Maybe I'm a bit late, but I made pics of my painted pantylus. I don't know if others had the same problem with the legs but mine can't stand on it's four. But ok here are the pics. Sorry for the poor details but I really need to change my glasses
Hey, glad to see you post Kikimalou! Wow, I think this is the first painted figure of your that your shared, yes? Love it, like the red spot on ti ;D Mine has the same problem with the feet, so I think its just a printing problem with this figure. So how did you like working with the SWF material? I personally like how the paint interact with the material. Hope to see more of your painted figures, Cheers! ;D
Thanks everyone Ha ha, I actually got one female Lambeo, but since t he difference is not so obvious, I decided to just split the group in pairs mmfrankford, that could work,too ;D That's how I got the idea of painting my CollectA Afrovenator as "prey mimic" ;D
I'm still deciding on how I should paint the sauropod. Also, the material is WS "polished", new to me, so gotta figure out how the paint will stick to it

AHHHHHH!!!!! You guys! I love seeing these guys being painted up and treasured! It makes me so happy!!! And they are all standing, phew. I LOVE dropping by and seeing what you guys are up to with these models. It really makes my day
Zbrush is coming out with a new version that is supposed to make it easier to hollow the models, so hopefully I can start up again soon. Hollowing is such a major pain it just makes it hard to want to sculpt the things. When one actually works, its like winning the lotto, lol!
Thanks as always for sharing, I LOVE seeing what you do:)
I received my first ever Shapeways pieces the other day. Each one of these has been painted by Shane Foulkes, and I have a few more coming from him. Shane said it was a little tough painting these little guys, but eventually he got the hang of it. I personally think he did a fantastic job.
Here are some decent pics, I was able to take today. I hope everyone enjoys them.
Wonderfully painted figures! I love the Okapi inspired design on the Para, the other hadrosaurs are also stunning. Hey, does your Alamo sport head/neck stripes? Can't tell from the photo, but if it does, it would be the third one that I know of that was painted with stripes! It must be a popular design for this species. BTW, great locations for photographing your figures.
And yes, the small size of these figures can be difficult to paint... all the details are sooooooo small! ;D WSF is the easiest material for such small pieces... t he others, it really is a paint to paint them!
