Update time! Actually got some shed time and am starting to really get my mojo back which feels seriously good!

 

Started by tidying up the blue tentacles around his left foot now that all the under colours are done, and also the large one going up to his hip (though the paints wet so its a little shiny and hard to see!)

Started getting the dark brown detail onto his other leg too, along with his foot, so still an unpainted tentacle for now.

And I decided to do his belt in brown too so I gave that a splash of paint

And I realised I still needed to paint the outer frame of the pipe detail on his gun arm so did that too

Then carried on with the brown paint on the thigh detail

Also got the arm joints done in the brown too to match with the knees, which I also got the orange onto as well as the hand bit

Then once the right foot paint was dry enough I got the remaining tentacle painted painted blue, so there is officially no primer gray left on him!

So thats where hes at for now, next I'll get the hand detail painted on him and tidy up some of what I did today where necessary.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Time for another update. Hada little shed time so I managed to get a bit more painting done

 

I started by giving the trim of his boots gunmetal grey

44829922354_9a602d1155_c.jpg20181023_134318 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

And I also painted the bit I missed on the top of his inner thigh brown, so thats all done now!

Got brown rim of the armor plate painted on his left hand

 

43737617560_e8b20b1382_c.jpg20181023_134329 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

And painted his other hand just so its done

I know I've been doing a lot on the figure, but I do want to get the base sorted, so I finally got round to getting going on the large flower thats going to sit underneath him

I know it looks really rough underneath, but you wont see the underside, which is also why it has none of the vein detail on it.

 

Also I gave the inner bits a good coat of the red

And the last thing I did was to give the rim of his forearm armor a brown paintjob too

Which I really like, ties all the brown together nicely and the armor is looking good, only other thing I think I'll do with paint colours is to give the little boxes on his flanks where the wires come out a coat of the dark red.

 

Next up I'll get the flower glued in place and start detailing it and the rest of the base.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Thanks Pete!

 

Got a bit more done on the base, I started by painting the inside of the shot flower red as thats supposed to be the insides you can see

Then it was time to glue the big flower in place, but before I did this I wanted to make sure it had good contact giving a strong bond. So I wanted to use greenstuff to mold into the base so it would create a solid base.

 

Greenstuff is very sticky of course so I laid down a polythene sandwhich bag first then squidged some greenstuff on the bottom

Then pushed it down onto the base to get a mould of its position pressed into it

Then when it dried I painted it blue and then used some ca glue to get it in place

Feel glad now thats in place, at least its in one piece now! I also made a start on using some pigments on the growths and roots in a small area to get a feel for it

 

45746967202_a191a8c7c4_c.jpg20181106_134333 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

So next up I'll continue with the pigments and make some tentacles for the inner part of the open flower.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)
