When I started this project over a year and a half ago, I was driven by a strong love for the 80s (This is David Sandbergs line but I can't say better).
I watched again all Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren movies; wrote my script, took $5000 of my own money and just started shooting whenever my friends and I had time!
We have now enough material to create a 45 minute long film!
Commando Ninja takes place in a variety of exotic locations:
1980s Los Angeles, Canada mountains, Vietnam War, Central-America, Post-Apocalypse...
John will live an adventure through many places ... and times Everything was shot on real sets, with practical VFX, as they did in the 80's! There is absolutely no way we shoot something on a green screen!
The soundtrack of the movie will feature famous Synthwave artists like Cobra Copter, Flash Arnold and OGRE.
The original soundtrack has been composed by a great music composer, Thomas Cappeau, and is by itself a love letter to the 80's action movie soundtracks :
Other famous artists from the 80's revival wave joined the project, among them :
- Blood+Chrome made the Commando Ninja animated logo

Had an extra one of these lying about, and decided to experiment with a limited palette. Here’s how she turned out:
Main colors used were MSP Woodland Brown, Brilliant Green, Scholar Flesh, and Yellowed Bone (and it’s triad).
Not completely happy with her skin tones, I tried everything up to Moth Green trying to get a light tone that still read as green. Wound up using one of the darkest greens I have, go figure. Shaded by gradually dropping the flesh tone until it was straight green, but it turned out to be a rather extreme color shift.
I like how the base and tree trunk came out, however. The ground shade was achieved by throwing some blues and yellows together until they stopped being bad and then painting some gray on the rocks.
All in all, I think it turned out all right for just messing around. Definitely something to practice in the future. Comments, critiques, and suggestions appreciated.
So back to reposting my minis after the account crash.
This is Freebooter winged Vampire Raven, sh swoops down from this ruin to attack Hasslefree's Gen.
I removed Gen's horns, I wanted her to look more human.
Gen's pics are linked cause, nude...mammal parts,
I like the wings, but overall I'm not so proud of this.
Around this time ( years ago) I noticed my eyesight getting worse.
Nowadays I use a visor.

Wanted to try something different, so here is another oldie, Cleo the Weretigress, done up as a tiger lady:
Could have gone a few ways with this mini. There are parts of the sculpt which are clearly feline (face, tail, extremities) but most of the rest seems intended to be human form. This presented a dilemma, as I was unsure painting tiger all over skin-sculpted areas would produce the proper effect. On the other hand, painting those areas in skin tones would preclude the inclusion of tiger stripes.
And I really wanted to paint some freehand tiger stripes, y’all.
So I split the difference. It’s hard to tell from my awful pics (best available lighting, unfortunately), but I used the red hair triad for fur, basecoating with Carrot Top Red, Auburn Shadow for shadows, and slowly highlighting by layering with increasing amounts of Highlight Orange up to 100%
For skin, I used Scholar Flesh. However, this color always seemed far too pale for my liking, so I mixed in a bit of Carrot Top. The result was a surprisingly neat pinkish tone that I will definitely find use for again somewhere.
Her hair is Ginger Cookie with various brown highlights and shades, and white patches of fur are mostly Dragon White over Rainy Grey.
This was an experiment with quite a few things outside my comfort zone, so I must ask: does the mid-transformation effect work or no? Are my colors way off? I’m not really satisfied with the color scheme on her face, what would have made it more tiger-like (and anywhere else)? Comments and critiques would be much appreciated.
