This past few months have been incredibly busy around here. I promise you I haven’t stopped. I’ve just been spread pretty thin. However, I will show you things that have been keeping my attention. There’s going to be a lot of pictures and a lot of things I gloss over. You can keep more up to date by following Geek Out Studio’s Facebook page, Twitter feed @GeekOutStudio, or Instagram.
I’ve still been working on various miniatures; however, I haven’t taken any studio shots because the clients have all decided to do their own bases. I haven’t had a chance to meet up with them and take some studio shots of the fully completed miniatures, but I’ll go over some of the work-in-progress pictures.
After I finished the Heldrake, I got started on a couple of costume commissions that were sent in. Both were for Kill La Kill props. The first being Ryuko’s Scissor Blade.
I still work on Warhammer stuff (I promise); however, I have gotten to work on a Warhammer Fantasy piece.
The Wood Elves Orion. This was an interesting piece to work on manly due to the fact that the client wanted it mostly done in fall colors. It was another time-consuming piece because again, I had to hand paint most of it.
With the completion of these two, the client has decided to go ahead and get his whole army painted.
I did have a rather random but cute commission come in. One of my wife’s co-workers wanted me to re-paint a Skylander. Her son wanted a girl Skylander to give to his sister.
This was the starting model. The kid wanted typical “girl” colors: pink and purple. Since it was for a 6-year-old, I didn’t go to crazy with painting it; however, bot the mom and kids did end up absolutely loving it.
A nice metal undercoat that will help with weathering.
There have been two big events that have distracted me though over the last couple of months.
Last week I was busy working a haunted castle out in the middle of no where, so I guess that was fitting. I got to play a crazy and bloody doctor.
We did some major home renovations recently, and along with that was convert a spare room into a studio. I soon hope to have it completely done and running. I no longer will be cramped into a small alcove, but have a whole room.
Anyway, that’s about everything that’s been going on recently. I should get back to posting regularly, so make sure to check back. As always, share, follow, comment, and all those other wonderful internet stuff.
