    Thank you IRS for the stimulus check...I thought I would test out some colors on a chaos as well as trying to figure out how to use an airbrush...yes, and airbrush. There are still portions that were done with a paintbrush, because I will never let that go.
    Metallic blue base with black,brown, gold, sky blue, and of course...pink for the horn and probe

    Ao Zag is based off the yokai named Ao Andon or, the Blue Lamp Ghost. Years ago, people would gather round and tell ghost stories. After each story, a lamp was put out. After the 100th story is told and the 100th lamp is put out, Ao Andon appears. The lamp in the Zag is the last lamp and when you turn off the lights it glows and so does the mouth and eye of the Zag....almost as if it was a sign of things to come. Zag is a mix of clear and solid blue and clear purple with a golden eye. Pearl finish and pipecleaners in the arms and legs.
    Thanks for the light, Gizzy :)

    Hey Bert....great job!!!!

    I like the colors that you choose as well as the marbling affect around the legs - keep it up

    Thanks. There's actually a lot going on with this one. If I had a DSLR, I'd be able to take some close ups but I'll try to take some details tonight.

    Dig it.
    Wish you finished in time for the Chaos swap.
    Wonder if that's coming yet.

    I did...but I also used a paintbrush. I put a little too much color on it so the base doesn't come through as much as I want it too. :(

    Updated with detail. I need a DSLR for detail shots.

    they look great together and I really like that you decide to keep the hand on instead of the attachment.

    Added. GID Visighost...that has no name yet. I'm not too happy with the GID on this one. It came out very uneven. :(
    I might try solid colors on a milky white Visighost.

    That Visighost reminds me of the recent Mummy Boy glow custom that was at the S777 show.

    The one from the show had green hands and feet and on it's head.

    This Visighost looks great.
