Hey guys just wanted to show you some new pictures that a costumer of mine took enjoy
Nope- They were base coated gold. I think whatever weathering techniques they used might give the illusion of copper, though. I have a strong feeling that they were plated and not painted.I've never seen an actual movie bio with the copper oxidisation though, to take a minor issue with Carls point
It does make the overal look more interesting and believable. I love the green oxidation, it's just that more interesting than regular blacks and greys... And it was Sandy C. who did a P2 with this patina rather than SW I believe...Very nice, clean casting. Good job, Art. Does the bio come with the eye mesh?
Your customer has captured a close facsmile of Winston's original, including the weathering, which is a patina of light green used to simulate the oxidation of copper.
What never made sense to me is why Winston and co. weathered it that way, when clearly predator armor is not copper, or any other kind of metal found on this planet----the green tends to create too high a contrast, rather than compliment the surrounding material like on the P1. But, that's the way Winston did it, so.....
Not trying to hijack this thread, just an observation.
