Today i finished the War for chicken island starter from Kickstarter. This has been one of the wierdest and most exciting commissions i've had in a long time. With a recent slew of "realistic" commissions and even some that you might consider "hyper naturalistic" i've been slow to the table but with these random and cartoony models i've managed to really flex my painting muscles and get some really fun painting done.
My fave from above is the guy with the muscles, he really shines as a character and i added a little tattoo on his arm that says "mom" and an anchor.
Despite howbasic the above paint jobs could have been i decided to use a mix of browns and silvers and painting techniques so as to give thme some individuality. Some of these got flat coats and inks with lighter lifts while others got layered drybrushes and wet brush techniques to simulate gashes and scuffs on the stone, wood and metal. I particularly enjoyed painting the dragon chicken who i painted using a mix of red and silver paint that created a really curious tone across the model, almost colored metal.
This slide is almost all favorites to, i particularly like the "god of war" kratos and the "not skeletor". I felt like i nailed the purple on that one.
In this one it's gotta be the terminator chicken...i mean come on...a terminator chicken.
The big boss models (i presume) came out a lot better than expected. Generally painting 3D printed stuff can be hit and miss, print lines can be very distracting but i personally enjoyed layering on slightly thicker layers of paint on these, adding depth and also covering some of those lines as i went along.
