Send in the Fleet!

Back in December 2013 I wrote a post about a Kickstarter for Temporus the Game that I was painting some models for. Check out the original post here for the prototype and color recipe. Well, the Kickstarter was successfully funded, which means I had 4 large and 5 small replicas of the same ship to paint up ASAP. Here’s a picture of the final product. The large versions are about 5″ long and the small about 2.5″ long.

When I shipped away the package it gave me an opportunity to add some extra promo swag for the blog. I figured the backers who received these hand painted goodies would like to see a little bit more of my stuff (shameless plug tee-hee). I’m gonna start making more of these to bring to conventions and such just to get my name out there.

A huge thanks to my good friend Alex Cheparev for referring me for the project and to Erik Umenhofer for trusting me to painting these awesome models. Make sure to check out Temporus the video game. Later space cadet!

Fleshy Bits: Purple

Come play with my fleshy bits! Hehe. Welcome to the first of hopefully many more posts I’ll be writing covering how to paint flesh tones. One of the members of a Facebook group that I help admin requested this one (thanks for the idea Ulises).
When it comes to painting flesh I’ve found that starting with a cool tone and working your way up to a warm tone makes for a more believable effect. Please excuse my slightly crappy iPhone pics.
