Headbanger face rip!

Ok so this isn't last week like I said, but I got caught up in a big project. I got to thinking "what are my customs lacking?". The answer, metal. My geekdom basically revolves around toys, heavy metal, and horror movies. I decided I should try and blend the three and this is what I came up with.

It's the Mech-cannibal and the wolves of Chernobyl. They're both based on songs off of the new Municipal Waste album, Massive Aggressive. If you haven't listened to them and you like good old fashioned thrash with a little hardcore thrown in you should check them out. Anyway, on to the customs.

The Mech-cannibal is part man part machine and hungry for human flesh. He savagely attacks his victims and devours their bodies. Whatever is left he throws into the vat of chemical waste strapped to his back to slowly digest them and fuel his murderous rampages.



I had a lot of fun working on this guy. I used a new painting technique called a wash. I've never been able to get it right in the past, but I really like how it creates a deeper shadow than just dry brushing. I gives him an almost moldy rotten feel.



The wolves of Chernobyl are beasts of the night created by radioactive waste from the Chernobyl disaster. They roam the country side looking for their next kill.


Well there you go, let me know what you think.

Metal up your ass.
