Great idea with the tissue paper, it should look great once painted.

Thanks Al, this is all one great experiment using lessons learnt from my previous build and venturing into new techniques such as the tissue paper. The other texture is the body which I wanted to create a lizard type texture I actually created this using a kitchen sponge with the green scourer on the other side, just wait for the milliput to cure slightly then press the green side on and peel offend there you have it lizard skin.

So part 2 of the rear wings firstly milliput on and shape the limbs top and bottom adding the lizard effects before it dries Fig 1
Next milliput the spines down the tailed let them dry, so I need to fix them to the body and the best way is to drill front and back and insert 2 steel pins or better known as paper clips.

Pin these to the body and superglue them in, just for a bit of added safety I just milliput them around the edges
Fig 2 I now add strips of tissue with the PVA glue over the back to blend the 2 sides together.

Fig 3 shows the 2 sides and blended together with the tails on the rear section the finishing touch is just to ad the 2 hook claws on the arms which I pre made and let dry.

Firstly sorry for the lack of posts and comments.
Recently my father inlay who followed my builds with keen interests died, this build has now taken on a new meaning for me as it is no longer just an entry but a tribute.

So where am I ?
Wings, I have the two wings formed but need to look at two issues firstly how to build the limb muscles and secondly how to build the connects for the 3 wing connects so there is some supporting connect structure including the front claw.

These 2 issues perplexed me for a while the limbs solid milliput could be a possibility but would be heavy and use a lot of milliput. Finally I settled on plastic covered foam carved to the shape required to provide form and reduce weight Fig 1
The second took longer but the best I could come up with was the following:
Plasitube heated, shaped and flattened on one end to give the angle this was then glued in place the idea would to be later to use a thiner piece of plastitube that fits inside and inside of that which would have steel wire inside of that.
This tube will fit inside both the socket and the tube that will go n the wings, also I used a split on the wing edge to give some body.

So part 2 catch up

After the infrastructure of the limbs connection and wings in place first figures show the min wings in place fixed and ready for the limbs to be built in the idea will be to blend them in.
Next pictures show what will be the the main toe extended and formed and the 3 wing bases moulded in to make them sturdy enough to take the dragon fly wings.

Absolutely beautiful! Especially the leathery skin texture, this is going to look first class! I've just bought my new Superfine Milliput and getting near my own body sculpting - not looking forward to it one bit!Blink

Ok so now I need to dress them up, firstly I need to milliput in the wing bases and blend them into the the main wing limb. This will form the base of the dragonfly wings which I have a cunning plan on how to make there is a lot at stake at this point as the main limbs have to support the other wings if this doesn't work Blushing .
The toes are pre formed milliput with steel pins which I drilled into the toe and foot and then moulded in.

The last shot shows it in some perspective against a coke can " its gonna be big" not sure I know where its gonna go when finishedLaugh

TORUK
Last shadow " yeh because its the last one you see" its an apex predator on pandora that rules the skies, big bad a cold blooded killer.
What is it? a bird? a lizard? an insect? like most of the creatures on pandora it has some contradictory features, head this looks like a lizard with dinosaur features like the blade like feature on the head. It has 2 sets of eyes a main forward set but a smaller set that faces backwards giving it cover of vision.

Wings, this seem almost bat like or a prehistoric bird giving the main lift to fly but then there the anomaly, it has 3 outer wings these are part bat like but have dragon fly features on the extremities.

And this is where we are how to create this look for these wings.

First I sketched them out in proportion to the main wing (pic 1)I decided that the best way was to use 1.5 mm clear plastic, (pic 2) next I used a sharpie to mark out were I will milliput the main vanes on the dragonfly part.

How do I join the these wings to the main wing? so my crazy idea a is take a length of plastruct tube, drill a whole in it and splice it up to the end. This will slot over the outside base edge to the lower part of the wing and be blended in. Next take a length of smaller tube which fits inside and put steel through the core, this will stick out enough of the base of the wing to go into the sockets on the end of the main wing (I hopeHuh ) pic 3,4.

next I use an engraver and scribed in the dragonfly look BigGrin only got to do this another 11 times pic5
