Guarding the Space Pirate Gold by JohnsonArms Guarding the Space Pirate Gold by JohnsonArms
Space Pirates have some weird currency, but it is pure gold so what the hell do I care? Not that I got this stuff illegally, but I do carry my favorite blaster to keep my share..mine. :)

I hope you like the look of the nerf Element, it was painted to match a Longshot I'm working on for the same client. It has a definite space marine style to it, but would work well for a lot of different themes like HALO, etc..


Thanks for checking it out!

Did someone ever teach you how to paint like this or did you learn it yourself?

How do you distress the outer paint layer so realistically? Do you do an undercoat of metallic aluminum/steel and then a top coat of the green, then very carefully distress the green? It's AMAZING the attention to detail, I'm just curious how you accomplish it so realistically.

The color scheme and mix of curves and angles definitely reminds me of some of the weapons used by the marines in Quake 4. Great work!

This is true! They definitely have the look of a lot of games and such. No worries on the double post, hehe.

If you don't mind me asking, what do you use to apply the metallic paint for the wear effect along the edges?

Just a brush, honestly. I just attack it is all :)

Huh. Just good old-fashioned drybrushing? I'm impressed.

thanks for that. I'm practicing with my new airbrush though, so hopefully I can see the potential in using that more :)
