I’m often getting distracted when I’m painting kits. This results in paints getting dry and wasted (since I’m using acrylics, which dries fast).
Once I’ve been browsing net for reference pics and I’ve found this idea on someone else’s blog. It turns out you can buy such wet palette, but since I’m broke – I decided to make my own.
Here’s short comic about that.
As you could’ve notice – I’m quite inactive recently. So let’s say it straight first:
I didn’t drop GK building as a hobby, don’t worry about that
In my job, my workplace wasn’t really healthy – I’ve been spending 8 hours a day in pretty bad position while working on PC (our desks and screens have been really low situated). And after half year of work I started to feel dizzy more and more often. I thought it was neurosis-related issue (bosses were toxic as hell), but my doc told me to check up, if it isn’t something more serious. After series of examinations (which my employer didn’t like, though I still did my chores on time) it turned out my neck spine isn’t perfectly fine.
Degenerative disc disease.
What it means – I can’t keep my head tilting. Not at all. Because in pretty short period of time it causes me being dizzy. Which makes me uncomfortable while cleaning, cooking and doing other everyday stuff. AND it made drawing and GK building pretty troublesome.
I’ve got bunch of exercises from physiotherapist, so it’s little better now, but damage is done.
I’m slowly rebuilding my whole workspace to be less troublemaking for my spine. So far it’s great, I can do almost everything I used to do before. Except GKs. Not yet.
Though I’m really looking forward it.
Tamiya’s WWII German Machine Gunner (greatcoat) in 1/16 scale.
Figure is hand-painted, using Vallejo’s acrylics, Mr. Metal Color (stainless steel) and chalk pastels were used to achieve weathering effects.
Thanks to my Boyfriend, I can show you those amazing shots.
I’m building this one for my Father. We’ve seen this model few years back, but never had an opportunity to get it. Recently I’ve got it and made a surprise for my Dad. Now I only have to paint it. It’s Tamiya’s model and as you can imagine – it’s really well done, I didn’t have much work to do while assembling.
Here’s first part of WIP, where I start to work on gun, coat and I did base for this figure.
