In what can only be described as an act of pure insanity, I am going to attempt to paint this classic George Petty pinup model onto the side of my Crossbow.
Posted Image
Now, I've painted several WarHammer 40K miniatures, my latest one being this dude. He's only about 1.5" high, and 2.5" long. I'm more used to painting on a 3-D surface, but this time I'm going to be painting her on the side, on a flat surface. It's going to be a mix of painting a miniature and a normal piece of art on canvas, I'm assuming...

Painting update:

I started with the hardest part, the face. From here on there should be little difficulties, just lots and lots and lots and lots of wet blending. Here's a pic of what I have so far:

And here's a zoom of the face.

Any artist knows that painting on a smooth white surface is much easier than painting on a dark purple, plastic one. So that white stuff is the primer. If anyone was wondering, I am using Games Workshop paints, about a dozen or so of them.

More painting updates to follow.

Damn that is fucking hot. Great idea, making her topless might be a better one. Topless with a thong, and you've got a winning pair. Nice War Hammer figure by the way.

Haha, thanks for the replies.

As for making her topless - eh, she's already wearing a skin tight (perhaps air tight, too) skimpy lil' number, I don't think making her topless will be that appealing or necessary. It's a pinup, I had to show some decencey. I wouldn't want it to be that distracting when I'm running around Nerfing...

"Groove! Guy, 12 o'clock!"
"Mmmmm..."
"Groove?!"
"...boobies..."
"GROOVE!!"
"mmm...what were you saying?"

As for a mastubatory Crossbow...this isn't an X-rated Xbow, and anyone that can masturbate to a painting like this...needs some help. *cough* *cough* ALEX *cough*

Dan, your lil' number was simply a motivational tool. I told the guys at DCN I wanted to do this, and now I am.

I'm thinking that once I'm through with some chores and CS scrims I will be able to post some more painting updates.

I think this would look awesome on my LNL:

'Cept I'm not much of a painter, more of a drawer. I think the printable sticker would work good. But not as cool as painting it. It's like a work of art. You know, like those guys that carve these insane designs over the whole barrels of guns?
Like this, except they carve in the metal barrel. Of like glocks and Colts.

Oh my god Groove, that's brilliant. I know people who would shit gold bars for an xbow like that much style. It's perfect the way it is, but I just wonder what it would look like OD green, with the nerf logo on the stock, and a little black dart icon for each "kill" :P :P :P

Yeah, that would work well. They sell sticker paper for your printer, right? Print it out at a decent res, cut it out, and you got a helluva sexier LnL.

Katachi, I was actually thinking the same thing....

Some OD green, some kind of silver detailing or shark teeth to make it have that older bomber feel. Im thinking of doing something like grooves SF with the two ill be getting soon, but with a good/evil/positive/negative thing with the set.

HOLY SHIT…..holy shit that is awesome!
I love the idea of painting the George petty on the side of and x-bow, classic act…classic. I thought of the same idea, well not as top notched as yours but a symbol pin-up on the side of one of my guns. Kick ass paint job… for you I will pay for your cookie.

hell yeah, but I said his was perfect the way it is because there's a fine line between adding just enough style, and flat out reproducing a particular style on your piece. I think his is just enough. The full bomber might be a bit much.

I know people who actually admit to doing this with anime pr0n. Now that I think about it, that really, really scares me. I agree with you, Groove. Whoever jacks off to a drawing really needs help

Great paintjob! I wish I could do something that detailed. For my painting projects, I am working on airbrushing The Cheat on my NES right now. When I'm done, maybe I'll post pictures of it in the off-topic section.

Well, I had some unexpected visitors tonight, and my digital camera isn't charged, so this is the last shot from about 4 hours ago. It's not the current status of the painting, but I thought I'd post what I had before I went to bed. Sometimes you just can't win!

We need to clear this up, Painting isnt really a modification (IMO) . Sure your modifying the paintjob/look, but it really has notthing to do with the guns performance or internals. Nuff of this I dont wanna ruin Grooves thread.

I cant wait to see the finished product, youve got the face pretty damn good. I was never good at painting faces, or anything humanlike for that matter. Gotta love wet blending acrylics.

Yeah, uh. I would definately lay a coat of paint down before I did any sort of fine detail work on that gun. But that's just me, yo.
