I haven't been here to post in a l-o-n-g time, but now that my computer problems are, hopefully, solved I can come here to play more often.
This is a figure I just finished. The head sculpt and hat are from Lonnie Hale (Frontline) that I painted. The shirt is Battle Gear Toys. The pants were made by hondo who also sold me the leather for the chap bottoms and he threw in a pattern for batwing chaps. The chaps were a LOT of work just the same. I modified hondo's pattern quite a bit, but it gave me a good start. Thank you hondo! (And Thank you to keeping me motivated through email when that was my only access computer-wise. You've been a good friend!) The chap tops are tooling leather that I dyed. I made the gunbelt out of tooling leather and dyed it as well. The boot's and spurs are DML that I've painted. The neckerchief is made of silk and I dyed it with tea. I also want to thank Butch here too, because he provided me with some head sculpt painting tips when I could not get at the tutorials here. Thank you, Butch!
Thank everyone for looking. I hope I can remember how to upload the photos now. Gulp! Here goes!
Hmm...I was able to upload to the gallery, but...not here. Sorry.
Thanks rogerbee, Iron_Mike, gaiagear, lucas, KneeJoint, irishjoe26, laughinggravy, and Sawgunner!!! It's so good to see you old friends, and some new ones!
What a demanding crowd! irishjoe26, Charlie here nearly kilt me making him and you want me to "do a duvall". (I love Duvall, BTW.) :rolling
S-a-w-g-u-n-n-e-r! I thought I'd flooded your mailbox one too many times as it was. "And so...what's the trick to painting this and that and, and, and..." :jump4joy
Again, it's good to be back among old friends, rogerbee, Iron_Mike, gaiagear, lucas, and Sawgunner. Good to meet you KneeJoint and irishjoe26. Thanks again for looking. I wish I could have gotten my 4 pics to upload, but... you get the idea.
That is a cool bash. Really really good. I don't do western figures at all. But you have inspired me to do a Buffalo Soldier from the 9th Calvary. This seems to be you area, so I may PM you for input. BTW, if you separate that index finger from the rest of the fingers on that DML leather glove it will hold the pistol better. Great Job on that figure. Got more pics?
