Well i finished the Hulk and these are the results, i repainted all the veins with a blueish green and applied a greenish yellow oil high light that seems to have added some punch i also painted the the toe nails finger nails and teeth to look very dirty, i painted his pants in light purple very close to the color seen in the comic books i think it needed this for contrast with all that green. Any and all comments welcome.

WHATTA???? Whooow!!! I really got scared when I opened the page!!! Looks Tremendous!!! My only comment may be about the hair. Needs to be blacker I guess. Looks as if the paint on it just dented away. By the way, may I ask what brand is this little good boy??

Thanks for your comments, i may try to brush on a transparent black to tone down the highlights in the hair i will consider it. The kit is from Koma designs it's 1/6 scale.

RV, he really is an awesome sight. I think you nailed everything about this fellow. I definetly agree that the purple paints add a dramatic impact as well. Great work! Cheers Kevin

Is there some object you could place to give it some scale? Looks fantastic

Thanks Kevin i really enjoyed painting this big guy, and Alan he is very big 1/6 scale, 13 inches tall by 13 inches wide at foot level or about 3 inches taller than a bottle of Corona beer, i am guessing he weighs about 3 lbs. Alan you can also check my gallery there is a pic in there with him next to a Corona.

That's simply amazing and beautifully executed, even down to the dirty teeth! Truly a stunning work of art!

Thanks James he did take awhile but i didn't want to rush him and make any bad mistakes, Thanks Peter i like the teeth to they were first painted in a light green acrylic which did not work well than i repainted them with Testors gloss white enamel and than i added some Windsor and Newton raw sienna oil paint in a streaked pattern.

Wow, he looks anger! :-) Do you pre or post shade when you paint large figures like this?

Thanks John, on this big guy i post shade its not to difficult because the shaded areas are so large its easy to get to with an airbrush and i like the heavy shadding effect on scifi stuff because it gives more of a raw gritty look, on my female figure i will sometimes pre and post shade but the post shade will be done very gently for a more subtle look on the ladies. With your skill you would have no trouble painting one of these kits if you decide to give it a try.

fantastic work, RV. Agree with all the comments above. Only thing I feel is a bit off are the veins. IMO they stand out a bit too unrealistically. I prefer the way you've done the tendons in his neck.

Thanks for all your comments guys, it seams some people like the veins some don't, i am going to leave the veins as is, to correct them to make them look more translucent i would have to mask around every vein and respray with the airbrush and even a small mistake could be a real big problem because the veins go through mid tones highlights and shadows, i will keep this in mind for the next one. Thanks again for the comments.

RV

Would you be interested in submitting pics of this fig for a possible Model on Display for the home page? The work is outstanding. Love the discoloration on the teeth, the accentuated veins, and just the overall work/shading on the skin and pants. Good stuff. If you're interested please shoot me an email. Thanks.

To Quote Keith Jackson: Whoa Nellie

Hey RV, your Hulk turned out just super. I don't have
any criticism of your fig. To me the Green high lights in
the hair work real well. . . But I'll admit I take a more
artistic view of things, more of an over the top approach.

There is so much lovely shading and blending here
and a lot of tonal variation as in the purple britches. I
can see a lot of different colors in the purple, etc. Just
first class work and since this big bad boy is sooooo
big! Aw Johnny, how big is it. . . it was a task that took
a lot of time to pull it off.

Hokay now. If my Rancor fig from Star Wars Return of
the Jedi comes out just half that good, I will be really
happy.

Oh yes, Carona beer? . . . with a wedge of Lime? Ah . . .
it woiks fer me, mate. But my favorite is a cold Hiney.

Thanks Rick a figure this size does take awhile to complete and a lot of paint, the painting of the pants went smoothly and as you said several tones were used but my favorite color for shading is transparent black it blends shadows very nice, i am always glad to get comments positive or negative sometimes i will change stuff other times i don't but i listen to all comments and try to remember them for the next figure, i am always willing to learn and improve.

Did you ever think about offering one on eBay just to see how high of a demand and bid people will pay for it? Of course once you sell it, you HAVE to sell it.

Yes Peter i have thought of selling some of my figures thats just one of the reasons i started my website, in the near future i plan on trying to do some commission work to help pay for my hobby not looking to make a big profit just to pay for the website and make a little money on the side because few people get rich in this hobby. I think i will stay away from selling on Ebay for now.

Hi RV, haven't seen you for a while, good to catch up with you again.
Fantastic job on the Hulk, up to your usual standard.
It all looks great to me, the contrast between the green and purple is great.

Nice one,

Vic.

PS. I still haven't forgotten Josey Wales :-)
