So almost a year ago, I sat down to my desk and sculpted my stress away. I was spending all my time working in hard, slow wax for the Monkeynaut prototype. I needed a break to losen myself back up. This silly little catfish was the result!

 

Well, he was molded and casted a few times but eventually ended up on the back burner when life got in the way. I’m happy to say I finally got to revisit this little cutie. I’ve had some real fun bringing a small army of them to life!

 

 NOW, you can finally get your hands on one! Head on over to my store and pick out a cute desk mate for yourself!

 

The Fatty Cats are the first of quite a few personal projects I’ve had in the works. Time to give these neglected resin ramblings some love and attention! Stay tuned for more resin creations!

A second Chocobo commission for a wonderful client. He had requested a mother chocobo with it’s baby and their pet cat. It is a gift for his expecting wife who adores these silly feathered characters.

 

I really enjoyed working on this. It was definitely a learning experience once again. This time I chose to work with Magic Sculpt. It’s actually the first time i’ve tried this stuff out. Over all, im a big fan. Sets up as hard as a rock, sandable, and has pretty good amount of work time. Still though, it has its drawbacks that I had to learn to work around but I look forward to using Magic Sculpt again soon!

 

Still learning every time I sit down and paint as well. Color matching, adding details, dealing with texture. All fun but I still prefer to sculpt all day instead ;)

I learned a lot working on this commission piece! I now know that birds are fun to sculpt and feathers are NOT. At least I can now probably sculpt a pile of feathers with my eyes closed!

 

 

 

 

Work in progress roundup!

Monkeynaut, my first vinyl toy with my buddy Eddie, made his debut at Designer Con 2012 back in November. Keep an eye out for a second wave of Monkeynauts after the new year. We will have some fun colored blanks so keep an eye out for them! Our first wave of blanks found new homes and now we are seeing some awesome customs pop up!

 

*Also there are plans in the works for a custom show around spring of 2013. I’ll be posting more details as we get closer to the date.*

 

Check out this insane work from Drilone! I’ve been a fan of his work for quite some time now so it’s so exciting him work on Monkeynaut.

 

 

 

Dski_one of  Lulubelltoys.com did these great customs! Follow him on instagram!

 

 

 

 

Well, I finally get to share this project with you!

 

This critter was created as a gift to my awesome sister http://carakhan.com/ . I finally was able to visit and give it to her and since it was a surprise I had to keep it on lockdown.

 

This is my second venture into soft body sculptures/dolls and my first time working with fur fabric. The head, paws, and feet are all one of a kind (no molds used or created) sculpted in Super Sculpey regular and firm (mixed 50/50). After baking they were painted both by airbrush and paintbrush. The tail is posable. There is no armature inside, just polyfill stuffing and pellets for weight.

 

This critter was not meant to be a 100% anatomical representation of a chinchilla but more of a fun, overly fluffed, whimsical version. Hope you guys like him!

So i’ve been interested in trying my hand at OOAK (One of a kind) soft body dolls/soft body sculptures. There are some really amazing artists out there who excel at making them and have inspired me to make my own. Needless to say, it was a daunting task since there are no tutorials and i’ve never sewn in my life.

 

Now I can say that i’ve figured out my own way of doing things..trial and error. I made a bunch of mistakes and discovered quicker ways of doing things. My mom helped me out a lot, teaching me how to hand sew and use a sewing machine. It was a journey… but a fun one to say the least!

 

His face and fins are sculpted in Super Sculpey. There is a single wire armature inside from head to tail. His fins can flop and move freely. He is stuffed with soft polyfill and pellets for added weight. His belly is covered in beige velour fabric.

 

I will definitely be making more. Different species..styles..furs..fabrics!

 

If you are interested in purchasing him please send me an email through the Contact page :)
