In last year's Challenge, I did Sergeant Preston for "Favourite Character."
So, for this year's "Mounted" Fortnight Challenge, I decided to do Sergeant Preston and Rex, his horse. As some of you will no doubt recognize, this is from the Pulp Figures "Sgt. Preston" pack. (Observant folks out there, will notice the 'dismounted' figure in this pack, is NOT the one I painted last year - but I think the figure I did paint as "Sergeant Preston" makes a better Sergeant Preston.)
I found this old puzzle box art, which was really handy, and I was planning to paint the horse Chestnut! (...Oops!)
Pretty straight forward painting on this figure - just match up with last year's figure, and the puzzle box art.
Lastly, a shot of last year's figure with this year's Mounted version.
Oh, and I put away the photo booth for the time being. I found a couple of decent swing-arm desk lamps at "Wally-mart" and some good old, Incandescent bulbs to light up the scene! In my mind at least, they look much better than my previous pics this year. I'll need to get some tissue paper to cover the lamps for better diffusion, and I might still need a third lamp for "fill" light from the camera area, but I'm much happier with how these shots turned out - and pretty minimal Photoshopping to get them ready!
Thanks for looking!
