Lucky Luke and Jolly Jumper


This month another comic figure..
Lucky Luke with his horse Jolly Jumper.


Also a plastic series, but much larger then the Asterix figures.



Lucky Luke has his famous O legs
what makes this figure uniek.
He can stand on his feet, or sit on the back


of his loyal horse Jolly Jumper.

When I saw them I directly wanted this series, and I got them all!
So here are the first 2 painted like in the comic book...


First I painted the famous main character Lucky Luke


 The man who shoots faster then his shadow!


Then I painted Jolly Jumper
Yeah I did a extra figure this month...


So they can be shown as a real team to you.

Painting this bigger figures was more difficult,
and the Vallejo White needed a lot of layers...
Funny small detail is he has a sigaret in his mouth,
something a new figure these days would never get.

I don't know much about the figures.
I guess they are also from the seventies.
Never seen them before, but a great range!
Hope you like them as much as I do.

Thanks for watching this post.

Painterix


This month a little scratch work of one of the Asterix figures.
And it turned out exactly as I had in mind.


The figure is one of the chiefs shield bearers.
First I removed his sword with a knife.
I drilled a hole in the hand, and put a piece of paperclip in it.
Then made from carton a brush point.


And made from paper a small test painter's palette
witch I then cut out of a small piece of plastic.


Here you see the brush and the painter's palette with a piece
of paperclip to simulate his thumb through the palette.


And finally used some white wood glue to make the
brush more round, and also the thumb a bit thicker.


And with a little primer on it, I had my new figure


So not much scratch, simple but effective!


Then painted him colorful, and also did paint a model.


On a small rock I had to paint his model, because in those days
they didn't have the painting boards like we know now.


A painting easel I made from some twigs.
And some crocheted cotton from my girlfriend.


And so created a small simple vignette...









 A small simple vignette it is, but personally like it a lot.

My inspiration to convert this figure into a painter
came from a post on Facebook where I saw this figure:


Well back to paint some Romain Solders again,
this was a nice side project, hope you like it as well.

Governor's daughter


This month a nice lady I found at Crisis in Antwerp last year.


This figure is sold as a resin model.




She is from a pirate range by Black Scorpion Miniatures.
Named Governor's daughter.


I did painted her Purple and Pink
and did highlight the dress with silver
just to give it a more glamor effect.
Unfortunately it doesn't show well on the pictures.


A well sculpted figure, a nice painting job.


Hope you like her, on thing is for sure..
It was again something different to paint!

Lord Knownothing


this month a post about my lost duel...


My good friend Peter did challenge me for a duel
on Bennos figures forum when we met at FIGZ.
Kristina did pick out this Asterix British figure. 


I tough to paint it a little bit different as I usual do.
Double colors on the shoes, a bit of effect in the hair,
and colors in a different combination.


Gave it the name: Lord Knownothing.
Turned out nice, I tought....


But I got only 8 from the 19 votes...

But it was fun to do, and Peter did deserve to win.
See the duel Here

Hopefully next time more votes for the duel,
cause only 19 voters is not the dueling fun I would like to see.

Pinokkio


This month it was a close call, but I made it.
A well known figure I found on internet.


Yeah it is the guy who does get a larger nose when he doesn't speak the truth..
Pinokkio


Today, the last day of the month I did finish him right on time...
but making the photo's, I saw I forgot his gloves. AHRRR...


So here he is with gloves, and does he like it?


His nose doesn't grow, so I think so!


Not much detail work, and painted the same comic style
as my Asterix figures


The figure was one color plastic, I guess also from the 70ths
Personal I don't know where its from...




well that's all folks for this month, back to the figures who
have more my interest...
It was fun to paint something different, but to be honnest
it wasn't my favorite figure to paint!
