Off The Shelf - 5 - Alien3

This is the Halcyon IP version, bought the day it was released. Made it staight from the box but i tried something different to detail the skin.
It was a LONG time ago that i did it, so don't remember actual names or brands of paint used, but it was a case of a standard flesh or tan basecoat, then lots of sloppy ink washes applied then randomly blotched off.
Did that a few times to build up the layers and then lots of coats of gloss varnish to try and add even more depth.
Still pleased with it, although i wish i'd misted something onto the inside of the dome as it just looks like what it is - a bit of clear plastic.
