Since learning more and more techniques for coloring in school, I’ve been practicing on my black and white art. Here’s a quick practice exercise I did with General Ursus. Clearly, I enjoyed making him shine.
I’m very excited to announce that I finally made a two part mold successfully! I’ve finally started making a private army of original Kenner Stormtrooper action figures. Most of these troops look like they’ve seen a lot of action: missing limbs, head cavities; you get the picture. Grotesque deformities and injuries not withstanding, I’m on the road to making two part molds more effectively.
Here is the mold itself. I’ve wrapped rubber bands around it to keep the seal snug.
And we have a stormtrooper! Missing hands, but success for the most part.
I read an article about “pirate fishermen”, fishermen that overfish and use slave labor. In spite of the sobering prose, I found the accompanying photos exquisite. What better way to practice my newly rekindled love of coloring than on highly referenced drawings?
My mom brought a newspaper back from her trip to Arizona. In one of the sections was a lovely picture of some mountains in Sedona, with some fellows hanging out on their bicycles in the foreground. Guess what happened next?
