scar predator custom re paint finished new pics

Post by DAMNATION666 on Fri Aug 21, 2009 11:58 am

I picked up a stealth scar predator through a trade, thanks to the good dr! good sculpt, with zero paint to show it off. So i've attempted my first predator re-paint. as every one knows here, im used to doing hulk customs, last count was over 25, but i wanted a challenge. i also have never done some thing this big before. i didnt want to go with traditional colours, i wanted to come up with my own look. i thought i'd do a more reptillain look. with more earthy tones. what you see here is still at a very early stage, just thought i'd see what others thought, and if i was going in the right direction with him. any one have a tip for painting the netting without sitting there for days on end would be great!

Yeh i 2nd that, its coming along great! its a treasure trove for drybrushing those figures, full of great detail! Reptile is interesting way to go, but would rather see a different coloured armour personally, like a clear red over the silver, or go 'gore red' type, IMO, which, of course, can be ignored hehe. Maybe some clan symbols?

ok so after sam suggested a different look for the armour, i thought why not! i was going to do a red look, but when i mixed the coulours it turned pinky. so i added purples, blacks and a bit of glold and came up with what you see in the pics. i think it breaks up the armour well. at first i thought he was looking like he walked out of a 1972 david bowie film clip. but my wife assuerd me he looked great, and i trusted her judgment. i still have a while to go before he is finished. and after looking at the pics i can see some areas that need a touch up. and im still dredding the body net. but im happy with how he is coming along. i think this is my bes paint job yet.

well here he is, finished at last. i did think that it would of taken me longer than the weekend though. i guess my painting is getting better and quicker. i could not be happier with this. i stuck to my guns and came up with a predator with a look thats truly me. i gues he will refered to as hulk pred but i didnt plan on sticking to hulk colours, it just happened that way. now im after more predators to paint. i'm dying to do one with white skin with greay and blacks on it, lots of spots and dots. and give that one a black and red armour. thanks again sam for the tip with the armour, really broke it up.
