Brotherhood of Steel – Fallout Pin Up

I’ve always been inspired by the nose art pin up girls of WWII and have wanted to try painting one of my pin ups directly on to metal.

And in fitting with Fallout’s salvaged aesthetic I recycled a 20x30cm tin sign, weathering and sanding off its original paint.

I wanted to capture the Petty Girl glowing tan and sweet smile of vintage pin ups. I imagine that an image like this would be like a recruitment poster for the Brotherhood faction.

She is entirely painted using Vallejo acrylic paint including the Brotherhood logo and text that I airbrushed stencil on before beginning the figure. The finished painting is protected and sealed with UV cut Matte clear spray varnish.

I will have her on display and for sale at Supanova this weekend (April 16 & 17th) at the Melbourne Showgrounds, Ascot Vale.

 


Painting Tin – WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday –  Painting on to a tin sign.

Inspired by the work of George Petty and WWII nose art, I’m experimenting with painting directly on to metal. The painting is on a new-made-to-look-old tin sign that I sanded and distressed myself.

Those of you with a keen eye and a knowledge of popular video games might be able to guess what she is promoting.

I will have the finished painting for sale at Supanova Melbourne next month.
