I'm back with a quickly painted superhero figure.  This miniature is based on a character called Cankor, from a recently produced surreal indie comic of the same name.  He was created by comic artist, Matthew Allison and you can see his work at 

A drawing by Matthew Allison of the character it's based on:

Inspired by Allison's weirdo comic, I started with a "Tarantula" figure from Old Glory's Superfigs line.  I filled in the eyes with green stuff before priming.  Ideally the body would have a little less muscle definition, but what the heck.

I tried to keep the colors light but still have some contrast and shading.  I have to say it was fun painting a miniature that wasn't covered in lots of little doohickeys and details, because I was able to finish it pretty fast.

 The other cool thing about this mini is that I sent a picture of it to Matthew Allison and he liked and it looks like he's going to trade me a piece of art for it.  Yay!


  1. That is cool! I'm not surprised the artist likes it... people like having fans who like their work enough to be inspired by it :)

    Calling his work surreal is an understatement if ever there was one. I can never get into stuff like that, because I myself am so bloody literal-minded. I'm not even super into Salvador Dali.
