Harry Christmas


Recommended Posts

As has been the custom for a few years now is that the GK guys who release their various kits takes one or more of their offerings and make a Christmas ornament. This year after Gillman's release of their Harry from Harry and the Hendersons bust, they released Harry as an ornament.

After priming black, I started the base coating -

Here's where I always try something - which doesn't work - and then have to backtrack. I tried a highlight to the skin that ended up being too yellow. Looking at screen grabs of Harry, he has quite a rosy complexion.
The I added a highlight to the brown fur that IMHO was too red. Time to start again.
I also wanted to start coloring in the eyes and teeth. I wanted to use V's White Gray, but being very thin, I added Iraqi Sand first.

Finally to end Part 1, I added the gray fur to age him up a little bit.
Thanks for looking.

The major step this session was painting in the eyes. A web check of the eye color of Kevin Peter Hall turned up nothing.

 

Most of the images show him with green eyes so that's where I went. When dry, onto the tree he went. Merry Christmas and thanks for looking everyone.

Dang....that last pic looks like Harry's actually peeking out from inside the tree! Outstanding painting, especially the eyes!

Thanks. Even with an Opti-visor, this is about the limit where I can give eyes any sort of detail. ;)
