    So at Nova I was told of a fairly new painting competition called the Jersey Devil being held in Succasunna, New Jersey at Mythicos Studios. I was in a good mood after getting a gold medal at the Capital Palette I resolved to enter the Jersey Devil. I had planned to enter Joan, a flyer […]

    Hunt for the Jersey Devil Pt.1: Model Choice and Prep

    Despite the ridiculous title, choosing a model and doing the prep work wasn’t too hard this time around.

    So here I am in the middle of November and I have about 3 weeks to finish three entries for two different painting competitions….. how did it come to this?

  • Showcase: Dark Talon

    Showcase: Dark Talon

    In record time I finished this Dark Talon in a little under three weeks from start to finish. Unfortunately I did not take many photos during the painting process apart from the ones I did for the previous post which is a shame because I tried out a lot of different ideas and techniques. One […]

    WIP: Dark Talon

    So I’m still alive but only barely as Papa Nurgle has seen fit to bless me with a raspy throat and difficulty breathing.

    Showcase: Dark Angels Hellblasters

    So I finally finished these Hellblasters that I started about a year ago. That’s right, these guys have been sitting on my workbench basecoated and highlight for almost a year.

    Road to Capital Palette Pt. 4: Smooth Buttery Blends

    I’m writing this after Nova and the Capital Palette had already ended but I’m pretty sure it would feel weird to just jump from base coats to a finished project in this series, so I’ll keep this brief The majority of my time was spent blending the blue on the armor. I had already put […]

    Road to Capital Palette     Pt. 3: All your Base Coats

    So apparently monthly blog posts seem to be more my speed especially considering my ever changing schedule. Regardless, at the time of writing this Nova is only 13 days away for me and I’ve done quite a bit of experimentation and actual work on my piece. However, I don’t want to skip parts of the […]
