Lots of completed projects to share here at Castle BROSKULL.
First off, I want everyone to understand... I will customize anything you send me. Not just MOTU and GI JOES.
In order to prove this, I had someone send me a Star Wars Snowspeeder. I offered them a deal. Send me a nice one, I will custom paint it and send it back. 1/2 price! Even paying 1/2 the shipping.
So here are some progress and finished shots. As you will see the Snowspeeder arrived in good condition but dirty and yellow/brown with age. No worries. I always clean the toys I am sent first. It's part of the deal!
|Dirty, but it good shape.|
|I undercoated this black to pull up the details. Trust me. You'll see.|
|Here you can see I have started the brush work to make it look battle worn.|
I am primarily a brush artist. So that means, I will use a brush to apply paint to my projects. It gives them soul. See all the texture here!?! I was given full range to do whatever I wanted, so I wanted to paint a ship that looked like it had been around for years. Survived a lot of battles, but had smoke and fire and phaser wear and tear. So I added some color to the snowspeeder....some beige and peach tones.
|Finished indoor shot!|
|See the stains and splatter. I even used an ink to color stain the windshield.|
|Snowspeeder looking amazing!|
|Look at the details and texture that comes alive when you brush paint it.|
So I am happy and I want to do more Star Wars projects! I might have some lined up in a month.
Now...that's not all I want to share. Check this out.
I have been doing a lot of HISS Tanks from the GI JOE line. This one was a commission to take a Cobra tank and make it into a GI JOE tank that Blowtorch would love to drive. So I painted it in a vermilion and yellow camo color scheme and added some smoke damage to it. So it looks like it has been in some fires. I also bought replacement stickers to decorate it with.... but the most fun part??? I added the Pac Rat Flamethrower to the front.
|Blowtorch can style and profile.|
|Flame thrower in front. Made to look like its melted some.|
|Side and back view.|
|Happy with results.|
I enjoyed transforming and customizing this one. It was a challenge to make it look weathered with smoke and fire. I tried to just do some light(not too heavy) effects.
Hope you all enjoy these updates.
More to come.
