Crimson Argus

Here is the full reveal of my custom Alien Argus for Max Nagata's group show at Toy Art Gallery, which opens tomorrow, Feb 26th and runs thru Mar 26th.

**UPDATE** Artwork is now available online - here's a direct link to my very affordable piece.

I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, as I've been experimenting more with washes, dry-brushing and all around weathering on recent customs.

Here's a great tip for getting amazing captures of your work - try to take advantage of the natural outdoor light, especially during "Golden Hour" when taking photos.  I like to throw the background out of focus and position the piece to get an edge/rim light along the silhouette of the character where possible.

If you're in LA, be sure to stop by the gallery to check out what is turning out to be a huge custom show for Mark's awesome Kaiju-inspired creature!
