Prometheum5's collected works
Another 3D printed Microman scale (1/18) CD-1-L Blockman figure has been added to the ranks! This one was a commission by a big Micro collector and friend of mine, looking to add some cross-pollinated SFLand action to his collection. This guy was painted at the same time as the Brute Squad Bounce Torotise, featuring similar techniques and finish. Painted with Monster Kolor and acrylics.
Here’s the family photo of the three fully painted Blockmen I’ve completed. More photos after the jump.
Red vs. Blue!
The Tenacious Toys and Monster Kolor Custom Toy Show opens at P!Q in Grand Central Terminal NYC tonight. The theme of the show was toys painted with Monster Kolor paints, and what would an MK show be without some real type, flat finish, weathered 3D printed mecha action? I was asked to participate and couldn’t say no. I was pretty short on time, but I was able to dig into my stash and piece together one last classic 1/12 scale Bounce Tortoise, the last of its kind. This Tortoise is from Brute Squad, featuring a red and white scheme where I tried some new tricks for adding color variation while applying the main colors, and a new acrylic wash mix that I’m pretty pleased with. The other thing I tried on this guy was to skip my usual chipping step. All the weathering here is a combination of airbrushed fading, color modulation, and washes. I’m pretty pleased with the results, and hope to see some great pics of the last Bounce Tortoise making its debut at the opening tonight!
