We can’t stop here, this is sort of, well not really, bat country! My pal Jim and I have been busy bees, he more or less a lot more than me. Current results for our little competition are up! Jim is still leading… like a mother trucker with FIVE whole achievements and 15 finished models! […]

HiO ’19 – Catching up on progress already made

As mentioned in the post before this one, Jim has already finished a bit of his Heat is On achievements. Currently he has two finished achievements and one in progress. His first was to paint this fella/gal using an airbrush. A tool he is not really familiar with (one I will be exploiting for the […]

A Year Without Posting

Holy shit! Time sure does fly. I am really sorry I haven’t been posting anything as of late (past year…┬áhar, har…). I guess my drive for it has flown for a while. A lot has happened and unfortunately I haven’t been able to uphold my ideals or my wishes. I did get quite a lot […]

A Shift in Painting: Getting Serious!

The Problems With Black Primer

So I attempted to paint my Dreadball team and it’s vibrant, colorful and especially bright color scheme on a black primer foundation. It sucks like heck to attempt to cover up such a dark color with such a bright one. I sought out some help from fellow painters in a Facebook painter community and got […]

Making a Dreadball Team Part 1 (Color Scheme)

The time has come for me to work on my Dreadball team. The crowd is growing anxious to see some action, so I must make haste (relatively…). In this post I will deal with some of my thoughts on creating my own personal DB team and the color scheme with all of the other shenanigans […]

Do not worry! I am still alive, sort of.

This is gonna be a long post, so if you wanna tldr, read this: “I am awesome.” K? Good. It is still, in some peculiar way, Gremlin Month! Bam! I haven’t been painting as much as I would have liked, due to lack of time, ambition and motivation. Work has been pretty draining as of […]
