My Worst Nightmare…. revisited

 

Revisited indeed. It never took me so long to complete a project. And honestly, it isn’t even finished now.
Not that I didn’t finish other stuff in the meantime, figures mainly, but still. This project has been on a stand still most of the time over a period of 3 (!) years. Life’s all about priorities, I guess .

Anyway, I am finally pretty close to finishing off this project. Nearly all elements are painted, and done.
Here’s the man-in –distress. Sort of completely sculpted.

And here’s the unpainted and temporarily assembled set up of the guy on his bike. Click on the images to enlarge!

And the man’s head in close up:

And here’s the painted version of it all. Still have to work a bit on the guys trousers and shoes and then start gluing the remaining parts together.

And then, the biggest challenge still to overcome…the wave. The water needs the most attention still: it needs more painting, mainly white foam and most of all, it needs more coats of acrylic gel. The top of the wave also needs additional work as it’s in a premature state right now.

Some of the accessories, painted and ready to go.

Obviously the shark needs to be properly embedded in the sea, and I am stil in doubt where the pelican will go.

To be continued……soon! (really)

Our webblog has been refurbished

After roughly 16 months we have re-installed our website. It took us a while to decide whether we should proceed with it or simply ditch the whole idea and post our work only on  social media. We decided to hang on to the website, or blog concept, after all. Although nothing really ever dissappears from the internet, we believe that eveything digital vanishes into oblivion rather fast, particularly on social media. So there you have it, our own website. Just like in the good old days, that aren´t even that long ago when you come to think of it.

Whatever reasons we have for making this website, we enjoyed building it and we hope that you enjoy viewing it.

A lot of the older work has been archived, and we have decided to focus on displaying only our latest work and some of our own favourites in the galleries.

We left the old blog posts intact as they contain some in-progress and step-step-by-step info you might find useful, and some in-progress articles are still relevant. Not sure if that’s a good thing though, as it means that the project still hasn’t been finished. Anyway…..

The intention is to use this blog also for show reports, to show you what’s on the workbench now and also to share other hobby related stuff with you that we think is worth sharing.

Enjoy viewing Stories in Miniature!

New bustes by Margot

New bustes by Margot

Margot has finished these bustes recently, the Necromancer and Wendat Warrior

front frontclose

The Wendat Warrior depicts a Huron Indian and was featured as it came in the box. The Necromancer buste was modified as the original piece has a rather chunky, ugly looking shoulder piece on the left that looked pretty much out of place, so it was replaced with GWS gosts.

Both bustes were done in oils over an acrylic base.

More images in the gallery, as usual

Margot’s Boudica finished “Odi et Amo”

Margot finished the Origen Art bust depicting the epic Celtic warrior queen Boudicea or Boudica. The piece is titled Odi et Amo (I hate and I love). Base colours were done in acrylics and the majority of the painting was done in oils. More images in the gallery, as usual

Boudica in progress

As I mentioned, Margot has been busy and still is.
One of the projects she’s working on right now is the Boudica bust, an epic miniature by Origen Art.
Sharing some in progress pictures seemed a good idea, so here we go:
