HUGE update

December 4th, 2011 by _d2_

i know things have been quiet on the blog for quite some time – however it doesn’t mean i was idle!

i’ve been working on my mini girls – carving down the fingers to make her hands look more elegant, working on a large bust option (i also plan on doing a flat bust option), and several new animal inspired heads.

first up are the hands (errr – one hand so far) :

and the large bust compared to the original bust:

and here are the new heads -voodoo – inspired by the godsmack song by the same name. i’m using an african cape cobra as my model and plan on casting her in white and doing golden toned blushing and such. the head is still very much in the beginning stages – i also plan on doing a special head cap for her that will come down behind the neck to look like a cobra hood that is opened (obviously won’t be true to a real snake, but she’s my own creation). she will also have scales down along her throat – so she will be getting her own bust piece.

kitsune – as the name suggests, i’m going for a mischievous fox lady inspired by japanese legends. the large bust originally was going to be just for her, but i may have it as a standard option. the head is actually a heavily modified xolotl cast – can you tell? i will be sculpting fox feet and possible paw-hands for her.

song – this head wasn’t in the plans, but after watching a full day’s worth of cartoons, she came about. there is no real model i’m using for the head, but something akin to a parakeet is what i envision. i think bright colors would work well on the simple sculpt, and i do plan on sculpting my own wing arms with hands for her.

and here are all eight heads together (wow, eight! ) -
top row (left to right) : voodoo, xolotl, kitsune, song
bottom row (left to right) : unnamed mod of pierrot, pierrot, beatrix, cooper

i also started yet another new version of hollow’s lost head – this one i’m very happy with! she also has hands! yay – i can’t wait to see her all together! again…. i will do my best not to loose this head too.



and lastly – i have plans for a new head for the large body. he’s inspired by one of my favorite eighties songs – mr. roboto by styx. i plan on doing a face plate that will come off to reveal a robot skull – and what else to call him but killroy (yes, yes, i know the name really only has one ‘l’ but it’s part of the story i see developing about him) !

about


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
