Something different – Package from Ranalcus

It isn’t typical post you see here.
No worries, there’re two GK minis finished, one far in progress, they’ll get their galleries soon.

But this time, something truly magical happened. 
Ranalcus, who’s affiliated with Fejwsi Figure Collection sent me this fabulous package full of goods ♥

His packages usually contains Gunpla models, mini 4WD cars, modeling tools, figures, manga, anime, games and such.
Here are contents of mine package (keep in mind, I’m huge noob when it comes to various fandoms, so I have no clue what I’m looking at really often) :

 

This kind of model is something new for me, but it just makes me even more excited to put it together. The fact it actually moves makes it even better 😀 Though I guess the most excited is my father, who always wanted to get any of those.

 

I don’t know anything about Gundam universe. It’s not like I don’t like it or anything, I just never really had any opportunity to get into it. Still I’m looking forward to learn more and build this one 😀 I already promised WIP pics and that I’ll actually paint this one and that mini4WD model (Meaning: no lazy, straight forward from package building).

 

Sangokushi Taisen TCG deck. I have no idea, yet it’s definitely my kind of stuff art-wise 
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I need to explore this topic further, later.

 

I have no damn clue what to say about this one. Loli, nekomimi, sketches. Two brochures. Not my kind of stuff, but I think I know someone who’ll know more about (I’m looking at you, Frono).

 

Sengoku Basara on DVD and Limited Edition of Evangelion:1.01. There’s not much to say. That’s my kind of stuff ♥

 

Bunch of sanding paper holders. Package contains said holders and sanding paper with glue. I mean, so you can cut pieces and stick to those holders. For real. Those geometric shapes are definitely going to help me while building those models I’ve just got.
And there’re magazines and book.
Most of you probably heard about Replicant magazines – those contain figure photos, some GK building tips.
But what took most of my attention, is How to build Garage kit vol.1 book from Model Kingdom. On ~150 there’s explained whole process of creating a GK master, as well as how to make casts. Lots of sculpting techniques, tips and such. Definitely I’m going to read it through.

 

Last, but not least, there’s limited edition of Doki Doki Majo Shinpan 2 Duo (どきどき魔女神判2) for NDS. The idea for the game is bizarre, I need to check it out 😀
The amount of content in box is quite enormous. I wish I could have writing skills to describe everything I found there properly. But I don’t. I’m amazed how much effort they’ve put into making those special items.
 

So that was first package I’ve received, for which I’m grateful ;_; ♥ Thank you ♥

Next update should contain GKs.
Enjoy!

New Gallery – Tyranid Scythed Hierodule

Well, I haven’t been here for a while.
But here’s an update! Just finished Warhammer 40k commission for my friend.
It’s Tyranid Scythed Hierodule from Forge World, hand-painted with Citadel paints.
I was supposed to make it look easy to copy for my friend.

I have a few started/ready to paint figures, but somehow I can’t make myself into mood to make any. I get distracted way too easily, can’t find enough time to just sit and paint without breaks, or my neck starts to hurt. Soon™.

Enjoy!

Water Palette

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.

Yes, I lol at my own handwriting.

Small update (what’s going on)

Hello everyone~!

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.
Hopefully soon 🙂

Meanwhile, some EVA-05 for you

Take care!

New Gallery and WIP Video – Arzuros Airou

I haven’t upload anything for a while, mostly I didn’t have anything worth showing (random WIP pictures and such). Finally, I managed to finish Arzuros Airou kit I’ve got from GK-Model. Here it is 🙂

Figure is hand-painted with Vallejo paints. It was pleasurable to build and to paint.

Enjoy.
