Happy Monk

I'm still working on my Marauder and will have pics to post soon -- but something I did to the dragon has effected the ability of paint to stick to it. After two layers of matte sealer, and lots of lost detail as a result, paint is MOSTLY sticking now.

And so I decided to move on to composing the base for my next project.

This is the Happy Monk.

The wall is pinned in place but won't be glued until after the model itself is finished. That's why it looks like it's leaning to the right -- because at the moment it is.

I also still need to finish cleaning up the putty to make it look more like rough plaster on the wall.

The floor is a herringbone tile that will be cracked and weathered.

The monk has a branch that goes in his hand, with a butterfly on the end, and I'll add some leaves to it and the floor as a final bit of detailing.

The plinth is 2" square to give you a sense of scale on this one.


  1. I saw this model on Massive Voodoo. I really like it. I'm curious to see what you can do with it. Good luck.

  2. Thanks - I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it on MV too.
