In Living Kolor Boston!   Leave a comment

In Living Kolor Boston was this weekend and it was a blast!  Seven hours of driving both ways to Lot F Gallery, an awesome gallery space tucked away right in Boston, were well worth it.  A ton of people showed up for both the live painting and the gallery opening, and a ton of toys got painted.  Max Toy Co, Onell, and resin artist Dustin Nakagawa all provided a pile of blanks for painting.  It was great to see old friends, make new ones, and see people who had never painted before try out Monster Kolor spraycans and airbrushing.  I painted the mini Eyezon above, on clear green vinyl with sparkles…

 

…this mini Argus on red vinyl.  I slathered it with pink peal, and then tried out the MK rattle can matte finish, which gave it a great finish.

I also picked up this awesome little resin by Dustin Nakagawa, named Gamusa.  He’s clearly inspired by Zollmen’s Zudon, but has some differences that make him stand out, and is a perfectly sized and shaped little resin buddy.  I also worked on a blank Gamusa that I will post up when I finish.

Another shot of Gamusa.  The loose sprays work really well on the rough sculpt, and manage to highlight the details really well.  I should also mention that this guy has a great heft to him, and seems to be cast from a really nice resin.

 

 

Sunguts Xabungle Walk Machines   Leave a comment

When not making fun, weird kaiju, Sunguts took the time a few years back to make a vinyls of a pair of the secondary Walk Machine mecha from Xabungle.  The ‘work’ mecha in Xabungle were all pretty goofy, so they make for great sofubi.  Even the roll-cage frames are vinyl, after having had the inside parts cut out.  Something I never realized until I got mine were that they also come with little DIY flesh vinyl pilot busts that you need to trim, and paint if desired.  Obviously I painted them.  The pilot busts are about a quarter of an inch tall, so I threw a little color on them to make them stand out.

 

Marmit Parababy Mogera with Missile Truck   Leave a comment

This was a commissioned pair of figures by a man after my own heart, a Mogera collector.  I wanted to contrast the alien war machine of Mogera with the grungy Ground Defense Force missile truck.

Real X Head Zombie Akro-kaiser   Leave a comment

This bad boy is one of my contributions to the July Monster Invitational Show at FOE.  He’s dark and scary, and I went super technical on this one.  Everything is Monster Kolor except the shiny blood drip detail work.

Super7 x Paul Kaiju Partyball ‘Khornate’   Leave a comment

Partyball is Paul Kaiju’s contribution to the Monster Family line, and a super fun little sculpt.  This custom will be at the  FOE Monster Invitational Show in July.  I continued my experimentation with mixed finishes and also tried something else in a fit of inspiration.  I had been looking at Warhammer 40k models and was inspired to try out some more technical airbrushing to do glowing engraved symbols.

M1GO ‘Real Type’ Vira Seijin   1 comment

Vira Seijin hails from Ultra Seven and is totally silly looking.  The sculpt screams ‘real plant’ to me, so I had at it on a flesh vinyl blank.  This guy will be at the FOE Monster Invitational Show in July.

Max Toy Co ‘Real Type’ Tripus   Leave a comment

Because I’m feeling nice, I figured I’d give you guys a FOE Show teaser this week.  This guy will be a the  FOE Monster Invitational Show in July.  He’s a realistic take on the mini Tripus sculpt flesh blank.  I went for matte with shading on the squishy bits and shiny jade-pearl for the fish scales.

Incubot ‘Khorne Infernal’ Nekosaurus   Leave a comment

This guy was the main event from the Khorne-inspired painting frenzy, and for my own collection.  I painted the inside with red pearl and then clear red, and painted the details from the outside.  The burning hot markings and leaking power were finished tinted white lines applied with a razor sharp brush.
