How to Build a Martian
My buddy Dave gave me this way cool kit as a gift. Here’s a work in progress:
After the basecoat I just sprayed on another few coats of Krylon tan paint (used for plastic lawn furnature). I then added several wet diluted (wash) coats of red-orange and reptilicus green freaky acrylic paint. For the arteries I used a metallic silver marker. The triocular eyes were painted from behind with good old Tester’s enamel. In the end I sprayed it with about five coats of Krylon poly. I included a glow lamp behind the eye socket, but the effect was disappointing and the Martian really doesn’t have a glowing eyeset (the war machine camera does though!). Here’s a final taken with Voightlander Nokton 50mm f1.5 wideopen… Touched up a bit with CamerBag2.
And a shot of the Martian on it’s homeplanet…
