We drew out of a hat and I got my sister-in-law. Fortunately for me she's a Lord of the Rings fan (of the movies in particular). Very subtly I found out that Aragorn is her favourite character. So I trolled eBay until I found a cheap used metal Aragorn and pounced!
Here is the result of my work...
The original was part painted, so I gave it a clean up and a re-spray.
Here he is unbased:
I tried to keep earthy type colours, the green isn't quite so vibrant under normal light.
And based, I know, shock of all shocks it's not my underground style.
And the back...
So there you go, almost a pity to be giving it away =) I hope she likes it! More than that, I hope she at least recognises who it is!
