This is a small tutorial update. I’m finally catching up with putting some of the videos that I finished right before Anime Expo up on the site, and updated three of the tutorial pages with the videos and technique descriptions.

Light Curing Putty
Wet Sanding

It has been more than 2 full months since I last posted any sort of progress on projects I’m currently working on. With coming back from Otakon, and seeing how inspired my friend Brian is on his fairly new interest in model building; the feelings come back and I found myself sitting down at my work bench, sanding pad in one hand, and parts of Kanu in the other.

I put up my webcam on my work bench light and started filling and sanding. The below pictures were done in early July for my presentation at Anime Expo, but I hadn’t had the chance to make an update.
