Ancient Guardians by sivousplay Ancient Guardians by sivousplay
I was inspired by the legend of Kuan Yin the bodhisattva who sent guardians in the form of peacocks to watch over and protect her followers.

In this wonderful 1/8 scale sculpt by pkking two angelic guardians stand over their defeated demonic foe. This is hand-painted w/ acrylics

Im very envious! i've been a fan of pkking for years and i still want to own a few of his. love his elegant  detailing but alas owning any atm is too expensive.
you do an amazing job painting these! is it your hobby? you have any idea if he paints the ones on his site himself? always wondered if he might just have someone who paints them.

Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments. This is my hobby ... I do commissions for folks here and there, but I'm an engineer by day. From some of the conversations I've had w/ PK, I'm pretty certain he does paint the kits on his site. His kits are very expensive and very fragile. He does an amazing job on the engineering side to get everything to fit well and the packaging is always top-notch as well.

Your welcome! Yeah his Kits are on the expensive side but they are totally worth the price,
the amount of technical skill involved in creating the sculptures and molding them is beyond what many artists can achieve,
I pretty much gave up on ever doing anything like his, its all the technical stuff that trips me up, I can achieve detail but to get detail and also have everything
ready to cast in resins proved too difficult.
PK really is a genius. I'm waiting for my pre-order i made on NU-WA from Resin-Kit.com, I think NU-Wa is probably one of PK's most elaborate and delicate kits (all those wings and accessories look very fragile)
I spoke with PK to try and find out what's happening with my pre-order as I didn't hear anything from them for a long time, I originally hoped that I had got the last copy since it said it was in-stock but I think I must have missed out,
anyway he does seem like a nice guy, I realize his work really takes allot of time and also they wait till they get 10 pre-orders before they even start production, thus my wait will be ages....I hate waiting ages for things I must admit. :P

I understand completely. The work involved to sculpt and produce such kits is an amazingly complex and difficult undertaking. I've tried to buy as many of his kits as I can afford to help him continue in anyway I can. I have the Nu-Wa kit and it is beautiful. I've just been waiting for the right time to start it.

I would love to own all of his work, but I have to settle for what I can afford for now.
Can't wait to receive the Nu-Wa kit! all the pictures Ive seen of the un-assembled kit looks amazing, the details and quality looks impressive.
I bet it will be a real challenge to paint!

Pkking sculptures are just wonderful. I hope that one day I will be able to bought many of them... but first, I had to be better painter for those amazing garage kit.

I really love the skin tone and shadows on wings. It looks like a picture at first sight, like an artwork. congratulations !

Lots of time and practice with a paintbrush ... I treat the sculpts like a three-dimensional piece of watercolor paper and use a watercolor like technique w/ acrylics to slowly build up color.

I have just about everything PK has sculpted .... he is a marvelous talent. My only drawback is that they have so many pieces the preparation is quite time consuming. So, I have to be in the right frame of mind to start one :)
