Kaiju Gumos   1 comment

OK, photos came out better in a little less light so we’re good!

This is the insect-kaiju Gumos, sculpted by Dream Rockets, released in unpainted green vinyl as part of the Battle Pack with Max Toy Co’s unpainted flesh Captain Maxx, used for my Maxx-vell custom.  This is the first kaiju I airbrushed, and it was very different from doing Maxx-vell.  The colors were applied much more roughly, and free-handed, rather than the handpainting and masking and shading of Captain Maxx.  I used a dark green to shade the sculpt, a light green to highlight it, and used the awesome green of the vinyl for the midtones.  Browns and reds for the spines/spikes, and yellow greens for the claws.  The eyes were a bit of an experiment, and I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.  I painted the eyes a very dark silver, and then applied dots of much lighter (GW Mithril) silver in a semi-organized pattern.  I then applied Tamiya Clear Red in a few thin coats, topped off with some Future for shininess, in an attempt to represent iridescent segmented compound insect eyes.

  1. I really love this one. The colors are great, and that Future coating on the eye is killer!

    Beautiful piece, man. Excellent work!
