Looking very hard for any problems, the only thing I might see, check the edge of the cloak, where the red comes to the cream, a bit about half way down his left, looks maybe like the red is over a bit far, not absolutely straight. Tiny touch on that of the cream and I think it is the masterpiece I thought it would be.

I am being silly mind you. You really are pushing the limits of brilliance and especially with paints of a completely different breed.

Wow. I love that paintjob especially the sword and how the colors really work to give it that ghostly look. I've tried to do the same before and can never seem to get the colors and blending right, very impressive.

Thanks Cam. Not silly at all, that is the kind of thing I am after. I too noticed that fleck of red when I posted the picture. It has been expunged

I'm flattered you think so. Just goes to show that using Enamel paints are not an excuse for a poor paint-job.

Incidentally that green one (as opposed to any of the other possible green ones) is the colour of the wash I used on the ghosty bits.

I'm quite pleased at how the various contrasts have worked out. Can't say whether it was through luck or judgement though.

Thanks Jack. Glad you like it.

I spent a fair amount of time researching the right colour for ghosts and then looked at what colours were used. Except for the occasional monotone green one, I found that the most pleasing ones had a blue tint to the shadows and were highlighted with white.

So, I painted the shading in blue (3 layers of dry-brushing) with a highlight of white. Then washed over everything with a blue-green that I mixed by eye. A final highlight with white (with a tiny touch of green) and then used a dilute wash of blue (the original base colour) applied to some of the recesses to darken them if they needed it.

The few little touch ups are done and here's the final pictures. He'll be up on ebay soon-ish and I'll post the link here.


Thanks

"I spent a fair amount of time researching the right colour for ghosts"......

So.....you watched Ghostbusters right?

The effect worked really well, good job. The only thing I can think of now (pancakes were distracting me earlier ) is to have had a bit of metal showing on the sword blade to counterpoint the ghost effect, in my mind that would have been more of a possessed sword as opposed to a ghostly sword - if that makes sense. But that's a purely personal view and entirely depends on what look you were going for

Finished piece looks great

I did think about giving the edges a dry-brush of silver to do that, but the effect was so nice I decided that I didn't want to disturb it and so, ghost-sword it is.

I can see where the monitors come from.
The backs will be extended, see below.

monkeytroll wrote:White part's a giant scatter pillow, the grey part's a pouffe?

The grey part is actually not-so-blu tack.
Due to my previous experience with the toilets and seeing Cam and his bath, I decided to use a former to make the shell of the sink around it.
These are to match the Tainted toilets in my "of course they are not Fallout models" range.
The backs will be built up (as below) and the insides need some putty to give the proper shape.

I'm doing two so that I can try different things with them and hopefully end up with at least one good sculpt.

Here's the progress on the back of the sinks and a picture of what they are aimed at.

Spoiler:

A lot more work is needed.
Needs the lip and the whole shape has to be rounded.

and I'm not yet sure if the scaling is right yet. So these are test pieces to see how it goes...

Ahah...I'd forgotten what Fallout sinks looked like, I was referring to making the 'lip' wider at the back for the taps to rise out of - guess that's more a UK style

Yeah, I know what you mean.

I might, like with the toilets, make a "normal" looking sink. Once I get the right technique.

The taps are going to be the difficult thing to produce. I have a plan, but will have to see.

A little progress on the sinks.
I added some putty inside the bowls to give that shape and I added a lip around one of them (with the left over putty from the insides).
I then gave that sink a good sanding to try are get the shape.

Here's a comparison shot with a Tainted toilet and SM #9.


While the shape is ok, I think the basin is a little too large (compared to the toilet) and this makes the pedestal look too thin.
But then the pedestal looks too thin compared to the base of the toilet in the earlier picture I showed...
May need to be a little taller overall as well...

I don't have a good picture that shows both sink and toilet, so I'm going to have to have a wander about and find one.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
That didn't take long. I found the perfect bathroom in Novac and now have many reference pictures.

What they show, however, is that my drawings that I made from previous reference pictures weren't right.
I made the basin too square, it should be rounder on the front.
The whole sink needs to be about as high as the cistern.
The pedestal is indeed too thin...
...and the basin just slightly too large.

I may still carry one of these on as a variant, but will make some new ones from scratch.

So this is the progress on the all new sinks.
Better size, shape and... just better really.


I made the basin first. With an open back so that I could sand the inside easier.
and I've just now done the rear part of these.

Once that sets I can set about it with more sanding and then see how they fit with the new, thicker, pedestals. Then, details.

The pedestal did look a little thin there, but the basin doesn't seem too large to me.

Keeping the back separate was probably a wise move

Yeah, the thickness was based on calculations of the scale on a drawing. The same kind of calculations were off when I did the toilets too.
It helps to give an idea of what you are building, but you have to make them to see how they measure up.

Good thing too, as the new basins are currently slightly larger... blame the addition of the lip.
They will be sanded down a bit. A mm here of there is not the end of the world, so long as they look right.

Keeping the back separate was probably a wise move
Yeah, it's a pain in the backside to try and get a smooth finish inside a hole/dip that is smaller than your finger. Had the same issue with the toilets.

And here's one of them on a pedestal (that needs to be made slightly shorter)


I'll tidy up that unevenness on the back of that one, sand down the other one, shorten the pedestals and then look at adding the details.

Here's the sinks at their new height (with SM #2 for scale)


And I've started adding details to the basins and pedestals.

Locations for the taps and spout, the overflow and the water connections at the back.

I keep making a mess of the overflow on the second sink and having to re-fill it.

Next job will be to make some quick putty casts of these with the wonder material that is Oyumaru. Then I can fine tune the shape and detail before they can be moulded and cast proper.
I also still need to attempt the taps and spout...

Yeah, the putty casts may be sanded down a little more.
