This was a very interesting project... taking an ancient Ral Partha figure and giving it the "new figure" treatment.
I used the new style foliage to create overgrown effect on a fun little sculpey vignette.
I can remember years ago trying to sculpt something similar to this with unbaked sculpey... not thinking that it would be a million times easier to do so once it was baked. :-)
The last time I was painting figures such as these, the technique was radically different. It was more along the lines of the standard "GW" approach. Painting this one in the manner which I do now was quite an interesting experience.
An exercise like this seemed even more useful, since I have had so many examples of the very latest in sculpting and manufacturing coming through here!!
Yes indeed... sometimes what is old can be new!
