As usual there are always many irons in the fire so I am very happy to show off my newest completed project. These little luchadores were sculpted in wax, molded in Mold Max XLS and cast in Smooth Cast So Strong clear resin. Each cast is tinted with various dyes and pigment powders.

 

I am already currently working on Green Ant’s tag team partner, Fire Ant! Naturally, they will be available as a set.

 

You can purchase your own little, Green Ant resin luchador at both my store: https://resinrambles.storenvy.com and The Colony’s merch site: https://thecolony.storenvy.com

Felt like posting a WIP blog for a project i’ve been having a lot of fun with.  He’s still VERY rough and needs a lot of work still. Sculpted in castilene. He will have a decorative round base when finished bringing him to about 7 inches tall. It will be molded and cast in resin, garage kit style, with a mold for each arm and a single mold for the torso. I’m going to have to try out a few methods to get his antenna right. Most likely will be cast in resin seperately and attached, like the arms. I can’t wait till I get to cast a few of these guys in some green clear resins!

Ok. Back to work!

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.
