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!

M1 Ultra Monster Bemlar Custom   Leave a comment

prs-bemlar-11

Bemlar has the dubious distinction of being the first Ultra Monster to face an Ultraman, way back in 1966.  It’s a solid design that still holds up, and M1’s sculpt is a great representation, capturing Bemlar’s weird upright stance with just the right amount of stylization.  The toy is covered with terrific textures that made painting this guy a blast.  I painted Bemlar at the last Monster Kolor paint class, where I had access to the full host of MK goodies.  I had just come back from seeing Godzilla 2014 the night before, which is incredible and everyone should see.  I was really smitten by how hard it was to figure out what color Goji was in that film, so I wanted to try something like that for myself.  I used a lot of strong directional sprays, a couple of metallic colors, clear colors, and some final pearl work to make Bemlar look a different color from pretty much every direction.  I tried to capture that in the photos by taking shots from different angles.  He’s blue in some, green in others, with yellow and copper hues showing up as well.  Painted on flesh vinyl visible on the arms.

It was fun to flex all my airbrushing muscles after having done nothing but real type weathered robot figures for so long.  Think I’ll have to find time for a few more bright and shiny toys in the future…

Star Wars 1/6 Scale Gonk Droid 3D Printed   5 comments

I’ve been on a bit of a Star Wars kick lately, sparked in part by realizing how awesome the current 1/6 scale offerings available are.  There’s all sorts of cool clone troopers and bounty hunters and all the great, colorful characters for sale, but droids seem to get a bit of a raw deal.  There’s a couple of protocol droid and astromech molds available, but they are either old cheapie Hasbro toys or outrageously overpriced Medicom toys.  There are so many other great background droid designs that I love, so I decided to take matters into my own hands.  The Gonk Droids, or Power Droids depending on who you ask, are such a classic, simple, goofy design that a Gonk was the obvious starting point.  Read on after the jump to see some behind the scenes of my design process and lots of photos.
