Artist Proof Studio Coconspirator Jason Tarpley

With the release of the latest Kitbuilders Issue (#62) we are finally able to reveal the amazing paint work of Jason Tarpley!

Jason has been beyond supportive of our works since the beginning and has painted nearly all our releases.

He painted the Chelonian Warrior with our own Paul Komoda winning 2nd place at AFM's Model Contest at Monsterpalooza!

Jason also took 2nd place with the pictures you see below, our Death Corps Zombie bust sculpted by Paul Komoda.

We're happy to debut a new and hopefully recurring column titled Artist Proof Coconspirators, spotlighting those talented people that help make us look good!

So without further ado, here's Jason Tarpley's fantastic build up of Paul's Death Corps Zombie!

  1. Given his love of fresh and original concepts, I'm not surprised Jason's turning out such great pieces for APS. The artistry that goes into your sculpts combined with Jason's color theories (and they do come from some of the strangest sources of inspiration) consistently produce some remarkable results.

    I've been setting funds aside to nab one of APS's kits and every time Jason drops new paints I can't make up my mind as to which piece to tackle. He brings out all the subtle elements, creating some very complex finishes.

  2. What a great piece! The colours and skin texture/facial structure are awesome. I'm not usually one for busts, but I like this one. Well done guys.
