Anyway, I’ve been doing things and stuff, and didn’t have anything worth sharing for a long while.  However, recently I’ve painted some things and thus I finally have something that I can share!  Yay!

I started Aby2 way, ...

One of the key pieces I worked on was a Forsaken for the Legion of Aquablight.  I ...

[HtT] Painting Faces & Eyes

I was asked on Twitter how I paint faces, so here’s a tutorial covering a basic human male face.  At the end, I’ll cover how I tweak this process for female or non-human faces.

I’m using 100% P3 paints for this, and I’m primarily using a wet palette so I have fairly transparent paint.  This ...

[Aquablight] TempleCon 2015 Hardcore Master Craftsman Army

This post has a ton of pictures.  Be warned.  Also, you can click on any of them to see a picture roughly 8 times larger.

I know TempleCon was three months ago. I’ve waited this long to show off the army because PP took photos of it for No Quarter at TempleCon, and they haven’t printed ...

Customized YT-1300 Project Recap

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a friend of mine asked if I would be up for replicating what JediRob had done here.

The project began with cutting out bits from the Millennium Falcon. Then, the holes left by the cockpit hallway and satellite were plugged up. Once construction of the ...

[Resurrection]: War Walker, Part 2

First, everything got primed black (except the canopy, that got primed white).

Then, I diligently and slowly put down about 3-4 layers of thinned Murderous Magenta (P3) on the spots I wanted the main color.

 

Next, I mixed some Carnal Pink (P3) into the Murderous Magenta, and put this down in the brightest spots.
