Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 (repaint) by drachenmagier Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 (repaint) by drachenmagier
Before painting: Photos above
After painting: Photos on the bottom

The new toyline of the TMNT is great. Though I did dislike those plastic-y weapons. And that's where it started. I swear, I only intended to repaint the weapons! d:

Michelangelo and Rafael are pretty much finished now. Never did that before and quite happy about how those two look now.

Made me check tutorials about how to paint leather and metal in Warhammer. Sat in a corner for the rest of the day wondering how the hell anybody can paint a whole Mona-Lisa onto a thumbnail-big bit of plastic in photo realistic quality. O_O Warhammer 40k-Artists blow my mind.

BACK TO 2D NOW!

I first tried a bit with the ones from Revell or something like that. Though I can't recommend those. Later I grabbed Warhammer paint from the shop, which works really well. ^^

I liked the live action movies when I was a kid... But attempting to watch them again more recently was incredibly painful!!! I wouldn't recommend it :XD:

I saw them a while ago and was laughing hard. XD
I do recommend the newer series though. Most of them are not for kids only anymore and quite fun to watch. :D

TMNT is back? Guess it always comes back. Cool paint effects, WH40k is always pretty to look at. That chain on the kusari-gama is really thick, when we practiced using the shogee, we had it on either a thin chain or rope. Guess it would too difficult to make a small scale chain for a small toy I guess. I like your keyboard too.

Thanks! Yes, there is a new series, though I haven't had the chance to watch it so far. I will have to do that tomorrow.

It was the smallest chain I could find. ^^ There was only one that was even smaller and that one was pink. So... I think I chose ok. d:

Kusari-gama is the name of that chain-scythe? Thanks, I was wondering about that! :D

Yup, scythe is kama, scythe on chain is kusari-gama, and the small all metal scythe with an extra straight point is a shogee. Kusari-gama usually has a small weight on the other end while the shogee usually has a metal ring on the other end.

Haha, thank you! :D Actually, it's not that hard to do it yourself, once you get your hands on such toys. And they look infinitely better in the show case like this. d:

Jap. Mich nervts dass sich alle über die neuen Turtles anpissen.
Die Chars haben sich ja nicht verändert, und wenn die Technik besser wird zieht es vielleicht auch die heutige Jugend mit rein. Passt doch :)

Jaaa gehäkelte Turtles.

Gegen das neue DMC oder Tomb Raider habe ich zum Beispiel nix. Dafür hasse ich das, was heute unter einem RPG verstanden wird. d:

"How do you paint things that small?"
"Oh, I use a hairbrush."
"You mean that thing you use to brush your hair?"
"No, I mean a paintbrush that is a hair."

Aaanyway, this is lovely. :D Rafael's foot bindings look like they could use a tad more attention, but otherwise you've brought out some nice details. I like Michelangelo's speckles, haha.

I had NO idea what their foot bindings are made of and was tempted to repaint it in... cloth colors. ^^' I will have to check the series for more details there. Aaand better colors. ^^

Well, nunchucks can be quite deadly, but those don't look very flashy. No wonder that new thing (no idea about the name) is fashionable now. :D

though the colours did suck before the repaint, the sculpture are well made. what toy line are these from?

The colors are not that bad for toys. :D It's perfect for kids, if you ask me, even though they could at least have added SOME details to the weapons.

Uhm... line... Good question. No idea. It's those toys but I really never checked who created them. [link]

makes me remember the days I used to customize my own action figures... Why don't I have spawn figures anymore? Todd McFarlane made the baddassinest toys...

Right, I never really paid attention but there are no new Spawn Figures, aren't there...? I think the last I saw were dragons, when it comes to Farlane-Toys. Pity: Some of the figures were really fantastic.
