I'm thinking about setting up a commissions webpage. Painting will be a thing, but more importantly is the kitbashing. You can ask me for anything-- daemons, flyers, Primarchs, anything!-- and I will create all you desire, for a price.
It's not going to be much, just a page or two with some drop-downs and a bunch of photos, nothing too presumptuous, I hope. I know there's a lot of painting services out there, but I'd like to be different, in that my byword is GRIMDARK. You won't find me airbruhsing pink & yellow Fire Warriors and I make no shame of my atrocious blending. I'm not really a wargamer, I'm an ARTIST, and this is my style, dark as it is.
So, what have I been doing all this time, by Throne? Making content, I think that's all really. I can't really be exclusively showing my Sagodjur Fjorlag as examples, can I?
Painting has begun on two major pieces; a Grey Knight Captain and a true-scale child of the 1st legion. I'll be using these two as examples of finished work, what I'm capable of.
I must say, I'm pretty pleased with the GK!
Also work has begun on the four painting styles I'll be advertising. I decided on Dark Angels successors for examples as 1: I had some spare push-fit ones from the DV box and 2: they have a nice contrast of dark and light colour on the one model.
But now that I think of it, those push-fit marines have some awful poses...
And also some more custom builds as well as also; the seraphim I've shown here before and a TS Blood Angel, with a heavy flamer just for giggles. I'll have images of both unpainted and finished to hopefully give people an idea of the work that goes into each figure.
I know of a failsafe method of making true-scale Astartes fairly quickly-- if not cheaply-- so I'll make sure I advertise that too. Whole squads are possible, you'll need only ask!
I'm tossing a few ideas about concerning a banner and title... This little faerie is becoming a sort of a mascot now. Isn't it cute? X3
I haven't really decided on a domain name yet-- or a name, but I know what I'd like; something to do with darkness, scalpels, alters and faerie creatures, perhaps?
So that's that, for now. A website, how exciting! I'd like to hear your thoughts on this too, please. Don't forget to be happy, don't get clinical depression, and remember-- when you cut off the back vents of a GK body, try not to use your thumb as a cushion.
Bye bye for now.
