Rogue - can't go wrong there!

rexticon - thanks rex!

Bamf67 - Thank you sir. You keep me motivated also with your support and words of encouragement

Jan14 - thanks Jan

Skiman - Your skills are just fine! Sometimes I wish I could do what others do, but then I think about it and that just wouldn't be me and I have to be thankful I can do what I can. I wish I had started earlier in life though like in my late teens or early 20's.

Cosmic Fantasy Customs - Thank you for the kind and encouraging words

3bcustoms - I appreciate that. I really like your work also!

terryzom - Well, it happens sometimes. I miss a bunch myself with this new system. I'm still used to the old ways...lol!

"Holey rusted metal," Freddie! How'd I miss this one?!?! ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

WOW!! That is an AWESOME Sentinel!! He looks like he's been through some stuff! Once again you paint skills are in a league of their own! Are these figures very posable? I've been thinking about picking one up but wasn't sure. Great Job as always!!
fastfreddie - Thursday, April 19, 2012
yes, they are pretty good at posing and take paint good with minimum prep work involved and no paint rub issues. thanks man!
fastfreddie - Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Stevid - yeah he did a time or two

megatrooper - thanks megatrooper

fitzjedi - thank you fitz

Bushinryus40th - thank you for noticing! The silver chrome doesn't show up as good in the camera(looks white sometimes). My photo taking abilities aren't too good either

Manwolf - Yep, it was an original Shogun Warrior from the late 70's

ole jade jaw - I just use one,but most times I paint in one layer at time, that way I don't waste too much. Primer first, then I put down a basecoat of the main color, then the other paints on top of that whether it be drybrushing and hand detailing to airbrushing. Then seal it. If you are good with photoshop(which I'm not) just think of it as working in layers as they do with the photoshop and other programs like that

Customfig - I appreciate the advice, but it's like this... I just try to shade and paint the way I like to do it. Some people may think it's over the top, others may think it's not enough. If I wanted to go one shade darker orange on the Leader's muscles to define them then I'm sure that would've looked great(sometimes I do that) but for the most part I like bolder, dirtier type paint tones(most times) and if everyone of us painted the same then it wouldn't be much of a custom figure. If you think this Sentinel is too much, then that's your opinion and I do value it. But, there's an untold million ways to paint these things and this was just one of my ideas on it. My next one may or may not have the battle scars and rust areas painted on it, I usually don't know until I just start painting and let it take me to wherever it ends up. That's how I paint...I just go with the flow

NeCrollector - thank you for sharing your work also!

jonatanmk - thank you jonatamk

RedRebelCustoms - Thanks Double R!

massprime - I'm trying for sure!

Redmist - haha! yes it can, brother RED! We could walk on water if we had enough faith!

dbocustoms - I'm amazed at yours too, brother!

CAb00se - Honestly, I didn't really like them either until I held one in my hands and compared it to the baf one. It's really not bad at all. I have one more Sentinel and I have some bigger plans for it

kngfu - that's what I say! Mazinga would stomp that Sentinel!

a9j8tgh6yhnf456m - I can't pronounce your name yet, but your comments humble me! I may not believe it but thanks~!

G_Rantula - thank you sir! I tried. I have another one planned soon

lanshark1 - Well, I humbly thank you for saying that but there are plenty better than me. I just try to have my own style of painting but I find I continually try to improve it and try new things and ideas. It's because of comments like yours that keep me encouraged not to give up

JmTrtt - it's something to strive for. I thank you for thinking so regardless
emmbro30 - thank you for the encouragement! it's been tough, but the blessings keep coming. Even if it doesn't always go the way I want it

pulpyfiction - Well, this one is still quite shiny. This is one of those figures that really has to be seen in person to get the full magnitude of the shades and the shine. It's hard to photograph these things that have a a lot of gloss on it without it getting lost in the wash
AREZ - appreciate that, Arez!

lokoboy - Hey, I need to pray more myself. And even for the ones who don't pray to God, gods, the lords of Kobol or whomever...it's all about positive thinking!
Stevid - Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Looks like Cyclops blasted more than a few times, awesome!
megatrooper - Wednesday, April 18, 2012
great!
fitzjedi - Wednesday, April 18, 2012
SWEET SENTINEL!!
Bushinryus40th - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
You really brought this bad boy to life with those paint apps! It has that look as if he were standing out in the sun with the light glaring on the silver parts. Nice work my dude!
Manwolf - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Very nice, took me a while to realize that Mazinga is an original Shogun Warrior.
ole jade jaw - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
FREDTABULOUS!! Do you have, like an armada of paint cups for that thing or are you constantly changing and washing a few? You have so many colors going, it really comes to life and pops. Stellar stuff buddy.
customfig - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
man I really like your airbrush skill, but you put a little to much shading, like for example: your custom Leader, the muscle is orange and you shade it almost red. Which should be just little bit darker orange.
NeCrollector - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
W W!
Masterful paint job, FF!
Thanks for sharing.
jonatanmk - Tuesday, April 17, 2012

massprime - Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Redmist - Tuesday, April 17, 2012

dbocustoms - Tuesday, April 17, 2012

CAb00se - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
I like it...I never bought one cause I thought it looked too cartoony, your paint job makes it look more like a sentinel should. great work man!
kngfu - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Get em,Mazinga!
a9j8tgh6yhnf456m - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
unbeleivable I still think you're the realm best painter, and this piece proves it
G_Rantula - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
WAY TO ADD SOME LIFE TO THAT THING... AWESOME!!!
lanshark1 - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
I find Prayer always helps. And in your case it's very true!
Amazing work my friend! You are the best painter on here as far as I can tell!
JmTrtt - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Perfection achieved...

Emmett - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Agreed he looks much better! I also like that your prep method is similar to my own! You have been blessed with great talent! I hope that you make use of this gift in ways that will benefit both you and your family!
pulpyfiction - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Nice! Your paints take the shiny factory paint job, and drops it on it's head! This is an amazing upgrade! Now how is any one going to be able to look at the original figure without wanting to have these paints over top of it!
AREZ - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Awesome paint job Bro and now he looks much better!!!
Lokoboy - Tuesday, April 17, 2012
I may start praying more if it will help me become as good as you lol.. Amazing attention to detail as always my friend!
