I paint resin Model kits for companies and private collectors. The kits come in many bare resin pieces. I then clean up and assemble them.
After the assembled kit is sprayed with a coat of primer, I paint all the colors onto the figure. Most of these are my own color designs. Unless its a movie character, then I use photo reference pictures. I have also sculpted a few kits, such as the Host creature and the little Audrey plant.
Thanks for stopping by!

Do you do custom resin model commissions?

Or do you just paint them?

I really love your work, I am just blown away by your art, creations, ideas, talents. I actually did a piece of drawing inspired by one of your work, and I really love the way the lines and curves you used to make each one of your creations look so realistic. I just want to tell you that i really love your work!

I've been watching you for quite a while now and dude, even though I already said this to you before, I just gotta say it again: Your Predator paints are absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could afford to buy one of yours, because they truly are part of the best I've seen so far. :D
Do you have any plans for repainting some of the female Pred kits out there? There's one that I absolutely love, in both its variations. (Could you possibly tell me how much what would cost? I've been wanting to save some money to someday be able to buy it. But I really have no idea how much that would cost me...)
