Starting a new one next week

Hi all,

If you want to commission a Grayskull, message me now. I have a new shell, that is in excellent condition and I will start painting it next week. So message me now if you want to pick the colors, or wait and message me after I start painting it, if you just want to buy it before I list it for sale.

But hurry. These things sell fast....

Except the Haunted House one. That one is still available. For the life of me, I don't know why.


Thanks all!

Back to the classics Grayskull #5 done and sold.

 all,
I went back to the classics with my fifth Custom Grayskull. Give the people what they want.

I did. And wow.

What a great response. I had lots of people comment and make offers on this one. Lots of offers. Unfortunately, it is first come-first serve, and I have to sell it to the first person who sends a payment (even a 50% down payment). I wish I had five of these to meet the demand.

I am about to paint a new one. It will be close to this one in its colors. UNLESS... someone orders it and pays before I start painting. Then they can pick the design. Either way, I am excited to make a new one soon.

Until then, here is #5.


Here is the finished castle. Look for the hidden treasure: a key!
One of the details I have started added. Skulls. Man they look good.


I hope you like it.  Remember, I am here if you want to order one as a commission.

Halloween-themed Castle Grayskull for custom #4 FOR SALE!

Hi all.

It's October and I wanted to try something different. So, I decided to do a Spooky Castle Grayskull in a Halloween theme. It was done originally in only black and white. Looked great. Then I added orange accents and at the end dry brushed a coat of green all over.

Check out the pics!

Here it is!


Above you will see the finished product with the skulls, spider webs, and dead brush. I was very happy with how this turned out. Then I added lights!


Behold lights!

The blue LED light string made it look even more creepy. But wait... it was a full moon out....


Full moon setup. Great timing!

This might be my favorite photo of it. Love the angle. 


Skulls detail shot.

Spider Webs.

More webs.

Over all I am happy. I posted this on FB just a little while ago. It is currently FOR SALE!!! So if you are interested, find me on FB or Instagram or email me here: kbreaux23 @ yahoo.com

I am starting a new one this weekend. It will be greens, and stick to the old school style. But I am always looking for fun things to add on.

Thanks all!

Custom Grayskull #3 Classic Medieval Castle Theme

Hi!

So, I want to tell you about the third Castle Grayskull custom I completed. This one was finished about 2-3 weeks ago in mid Sept. It took me a week, start to finish. And when it was done, I posted pics on Instagram and FB... and ZOOOOOOOM! It sold in like 15 mins.

This was not a commission, so I designed it in a style I picked. My goal was to make it look like a classic medieval castle, and I wanted to add some new elements.

Take a look at the process below:



Gesso first! Always! Two layers are better than one.


Black undercoat.

This is the first time I really...really... did a solid black wet undercoat wash. Before, I dry brushed in the cracks only. I think this way, which takes MUCH longer, is better in the end. After it dries it looks scary, which is why I want to do a Halloween themed Castle soon. Maybe next.


About mid way.


At the mid way point. As you can see, the shadows look great. So the wash undercoat works. I am just starting to add in the browns for the wood and stones. Also, I am about to add in some light greens for "painted" stains and mold. This castle is looking exactly how I wanted it at this point.

Fast forward a few days...

After MANY more layers of greens and greys and more black dry brushing and white highlights I am done.

Finished!


Look at how good the moss looks with the grey tones.
And the brown stone!

I added in a new detail on this one. I bought a shiny skull bead and fixed it to the gate door, over the coat of arms skull. It was a perfect fit.


See that kick-ass skull bead. I roughed it up to age it some. But it shines.

Hope you like it. I am working on a new one right now. If you are interested in having me do a custom paint job, just email me. kbreaux23 @ yahoo.com
