Two small kits I just finished up for Wonderfest. Love the sculpt on both. Added some gray bars to the Lady Frankenstein kit to keep it a
little more "general audience" viewable.

Great job on both!

If you want to keep this thread in this forum...I'd say it needs more cover up. Think like a young kid...you'll see what I mean!

Fantastic detail and shading!:thumbsup:

The eyes on both kits are outstanding!!!

Good luck at Wonderfest with these if you enter them!

Phant',

Great work all around. I think you'd be better off to post Lady F on the Adult Themed Modeling forum, where you wouldn't have needed to apply any mosaics. Your handling of her shaved hair is particularly impressive.

I have to say, I'm not crazy about the pattern of the sutures the sculptor created. They don't make a whole lot of sense if you consider what would be exposed when the areas were opened. And why the staple on the side of her head, where there are no incisions? Mind you, none of this carping has any bearing on your paint job. :thumbsup:

Excellent work! Concerning its appropriateness for the forum, does anyone less the 21 visit this site? Less than 50?

LOL, it is likely very few people on here are less than 30 and more likely over 50! Those both are fantastic paint jobs. How big are they? Now I know I have no chance at the Fest! Both sculpts are great too and whether 21 or over rated or not and while an excellent sculpt those gory things aren't my cup of tea. But as I said, the paint jobs and the sculpts themselves are excellent and highly detailed even if not technically correct for the lady as Mark noticed!

Thanks for the comments, all! I put a lot of time into the paintwork on these; had a bit of a score to settle at Wonderfest. We'll see how it all pans out this year.;)

As for the paints used, it's mostly Freestyle paints by Life Tone (my favorite airbrush paints, hands down), and Testors Acryl paints. I also finished the skin tones with chalk pastels.

And I hope the gray bars are sufficient coverage. Again, please let me know if it's still too much, and I'll gladly remove the images. I don't want to awaken any beasts!;)

:jest: mcdee, you're a man after my own heart.:dude:

Oh, and Chris, it's not specifically touted as an Angelina based likeness, but I'd be awfully surprised if the sculptor wasn't using her as inspiration for the figure. I mean, look at those lips!;)

I love the Frankenchick, but have to agree with the others, that the sculptor could have done better with the stitching layout. I would have preferred the typical "y" incision for the chest. I absolutely love the subtle bruising, veining and skin tones you used. :thumbsup:

Great work! I have that vampire elder in my TBB pile, and it's schweet! Love the Lady Frankenstein, too...same sculptor, I assume? I have several of his pieces.

The painting is, of course, awesome. But the expression on her face tells a secret story. I don't know WHAT, but it's really creepy and realistic.........

It just struck me, the first bust reminds me of the Ferengi Grand Nagus. I loved his character on DS9 and there is definitely a strong resemblance. I would bet maybe the sculptor got some of his ideas from the DS9 character. Again excellent sculpts and fantastic paint jobs.

Well, these two took Bronze Medals at Wonderfest. Was hoping for a Silver, but.... them's the breaks, I guess. I really wish I knew what kept them from scoring higher.

Anyway, thanks for the comments, all. OKC mike, glad you liked the veins and bruising! I did a bit of research on what a body looks like after that kind of major surgery. Man, the bruising can get crazy....

Deadmanincfan, the pieces are actually by two different sculptors; the Frankenstein piece is by a Japanese artist, while the Vampyr is from the U.S.

kdaracal, my wife said the same thing about the Frankenstein piece! She felt it was very sad; that underlying feeling was definitely present in my mind while I was painting it.

rkoenn, I do believe you're right! Very strong resemblance, indeed!

Thanks again!

I saw them at the Fest and recognized them immediately. Glad to see you got medals, I only got merits! LOL They were better in person and I agree about the female Frankenstein picture but it is still too gory for my collection and tastes.

I have the Vampyr bust as well as several other pieces by the same sculptor...he's an amazing talent. Would you happen to know where I might be able to obtain a copy of the Lady Frankenstein bust?
