Before i talk about the painting and last touch ups i would like to quickly show you some brief pics of how the hands were put together. Sadly for this part of the process I didn't have the chance to photograph most of the hand sculpting.
Here are the steps for how I made the hands quickly. I began with fitting the armature constructed into a wooden hand palm. From there I could figure out how big the claws would end up becoming.
|I baked the claws out of sculpy but before i had them fitted, I added small sections of K&S tot he fingers to bulk them out before i finally added the baked claws and had the whole load primed for painting later.|
So hear are both Trickers all primed and ready for the final phase. PAINTING!!!!
I gave both Trickers a base coat of brown paint. Once dried I applied 2-3 more layers to make sure that the Trickers looked wooden.
I had to be careful though not to paint over the hair i had stuck down. over all though th job was a successful one. I added the masks to see how they sat on the faces... they look beautiful :')
So here is the Tricker looking rather surprised at what i have done to it but fear not little Tricker as it is for the greater good.
I added the hair which i discussed in an earlier post, along with the string that sits behind the mask to create the look of the mask elastic.
I used a number of greys for the claws on both the hands and feet before lightly dabbing them with orange to create the look of stains from carving the pumpkins.
HEY PRESTO!! TIS A TRICKER!
I tried out all the masks to see if they fitted correctly. They all work just fine and to show you, I decided to include a few examples of the Trickers wearing their masks.
Trickers are now all done... Now back to Bloody Mary!
