Re: Peter Cushing `Twins Of Evil` resin figure

Couple of updated pics of 1/12 resin Peter Cushing from Hammer`s `Twins Of Evil`. Base is pretty much completed whilst figure has basic black vallejo colourscheme and skintone. 

I`m unsure regarding drybrushing the figure (boxart doesn`t) but I`m thinking the clothing looks too `pristine` despite dullcote.

Missing is a large cleaver in one hand and one of the unfortunate Twins head in the other!.

Plenty still to do (some air bubbles in face for a start).

coming along nicely.. so you going for some shading and drybrushing on the clothing?  I take it you have the missing cleaver and head?

 

Keen to see how you get on with the face

I think I`m going to have to do something with it- been a long time since I did a figure this size and I`m little nervous as to how to approach it.

Cleaver and head all present and correct.

The face is a worry- god knows how many youtube `painting model figure faces` I`ve sat through!

Very nice figure! Model`s not too bad either. :-)


My Predator kit gets hoiked out of its box every now and then for a perusal and a thought or two about starting it, at which point I sigh deeply and put him back.

Got an Alien kit like that. Ten years ago I glued one taloned hand to its arm and that was it. Don`t worry, we`ve all got skeletons (plus alien and predator) in the closet.

Never having seen the film I`m not sure as to the look of the source matter but going with the black as the base coat wouldn`t have been the way I`d go with it. I`d have gone a very dark almost black grey which you could then shade with a black to get some shadows in the folds of the clothing then you could drybrush on some highlights, again with a shades of the dark greys.

 

Sorry for interrupting.....

Hi Pete- your not interrupting.

I`m gonna work dark to light and hopefully highlight the ruffles/folds with a black grey. I`m conscious that the character in the film was clearly garbed in a menacing 19th Century black so I`ll take on board your advice and work the other way round if that makes sense. 

Hopefully if I keep the mix thin enough the black should still remain prominent.

If there`s no more updates then it hasn`t worked and a) its in the bin, and b) I`ve joined a fly fishing forum.

you cauld always work dark to light as you suggested and if the contrast is too much give the whole thing aq black wash over the top to blend it back a little.. used this method in the past and it works pretty well as you can really build up the shades before blending..

 

are you gonna try for different shades and deapths of blacks for the different clothing materials?  tricky but could look good.. those gloves for instance, are they supposed to be leather along with the boots? you could get away with a lot less shading and a good satin or gloss varnish on those and keep the rest more matt..

 

Or you could just do your own thing :-) Either way don`t you dare bin it :-D its too interesting a subject.

Bit of a close up of the face - need to cut back the washes a little around the forehead, no matter how thin the paint was the lips looked too red for the figure so just left it very light in the end as Cushing had a very pallid/pale look in the movie. There`s a couple of drops of poly cement in the eyes to give it some life.

Found it very difficult to do- its not great- but I`ll go back to it.

Not a bad start mate, the flesh colour is good but the darker pink areas do need toning down a bit. Try blending them in with some chalk pastels or failing that some pigment powders, you`ll get a much smoother blend and transition with pastel than paint.

Keep at it, he`s looking good.
