From Aurora to AHI and back again...
« on: July 30, 2019, 02:41:52 PM »
It's no secret AHI famously "borrowed" the Aurora model kit head sculpts for their 8" monster figures.

I thought it would be cool to take what AHI did and reverse it, replicating the AHI look on an original Aurora Frankenstein.

I began by painting the head flesh color first, then applying the green over it to look like a painted vinyl head. I recreated the factory paint,
blue eyeshadow and all. Finally I did a faint color "rub" on the high points of the face to simulate paint wear, allowing the flesh color to show through.

All the Aurora monsters will be getting the AHI treatment!
