Creating vintage art can be achieved in many ways. But have you tried scanning old toys and painting over them to make unique digital art that recalls the 1980s heyday of the Masters Of The Universe? Combining his love of customising action figures and kit-bashing 3D models for concepts artist Ken Coleman will show you how to do just this. 

Over the past year Coleman has developed an extensive library of 3D scanned assets, including character heads, armour and weapons to composite scenes of his favourite characters from the world of He-Man, Skeletor and the Masters Of The Universe.
