Painting Journal: Swamp Gas Groot
I gushed all over the Funko Hikari Groot toy in my last post. Sufficed to say, after one, I was jazzed to paint more.
I was reserved with the metallics on Jungle Groot, this time, I cut loose! Again inspired by Kenner's Swamp thing toys, I wanted a heavy contrast between colors and surfaces. Monster Kolor blues and magenta came through again, pricinding a glowing, otherworldly look.
Copper eyes, pink pearl, and high-gloss clear-coat complete the piece, and there's some cool chiaroscuro effects depending on your viewing angle.
