PostSubject: Papo Komodo Dragon repaint - Varanus komodoensis   Sun Jul 28, 2013 8:08 pm

First impression of a project, started with the big help of a portugese crocodile who sent me the Papo Komodo Dragon.
This figurine is good and bad at the same time. Dynanmic pose, nice sculpt. But:
Head too small and very odd colouration,....
So let's have a try, making a King of Komodo off the King of Chlorodo.
I chose the Colouration of a subadult specimen, representing the typical Zoo Komodo Monitor.
The Papo one can't be a very old one,
his habitus is still showing a younger specimen.

Better pictures of the repainted figurine will follow as soon as there's better light to take pictures.

I like that your repaints are not only to look pretty but mainly, to look realistic! Very Happy
The work improved a lot that figure, a outside picture would have an excelent result.
Tail and flanks are particularly great! cheers tongue

I agree, the coloration of the Papo komodo dragon was very strange, but you did an excellent job repainting him/her. Congrats! :) Applause

Ah, he's lovely! A remarkable improvement on the original. I always felt the fine sculpt went to waste somewhat with the violently green finish. Here's one saved specimen!
