I enjoy painting minis as something they’re not intended to be, so when Monkeysloth put up a contest to come up with a character…who better than Deadpool? In one issue, he appears in the 70s to team up with Power Man and Iron Fist and of course uses this opportunity to go ‘incognito’ as a pimp…
I added a couple katanas from 02455: Weapon Pack IV by Werner Klocke (one graciously donated by Kuro, thanks!) and some GS to add in folds where they entered his coat. The base is also scratch made from styrene and GS.
This one was a lot of fun to paint, which I needed given the past couple months (but we’re all happy and healthy now!). It turned out to be something of a continuation of my HF Gwen project, playing around with some freehand ideas and continuing to try to develop my brush control. The soda can says ‘Joke’ a play on Joka Cola, something DP would drink, surely 🙂
Quick update tonight. Another pass on cleaning a few things up on Seza, then tacking on her skirts with superglue. I’ll clean up the joins with green stuff and then she’s more or less ready for paint. I’ll also want to pin her and as she’s pretty delicate due to the skirts I’ll probably also set up a base before paint. Pretty excited for this one, really cool model and quite different from what I’ve been painting.
Not much on Deadpimp, just carving and cutting for the last katana bit, which I tacked in with glue. Then he’s due for some GS work to patch up the katana joins and I think he’s ready for paint. While I have the GS out I’ll probably whip up a quick sidewalk/curb kind of base for him. Sorry for the crap pic!
Ladies and Gentlebeings, I present to you the first WIP shot of the legendary…..DEADPIMP!
Thanks to Kuro Cleanbrush for the second katana, you see why it was needed. Still need to put in the lower tip of the second one, of course. Here I’ve tacked in the katana parts with superglue, I’ll go back and pack in some green stuff and smooth things out some. I’m really digging it, baby!
I also gap filled Seza’s legs and the other side of her hair I missed last time:
Warm day here in NY, den was tolerable enough to hang out and get a few things accomplished…
Assembly of the djinn and a bit of modification inspired by DKS, some tassles on the sword. Not shaped yet, letting the GS cure first. I like how it came out so I’ll match it when I break out the GS again for gap filling.
Speaking of mods, I was in the mood and looking over candidates to replace Damien’s left hand…and the Black Mist donated copiously (and this time the similarity to DKS’s latest is coincidence!). Black Mist hanging out in the background wondering where his hands and top of his head went, so sad and forlorn. I’ll have to bulk out the hat a little bit though it’s not horrible now.
