Black Scorpion-Billy the Kid

I've long wanted to try out some of the Tombstone figures from Black Scorpion and picked up this sculpt of Billy the Kid and the Outlaw pack.

I won't be painting the Outlaws until I get a better grasp of glazing different colours over fabric as I will use that technique to add interest to the dusters.

Billy the Kid stands at about 25mm and was cast in resin.



The casting was a bit rough and there were a lot of mold lines and flash on the figure. However, he has plenty of attitude.  He was painted rather quickly for me, in a single sitting. Something I rarely do. So for a speed paint, I think he's not half bad.

  1. Dahlink, why does he have Angelina Jolie lips and eye shadow :)))
    I always like how you that shading on their clothes, not many other painters do it, and you've become an expert in it, they always look so real. That jacket is lovely.

    I once saw a porn comic of Billy The Kid... /naughtygiggle/

    1. Hahahaha-I've deeply shaded the eyes because he's wearing that wide brimmed hat. And with his head at that angle, no real light will reflect off that surface.

      A porn Billy the Kid-I'm not surprised!

    2. Dahlink, did you go over the series? Do you like the titles? I remember you said you'd like to watch HOME FIRES. I wanted to send you VERSAILLES too but still can't find it at torrents. We shall have to wait for it to air on BBC2 methinks. I also have BASTARD EXECUTIONER and I know you like Kurt Sutter, but that show is so bloody and violent I didn't know you'd like it. I watched it all but puked a lot of times and also hissed and booed and threw a curse upon him :)

    3. Oh yes, I love the titles. Right now I'm not watching anything at night as I've got 6 figures on the table with a deadline for finishing them. Usually I'll watch something when I paint, but it slows me down. In a few days, I'll come up for air.

  3. Again, your mastery of textiles is shown to excellent advantage - when you paint cloth, it always looks so much more... clothy!

  4. This figure looks like Billy the Kid in my dreams! A bit naughty and also innocent but extremely dangerous! And as Evan says the clothing is top!

    Greetings
