Friends! I apologize for my lack of posts as of late: delicate adventures and I have been working a lot of conventions in the last two weeks and we were swamped. But I’m here now, and that’s what’s important.
So “wrinkles” is what I thought I wrote underneath the Pug (“morschinny” in Russian ), but apparently I didn’t make a crucial mark on the character that looks like a “W”. Shame on me for not checking, but I still like the pug.
Photoshop is one of my passions! I love making fake pictures for some reason. I guess that falls under the category of creepy, but admitting that I have a problem is the first step towards… I don’t know, something.
Here’s me and Sookie with a wrap around layer
Pee Wee: The real work of art
I was trying to tell people that I didn’t photoshop my head onto Czar Nicolas II’s body, but raised a lot of questions.
This might be the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
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.
As long time readers of the blog may recall, Charlton Heston inspired Planet of the Apes Soap when he decried ape hygiene in his famous statement, “Take your stinking paws off me, you damn, dirty ape.” Since then, I’ve considered that Planet of the Apes never addressed the issue of soap or hygiene, exlcuding the scene in Beneath the Planet of the Apes in which Dr. Zaius is in a sauna or spa of some sort.
This lovely Apesoap design is available in my society6 store.
