Zombie Wedding Cake Toppers- Improvised Weaponry

Zombie Wedding Cake Toppers- Improvised Weaponry
Zombies don’t really announce that they’ll be coming back from the dead to eat you (unless you count the horrific groans that herald their craving for human flesh). While many of the cake toppers I make represent people who have planned ahead- who have an M4 and plenty of ammunition around- every once in a ...

Mushroom, Mushroom!

Mushroom, Mushroom!
Here is one of my favorite sets of minis, of all time. They’re the Fungal Growth Spawn point for Super Dungeon Explore, and I based the color schemes on the various colors of mushroom monsters from the Dragon Quest series.

Fantasy Cosplayer Cake Topper

Fantasy Cosplayer Cake Topper
The genres of cake toppers that I make are really determined by my clients. Since they’re all custom made, we really must make any sort of thing that people ask for. I always love the ones that I never would have thought of myself. Such is usually the case with the cosplayer cake toppers. With ...

Goldar and Seoni- variations on skin tones

Goldar and Seoni- variations on skin tones
Here are a few minis that I got to paint for a client. They’re both pewter, since I’m sure someone is curious. I’ve got a bones Goldar that I’ve been itching to paint up, and I’m sure I’ll get to do him sometime soon too. The skin tones were definitely a centerpoint for both of ...

Mix it up: Fantasy and Science Fiction Cake Toppers

Mix it up: Fantasy and Science Fiction Cake Toppers
A lot of the cake toppers I make express a fandom of some sort. They range from very specific (like the Halo or Tardis cake toppers) to broader areas (like fantasy armor or weaponry). Now, I don’t know that I’ve ever met a fan who was only a fan of one thing. So a lot ...

Heroquest- a few classic minis

Heroquest- a few classic minis
I love classic minis. I don’t know why exactly, but there’s something charming about older miniatures that I’m really fond of. Often, when someone does a dashing job on a mini, we say “You’ve done justice to that mini.” On that line of thinking, I feel like with older minis, the painter is doing them ...

Wedding Cake Toppers With Swords

Wedding Cake Toppers With Swords
I’m a fan of quite a few different fantasy settings, and sword fighting seems like it is central to a lot of it. So I’m not terribly surprised that I get so many chances to make swords and magical weapons. Here are three toppers with three different sets of fantastic weaponry: I really liked making ...

Dismembered Zombie Wedding Cake Topper

Dismembered Zombie Wedding Cake Topper
Here’s a couple that wanted a portrayal of their triumph. Rather than having the zombies climbing up the cake, they opted to the dismembered remains of the zombies portrayed beneath their feet. I know we’re all glad that they both made it.

Byakko: Chibi Ninja Wolverine

Byakko: Chibi Ninja Wolverine
So, I’ve got some minja all stars that I’m getting to paint up bit by bit. Here’s one of the ones that I was apparently most excited about: His name is Byakko, and he’s definitely a reference to Wolverine’s days as a samurai (a backstory we have Chris Claremont and Frank Miller to thank for). ...

Custom Wedding Cake Topper- side by side 1

Custom Wedding Cake Topper- side by side
Most of the cake toppers that I make have some geeky theme to them. Maybe the bride and groom are fighting off zombies, or they’re holding videogame controllers or cosplaying. But, ultimately, I’m making custom cake toppers, and they can be in any pose- doing almost anything. The field for this is wide open. There ...
