It's been a crap couple of months in terms of finding time for Gunpla! I seriously don't think I'm going to get this build done in time for the deadline, bit I'm going to give it my best shot...
I've not been able to do much recently, with moving house and all - just getting back into the swing of things! Here's a quick painting I've been doing of an old sketch I did a while back (the old sketch is in the bottom right of the picture).
I'm pretty pleased with this, because although it's quite loose and sketchy I painted it straight in colour, which I actually prefer to starting out in grey scale I think. My other colour images I've been painting in greys and overlaying a colour gradient - I think painting straight in colour is a lot more satisfying. It took a lot less time than the other paintings I've done, too.
I've not progressed past characters on grey backgrounds yet, but I'll get there. There's a few more of these to come - he's part of a group of units: Heavy type, standard type, flying type etc. Sazbi update coming this weekend too!
