The tree with Ann Darrow perched in it was base coated a medium brown and I highlighted some of the numerous vines entwined with different
green coloration. I added some moss and other stuff to add interest.
Ann, who's cast into the tree (why?), is in
a skimpy dress that I painted a pearl white to look like satin. I used several flesh tones until I got to one that I was happy with. Her hair started as a dull grayish yellow (some might call it sand) which I finished off with a clear orange, a technique I
often use on my blonde subjects.
One thing that is a little different about this kit is that you can display it
to match the box art or you can rotate it 1800 add still have a nice scene. I'm prone to the orientation where the tree with Ann is in is in the back ground. Because the two “Skull Island” plaques are on either side of the base, this
orientation option is available.
So there you have it. This will be the tenth Kong in my collection and possibly
my last although I still have my eyes peeled for Joe Laudati's “Log Roll” (unless I make one myself). 9/28/20
