Frog Champion from Gencon

Frog Champion from Gencon
Here’s one of the other minis I took to the Gencon competition this year. He was the one I was most pleased with, but the Dark Sword competition this year was really strong, and he didn’t come home with one of their nice trophies. So I got a few more Dark Sword minis to do ...

Wighted Companion Cake Topper

Wighted Companion Cake Topper
Sometimes I feel like I’m not nearly as creative as some of my clients on these cake toppers. And it is times like these that I’m reminded how much I like working with the people I do. Here’s one of the geek cake toppers that I finished recently, and it involved this lovely cube: See? ...

Santana Ortega

Santana Ortega
For this year’s painting competition at Gencon, I decided to paint up a Santana Ortega (that I got as a sort of stealth prize from Wyrd last year). The competition this year was pretty stellar, so I was proud when she took first place in Wyrd single miniature (I placed ahead of one of my ...

New Expansion for Super Dungeon Revealed

New Expansion for Super Dungeon Revealed
I stopped by the Soda Pop booth at Gencon and got to take a look at what they had coming up for Super Dungeon. Due to some mail issues, they didn’t have any of the prototype minis to show off, so right now we’re just going with the artwork. ¬†Of course, I’m excited from there, ...

Well armed zombie cake toppers

Well armed zombie cake toppers
Well, we figure in the next five to seven years, they’re going to make it happen. The weaponry we’ve always wanted, that we’ve always seen in our favorite trilogy (and those three prequels) will finally be something we can use. Shortly, this will be followed by the zombie apocalypse, but that way we’ll all be ...

Noraland Fairy Princess Ballerina Infantry

Noraland Fairy Princess Ballerina Infantry
Here are some minis from Thunderbolt Mountain. Fairy Princess Ballerina Infantry charged with defending Noraland’s borders from the incursions of Theoland (watch out for the Ninja Cannons). Tom Meier’s work is uncompromisingly realistic, so we have expressive faces and proper little girl proportions. And they’re very small. Anyway, here’s what I did with them.

Top Hats vs. Zombies cake toppers

Top Hats vs. Zombies cake toppers
This couple wanted a Victorian theme for their cake topper. I loved making the old clothing, and firearms. And the hat just tops it all off: And some Victorian Zombies to go with. Or against, as it were. These two were a little more modern (with the Uzi and assault rifle) but the top hat ...

Halo Spartan Cake topper

Halo Spartan Cake topper
Here are some recent cake toppers that are quite a bit different from the usual bunch that I make. These two actually started life as official Halo Reach action figures, and I altered the faces and weaponry to look more like my clients (and got rid of the signs of action figures on them (like ...

Bookending with the color wheel.

Bookending with the color wheel.
Ok, so it has been a little while that I’ve been looking into all of the wonderful things to do with color theory, and I’ve come out with a few things to share. The first one is a technique that I’ve come to call Bookending. First off, let’s have a look at the color wheel. ...
