This is a 1:1 Monster Squad Gillman bust from Black Heart Enterprises that I have put together and painted. Sculpted and licensed by Jeremy Bohr and Featured Creatures. This is the first thing I have ever painted with an airbrush- up until now I have always used regular brushes and acrylic craft paints. You can see more pics, including close-ups and various angles at our Facebook page- www.facebook.com/HorrorCustoms in the Gillman album.
The paint job on this is fantastic! I love it. I also love the creature from the black lagoon.
Excellent airbrushing. Really brings out the sculpt's texture.
OMG! :jardrop: That's incredibly realistic. Excellent quality work! I especially like how you colored the scales, made the teeth look almost translucent, and those EYES!
Thank you very much Yes, the back fin and the teeth were made of a clear resin. Originally I was going to paint the teeth with white first to make them look solid but fish teeth usually have a bit of translucency to them I think, so I just shaded them lightly. I'm glad you like it!
EPIX NICE , i am just stand fantastic work
So well painted !
Great paint work there....... The Monster Squad Gillman has always been my fave version of the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Thank you very much. Yeah I love the creature designs for Monster Squad, I thought they were a really nice rendition of the classics. I wish they would have given the Gillman more screen time though!
If you can manage to build somthing like this from scratch in the future you should totally try and get on face off
