MOTU, Mini-Statues Rio Blast by valstaples MOTU, Mini-Statues Rio Blast by valstaples
In the vein of the Jitus piece:

and the Tung Lashor piece:

Here's another MOTU Mini-statue coloring under the art of Emiliano Santalucia:

I like the update by the Four Horsemen, especially Rio's gun... how it's a giant revolver.
Nice touch!

You don't get to enjoy all his guns unfolded in this mini-statues (his chest gun, knee guns and his back pack gun), but it's still cool.

Liking the update of Rio Blast. The 4H did a bang up job.

If its ok, a quick colouring question. The shine on the gun, was that added above the ink layer, or below it?

I'm not sure which metallic rendering you are speaking about.
There's a lot of reflective contrast all over the gun. :)

The little glow right there in the middle is over the lineart.

How do you color metal? There's no exact science.
Various metals have different properties: different base hues, different polish.

The best you can do is just study metal around you and learn how to fake it the best you can.

Rio Blast wasn't part of New Adventures. ;)
He was part of the classic Masters of the Universe toy line.

So shiny!

PS. Been waiting for updates on MVCreations-site for 6months now, lol.
Nate still working on his children's book-illustrations?

The MV site was overhauled a couple times already.
But it ends up sitting there near completion, never finished, thus never used.
And during that time, Matt learns a lot more about PHP and wants to redo it. :)
That's fine, though. None of the comics are ready to be solicited yet, so the site doesn't need to be up until then.

Nate's busy at the moment.
But we're both looking forward to Wildwood.
It won't be out for a very long time, though.
My guess is 2010 or 2011 before it comes out.
