Finally finished my Dracula. Pretty much straight from the box. About the only thing I did to it was add texture on the outer edges of the rock wall and the inside of the door opening. I deviated from the paint color for the inside of the cape. Couldn't bring myself to make it purple, I went with a blood red satin look. All hand painted with a brush.

Very nice! I added some lighting effects to mine and will post some Halloween display pics, including Drac, soon. :thumbsup:

Works for me. Nice job! I like this kit a lot although I have not made much progress on mine. Your base is really well done too.

Thank you. People forget, the film was in black and white, but the stage play was in color. I did set design and props for a H.S. production of "The Passion of Dracula", we used a very vibrant color palette.

Whenever I see a build-up as nicely done as this, it makes me wish I were more of a Dracula fan. I particularly like the look in the first photo--the way the lighter colors of the stone wall act as a visual frame for the darker colors on the figure's clothing. Seriously strong work RSN!

I like the red inside the cape, I went with purple when I did mine but if I do another, I am going red too. You did a great job on getting the cape to fit the figure.

I am truly humbled by your words, thank you.

The cape is the tricky part! :thumbsup: To get the red, I first painted the inside flat black then dry brushed a few coats of white, making sure to get a lot of coverage but not lose the shadows in the folds, then I brushed on 3 coats of Clear Red. That gave it just the right shine to look a bit like satin.

Awesome!! I can't wait for the Drac and victim version!!
It should be nice. There are signs of that kit in this one. You can see the alternate hole for his feet plugged over, (I added a bit more texture to the floor to get rid of the slight circle from the mold cover!), and the alternate piece for his cape over his left arm is in there as well.
