    Rusty Robot!

    Hi!

    Heres a picture of my newest piece, the Rusty Robot 2:

    Rusty Robot!
    Rusty Robot 2

    Standing just under 10cm tall he's quite a small piece and decidedly ramshackle in appearence.

    His mismatched limbs hint that the little fellow has either been constructed from spare parts or left to his own devices for some time and has replaced parts as they wear out with salvaged replacements.

    All the best!

    The paint detail is very nice and the hobbled leg is nice touch. Poor little guy, he is only 5 years old.

    Sometimes simple is better. This little guy has a lot of character without needing a lot of detail. Very nice job!

    The damage has really nice clean lines. What technique did you use to get it so crisp? Also, is he just painted with acrylics?

    Hi!

    To be honest I beat the model with a hammer till it broke then glued it back together again.

    The paint was game colour from Ral Partha Europe http://www.ralparthaeurope.co.uk/min...ints-c-54.html At under £1 a pot its quite a bargain apart from the metallics which are rubbish. They were Vellejio game color.

    I also used some windsor and newton chestnut brown ink to add some dibbly bits.

    All the best!

    Ah, I did wonder. Works great though. It just shows, sometimes you have to think outside of the box with sculpture to get the result you want.
