    Re: Hellopike Custom Kaiju

    These look great!

    At first I was on the fence about them but after looking through the pics, I'm totally feelin' the bold black stripes. I think their hard edges provide a nice contrast to the smooth transitions between the other colors.

    Nice work, dude.

    Re: Its Nearly Halloween...

    the biskup guy lends itself well to that earth color scheme for whatever reason. the contrast with the lines on the face works well

    the rangeas is coming acrosss a little flat. it needs a little pop somewhere it seems

    Re: Its Nearly Halloween...

    The Rangeas might be a tad flat but it doesn't really bother me at all...in a way, it's refreshing to see a break from outrageous colors and see a paint job that is both well-executed and subtle.

    The only thing I'd like to see different on it would be for you to make his fingernails match the claws on his feet. That's not even a critique, just my personal preference.

    Nice job, dude!

    Really nice Damnedron. The little details in the eyes and mouth are fantastic and the way the colors are separated really brings out the "drippiness" of the sculpt.

    Another awesome custom, man. Nice! 8)

    Man I paint a lot of Rangeas!

    Thanks for the pics of the Dam Brenda! I only got a few before I sent it off! Here's another Rangeas I painted for my own collection that I didn't post here:

    here it is with some of my other custom Rangeas, sharing the shelf with some of the big boys, Paul Kaiju, LASH, Joe and T9G himself.

    Btw, if anyone wants to have me paint something, just drop me a line! I'm open to commissions, trading, collaborations, whatever!

    thanks for looking!

    Re: Man I paint a lot of Rangeas!

    Thanks everybody! Mecha, I'll get a picture of my other Kaiju shelves soon, but its not much, just 4 shelves worth.

    Bert, send me a Rangeas and I'll paint it... ;) I wish I didn't have to let so many of them go in the past, I'd like to have a collection of the buggers that could match Brenda's Damnedrons, but you know how things go..

    I got to paint a bit today while I listened to the Eagles-Falcons game, and I'm happy with the results... its something I've never painted before..
