I like to think that I have a great taste in favourites. Anyway, it would be great if you could check them out, there are some truly amazing pieces of work done by outstanding deviants.
|So not too long ago I uploaded some photos of my Brass Scorpion to get some feedback...|

Brass Scorpion #1 by MetalOxide-Creations
Somebody had said that it was a bit too 'clean' and could do with some more Nurgling-up and I agreed. This gave me the excuse to go to my local gee-dub (GW/Games-Workshop) and picked up some of the shiny looking technical paints and some washes. Then I went to town on the Brass Scorpion, sculpting on more disease and decay and then using the technical paints to make it look super gross. I still have a bit more work to do on it but I wanted to show you my progress so far.
|So here is the Games Workshop OOP metal hydra painted up to a table top quality. It took me several hours to do, and I'm pleased with how it has turned out. I only managed to get a few photos of it from one angle as it was getting dark and the lighting was getting poor, I'll take some more photos from different angles soon.|
|"The Druze are a people originating from Lebanon and the South of Syria. They have their own religion, a mixture of Islam, Gnosticism, and other philosophies. Hermetic, unknown, indomitable by nature and traditionally dedicated to pillage and plunder, they now control the transport routes and commercial traffic that binds Minor Asia with the Orbital Elevator of East Africa. They also posses their own caravansary, in the construction area near the stabilizer for Bourak’s second worm hole, that will bring in great profit when the Jump Gate is finished. Druze Society is rich, and possesses some influence and political power in PanOceania and Haqqislam. However, they’re still an enigma, because their religion and organization is full of secret rituals. For a long time, there were only incomplete and partial reports about their Society, however there were been no doubts about its effects throughout the Human Sphere, and its roots in the global economy. The proof is abundant, yet their motives are still unknown. Just the way the Druze prefer it."- Infinity: the Game website|
Love reading, drawing comic books, UFO's and extraterrestrial life, collecting trading cards, listening to rock music, listening to metal music, listening to the blues, listening to classical music, philosophical thinking whilst out and about, sci-fi themes, maths problems, chemistry, biology, documentaries.
I predominately build/convert/paint miniatures as I am an avid miniature wargamer, Warhammer 40k being my favourite table-top game. I also love to do life drawing; the human body fascinates me and also, photography as I am building up an image bank so I'll always have a source of my own visual information for when I need it and won't have to rely on other people's resources.
Check out MetalOxide-Plus my dA page for uploading miscellaneous and experimental material. Also I'll be uploading some stuff on my political views which can obviously be quite controversial, so I want to keep it off my main account.
