    Muntoe1 år siden#57671648Haha thanks Maakie :) I don't really read blogs at all anymore but glad you took the time to find and look at this one. Good luck with those kits!

    Thanks! :D I'll try to think of it to remind you when my blogs for my new kits are up. Doing quite some experimenting lately. Summarized:

    ITEM #119873 = My last 'amateurish' one, fully handpainted. 95% finished and slowly working on the blog about it.

    ITEM #12293 = My first mainly airbrushed one, 25% finished.

    ITEM #92386 = My first fully handpainted one now that I got some better equipment and paints (and things are going a lot better), 10% finished.

    And also soon a friend is going to send me a kit he would like me to paint. I don't feel good enough for comissions, so just material costs covered and a lot of fun involved. :) I'm hoping/expecting my experimenting with above 3 will make me able to do a good job with how his kit is going to be. I really think I stepped up in quality, but I'll first have to finish my kit and blog about my last 'amateurish' one, haha!

    Lobelias1 år siden#50407824Wooow. that sounds like a great technique for getting your eyes just right. and quite shiny! since my parents gave me a space for crafting, (i have no room myself,) i'll just have to go with acrylics in an airbrush and handbrush. can't make my parents coughYou can still do some really great things with hand-brushing! I painted all of my kits that way with craft acrylics until about a year ago. Super fine brushes, ink pens and toothpicks are your friends lol. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

    Muntoe1 år siden#50401577She does have that early Disgaea look! Once you get the hang of it painting with enamel is very easy. The key to hand-painting with enamel is to thin appropriately and paint on top of a sealed, lacquer gloss coat. Enamel paint and thinner will not react with the lacquer topcoat so when you paint on top of gloss you can wipe away any mistakes with enamel thinner. This method is used quite widely among Japanese painters which is how they get those sharp eye lines and details.

    Lobelias1 år siden#50305243You know, I wouldve thought her as a disgaea character ^^
    How is it to hand-paint with enamel? Mostly I know it as going in airbrushes

    Rajke1 år siden#50306235Nice job. Everything is painted so nicely. I like the way how you covered the seamlines. :DThank you for your kind comment ^^

    birdboy1 år siden#50308153so cute!!! you did such a great job painting them both ^_^ may i ask where you got the kit (or any gk for that matter)?Thank you! I purchased this kit off of Mandarake a few years ago. Garage kits are limited in production so most of the time you need to find and purchase them through second-hand through websites. Yahoo!Japan auctions has the widest selection but it also requires the use of a proxy. There are also other websites like Mandarake, Suruga-ya, and Jungle (some of these have international shops). More recently Japanese sculptors have begun selling some of their works through mail-order on Pixiv BOOTH or their own websites. If you are interested in purchasing directly through the sculptor I created a list available here. There are also websites that sell recasts (copies of original garage kits) but I choose not to actively advocate for them anymore. Google "garage kit anime" or similar terms and you will find links to them directly or through Reddit.

    Shaolan-kun1 år siden#50383254It's been so long since I tasted it, but I remember a subtle flavor of real habanero peppers, which I know quite well. If you like spicy flavors then you definitely need to give it a try, so you can also have the chance of taking photos of the real snack together with your gorgeous kit.Thanks for the heads up! I'm OK with most spice so it sounds like I need to give these a try :p

    Muntoe1 år siden#50304023Does the snack actually taste like peppers or is it more of a generic spicy? After all of this I'm tempted to try them.

    Muntoe1 år siden#50304023I'm also amused that the bag looks so scary yet Habanero-tan is the complete opposite lol.
    That's the appeal :-D I always loved this panel danbooru.donmai...
