So I recently finally got the seemingly elusive "DBM Skullbrain", and its a sortof a tribute to 'King Walder', a villain from the old Takara toy line Henshin Cyborg. I thought, who could he fight? How about an homage of my own? Not of Henshin Cyborg, but of its direct decendants Microman. Enter, the Microbrain.

Custom Updates!

I've updated two of the Customs I've recently been working on-

I added some gold to the Skullmerry:



And a big update to the Visitor, I totally changed his body and arms.

Daily Custom Day #5 - The Enigma!

Who is the Enigma? What is his purpose on this Earth? Is he a mystical being, or crazed pyscho? And what could be under the Mask?

DAily Custom #4 - 2 For Tuesday

Its double-shot Tuesday, and I have to run to work:

My favorite vinyl figure has to be the Skullwing, and I love painting them. This was a experiment in splatter technique as well as a but of an homage to a LASH custom I saw once.

The second custom of the day is the only non-Secretbase figure in this set of daily customs. I wanted to go with a Pacific Giant Octopus color scheme. Its simple, but I likes it.

Merry Monday

So yeah, thing one was fun to do, and expensive. I saw one of those larger SKullmerry's and realized "Hey I like that Skull Head better then the small skullmerry head." So I bought a big skullmerry (a pink one) and then while I was waiting for it, asked the important question, whether or not it would fit... Turns out after a little cutting it fits fine, and looks not too bad, right? I had fun painting this one; the body is translucent which you can't really see in these pictures, but then held up to the light the color is a bit like dry blood.

I'd like to paint another one of these, but I doubt it'll happen unless SB releases a cheaper large Skullmerry, but if not, its still neat.

Daily Custom #2 - A Visitor from Space

Here is Sunday's monster: The Visitor. First time painting a Space Barbarian, or whatever they're called. I really didn't know how this was going to come out. I decided to try for a bit of a 1950's "Teenagers From Outer Space" look to the body.
I think the simple look to it is a good contrast to the head under the helmet, which I wanted to look very colorful and vibrant. It's a shame that the Barbarian head is usually hidden, because its really an awesome sculpt.

I've got another figure lined up for tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled:
