PostSubject: Bullyland polar bear repaint - Ursus maritimus   Sat Oct 20, 2012 12:46 pm

Some day ago i got a very dirty and rubbed bullyland polar bear. I am not interested in the species and i think a big part of figurines available are toyish and too cute. and. too white. A polar bear isn't a plushy creature, stroking seals all day. It can even get older.
So i decided to repaint it. unfortunatley i don't have a good pic of the original, maybe someone can help?

Repainting a polar bear should be one of the most incredible exercises. As you know their coat is transparent with hollow hairs filled with algae over a black skin. So what we see, is a kind of dirty white.
I agree that almost all manufacturers paint them excessively white but that's only because they sell better. What would think a children seeing a white bear with a dirty looking? affraid Laughing
The paintwork is very good and you should feel proud of your work, but it deserved a somewhat better sculpting like the WS Safari, for example, don't you agree? scratch scratch study
Congratulations and thanks for hsaring with us! Very Happy

Of course, sculpting, especially of the head, isn't best. But this project accidently hit me, so i know now what to do.

@Susanne:
i was hoping for Bully-quuen to help with best pics possible. Thanks! Very Happy

I agree with you about the world of reality with kids. :)
But, when I tell to my niece that a polar bear is white she says:
- So beautiful!!! albino
When I say that they are transparent, with black skin and algae, she says:
- So liar. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
Laughing

Congratulation Philipp, black or white repainting are the less easy to do IMHO. You succeed very well... Especially because it is not white but transparent with... Laughing cheers
