This is the twin of the first one, and of course, she fits perfectly with her sister and her friend.  Together, they are a perfect speed group.

Hope you like them. Wich one do you prefer?

Infinity Haqqislam Bike #2

This was the second Infinity's Haqqislam bike I painted in a batch with Hydra Studio;

As in the previous one, the colour scheme is the same, also, this one is a bit different as she is from another faction, but painted to fit in this one.

Hope you like it!

Infinity Haqqislam Bike #1

During those 3 months with Hydra Studio, We painted so many miniatures at request. Some of them are based on previous works done by me at Arsies Studio.

This one is from a batch of 3 bikes I painted from Infinity for a private collector. This is the first one as is basically the same as another one I painted some time ago.

Also, this one is the reference to use as a painting scheme in the other 2. Hope you like it!

Mortarion Step by Step; Week 4

Hi all.

This was an exciting but very hard week. I managed to finish several important parts so I could start the Assembling of this guy!! In fact, it's not more work than other weeks, but it's a moral improvement as I can start to see light after all!

Let's see what we did!

Mortarion Step by Step; Week 3

Hello again.

This week's work is a bit repeating the previous steps we did during weeks 1&2; It's an exciting week as we could finish a couple of pieces completely so the moment to start assembling them is closer (but probably not yet next week).

Let's see what we did!

Mortarion step by step; Week 1

This week at Hydra Studio we started to paint Mortarion (well, when I say "we" I mean "me"; I paint personally all High-Quality works).

We decided to take some fast step by step pictures to post it at our facebook. Also, I'll share them with you on my blog too!

This week we had not so much time to work on it. Assembling and primming so big piece kept us busy a couple of days, but anyway we could do some interesting things.

Fran G. Project: "On the Bridge"

A long time ago, one of my best friends, Fran Gil, who is a master modeller for me and a great inspiration, even if he avoids totally the network, proposed me to cooperate in a couple of small scenes.

I of course accepted, but circumstances forced me to paint only in my free time, and that's not so much at all! Because of that, this second scene took me to complete it for almost 2 years. It's an insane amount of time.

This scene shows a couple of warriors on a robe bridge broken. We'll let at your imagination if Minotaur is saving or killing the other guy ;-). It was completely conversed by Fran and painted by me.

I know it does not reach my usual painting standards, but Fran is very happy with it in his showcase anyway, and also, I had some fun painting it.

Hope you like it too!

Kingdom Death #4

The last one of the batch of 4 miniatures I painted of Kingdom Death at Hydra Studio.

This time I tried to paint it as a summoner or something like that. With this mini, we finished the commission for this private customer, but we are going still to be painting Kingdom Death miniatures for other Customers that requested us to do something else for them.

Hope you like it!

Hispania Wargames, Grisalla (Grisaille) MasterClass

During the past weekend, Hydra Studio, where I'm currently Painting Head, did a painting MasterClass at Hispania Wargames where I expend a couple of hours painting 2 miniatures using Grisaille + Filters techniques with Airbrush (even if those techniques can be done with a brush).

The objective was to show people how they can improve their painting speed with armies that use the same colour schemes and at the same time, improve the quality of the painting work. In that way, I painted 2 minis at the same time with different qualities to show them that you don't need to be very skilful using an airbrush to paint in this way.

The Masterclass went great and so many people attended the 2 hours, with moments where we had more than 40 persons attending at the same time, something not very usual in this kind of events focused on tabletop wargaming.

We used 2 cameras to record the masterclass, but unfortunately, one of them didn't record anything and the other one was the assistant one, that was not in the best angle. Anyway, We'll try to recover everything useful and mount it in the following weeks.

Did you were there? tell us if you liked it :-)

Hispania Wargames: Masterclass

Hi guys. This post is related to a Spanish event where, mostly, people will be Spanish, so please, allow me this time to write in my own language.

Este fín de semana se celebran en Málaga (Alhaurin de la Torre) las HISPANIA WARGAMES; Hydra Studio estaremos allí, y entre las actividades que vamos a realizar, se encuentra una masterclass de pintura el sábado de 10 a 12 de la mañana impartida por mí.

En ella abordaremos las ventajas del abocetado con grisalla a la hora de imprimar para trabajar rápidamente sobre miniaturas acorazadas tipo servoarmadura o armadura de combate. Está técnica es rápida, bonita y sencilla, si bien, necesitas un aerógrafo para realizarla en su máximo esplendor, y permite pintar rápidamente ejercitos en serie con un acabado espectacular.

Además seremos los primeros en abrir las masterclass del evento, que serán muchas y variadas. ¡Es un honor!

También será una oportunidad para que aquellos que aún no tienen mi libro se hagan con un ejemplar, es un AAA en cuanto a manuales de pintura de miniaturas (ya sé que está feo que lo diga yo, pero siempre podéis ojearlo y decidir por vosotros mismos).

¡¡Nos vemos allí!!

New Year, New Life

Arsies Studio was on holidays since December, A lot of things were happening...

I have a BIG announcement: ARSIES STUDIO CLOSES

I've been working as a freelance for the last 10 years. I had so many ups and downs. Working as a freelance is hard, you are always a one-man army that had to do so many works in very different areas. Anyone that works in this way can tell you.

So It's time to change. Arsies Studio Closes to being integrated into Hydra Studio, Where I'm going to work as head of the painting Department (or "painting Head" as they like to call it).

Working with a Team means I can focus on my painting work to release more and better miniatures, tutorials, and multimedia resources. It will take some time to complete integration with my new teammates, but I'm sure in a couple of months we'll be working as one unit and producing exciting things.

For those who don't know them, Hydra Studio is a very young enterprise that is entering strongly into the modelling market, focused until now in development 3D sculpture (also for the miniature world as animation or video games) and 3D Printing, we are slowly creating new departments with the integration of Arsies Studio as the Painting Department and creating new ones that will be working soon as the Casting Department.

We're also finishing the accommodation of our new HeadQuarters in a big Industrial ship in La Línea de la Concepción (Spain), and we'll be able soon to show and offer new experiences from there.
