Zombie Wedding Cake Topper

It's been forever since I've posted. I've had horrible artist's block and lots of stress from work.
But I did get a request from a long time friend to paint his wedding cake topper.   This seemed like the perfect task to get me back on track and fun to boot!

My boyfriend Jason was kind enough to sculpt a new head for the cake topper to give it a real zombie feel, and made the glasses for the bride. 

Here is a picture of the topper on the wedding cake in front of a painting?/photo? of a mac & cheese casserole? or a bucket of popcorn? chicken nuggets? I'm not sure really, but anyways I stole the cake photo from Darren I hope he doesn't mind.

Archangel Stallone (Kingdom Death Chosen)

Here is my newest! I bought him originally because I thought he looked like Stallone which he doesn't really but I'll keep pretending.
I tried something new on this guy for his wings I actually used gold leaf instead of paint.  Now I can't say that it was worth it but it was a fun experiment. I still had to paint it because it was so flat and bright compared to the rest of the miniature. I will say that gold leaf is a pain in the butt because no matter how well you think you put the glue down for it , it will do what ever the hell it wants. I ended up with a couple of oooops moments but just rolled with them in the end.  Anyways I hope you enjoy him!

Sulpher 32mm Tabletop Combat Game Kickstarter

Remember that awesome Vasquez miniature I posted just a little while back.. Well I happened to receive the miniature from the artist WAY before the release date.  Now it looks like the game is finally happening and it will be 32mm instead of the 54mm which I painted up.
Please take a few moments to check them out, as the miniatures look amazing and super fun.

WHOOOPS! CMON Annual 2012

WHOOOPS! I could have been in the CMON Annual 2012 But I missed a private message back in June asking for high res pics of my images.   I just found it today only because I got a comment on one of my other entries and I figured I would log in to see what I missed.  Looks like quite a bit.

I wish they would have sent me an email instead of a message through their system. I wonder how many other people missed out.

So here are the miniatures they wanted to feature. While you are looking through your copy you can pretend these are in there.

So I haven't updated in a while but I assure you that I am working on painting just not as often as I would like.  I have an amazing piece on my work bench and I've been so busy I haven't had time to get to him.  I will update soon, I promise.

Steampunk Princess

My newest is finally finished : Steampunk Princess by La Fabrica Roja, (you can easily find them on facebook)  and you can get one of these miniatures from CMON.

I did use the air brush on her for the flats of her skin and shirt since the areas were so large I didn't want the paint to build up and have her look lumpy.  Other than the flat color everything is painted with a brush.
I plan on trying out the air brush more for painting since I've seen a few videos and tutorials on it and they make it look simple (*snort*).   I have a ton of miniatures to practice on so we shall see how that goes.
I hope you enjoy my version of the Steampunk Princess as I really enjoyed painting her and can't wait to put her in my display cabinet.
