    Stars custom figures and repaints

    For previous updates you can check me out on the Animal Toy Forum:
    http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=1212.0



    Big-headed turtle (Platysternon megacephalum) AAA, adult and juvenile.






    The adult already had a very weathered look to it, so I tried to work with that. The end result is rather rough looking and I'm very pleased with it, even if it may not appear like the healthiest turtle out there :P






    I've been putting off this one for months, and I'm really happy to finally finish it! I love how the shell turned out, I'll have to try that technique again for the keeled box turtle when I get to it.

    Sorry if I misled you, these were made by a company called AAA. AAA did a lot of figures (including these) that are made from casting actual specimens, so these are as close to the real deal as you can get in plastic.

    All I did was paint them

    Despite its many flaws I've always been very fond of the Safari Incredible Creatures Hermit Crab, and since I'll be getting crabs soon enough it finally inspired me to get around to customizing it! ;D

    I based it on the most common hermit crab in the pet trade, the Caribbean hermit crab, Coenobita clypeatus. Sadly I wasn't able to add the missing antennae, but I'm still very pleased with it.






    I actually finished this one a long time ago and forgot to post it, AAA Chinese water dragon, Physignathus cocincinus.

    I went back to painting Playmobil, a great way to get used to my new set of small brushes! Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco) and it's in progress companion is a Red Billed Toucan (Ramphastos tucanus). The paint didn't stick well to the legs, and I ended up having to scrape it off the bottom of the "palms" to keep it from starting a chain reaction when it sat on the perch.






    I really only touched this one up, Coelurosauravus elivensis. I added pupils nostrils and claws.




    And here's all the Playmobil repaints I've done; Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco), American Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber), and Coelurosauravus elivensis.


    Lastly, I did this one some time ago and I think I forgot to upload it. Safari ltd Deep Sea Toob Giant Isopod (Bathynomus giganteus), I wish I could have sculpted on its missing legs.

    Blue and Gold Macaw (Ara ararauna) by Hasbro from the Fur Real Friends line (marketed under Squawkers McCaw). Every now and then I go through the figures I've had for a long time, and this is always my first stop. But I can't help but notice every time the beak isn't the right colour, so I finally decided to have a crack at it! The original paint scheme is my older bird, my newer one I chose to repaint since it's overall condition was better (not denying nostalgia played a part). I'm really pleased with how it turned out, the paint is already holding up better than the factory did (even when these guys were fresh out of Zellers, oh poor poor Zellers...), and the sensors and movement for the feet, tongue, and beak are all unaffected by the touch up.

    Red-eyed tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas), original by K&M. I'm really on a role lately with these frogs.


    Agalychnis callidryas and Ceratophrys ornata together.

    Originally an adult mallard by AAA, but I felt the sculpt was far better suited to a juvenile. And I conveniently already had a 1:1 Branta canadensis around so why not round out the family.

    So yah, this is eventually going to look vaguely like a pigeon and less like a faceless blob. I'm actually rather impressed with how well the material resembles feathers, I was expecting it to look like a furry pigeon but it's coming along really well. The eyes drawn in marker may be temporary, depending on availability of glass eyes.

    Not technically finished since I ran out of glue to finish the feet, the nails are just squeezed into place right now and it's rather wobbly where the foot meets the toes since it's just held on with wire, but it looks just like it will when it's finished! Columba livia domestica, no particular morph in mind as I wasn't spoiled for choice of material colours.
