You've got a sweet collection of freaky stuff now Deaf!
Can you post a photo of the complete set? Curious how they'll look together.

Thanks, Gatlag. A Group Shot/Tour of the Neighbor is definitely on the agenda. clown

I took a couple of W.I.P. photos of the WONDERFUL Jareth & Hoggle minis that drakkol made for moi.







Cool, huh! Now I hope my paint job will be worthy of my friend's efforts. clown

You say comment and critique, but theres nothing I can be critical about with your work, every single piece is stunning, and together I'm sure they will look incredible (please do a pic of everything together) Very Happy

Those guys look really good too, and if everything I've seen of yours so far is anything to go by, then they're going to end up as some amazing looking models.

You know what I HATE about these WiP?

That they STILL look better than any models I try to make look like statues. Just Kidding


Well, that was pure envy talking! Anyway.... how do you come with the color visualization? I mean, once I have some colors on a model, I get into a 'roll'... but before that I find the endeavor so HARD to start! How do you do it?

Thanks, Guys. I think drakkol, aka Fabio, did a FANTASTIC job on Jareth & Hoggle.
@Mordheimer: I think I got fairly good at dry-brushing from all the terrain pieces I've done over a lot of years.
Figuring out a color scheme sometimes takes longer than painting the piece...sometimes MUCH longer. With the Jareth & Hoggle minis I might just go with the colors from the film:

WOW! Little Jennifer turned into a Babe. Shocked

While I'm at it, here's Hoggle in GLORIOUS full color...mostly:







As always, your commentary would be GREATLY appreciated. clown

Ace models of Jareth and Hoggle. Looking forward to seeing the paint job on Jareth (if it's anything like Hoggle it will look top notch!)

Laney Very Happy

AND VIOLA Jareth has joined his Flunky as a completed piece. SO without further ado, some TRULY MEDIOCRE photos:









AND the prerequisite Group Shot:



Once more your comments & critiques are requested. What a Face

I find your work disturbing... My fiancé, who is really artistic, blundered out when she saw your work: it's art! Creepy art, but art none the less...

So I find your *art* disturbing, something to give a weak soul nightmares late at night, buy it's also what make you art so good: the ability to make my brain go wild with fantasies... Those trees... man...

Other than the Nightmares, I hope you're enjoying the pieces. Things that fall in the realm of the surreal upset our sense of normality...probably why so many children are afraid of clowns. clown

I agree with Komfritten's better half... it IS art! This is an AMAZING work, Deaf! You keep raising the bar for yourself!

Thanks Mord! Lately the positive feedback I've been getting has been my sole motivating factor. Since, other than making some cool stuff that works together, I don't have any definite objective with the pieces, I guess this falls under the "ars gratia artis" thingy..."art for the sake of art". clown

This REALLY is proving to be addictive. Be that as it may, here are three more reason to believe I severed the last of my tenuous hold on Reality:

I'm not all that sure what the Little Beasty in the center is, but he was fun to make up. His larges Flora Friends aren't thrilled with the way the neighborhood is going:









As always, your perspective on the Thingies would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

WOW! If I didn't suspect how cool they would turn out, I would suggest to leave them like that! The trees look amazing! Especially the last picture... talk about spooky!

Hey... can we make requests? My mind is not at insane drunken as yours (yet)... but how about... some doors with the infamous Labyrinth's Deaf & Mouth Holding Door Knockers? NO! I don't mean Jennifer's knockers (although those are NICER)... but the ones in this picture?


Or how about the Worm?


I mean, you can 'hide' them in plain sight... make people look at your table and scratch their head when they see them! HA! MORE WORK FOR YOU!!!!

Thanks for sharing. This is my fav non-DS thread!

INSANITY IS INHERITED.
YOU GET FROM YOUR CHILDREN.

Thanks, Mord...I was hoping you'd like them. AND thanks for the photos. Do you have any of the Goblin City? I'd LOVE to get a better view of the buildings. I'd love a source of stills from the movie...things flash by too quickly to study all the details.

The Knockers are a definite for the project; drakkol put Dumb as a hitching ring on the back of the wall Jareth is sitting on; it's just in back of the mushroom. clown

I got a couple of worm types from Four A Minis:





Not as cute as Jim H's Worm, but cool nonetheless. What a Face

In my hometown there is a park where someone anonymously carved faces into the trees. He has since come forward and has been openly doing them for 10 years. They are a similar style to the faces you have been doing. He now is quite successful making faces and selling them on pieces of bark. Here are some pictures: http://bangielski.blogspot.com/2011/04/face-detection-at-ferry-island.html

Some pics of the Goblin City you asked...








YES! The Pee-Fountain!

Thanks for the kind words & inspiration/research photos, Guys What a Face
The real-life forest carvings are very cool; the bottom one looks a lot like what I'm doing. AND the view from the tower plus the fountain are exactly the what I was looking for.
It seems to be a day for getting motivational photos; one of the Guys at L.A.F. gave me a link to these:





There are more Mordheim & Necromunda photos on site:

It's not the easiest of sites to navigate, but there are some cool things there...the smoke machine is really an interesting idea. I thought the Necromunda stuff would go well here.
I really like the Industrial chic stuff on your site. VERY NICELY DONE! What a Face

This is a brilliant thread... where to begin:

Superb modelling on Jareth and Hoggle (set off by an ace paintjob)

Even better scenery - I second Mord's suggestion to leave it black and white (or at least take some B+W photos of what you've made).

Please, please, please make a labyrinth - it would be awesome! (or the orange furry guy - I forget his name!)

Laney Very Happy
