PRHI Glyos ‘Real Type’ Customs on Monster Kolor   Leave a comment

2014-05-26 23.55.28

More good news!  The unofficial Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries Glyos ‘Real Type’ release is now up on the Monster Kolor web shop.  This is a project long in the making.  Some of these customs were started a few years ago, but I finally had some time recently to sit down and finish them (and more!)  There are fourteen customs in a variety of builds and themes, from a couple simple Travellers to heavily customized builds.  Everything is painted with Monster Kolor paints, with acrylics, oils, and pigments for the heavy weathering they all received.  A couple feature rare production Glyos heads spruced up, and one even has the last of my Brownnoize Productions metal cast Phanost heads.  Each one of these is fully finished and weathered, and thanks to the MK paint they are totally durable and playable.  Head on over to the PRHI category on the MK web shop to buy them now, or look below for individual links to each figure.

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…
