So I finally had the nerve to repaint my statuette. What do you guys think?
It's a BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURE!!!! (But I'm sure i'm not the only one who thinks SH screwed up with the paint job. :sick)
Not sure if i'm finished, so any advice would be appreciated! :thumbsup

Hard to tell with flash photography. I view bones like that as being bleached by the sun. As long as you used various black, brown washes it should be fine. Take the T-Rex outside on a mostly cloudy day and out of direct sunlight and take the picture without flash.

I don't know how well you can make out the destroyed skeletons in this image - taken from the video - but I don't think they were as dark as those shown. They sealed many old bones with Orange Shellac back in the day ... giving them the shiny color. The bones were darkened by the mineral replacement of the calcium, and they sealed them with a like colored sealer, and over time they simply get even darker with age. Natural 'fresh' bone color is an off white, leaning towards a pale Yellow Ochre ... this being caused by the natural fats and grease in the bones. They are only whitened after bleaching ... either chemically or from time in the sun. Sun bleaching also depletes the bones of minerals, causing them to become somewhat porous. If you want the bones to appear 'natural' as if they are 'leftovers' from former meals, then go for an off yellowish/brown color. If you're looking to represent the scene from the movie - preserved and articulated bones, destroyed in the fight - then go for a more brown coloring. The decision is based solely on what you are looking to represent.
