awesome work! Just watched your video of the process you painting this GK , i am shocked and want to paint a same GK, i am wondering if you could tell me the category of Vallejo paints that you used, or just major ones that you remember. I will be very appreciated if you could share your experience, Thank you very much!
Hello! I’m sorry for late reply :C I noticed your comment when I was at work and once I got back home I’ve forgotten to reply and it took me few days to remind myself about it ._.
I’m using Vallejo Model Color series.
Colours I’ve used for sure are:
– Sky Blue
– Blue Violet,
– Light Flesh
– Saddle Brown
– Gunmetal Blue
– Prussian Blue
– Intense Blue
– Metal Medium (it’s kinda transparent/white, but added to any colour gives it metal look)
For eyes, I’ve used mix of transparent green, lemon yellow and gold
I’m sorry again and I hope it help you anyhow.
Good luck with your kit and have fun 🙂
Thanks! I am honored to get your sincerely and detailed reply！It really helps! Your video and this list of colours should be the perfect guide for me to learn hand-painting a GK. 🙂
Your GKs are all well-done and by the way my personally favourite one is the
Amaterasu you posted on 1st August 2013 XD
Thanks again for your reply, it is timely enough. I am glad to have your support and inspired by your compassion. Looking forward to see more your works posting in your gallery!!
I’m really glad I could help!
Feel free to ask questions anytime 🙂
If you’re going to publish either WIP or finished kit pics anywhere – I’d love to see them, if it’s not a problem ^___^
Where did you find the Hakkai figure? I am looking for one now he is my fave :3
My friend had one and kindly agreed to re-sell me it, once she learnt I’m about to build it as a gift for friend 🙂
You can buy bootleg of this model at E2046, they still have two in stock: http://www.e2046.com/product/1471
There’re some more details about kits itself here, you may find them useful while looking for it: http://myfigurecollection.net/item/2955
You’d probably have too look for it at yahoo.co.jp and other Japanese auction sites.
From what I recall, there was also pre-painted version of this figure available. With the same pose, same manufacturer, but PVC. I’ve seen such at e-bay once.
I’m mesmerized by the details on his belt and cigarette. And those awesome flowers, the amount of work you had to put in it. Love this!
For a reason I didn’t mention I’ll make that cigarette C’: I love such details.
Though I’m still ashamed by my airbrush skills D:
I’m glad you like it <3
Love the colours and shading. Just curious will you add some more shades to the hair?
Actually I’ve added some more shading, but didn’t take WIP pictures. Hopefully it’ll be visible once I make gallery.
Thank you for your input, that’s a good point 🙂
Love the colours, especially the thorns 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Cute, but why he has “x” on his eyes?
Because I’ve used original PVC’s pictures for reference and here it has such 🙂
thanks for the answer. Waiting for more 🙂
looking good 🙂
Thanks Mario! Hopefully, I’ll manage to take photos of finished figure this week.
hi! unfortunately this theme have problems on large screens ( https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14386480/2013-11-04%2013_04_01-Greenshot.png )
Probably because neither me nor WP designers considered people are using such high resolutions 🙂 Not sure, if I’ll be able to do anything about that, but I’ll ask my BF who’s better than me at html and stuff. Thank you for pointing that!
Nice work. That’s a Mosin Nagant M1891/30 sniper rifle. I have two similar rifles at home!
You have something in common with my dad. Too bad he doesn’t know English, so he can’t talk with you :<
My knowledge about guns isn't that good, so I'm mostly skipping anything about them, being afraid I'll say something wrong.
Thanks a lot!
zajrzyj na DA, wysłałam ci notkę jakiś czas temu z wieloma pytaniami 🙂
O rany, przepraszam! Jutro się tym zajmę. Ostatnio słabo ogarniam co się wokół mnie dzieje :<
Boże drogi, tą dioramę sama rzeźbiłaś? O_O i te dorobione włosy… dla mnie czarna magia i misterna robota.
Cóż, jakby nie patrzeć – mój wychowawca w liceum uczył rzeźby 😉
Wbrew pozorom, to wcale nie jest takie trudne. Szykujesz sobie szkielet (do tego użyłam przykrywek od dezodorantów), oblepiłam go modeliną, a potem tylko klepanie przy użyciu narzędzi dentystycznych (żeby uzyskać fakturę drzewa).
Pytałam się swojej dentystki, czy nie ma zużytych narzędzi, chętnie je oddała. Tylko przed użyciem je zdezynfekowałam.
Reszta to już malowanie i posypki modelarskie.
A włosy: mam taki cienki miedziany drucik. Ręczną wiertarką wywierciłam niewielkie otwory, w nie wkleiłam druty, a dookoła zakleiłam masą modelarską (potem oszlifowałam).
Robi wrażenie 🙂
Jeszcze raz dziękuje 🙂 Powdziwiam za te liście, naprawdę.
where did you buyed the Pirotess resin kit? I wsearch for her since a while. pls tell me 🙂
I got mine here: http://www.e2046.com/product/9478 .
This kit has “pre-order” status here, meaning they’re gathering orders before sending them to workshop.
That’s a cool figure, cant wait to see it finished
Aw, Thanks 😀 I’d love to see it finished as well. Along with other kits 😛 But this one doesn’t look so complicated, as well it’s going to be easy to paint.
