Hi guys/gals finally got Elvira finished,I bought this the day it came out,and started her about 10-12 days later(postage time from Cult tv to me)only able to work about 20 mins before my knee/leg irritation forces me to give up and I have to walk about a bit,I have used enamels mainly,all hand painted except for the couch which was airbrushed and an oil wash of burnt umber for the wood and airbrushed Tamiya Smoke over the pre-shaded legs to ive the impression of tights/stockings,
hope it meets up to your standards,
cheers,Gordon:thumbsup:

Nice work on your Elvira!
Your attention to detail is awesome. The wood parts on the couch look so real as does the shading on her neck and sternum areas,,,,nice job! The stockings are cool also, I've never seen a better painted kneecap:thumbsup:

Gordon.......that looks great! Nice shading and tones all round.

Question....is the white behind her head to represent a collar, or did you miss part of the hair painted black? I am unfamiliar with the kit, and was just curious.

I really like the details you did. I.E. - hands, pet, wood, etc..... Simply superb.

Thanks for posting and sharing.....Elvira LIVES!

Sincerely,
Scorp. :wave:

Thanks for pointing that out:thumbsup:I must have missed that when painting the hair before attaching it to the head,probably didnt think anyone would notice,
cheers,Gordon:wave:
thought I would get a brush and some black out......not getting a brush in there,it will have to stay as is,its not noticable.....how did you see that?
cheers,Gordon

You know Gordon, if you did decide to paint that area behind her head black you might dob on some liquid masking film over her neck first. That way if the brush slips you won't ruin your wonderful fleshtones.

Thanks guys for the input on my Elvira's cream bits::)I'm tempted not to touch her as under normal circumstance she wont have anybody scrutinies her as closely as I would expect from fellow modelers and its really not that noticeable,my wife(best critic I have)is happy that our normal circle of friends wont notice it(they dont notice me most of the time:jest:) and to be honest while my knees/legs are the way they are I dont have the confidence to tackle it at the moment even with a rock steady hand I have come to realize that the pain can peak when you least expect and with my luck..........
but keep the praise coming coming there is still plenty of room left for my head to swell a bit more:lol:
cheers,Gordon:thumbsup:

Gord,

Looks good. :thumbsup: I have found that pictures, especially digital pics, pick out flaws that the naked eye does not.

I have the kit but have not yet started it but will try and remember this area when I do get around to assembly. In the meantime, I will need to pre-paint the hair pieces on Black Widow before attaching them as Moebius has done the same thing with her, ie separate hair pieces.

Bill
