A pirate pistol I’ve been working on


20121108-171025.jpg

I call it a pirate pistol and I bet its something else..but it looks legit and that’s what matters, right? πŸ™‚ it’s not the nicest casting ever with a small upsweep in the “barrer packing bar”. I assume it was just bent during a high-seas ship assault, hehe

It is available, email me if you have any interest or think it would make a keen steampunk/sky captain base πŸ™‚ Johnsonarms76@gmail.com

Thanks!

Vera Vera Close to finished!


20121015-201007.jpg

Just a quick photo of the Nerf Vera custom. I just have to cement a few pieces and paint that riser for the scope πŸ™‚

Let me know what you think, I’ll have the final photos done in a day or two!

Demon Blood Sword taking shape!


Demon Blood Sword taking shape!

Finn’s Demon Blood Sword (from the cartoon “Adventure Time”) made a lot of progress this week. All the pieces are together and the blade has been sanded into a nice even shape. This will be finished up next week, so check back for final photos. Thanks to my Dad for his fabrication skills! πŸ™‚

and yes, I can probably do additional copies for any interested parties. My email is Johnsonarms76@gmail.com Thanks!

Lord Brimstone lives!


20120822-121444.jpg

Here are some photos of the project I worked on with Christopher Glas Studios. It’s a slightly modified Nerf Stampede…lol. Ok, it’s a LOT modified. πŸ™‚ I hope you all approve and I’ll try to link some video of the gun in use. It’s rather impressive, I think!

Halo Commando Helmet


20120725-150224.jpg

I had a helmet donated for the purposes of seeing what I could do with a Carter helmet. Here’s the helmet at about 90% (still needs the visor!) – if anyone is curious about my choice of blue..I liked this better than Periwinkle lol

If you have interest in your own JA customized Helmet, let me know! Johnsonarms76@gmail.com20120725-150721.jpg20120725-150735.jpg20120725-150754.jpg

Trigun Longcolt Complete


Here’s the newest Longcolt for any Trigun Fans out there! I ended up having to use aluminum pipe to support the cylinder. I also threw out the crummy nut and bolt hardware for the frame’s pivot point. It’s all fixed in place now, but it looks a lot better and it’s a hell of a lot more secure for handling πŸ™‚

I’m ready to get after another one if anyone’s interested. Thanks!

Custom N7 Rayven progress


20120616-122015.jpg

Thought I’d also share the custom Rayven I’m doing for fun. The front grip is from a NERF hornet secured with the rail adaptor sourced from a stampede shield. The scope is from an airsoft kit.

If this one interests anyone, let me know because it’s going to need a home next week πŸ™‚

Pulse Rifle nears completion!

A Faire to remember


20120527-195859.jpg

So I did my first public show yesterday at the Orlando Mini-Maker’s Faire. I brought out a bunch of stuff and really had a great time sharing them with a lot of great people. If you were one of those kind souls, thank you for your interest and patience as I figured out how to answer 3 peoples questions at one time πŸ™‚ I think I’ll be better prepared for whatever’s next – thanks for being a part of the event!

My thanks to the great folks who put on the event, it was so well organized. I hope I’ll always see that kind of professionalism (that might be wishful thinking, hehe)

All the Best,
Brian

Custom Sneakers?


20120523-143336.jpg

So I was looking around online and saw some really cool shoe designs. I also thought I might be able to do something cool with my painting skills πŸ™‚ This was just a really rough sketch with some highlighter and dry erase markers, but hopefully the idea is there for the panels on the shoe. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions, I’d appreciate it!

Just some practice for the big stuff, but it’s starting to look pretty slick in its own right πŸ™‚ Let me know what you think!

This was a commission for a Dieselpunk-style pistol for a Sky Pirate Outfit. I hope it looks the part πŸ™‚

The “Urban Tagger”


Kind of Urban/Industrial with a bit of color. I hope the chrome lettering shows up in the photos, they look really good in person, hehe. I did my best to get the access “light” to look like it was glowing, let me know what you think about that πŸ™‚

This one is for my buddy Marty Yang at Urban Taggers. Thank you for all the support you’ve showed over the past 18 months, buddy πŸ™‚ I hope you approve of the paint job!

Finishing touches on the Steampunk Longshot


20120430-011322.jpg

Industrial Vigilon Update


20120427-102329.jpg

I’m about half way through the Vigilon and wanted to share a progress photo of the finish I’m working on for it. There will be additional coloring on the main body to match the slide handle so the design should pull together nicely for a future-industrial look. This diesel punk with some color πŸ™‚

Rotator X8 custom progress


20120419-225130.jpg

These Rotator X8’s from Lanard are really popular right now so it’s giving me a chance to play around with more added bits and pieces. This model is apparently electrically powered, but I’m not sure exactly how it works. Looks ok though, yeah? πŸ™‚

Thanks for the visit and here’s a few photos of stuff you’ll see more of soon!

Final view of Professor Johnson’s Steam-powered Hand Cannon Repeater


20120417-202232.jpg

All finished with the new brass technique and I’m quite satisfied. The photos can’t really show the depth in the paint, but it’s pretty snazzy in person. This is the same style that I did for the SP longshot. I hope you guys like the look!

Regards
Brian

Lighting test on the Longshot


20120413-012052.jpg

This was just an idea I decided to try out. Feel free to let me know if you like the look – also potentially with green lighting instead of the white/blue in the photo. Thanks!

20120410-013708.jpg

Just wanted to show of the new name plates that Christopher Glas (http://hypercats.net) made for me. They came out awesome and a little paintwork made them blend right in to the longshot πŸ™‚
