Glyos Blue Squad Psychedelic Grenadier   Leave a comment

This guy was the figure that started the Blue Squad idea.  He’s some kind of cool alien, so he was commissioned to have a colorful MK-sprayed mushroom head like a Matango figure and then a flat color weathered suit.  I figured if I was already painting some weathered figures, I oughta do a couple.

Glyos Desert Bug   Leave a comment

This is another commissioned custom build.  The only input from the customer was shiny eyes, and maybe a desert theme, so I ran with that idea and practiced some weathering techniques.  Really happy with this guy.

Prometheum5 x Max Toy Co Neo Hawaii Eyezon (Sold Out)   Leave a comment

Good news!

The Neo Eyezon Hawaii two-pack I painted with Mark Nagata using the Monster Kolor Hawaii set just went up for sale to the Max Toy Co Club members.  I am really excited to see this project completed, and had a great time with it. Working with someone I respect and look up to was a blast, and I think both figures in the set came out really fantastic, and complement each other very well!

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.

Max Toy Co Red Pontiac Eyezon Revised   Leave a comment

The Red clear Eyezon I was working on needed a little revision, and here is the final result.  The new brighter eyes really pop alongside the shiny colors, and the blacked out back eyes add some interesting contrast.

Max Toy Co ‘Red Pontiac’ Clear Kaiju Eyezon   Leave a comment

I finished this latest Kaiju Eyezon over the weekend and snapped some nice bright pictures today.  The goal for this figure was to change it up from the earthy potato palette of the first two Eyezons, and go with some much brighter colors, and a much greater emphasis on the clear and the visible guts.  I’m really happy with how this one came out… the colors have a great deal more subtlety than my other figures, with many layers, while still retaining a surprising amount of clarity.  The silhouette of the guts can be made out with the figure in your hands, and up against the light, this figure goes up like a Christmas tree.  I cleaned off a few critical spots of paint so that the guts could really be seen in-hand.
