    Looks like a great start, from what I can see. :thumbsup

    Will be very interested in seeing closer shots from a variety of angles, and particularly some comparison shots with your reference photos/screencaps. :love

    Thank you.
    I will post better pics tomorrow.
    I only has the reference pics posted here at RPF and some screen caps.
    I will take the pic in the same angle of the ref, so I will compare them.

    Coming along very nicely. :thumbsup

    Not sure whether you want supportive criticism. It looks to me as if the legs on the screen-used creature are a bit longer and/or more slender, and the joints (knees?) are are bit more pronounced.

    Mouth and especially the squinty eyes look very good as far as I can tell. :eek

    I'm looking forward to seeing continued development. Thanks for sharing.

    I noticed that too, the foot? are to short and the leg is smoother in the reference images that you are using, all the other things are going well, it will be most accurate with some leg modifications.

    Edit: if you want to be like the stop motion creature you can make it an armature and make a mold and then cast it in silicone or foam latex will be really cool and functional for an animation.

    Thank you, tomorrow I will correct the legs.
    I will cast them in resin because the other pieces that are in progress are made of this material.
    More pics coming.

    I corrected the legs. Now I will work on the textures and details.
    I think the legs are too fat. I will correct it too.
    I tried to give it a pose to show movement.
    I am starting Nº1 too.

    Here are a few pics.

    Thank you very much. I am not very experienced with small pieces I generally work with life size.
    I am working on the details.

    Thank you for your pics.
    Do you think the Nº7's is from the real prop? I think i will have to make it narrower. (Or with the legs less opened.)
    Let's be in touch.

    Nice. But it looks like the one I'm working on (the purple's) left foot is a bit worse for wear than in the reference pics I have. But it should be easy to match up the cover.

    It might be cool as well to vac those bases and provide a little plaque that matches for all the figures.

    Thank you for the information. I was trying to match my sculpt with it instead of the screen used prop.
    I am finishing the details so by the weekend I will post the new pics and for next week I will make the molds.

    Thank you guys for your words and PM. I dis a very cheap stand for display with a 20 cm (diam) flowerpot plate and aluminium foil.
    It's easy cheap and looks great with the monsters.
