Whilst waiting for supplies for my Steam Punk series I thought I'd finish the Mishka Dunnys that I bought quite some time ago. I also wanted to try out my new amazing Iwata Eclipse Airbrush. All I can say about it, is that it is amazing. Sooooo smooth compared to my old one and such a nicely weighted piece of kit. It rests amazingly well in your hand. I will get some more accessories and nibs for it though so that I can start to work on some very fine detail. I can definitely recommend the Iwata Eclipse to anyone who wants to start airbrushing. A++++++++++!
Now, I wanted to focus more on the painting on these two as the sculpt would be limited. So I decided to work with nice gradients and animal print. Animal print have been on my list for a while, but I haven't really made anything that it would suit until now. I also wanted to give these real bright colours as I tend to work with pastel and quite dull colours normally. The challenge was to look outside of the box and come up with the colour palettes. It is safe to say that I need a kick in the right direction when it comes to colour so I had to look at I don't know how many colour palettes online. I finally came up with these which I think compliment each other really well.
The "Keep Watch" Dunny have been great fun to work on and the base sculpt is lovely and detailed. All in all a great experience.
This is Kuma. She's a bundle of joy to say the least. She loves anything sweet and festive and yes, her most favorite thing of all is fancy dress. And she makes all her costumes her self of course.
Gizo and Kuma are the best of friends and Gizo loves fancy dress just as much as Kuma if not even more (but hush don't tell Kuma). Gizo too makes her own costumes but another favorite thing of hers is to make origami.
Gizo and Kuma will be available from my BIg Cartel store on Monday the 21st of September at 9.00 PM BST (GMT+1) at £82.00 each with Free Shipping within the UK (£10.00 for the rest of the world).
