We Call Them Engineers by sivousplay We Call Them Engineers by sivousplay
Here's my take on a stunning 1/5-1/6 scale kit from Apkitt based on the film Prometheus. I decided to go w/ a different color scheme for the engineer trying to evoke a little more Giger in the colors than those chosen for the film. As always, hand painted with mostly Vallejo acrylics. If you'd like to see more pictures, please visit my site: sivousplay.net/html/engineers.… or check out this collage on dA: fav.me/d6lbzlh

Cheers,
jim

Oh okay. I was like wait, why are there two of them and your colors more brilliant. While his colors are true to the nostalgic archetype your coloring provide a much more readable contrast. 

Beautiful paint job. When I start on my sculpting pieces, I hope I'm a quarter as good as you are.

Hi I am a painter and photographer ... Apikit is a sculptor. He sculpted the original and produced a garage kit that he sold. I purchased one of the kits and painted this version.

Wow, what a surreal colour palette! It suits the model so well. The suggestion of demi-translucence in the alien domes is really striking, especially in the second alien with the transition from pink to grunge. This is a real pleasure to look at, I would be thrilled to have a piece like this on my shelf.

thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful words ... when I first saw this sculpt, I knew it was special and hoped I could produce a finished work that the sculpt deserved. It's one of my personal favorites and again I'm grateful for your comment!!
