im going to do them blue, and maybe airbrush on some darker blue (or some contrasting orange??) patterns to the petals and tentacles with purple blood/slime oozing all over.

RIGHT!!!! Im back on this!

 

Its been a crazy few weeks at work with a HUGE print job that had sapped all my energy used for modelling, but all the stress is gone so I can dip my toe back in the calming modeling water.

 

I wanted to fill some of the annoying little cracks here and there first just so thats done and I can touch up the base colour, so I slapped on some squadron white

And then after a bit of sanding with some 180 grit I retouched it all up

I really want to get the arm computer sorted to, so at work in illustrator I designed the little screen for it, it looks big here obviously but it will be pretty weeny on his arm so may lose some of the details. Tried to keep it retro as possible, and you cant beat the keypunch font for that!

This will be printed onto clear vinyl in reverse and stuck on the inside of the clear arm computer bit to give it a bit of depth like a proper monitor, I'll spray the back of it with some white just to diffuse the light a bit too.

 

So next up I'm finally getting a chance to get some primer and paint so I can start the arm computer and also start getting the base painted in its initial blue colour.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

"It  makes you nostalgic for the future"

Cheers Andy!

I really like that saying, its like how the future of the 60s/70's was exciting, vibrant and full of adventure. 

Whereas the future now is often shown as dark and dystopic and makes you feel fear rather than excitement!

We had Dan Dare, TV21 and Tomorrows world.

And now we have Cyber punk, Ghost in the shell and the net. 

Hmm. Actually I like both ends of the scale.

 

And, look what I found out there...

Every little detail makes this more like something from the works of the great Chris Foss rendered in to 3D.

Truly beautiful.

Cool! I love the cover. Hmm, a spaceman shooting a laser at tentacles? Seems familiar but cant put my finger on it... :lol:
