Albino Alien
« on: January 17, 2011, 11:38:26 am »
Standard Horizon kit, superglued together and with lots of filler.

Sprayed White primer, teeth painted yellow.
A multitude of Klear Floor polish was applied.

When dry, masses of thick Crimson Water Colour was applied and afterwards wiped off with a tissue.

Kevin is a member of the What If? SIG and eats Twiglets.

Kevin could well be at the Milton Keynes Show....they appreciate SF stuff there so perhaps a wonky Dalek or too as well. ;)

Have to agree with Ben.  The white brings out a lot more details and the red highlights the 'organic' feel of the original that was lost in the overall black of the movie version.

Nice build tho, really interesting variation.

Regards,

He looks a bit pale - maybe he would benefit from a drink of blood

Ya know what always creeped me out about these aliens?  No eyes.  Something that scary and creepy and deadly....that.has.no.eyes. **Shudder**  :blink: :blink:

 A very interesting variation...I could see it in an 'ice world' diorama. Kudos to your friend, Radish.
