Don't tell me you're still on that Darth Vatos thing. Again.


Going through the first steps for what i hope will turn out to be one of my next two projects for the coming months. The initial idea of using a skateboard deck as a support dates back to last... July already. I'm finally coming closer to it!

After a significant time spent at looking for references and inspiration images that would fit with what I had in mind, I think I came across the right things. I'll tell more about it when it gets more concrete.

5000 views!

 
10000 views!? Well, yes and no. A significant portion comes from "spambots", a few from my checking what the posts look like, and some more from automatic verifications made by Google. Wha-ever! Let's say at least half of them are legitimate, so...

5000 views fo' sho', mofos!

MM... vegetable villains!

 ... some more... playing with Stylefile markers and Promarkers. More about these soon!


bad taste pt. 10


Various quick attempts at sketching and coloring over the last couple of months. A few of them might evolve to concepts for future sculpts.

The painter is dead, but his brushes keep painting.


Long time, no post. I've been busy with a big project... moving! Everything still needs to find a place, then I can start working on "decent" projects again!

In the meanwhile, I'll gradually post some of the little experiments I've done in the last months.

Mojo rebooting!

Playing with markers

Long time, no post. I haven't touched paint nor putty since last Painting Crusade. Among others, I'm in the process of moving to another place. Right now, a third of my workshop stuff is in boxes. And the other third is waiting to be packed. That will be a good occasion to get rid of some never-to-be-done projects.

At least, I keep on exploring the drawing side of life, when I get some time. Currently I'm experimenting with alcohol markers. Here's the outcome, with Stylefile brush markers, on layout paper.

The Ice Cream Man project (update 22/02/2017) ... It's on and crack'n!!!



YES!

Seems like this project is coming to an end! It still needs a base, and its ice cream man Vato, and it will be ready to hit the streets of your neighborhood! First stop: next Painting Crusade!

Orale ese!

Some thoughts about the armature and the adhesion of putty



Ensuring the adhesion of crude putty on an armature is one of the recurrent potential pitfalls, early in the process of sculpting a miniature.
