Octobust - WIP
I bought this bust ages ago and no longer remember who the manufacturer is -- if anyone out there knows, please mention it in the comments.
I'm very happy with how the skin tones are coming together. I'm going to give him a selective coat of satin when the skin is finished, but only one small section at a time so that I can ensure that the texture works with the shading.
I will also use some Water Effects to put water droplets at the lowest point on each of his tentacles.
He is sitting on a 1.5" clear acrylic cube. I thought that this would be much more interesting for a water themed model like this than any wood or resin would be, and not quite as campy as sticking him onto a chunk of coral.
