So I can Sew!

By on June 25, 2016

So until yesterday, I didn’t really know how to sew. I had a sewing machine, but it was an arcane mystery to me. Girlfriend and I paid for some classes at the local JoAnns, since they do private lessons now, and we fixed that right quick. This morning I…

Paint on the Armor

By on June 23, 2016

I have an assortment of Createx Faskolor paints in my workshop from my tabletop wargaming days, so I mixed up a sickly looking blend of yellow, orange, red, and a touch of black to get a nicely thinned-out yellow for lining the armor. We airbrushed this onto the exterior…

Arise from the ashes!

By on June 19, 2016

I decided this project was going to be something I finished for NYCC, and it is warm enough that I don’t mind dusting off my workspace again, so I’m chugging through getting the rest of this done.

Fallout Twitch Overlay

By on December 21, 2015

Fallout is a great game, and one I have been playing for years. Fallout 4 is hands-down my favorite installation in the series, and to coincide with its release, I decided to make a quick pip-boy-esque overlay. I borrowed a lot of the feel from the UI aesthetics of…

Never stop sanding!

Biggest problem areas are around the cheeks and front grill, since I am nauseatingly OCD about trying to get this stuff right and am now…
