Bass colored by RandyHand Bass colored by RandyHand
Just finished up on the bass last night and antiqued it today. Rarely do I like colored versions of sculpts better than the original sculpt itself but in this case I like it better now that it has those fishy colors going on.
I still have to antique the boat and the fisherman etc. and then it will be ready to put together.
I'm still going to sell the fish just as is though.
Hope you all like it!

Thanks so much! I really had a blast working on this one.
I try to think about how a big fish like that would act and then try to interject my own thoughts on how it should look.

Randy, i love this. The colors are awesome. How did you get the almost metallic shine to the scales?

Thanks so much Dave!
For the bass I sprayed the whole thing with silver metallic spray paint first, then layered other colors until I achieved this look.

nice bassy colors. now i'm picturing him with a hook somewhere in his lip, maybe on the side a little...which added to his attitude, like he's been around the pond a few times. now he's wearing a hook like a piercing.

:iconrandyhand:
RandyHand Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
Thanks man!
I was actually considering sculpting tiny lures and hooks to adorn his lips but decided against it...at least for this particular one anyway. I may do a separate moulding on that version now that I think about it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
All my best,
Take care

great minds...

hey, maybe you can still use a real hook or two, by snipping em in half then position them where they look best.
Reply
:iconrandyhand:
RandyHand Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
I probably will do that on the fish if he's by himself.
On the assembled version that I'll be posting pix of soon, you'll see with the size proportion of the boat and fisherman compared to the bass, that it would have to be a really really small hook, lure, etc.
All my best,
Take care

For a moment there in my Monday morning stupor I thought it was a real fish, but then I remembered where I was. Awesome colours, they really bring him to life.

It was a lot of fun to come up with this shade of green/yellow...or yellow/green depending on your perspective.:)
