Voltron themed Dreadknight *ShowCase no7*
Ok this one will be a bit longer then my usual post. This project was a blast! Actually a blast from the past! I ran a contest in the month of February. Winners would get a model painted by me for free! So @r3con on twitter was one of the winners! So is first question to me was do you wanna go hardcore? I was like yeah what you’ve got in mind ? So he wasnt joking he wanted a Voltron themed dreadknight. For those of you that don’t know what Voltron is here’s a pic. It’s an old Japanese and American Tv series.
Of course i did stray a way from the original colors for a couple of reasons. first being the fact that The voltron as a full armour as opposed to the dreadknight that as armour plates, which means that if i painted the legs white it would have looked a bit bad.
Then we came to the point where I said: “hummm why don’t we do a crazy base and change the rather static pose of the dreadknight.” Nicely enough he said let’s do it! so that’s what we did. For this I ended up doing and sculpting a base for it and cut the legs of the model to re-positioned them. If you go over to my Flickr page you can see pictures of the work in progress.
Here’s a video ShowCase
