Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries Glyos Custom Release with Monster Kolor!   Leave a comment

IMG_20140527_080503Just posted to Instagram and figured I should put it here as well.  I’ll be having a Glyos custom release on the Monster Kolor site in a few weeks, so here’s a quick peak until everything’s photographed!

PRS ‘Clover’ Style Gundam at Winter Wonderfest   Leave a comment

When I posted the finished shots of my Master Grade RX-78-2 Gundam painted with Monster Kolor, Matt Walker aka Dead Pre$idents asked me if he could display it at the booth he was sharing with Max Toy Co at Winter Wonder Festival in Japan.  Monster Kolor paint has been a huge success for Matt, and he is always looking for demonstrations of its use in new and creative ways.  My MK on plastic Gundam model fit the bill, and was shipped off to Japan for display at the show.  These pics of the booth come courtesy of Kaiju Korner Andy, who has been providing the best English-language coverage of Japanese shows and festivals out there for a couple of years now.  Go check out the rest of his extensive WonderFest coverage here.  He took a gazillion photos, and there’s more still to be posted.

Here’s a shot of the whole Max Toy Co and Friends booth!  My Gundam was in good company.  I think it’s giving Max Toy Co’s new micro Kaiju Negora sculpt a bit of a shakedown!

Recently I have been getting back into the Takara ‘SF Land’ lines, Henshin Cyborg, Microman, Diaclone, and, the redheaded stepchild, Blockman.  I love the interconnectedness of the 5mm-compatible lines, and how they all exist as sort of different scales of the same world.  Henshin Cyborg is all about detailed character toys, Diaclone is about the interaction between little men and their massive transforming war machines, and Microman is sort of the happy medium.

What’s funny is that Blockman, a line of build-able simple robot figures that serve as both building block and robot toy, are secretly also in Diaclone scale.  The little chrome pilots that fit into Blockman cockpits are nothing more than non-posable Diaclone drivers.  Awesome.

I also got this fantastic resin figure from Sharkfist Design through the Kaiju for Japan sale.  This Nurikabe is a wall oni, stalwart stone defender.  It is also fantastically sculpted, painted, and features a glow in the dark scar.

Glyos Ceekoar Custom Release   Leave a comment

Ceekoar is one of the fringe worlds of the Glyos universe, known for its harsh gaseous environment.  It is constantly under siege because deep under its cloudy exterior it was the site of many ferocious Old War battles, resulting in the inhospitable environment today.  The survivors of Ceekoar were changed by the new environment and now dedicate themselves to keeping the Old War tech decaying on Ceekoar out of anyone’s hands.

Glyos Blighted Phanost   Leave a comment

 

My brother made a custom Phanost build that incorporated some metal parts we got from the recent drop and other places that he wanted me to paint.  One of the parts was a metal Crayboth claw, so he got a huge claw arm and I wanted it to be a focal point.  It was such an unusual build that I couldn’t help but think that the claw must be some sort of mutation or blight this Phanost caught while exploring.  Now, his blighted arm crackles with power even as it corrupts him.

Glyos Customs Step-by-Step- Updated!   1 comment

I’m working on a Glyos commission and a couple additional figures that will end up being for same. I thought it’d be fun to take some quick pictures as the painting progressed so that people could see how I work.  Here’s what we’ve got so far:

Here’s all the parts of what we’re working with… there’s three figures here.  I’m going for primarily blue battle suits, with an as-yet undecided secondary color, and some silver elements.  The Sarvos is supposed to be something of a test-bed unit, with some safety markings on him and a prototype gun and bitchin’ flight pack.  The Buildman Gendrone is going to be his escort type support guy.

Desert Armodoc   Leave a comment

Finished the Desert Armodoc today!  He’s been on the trail of a traveler for what seems like eons, both of them trapped on a world of endless desert.  The Armodoc’s been blasted by winds and scorched by suns, and caked with dust.  I left the eyes, gun tip, and top head ‘vents’ GID vinyl to add a little interest, and the color of the glow vinyl fits right in with the desert faded colors.  The weathering is a combination of oil washes, filters, acrylic chipping, airbrushed paint fading, and dry pigments, all done in layers to give him some history and depth.
