Default Albert (Old One-Eye conversion)

I decided that I needed to build an Old One-Eye. Thus, meet Albert. He's big and mean and a mash-up of classic OOE and current 'fex. He's probably also unlikely to make it into the next 'dex, unless he gets a new official model, though, sooooo...there's that, I suppose.

Pictures are big. You've been warned.

Albert:


Adaptive biology:


What a scar!


Shoot the Big Ones!

Thanks for lookin'!

Holy crap that's awesome! I'd love to see a few more full-profile shots from different angles. + Rep

Thanks for the praise!

Silens-Iíll work on getting some more up somewhere for you. Any other angles/details you want to see?

Serp-Nope, the claws are just sculpted around a set of tervigon crushers. I did look at a lot of crustacean claws for inspiration, though.

I'd like to be able to see the claws a bit better, but that should come with the full-profile shots.

That is an amazing bit of work.
Your greenstuff sculpting is fantastic. Very jealous over here.
I also would like to see more of those huge claws on ol' Albert there.

All: Here's a link to a new album with some more profile shots and detail shots of the claws. The quality is a little (much) lower, and some of them are sideways, and it's kind of a mess...Sorry about that, but this is all happening on my phone.

At any rate, here you are: http://imgur.com/a/kMUpF

Rogz: Thanks! After ten years, I ought to be able to sculpt a little, huh?

Awesome work. Really great stuff. Can't wait to see 'em painted! I'm envious I don't get to do it myself.

Silens: *drowns in praise* Thanks! I do hope to get him painted up one day, but I've...*cough*...never painted...any figures before. I plan to start painting with some less centerpiece models, but i do want to see Albert in the full glory of the classic red/yellow/black color scheme.
