Highborn Dragons

Here are two dragons that I painted up for a High Elf force. I had previously painted up a dragon for this client, so I'd bet that he's been fielding all three as a Highborn Dragon Host.

 And here they are:

Harlequin Solitaire

Here's a solitaire that I got to paint up just a little while ago. He goes with one of a couple forces of Harlequins that I've painted up in small batches- starting from before they had a codex of their very own.

 Each of the other Harlequins in the troupe have strong black and white patterns with one bold color added. This Harlequin has each of the other colors incorporated into it (sort of a sign of his position).

Cake topper gonna take out some zombies

Most of the cake toppers I do are posed back to back. Some of the brides and grooms I work with like to have something a little more dynamic to their poses.

 Here's a topper I made recently of a couple that really wanted to look like they were in the thick of it. Something feels right about using blades meant for whacking foliage on the zombies (machetes and a scythe).

 I don't know why it is, but those weapons just seem so badass to me.

Super Cake Topper

The wedding cake toppers that I make are all made to order. While a lot of my clients take the images from our galleries as a starting point, some of them really go out on a limb and have me make completely different toppers.

 Here's a topper I made for a couple that asked for something completely different. They wanted a pair of costumed heroes on their wedding cake, and I was more than happy to create it for them.

Arena Rex Medusa

I feel like there have been many renditions of Medusa in miniatures. She's even become a species according to some of the older Dungeons and Dragons stuff I have around here. They even had pictures of child medusas (and it isn't like I wouldn't paint a cute little Medusa, you know?)

 Well, Arena Rex has some brilliant artwork and sculpting behind their line, so I was very happy to get to paint up their wonderful Medusa. The client really let me make the decisions on this one, so I got to create the pallet as I see her.

Wedding Cake Toppers for Actual Ninjas

Here are a few cake toppers for brides who truly love their ninja.

 I'm a little surprised that no one has had me make the bride into the ninja yet- but I suppose it is hard to resist the lure of having me match the beautiful wedding dress.


 And here's a different sort of topper. While most of the toppers I've made have been for weddings, some have been for anniversaries or other occasions. Here is a topper I made for an actual ninja master's birthday. He teaches the arts of Bujinkan Ninjutsu at his dojo, and decided to have this topper made for his birthday cake:

Kasaro To- Super Dungeon Explore Oni

Way back when Relic Knights was being Kickstarted, Sodapop miniatures introduced crossover characters for their already successful Super Dungeon Explore.

I painted this guy up just a little while ago, but now, with the release of Ninja All Stars, I think he would fit nicely into a Ninja Themed Super Dungeon game.

I went with a very controlled color pallet- keep a strong sense of light and dark among the purple, with a strongly contrasting NMM gold.  I think the pallet worked well on him.

Romantic Zombie Wedding Cake Topper

Here's a cake topper I made for a couple that clearly believe strongly in "Forever and No Matter What." It is really great to have found someone who will always love you, no matter what side of the zombie apocalypse you both end up on.

 A little while ago, I made a similar topper to this one- but from the other side, the couple were still alive. I believe the cake they put them on was half white and half chocolate, and they thought it was a great idea to have the couple be zombies from one side but not the other.

 This couple went fully undead. I really liked matching the tattoos especially.
