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!

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!

Finally set aside time to conquer the camo lovin’ Militant Mat Mite! I was dreading this one a bit because how often do you paint tiny camo? Turned out to be pretty easy once I had gotten into the flow of it. I also couldn’t decide which detail color to go with..Yellow, red, or the current bright green? I obviously opted for yellow, to match the other two. I might do another version for fun. *Shrug* We’ll see.

We all knew this was coming! I made the first pair of Green Ant charms. Still haven’t decided if im happy with this shade of green…testing, testing. Also you’ll see the black detail that was meant to also be on the Fire Ant version. It will be! I’m just silly

 

Keep your eye out for the Militant Mat Mite in the next few days!

Though I could not be at King Of Trios last weekend, I was able to spend that time working on these!

 

This is a personal project that has been sitting in my mind for some time now. I finally set aside other work to tackle the first version. I’ve wanted a way to show my support/pride/fandom other than the usual t-shirt. Especially as a female, we have accessories that we have the option to wear out of the house each day. So why not use my skills to add extra flare to my wardrobe?! So far i’ve only painted and assembled earrings but I plan to make hair clips, buttons, magnets even!

 

I started with The Colony..because I get three mask variations for one sculpt! I plan on doing a pair for each Ant and eventually im sure ill create a version for their newer masks.

 

When I can set aside the time I will be sculpting some more of my favorite luchador’s masks! Perhaps an Ultramantis is in the future?

 

I created the original in a very hard grade wax in order to get sharp detail. The wax sculpt is then casted in 2 part liquid rubber. Once the mold sets the orignal is removed and I can cast as many duplicates as I want in resin! These are painted and assembled by hand. Fun fun fun! *Note: Im silly and forgot to paint the extra black detail at the bottom of the mask. Whoops!*
