I am in violation of the Cattleman's first rule of raising bulls. It says "Don't Raise Bulls."
I'm not an anti-social misanthrope. Far from it! I'm just physically isolated from other people I don't like on a daily basis and anti-social-media.
This status update isn't just for show...
 well okay maybe it is. So sue me, I've been busy taking care of my cows.
Painting Master Chief's Arsenal -Sprukits Level 3- by GeneralMechanics
Painting Master Chief's Arsenal -Sprukits Level 3-
This is the weapons for the Bandai Sprukits Level 3 model kit of the Master Chief from Halo.

I figured out what to do with the Level 2 model kit: as seen here Sprukits Master Chief Weapon Building by GeneralMechanics and applied it to the larger scale. 

All of my work is hand brushed.

1) After gluing the weapons together, I started with adding color to the main body of the weapons, painting them with my custom "Gun Metal" I used in the Level 2 kit.

2) I finished the BR85 Battle Rifle first because of its two color pallet, painting its gun barrel with a mix of some gunmetal and flat black paint that I added to my custom color.

I also used this color on the barrel for the Assault Rifle and the grips of the pistols.

3) Compared to my Level 2 model, I didn't go wild mixing a third metal color, and instead used my Gun Metal with some light gray and it worked out just fine.

4) I painted the stocks and grips of the pistols with a mix of Flat Black and Engine Gray paint.

5) The finishing touch was cleaning the edges and borders by panel lining the weapons with a gray Gundammarker (GM02) and rubbing the ink into the corners.
Greetings visitors and friends of my DeviantArt Domain!

I send this journal entry to say that while in my period of minimal activity on DA, I keep a more regularly updated photo-journal segment on my Google+ Page. I'm not retiring from DA, it's just easier with G+ since it is built into my cell phone and is more rapidly available to post material online.

...or I'm just that one guy who continues to refuse to getting a Facebook page. 

Don't judge me, it's not like I've got a Zune. 

The address link is

"Apparently I'm popular there because people like my pictures of Gundam Models, Baby Cows, and Broken Tractor Parts!"

There you will see some in progress work of mine that I will later mirror here and in future model reviews on CollectionDX!
