CXXXI. What the Hell Happened to Bambi

Next batch of minis for Monstrous Births is underway - the Misshapen Deer. This unfortunate creature is the first one of five. I won't share much back story about them at this point; I'll have to save that for a later date. For now, enjoy the model. 

There is something strange going on in the woods...
I had a good time painting the mottled fur.
This doe has real chaos going on with her limbs, a squat body and mismatched eyes. Each of the subsequent deer will have a unique set of deformities.
The base model is Sisters of the Thorn mount. There are extra legs from old Wood Elf Glade Rider horses, and from a cheap plastic toy. The rest is Milliput. The model is larger than I would find ideal, but the Sisters of the Thorn deer sculpt was just too lovely to pass up.

  5. Both the sculpting and the paint job are totally inspiring. The bambi paintjob disturbs the child in me where as the sculpting leaves me scratching my head. Any tips for starting down the road with Miliput? How does it compare to greenstuff?

  7. Ooh, subtle and dreadful! Very nice indeed. Brings to mind Beksinski's earlier work, that sort of wonderful structural offness.

  10. Thanks, everyone!

    @Watashi Taisho - nope, these are something else. :)

    @Hot Dice Miniatures - they have quite different properties. GS is like old chewing gum, and Milliput behaves a lot like clay. Even in the way it reacts to water. Each of the two has its uses.

  13. This painted model is very unnerving and that's all due to your skill in creating it.
