Re: Lawrence Fishburne is Nick Fury

Alun » Mar 2 '15

Please forgive the reference in the topic.  Thought it was humorous when I wrote it but probably get old really quick.

 

Anyway, not Lawrence but Samuel L Jackson (obviously) as Nick Fury from the excellent range of Dragon kits.  Fancied doing something a bit quicker than the current Igor kit, which I`ve got myself a bit unnecessarily bogged down with. Actually slightly nervous about this as there is so much black in his clothing.  So did a little research and dropped Pete an email.  Got some great advice and set about working on it.

 

Anyway, first off assembly and really simple. The coat is separate and can be removed and the arms fit in over this.  So the whole thing can all come apart really cleanly for painting.


Pictures below are with absolutely no paint on it,. and just the plain vinyl.








So made a start on the painting.  The most interesting piece of advice I read was not to actually use black for anything.  So started with a dark brown for the coat and dark grey for the suit.






Coat isn`t actually this brown but the artificial lighting seems to make it look more brown to the camera.


Coat had several washes of black over it, with more going into the folds of the coat.


Face as also been blocked in with an appropriate shade.






Then the suit has been drybrushed a little to bring out the contours a bit. Straps on the suit also painted in now (using black-with the eye patch this is the only bits that are actually black).




Face was given a wash with red and then a light brushing to bring out the contours.  Don`t want to overwork it as bit nervous about screwing it up and it looks alright at the moment.




Not come out well in the photos but there is some extra red around the scarring. Eyeball blocked in for now awaiting final painting.


Plan is to give the coat a satin finish, finish the eye and call it done.


I`m not the greatest figure painter but think it came out pretty well (although obviously not finished yet).


Any feedback appreciated!!

Rather nice job there Alun. The leather coat looks great.
Did you find the skin tone article helpful?, the facial sculpt of Mr Jackson is really good isn`t it?

Gives an idea for the shades of black, look at the nick fury poster and compare the coat to the body suit he`s wearing....

Wasn`t Hawkeye going to be done by Dragon? Would be good though to have the full set!

Should have been sorting out the competition entries but instead just did a little tidying up on Nick and finished off painting.




Just need to get some get some good pictures and happy to call him done.  Really pleased with how he`s turned out and how quickly he got finished off.  Literally 3 sessions (1 of which was really short).


Think it`s a pretty good match to the poster for Ultron Pete has linked to with the dark grey jumpsuit:




Thanks to Pete for his advice.  He may yet make a figure painter out of me... ;)


Need to finish Igor but tempted by another figure kit first as they`re such a blast and this looks like it should be fun.

Nick looks great Alun, really well done on the colour tones.

I have the Rocket and Groot, hoping to do it for my daughter`s birthday in May, she loves those two.

Probably should get on with it really.
