This is the figure that I submitted to the Pulp Themed Competition at Reaper Forums.
I put her on a less complicated base from Micro Arts, but I had to do some modifications to it. There was a huge mouth with teeth in the middle that I had to file off and cover with Green Stuff and ballast. I also had to sculpt a rock onto the side to act as a shelf for her demon. I stripped him and changed his colour completely.
To provide scenery I used the pod from a dried poppy to make the small alien plant in the front. Dried grape stems were used to make the alien thorn bush in the back. I also added a bit of pink that I snipped off from an aquarium plant.
I brought orange in as a contrasting colour and used it on the ballast, the biomatter and on her demons gun to tie it all together. I used an Amethyst wash on the rocks to draw the eye towards the purple in her outfit
I think she's much better than she was and I'd like to at least place in the competition. Winners won't be announced until after August 19th.
One member of the Reaper Forums opened a Miniature Rating site yesterday. It is a place to show your miniatures and have your work assessed by other painters and to learn from their critiques. Further trolls will not be tolerated on this sit. If anyone is interested here is the link to The Minirater
