I like mummies, but Karloff has been done to death.  I've had my eye on this kit since Wonderfest 2007, and bought it right at the bell on Sunday this year from Jay Garcia at Mana Studios.

This was a really fun build.

Scantily clad sure, but not quite as sexy as your usual work. :razz: Very nicely done indeed. Love the wall especially. The exposed skin is very nicely done as well.

I'm really diggin' your work lately, Vampirella and Ogro, zombies, mummies very sinister. :evil: 
Gotta second what Foo said. The skin tone and stone work are spot on but the gold looks to shiny for a 3000 year old dead dude.

Bet he'll be happy next to Avaris and Queen Nefer-titty :naughty:

Looking good!
But I agree with Mr. Butterfly guy; the shinyness must go ;)
A few washes (greenish/sepia) should do the trick

Needs more boobs (aside from those of us replying in this thread)!  :razz:

Looks great! I love the little details, like the rings on his fingers. You really need to do some tutorial DVD's or YouTube or something. I'd pay money for it.
