I thought i would post a few pics of my Countess Karnstein model the figure is done but i still have to work on the stone base and the throne she sits on. The model is 1/6 scale resin and the finished kit is large and will stand about 12 inches tall. Any and all comments welcome.

Impressive. The skin tone, lips, eys--- all very very well done. The pendant and clothing are all very precisely painted, -- clean edges, ----quite an authentic figure. Not someone I would want to meet on a dark night :-).

Oils? Acrylic?

Well done --an excellent figure.

She must either have a very good dentist or a very discplined dental hygiene routine. Nice work on fleshing out the details of her hair and the muscle tones are subtly done. The facial shadows are subtle too and goes well with her being a vampire and not getting much sun time.

If there was anything I'd add would be a bit more shadows on the leather work but that's just minor. Well done.

Thanks Steve, the skin and leather outfit was painted in acrylics with my airbrush the hair was painted with oils by brush, thanks CK the pics don't show the shadows or highlights very well, in real life the model has much better contrast when i finish the throne and base i will take more close up pics to show the contrast. Thanks guys.

Your work never seizes to amaze me Robert. It's incredible what you can acchieve with your AB. Skintones and leather is just spot on. The brush painted hair looks grea as well.
What colors have you used for the skin?

Hi Rob,

Always a pleasure to see some of your work.
I was going to say how good the eyes are, but then so is the hair and the leather and the skin tones, in fact everything is amaizing especially on a figure this big.
You certainly haven't lost your touch.
keep up updated.

All the best

Vic

Thanks for all the nice comments guys, Jesper for the skin tones i have been mixing my own colors i start with white and add some burnt umber and a drop of red for the base or mid tones, than i mix at least one lighter tone with more white and one darker tone with more burnt umber for the shading. The airbrush is still my favorite tool. I am working on the base now and will post new pics when finished.

Robert my friend, what to say? She is SWEET! From the leather to the flesh tones she is quite the piece! I have missed seeing your work. Cheers Kevin

Nice one, look very realistic ( as realistic as a vampire can be ) !
I love the shading effect on the belly: it's light but effective!
