Space Pug Misses His Deadline
Well the deadline for the Hasslefree Hustle contest over on Platoon Britannica is about thirty minutes away and I’m sad to say I’ve not got my entry finished in time. I don’t really have any valid excuses apart, perhaps, for the Cygnar painting I’ve been doing for the slow grow.
Still, I’ve really enjoyed painting the space pug (or is he a bulldog?) and I intend to ensure he is finished in time for Salute as a potential sci-fi single entry.
As you can see, he’s really not that far off being done:
There’s a little bit more to do on his armour, pushing the contrast a bit more, particularly in the shadows. Talking of which, I’m really pleased with how the deep burgundy is working to complement the blue-grey. I’ve also got some tidying to do on the yellow sections, then work on the black-grey bits, and some more on his face. Shouldn’t take me too long.
But then there’s the base.
I decided I wanted to do a generic Aliens-style sci-fi corridor so I set about constructing one out of foamed PVC, plasticard and wires.
I did manage to get it fully assembled and sanded down today so it’s ready for spraying. It looks a little scruffy in its newly assembled state, but I’m pretty confident that it’ll look fine once I get it painted and weathered.
Reckon the little badass pug should look pretty good on there.
