Finally finished this guy up. Here’s the “official” shot (desperately grainy; I hate my camera):

And some more:

WIP – Koopa.

This week started working onna belt. Not sure how well that’ll come out, but this is what we’re workin’ with so far:


Loops’re a bit thick, I’ll hafta fix that.

WIP – Gator.


So I started adding a hand to him.   At the moment it’s kind of rough because I didn’t want it just to be hanging there; I figured it should be doing something.  (I know, I said that last time.) But I haven’t decided what yet.

So this week I worked a bit on texture. It doesn’t come out too well—the hair needs a good reshaping, and the eyebrows… the eyebrows… require serious help—but… one day at a time.



WIP – Gator.

It’s another adorable character belonging to someone else.  This week I put an arm on him.

2009-09-01-gatorNo hand yet, I know.  It’s not a very good arm, either; it definitely could do with some form (and action! it should be doing something!).  But I’m taking pics anyway since most of you haven’t seen anything on this guy yet.

What did I work on for this guy this week?  Teeny-tiny little ankle band spikes.

2009-09-01-victor Well, I say teeny-tiny little ankle band spikes.  This fellah is eight inches tall and 1:12 scale, so we’re looking at what ought to be three-inch spikes.  But in actuality: teeny-tiny little ankle band spikes.

I thought I’d post some of the stuff I’m working on. Putting up a static WIP feels like a bad idea to me (too much temptation to say ‘good enough’ and move on) so here’s a video of me at work.

This is a sculpture of a Koopa I’m working on for a friend. I worked on it for about half an hour last night; recorded about half of it, and sped it up to save you time. Sorry about the angle; I’m going to have to find a better place to put my camera.

I think I’ll be posting more like this.
