It’s a month later now, early June, and I have finally finished the Sturgeon King model! I started this work in October of last year so this model has been nine months in the making. Can you believe it? I think PKKing painted his in two full weeks. But, the results must be satisfactory. This work just won the Gold medal in the Creatures and Alien category of the 2012 Western Canadian Regional Model Contest.
So, here are my final WIP photos. My last post showed that I was starting work on the human figure. The following pictures show some finishing results.
What follows are three different views of the human girl’s face and head.
And here she is in full relief.
The next task was to finish the elf face. This was a little different as her eyes are not open and she needed some eyelashes. These were made from the bristles of a paintbrush. They were individually picked up with tweezers and stuck to the eye, and trimmed to length with scissors.
And here are a few pictures of the finished elf girl.
And finally, once the little cute bunny-like animals are painted and the base is covered with modeling grass, we have a completed Sturgeon King.
It’s done! I will eventually take some studio photos with proper lighting and put some finished pictures in the gallery.
Thanks for viewing!
