Hi everyone; I'm Bryn, one-half of Canadian brother toy-makers King Hideous Toys. We have a thread that was started by the good fella @kid_miracleman over in American Idols, if you'd like to see what we're up to. To teach myself to paint for our eventual toy releases, I thought I'd wreck my own collection and paint my blanks. I welcome any constructive critiques, suggestions or comments about how my painting is going. I've not painted many toys as of yet, so hopefully what I've done so far won't be too heinous. These two toys aren't painted with V-Color. As it was, I didn't then have any V-Color, nor did I then have the proper spary-booth to handle the fumes that V-Color produces. These guys are painted with polyurethane acrylics for the most part. The polyurethane paints are marketed as being highly wear resistant and have excellent adhesive qualities. Do they? Eh, the paint hasn't fallen off, so as far as I can say, it's good. It's not V-Color, though still good. Also, please bear in mind that I am not a particularly skilled photographer, these pictures were taken while juggling a camera and three lights. Having said all that, thank you so much for looking! First toy I painted, ever. Skinner's Abominox! I scored a blank from the first release, and sat on painting it for about a month. I've had this guy painted for quick some time, though haven't fully revealed how I painted him until now. Mr.D-Lux has recently painted one as well, and to be honest I prefer his to mine. If you aren't familiar with his paint work, Mr.D-Lux is worth checking out! So this was it, the first, the maiden voyage! Full frontal. His tookus. Mug shot. Ogos club. Morgogg club. Stayin' fancy. Last Halloween I was very lucky and scored a blank MVH "gangreen" Zug. While on vacation in Osaka. At 8:15 in the morning, sitting at the edge of a tiny bed using a Kobo e-reader's internet browser. As my poor girlfriend tried to sleep through my muttering, cursing and eventual jubilation. So what I do when I get him in the mail? Spend a Saturday night painting in the basement, ironically much a troll. This is the third toy that I've painted. There was a Splurrt Cinema Monster, though that was for a friend and as such I have no pictures. Front shot. Malformed troll butt. Over-lit face. I am not an excellent photographer. The circular indents on the side of his head looked like they could be wounds, at least to me! Side shot, to (hopefully) show some of the color change. Some creepy foot action! Another over-washed light shot. I had a warmer colored bulb in the light that faced him. Again, not the best at this photography thing. Thanks for having a look everyone!
