belated birthday post

May 27th, 2013 by _d2_

so yesterday was my birthday. my 30th birthday in fact – scary….

but i wanted to get a fully cast pierrot done this weekend as a surprise for myself… and while i’ve got four molds perfected and another four just about there…. i’ve come to the realization that i need to remold the head and upper torso as there are just too many flaws in the molds.

in the mean time i’ve been working on kirin and having a lot of fun with her – i’ve finished the jointing on one leg and have started on one arm. my mom wants to borrow her for a talk about joints so i’m not cutting apart her other arm and leg until later on. but she also has two ears and now i’ve also given saru her first ear – but need to finish carving the other side of her face before putting the second ear on.

i wish i could figure out how to get the molding down – i seem to have carving and casting alright, but making molds…. *sigh*

more kirin!

so while my attempt to make panda bread is in the oven, i decided to finally upload the pics i took over the weekend, including a number of kirin.

she’s coming along slowly but surely as i try to keep myself motivated. i ordered some more silicone to hopefully finish molding pierrot so i can get casts done and perfected (or at least as much as i can)

so without further ado – KIRIN!

this is what i’ve been working on – kirin. i like how she’s coming along.


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 ^^
