PostSubject: Papo reindeer repaints :-)    Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:18 pm

I get request from our Susanne to repaint Papo reindeer into more natural colors. Papo original paintjob was quite strange, just flat cold grey color...
I repainted one for Susanne and other one for myself, each of us chosen different photo for a reference so 2 versions are different. Also shape is little bit customized, I didn't like these lines between head and antlers for example. rendeer
I thought maybe I should also customize head a little bit because it is too small in proportions to body but I was afraid if I do it, it wouldn't be Papo reindeer anymore Laughing And face of Papo reindeer is lovely so I decided to not touch it Very Happy
Now photos :)

I used acrylic paints and soft pastels for repainting these two :)

Just beautiful! I love how different you've made them - reindeer are a lot more colorful and varied than most people give them credit for! Very Happy

Ana, when you say soft pastels, do you mean the "crayon sticks" ? So you apply them to accent areas and then blend them in and the color/chalk stay? thanks Shawn

Yes, soft pastels are crayons but I'm sure it is possible to use also pigment powder for the same effect. I think Silvia described this technique some time ago when she showed her quagga. Pigment must be blended by brush Wink Very Happy At the end all work must be protected by fixative. :)

Oh good lord those are beautiful. I am sick with jealousy. Now, when I finally get my own factory painted Papo Reindeer, I will sneer at it.

Anna, both repaints are wonderful. I couldn't decide between them; they are both amazing.

Susanne, you are indeed so lucky. Congratulations.

Perfectly done! Congratulations both of you!!

At last, at last, at last PAPO reindeer is on the Collector market cheers

It is far better than the grey first draft they accidentally sold. geek Laughing

Thank you very much PAPO to make such boring model cheers .
If it was a little bit better, Susanne wouldn't feel the need to change it and we missed then these two beauties Ana made Laughing

Ana, those reindeers are wonderful, I prefer the first one...And the second... And the first... And... Wink

Great work ! PAPO produced them for the market and you gave them their real birth Very Happy

scratch My Toundra shelf seems empty now drunken

A fantastic painting saves always a figure. What is comparable between these 2 magnificent works and the factory painting? This is one of the most dramatic repaintings I have seen until now, I really don't like the Papo reindeer and these 2 are absolutly fantastic! But they are Papo reindeers! rendeer
There are lot many subspecies of this animal and subsequent variations in coloring. Also there are seasonal and regional variations. I believe we can find something similar to the original painting but it doesn't works, is uninteresting! But I don't need more words, these manifestations of talent are saying much more than my limited vocabulary can say. Congratulations! cheers

BOTH LOOK FANTASTIC! GREAT JOB! Too bad Papo didn't it do it right...
(As I have said, aside form the T-Rex, the Papo 2012' assortment is terrible!).
