  1. Buckbeak bows





    one of several 'live' animatronic features at the Warner Brothers Harry Potter studio tour, the griffon/gryphon from...well, whichever one it was in. Went for a visit there a few days ago with a couple of friends, for one of their birthdays.

    Whatever you think of the whole Potter phenomenon, the tour thing is really quite an experience - granted I'm pretty biased by way of being a sculptor/modelmaker, but ...
  2. Welcome to Tabletopzone.de - Willkommen auf Tabletopzone.de

    Hi there, first I`ll try to give a short overview in english, and after that you will see a german discription of this Blog Entry.

    After some Time, i got it.

    Tabletopzone.de
    I thought about a online informative german Tabletopsite of different Tabletops, to explain them, show Tutorials and Matches.
    Now the start is good.
    Actually I`m filling the Website with content day after day.

    It will have ...
  3. Unsolicited Review: Pop Sculpture

    Hello all! I just got this book Pop Sculpture; how to create action figures and collectible statues the other day and thought I'd share it with you and my thoughts on it. I had read about in in Amazing Figure Modeller and when I had to go on Amazon to get some of my textbooks, I thought it was a good excuse to throw this in there too.
    First off, when I looked on the cover's spine I was a bit hesitant- Watson-Guptill books that I've bought in the past have been hit or miss, with emphasis ...
  4. Getting the Shakes

    Right, well I've been away from the paints for over a week now and the withdrawal has been dreadful.

    I've been in holiday, that thing where you go away and have to have a good time. LIke it or not. I couldn't take my mini's and gear with me so I've just had to withdraw. I took a sci-fi book with me from the Heresey series and as I'm painting Dark Angels it had to be "Descent of Angels". This has duely inspired me, but my anxiety has got so bad recently my shakes are almost uncontrollable. ...
  5. Information Overload...

    Okay, so I'm pushing on trying to improve.

    I'm pretty sure that my most recent mini I've posted is my best yet, but I just can't get my cameraphone to translate the way the eye does.

    I did what I reckon most of us do, and started research. Now the problem I've got is I probably know too much! At least enough to know I haven't got a clue.

    This took me back to a conversation I had with my step dad. It was about developing in art, how the only way, in his opinion, ...
  6. Nostalgia...it's not like it used to be!

    I've been posting some updated mini's, I find it helpful to respond to the score I'm getting as a way of improving the minatures. IT tells me if I'm going forward in the right direction.

    But if there's one thing I know you can't move forward with out checking your mirrors...right? (okay okay cheesey I know).

    So I've indulged myself in some Nostalgia. I have an album on my computer of models and minatures from the past few years as I have gradually been able to commit more ...
  7. Starting Again

    There's somthing strangely therapeutic about starting again.

    When your brush chucks a hair out of place and smears paint across the edge you were highlighting.

    Well....

    You just have to start again!

    I've just started again, like this blog from that ancient awkward entry back in May 2012 and in my dedication to painting minatures. I don't know if I'll ever be as good as I'd aspire to be, but that's part of the fun of it.

    My friend ...
  8. Ressurecting my painting..

    Okay, so after that evil 5 year hiatus and now that I have some time off of school I'm finally trying to get things back together so I can paint. But- here's the problem: my parents decided to renovate while I was gone.. and quickly too. And so it became "shove everything into a box and let it rot in the shed, exposed to the elements". Every time I find something, it's pretty much destroyed. I had a VERY nice owl feather I had gotten years ago and now it's trash- it was bent and riddled with dry ...

  9. Mouslings 2 Bards and Halloween couple - 2 Βάρδοι ποντικάκια και 2 ντυμένα χέλογουιν


    Good evening to all. Today I have something special. Mouslings!!! Yeah right .... I didn't knew either but I learned them.
    Some time ago I decided to make something for my little baptistery but I did not know what. Whatever I found was either too dumb like something toxic mushrooms or was too slutty with tits out etc.
    So after much internet search I ended up at these cute mouslings.

  10. Painting Tutorials.......

    Hi all

    Well.....I have spent hours and hours trawling through the vastness of the web and as we all know there are many many, many......did I say many? Many blogs, vids etc on how to paint....

    Some are useful, so not so much!....

    I am curious though....which do you think is the best tutorial and why? Is there a tutorial that you would like to see?....I don't have any myself, but in time I am sure to follow.

    For me so far, the best has been by ...
