Reincarnation - Kingdom Death Phoenix
This time, I went with a more traditional red paint job, though still with true Kingdom Death gross fleshy bits.
I paid close attention to blending the phoenix's natural skin (not the weird little hands) with his feathers around where they met, as I've seen a few where those bits aren't blended, and they look way more like a weird thing wearing a poorly made bird suit than they do a creepy bird.
The base is a new piece I cast, that I'm planning on reusing for my Retinues down the line, to have a little scene of a few Survivors working together or w/e.
It took a little kneadatite to get it to meet more closely, since the surface isn't intended to be flat, but the log fits in there nice and snugly.
Below, a closeup of the feathers- while the larger picture looks fairly homogenous, there's a lot of orange and yellow mixed into the feathers, based on the resource illustrations, with an uneven swirl reminiscent of the model's namesake.
