A wonderful figure finally got an appropriate paintjob :).
Call it a Megalania and it IS prehistoric.

Another gorgeous piece and an appropriate colour for it at last. The original is curiously green.

Great! :) The Papo Komodo Dragon is such a fine sculpt but I have to agree, the original green is strange indeed.

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a T-rex by Krentz? My friends all have Sideshow, I must make amends.

That's a real beauty! Nice color scheme too man!Those flying reptiles evolved iin to bats these days, similar way of flying & walking also how the wing surface is formed of a skin layer instead of feathers.

Once again a wonderful piece. :) And you even captured the slightest details including that interrupted dark line along the lower jaw.

Awesome ! the eye is immediately drawn to the head..but there does appear to be some slight , subtle shading on the wings as well. Love it.

That Hatz is now a gorgeously handsome fella, Copper! I always thought his original colors looked like they were borrowed from a baby shower. LOL! And I also really like your color scheme for the Papo "Megalania". Curious about the tongue dismemberment, though.  ???

thank you everyone for the comments!

the dismemberment of the tongue was just for my own preferences.

...wha?   :o

Anyway yeah beautiful work!  I like the work on the head obviously but the body has some nice subtle details too!  I agree with meso i never much cared for the original colors always seemed a bit cartoony for my taste.

I think he meant that they show some convergent traits, as both pterosaurs and bats are quadrupedal flying animals (unlike birds).

And of course, lovely paint job!

They are flying reptiles but not lizards no, only for a common person they would be flying lizards, also such a wrong way to describe them haha xD
