Hi

Haven't gotten very far yet on this 54mm Fankenstein's monster by Andrea. Primed the figure with automotive primer. Painted the woodenfloor and door, in oil's over enamels. The stonework is just an acrylics wash'n'drybrush over the grey primer.

Hi John
Yes, the head definitely looks like Karlof.

Started on the eyes a few minutes ago.

Viva...

Andrea has always managed to make the heads of their "hollywood" based figures very much alike the real actors...
I'm painting the Virtual fighter (which is a fancy name for the Neo character in the blockbuster Matrix) and it's almost a photograph of Keanu's face...

Jesper, that figure is one of my next "must have"... I'll follow your work very closely, for inspiration!! Looking good so far!! Probably, I would lighten up a little (just a little) the color of the wood, but that's just my opinion...
Keep up the good work!

See yaa
