Miniature Showcase

Giant Monster WIP

This guy has been a work in progress for a while. It took some time, but I finally finished the main body of this large monster miniature. I started off with a few different pieces and slowly painted them with the goal of bringing them together into a cohesive unit. That this coming together happened to coincide with the beginning of October is just a wonderful cherry on top.

With the outer belly complete, I could finally start putting the pieces together with super glue. I attached the outer belly first. The fit was a bit off but I am planning on rectifying any issues before project completion. The 3D effect of the hollow belly is just a horrifying, awesome touch of the macabre in this piece. I will be adding some flesh wash to a few of the belly people, as I call them, to add variety to the skin tones.

I was then, able to attach the torso to the legs that had already been attached to the base. I have to say, I was so happy with how this is coming along so far. The back portion of the miniature, where the back meets the loin cloth, had a sizable gap when gluing them together. I plan on rectifying this with some green stuff. I will use it to extend the belt and make a more seamless connection between the two pieces. Overall though, this went very well in terms of look and continuity of skin color throughout the different pieces.

The last piece I attached was the arm with the whip. It really brought the entire monster together. I love how it curls around the miniature, creating the illusion of motion. Every person in this, except the monster, look like they are having the worst time of it. The front of the belly does look a bit wonky, but I imagine it has to open somehow so it should look as if it can swing open and shut.

That might have been it, if not for the added effect of the fluorescent paint. I wanted to show it with everything brought together. It kind of reminds me of things like the dead lights from It. Even looking into them means you’re lost forever. I love how the light effect comes out through the mouth and eyes. In the belly, it looks like the lights are digesting the victims trapped inside. I still have more ideas for this thing so stay tuned! Happy Spooky Season!
