Alien Bust

I had the good fortune to be able to take a creature painting class with Casey Love (MIB 3, The Thing, Blood, Predator, Race to Witch Mountain, AvP, Resident Evil: Requiem), during which I got to paint one of his original sculpts.

Casey is an excellent teacher, and I really enjoyed the class -- although we spent a lot of time covering airbrush basics, not as part of the curriculum but because so many folks had done little or no airbrushing prior to this. This is not a complaint on my part though, because it's always good to get a take on the basics from an expert -- and Casey certainly qualifies!

Wittmann's RC 007

I stopped doing commission work a long time ago, but sometimes you just can't say no. In this case I'm turning this 1/16 scale RC tank into Wittmann's 007. This thing has individually linked metal tracks, emits smoke from the exhaust, has a working suspension, and shoots airsoft pellets. Even the tow and stowage rings are workable. It's an incredible piece... and I'm only a little afraid of ruining it....
