Welcome to the new EZPainter blog. For a long time i've worked in relative silence.
I am unsure as to why as i talk to my clients daily but i think its a nice idea to start blogging my work again for my fans and for myself.
I plan to be releasing updates hopefully once a week of my mixed prjects i've got on the table. In this first post i am sharing a small commission i've just finished for one of my oldest clients, Dave. Me and dave have a very long working relationship and his loyal trust of my work, style, speed and efforts has always been flattering and boosting for me. Dave often sends me small orders of about 6-10 models and as such i tend to get the chance to "play" with painting.
DOCTOR WHO BADDIES
I think these great "old school" white metal sculpts are from Crooked Dice who make some of the best doctor who villains i've ever seen. They could be from black tree designs but i think they lost the doctor who license a long time ago. Dave provided me with these images to copy, and from them i got the idea of "60's office men" so i chose colors to suit.
Dave has been a client so long that a lot of the work i've done for Dave is done using my "old" style of block colors/ ink/ flat drybrush so many of the mdoels i do for Dave i do this way for continuity within his collection. For these models i also picked out the skin tones and metal after inking just so that they had that extra little pop.
These Warlord druids have long been on my paint list. I first eyed them back in 2009 when i was living in cardiff. Dave threw these in the package for me to put a lick of paint on. It was fun painting the tattoos but i have a gut feeling Dave might want a little touch up on those, they hold up much better at table eye view than they do in photography. Free hand isn't my forte but it does still excite me, as does any challenge.
A blog for the w.i.p element of the EZPainter. In recent years work has been stacked, split and juggled as opposed to singular focus on each,
