Delicate Adventures in 3D

I have embarked on a Delicate Adventure to make a strong table presence for my web comic Delicate Adventures. 

I drew up some basic plans here, keeping in mind the needs of this statuette, such as a pedestal for stability and a sign that locks into the egg with a peg.

Then I passed this off to my friend who will render it in a 3D program.

Next, I pass this file off to my friend who can 3D print the egg, the pedestal, and the egg itself.

Once everything is printed, this is what it looks like.

Here is the final egg, painted (by my friend with the 3D printer) and assembled! If you see  Delicate Adventures and me at a convention, look out for this beautiful statue!

Devil Belt Buckle

Finally my fascination with the occult and my need to keep my pants up coincide! The devil head I made months ago, then cast in resin, is now a belt buckle!

I drilled holes in the back of the head and installed some hardware. I think it may be generous to call what I installed “hardware” since I just bent pieces of peg board shelving brackets into what I needed. It nevertheless works.

Just to give you an idea of how the belt loops into the hardware, here’s a picture of the belt doing just that.

You may recall that the head consists on two parts: the horns, and the head itself. At some point it’d be fun to mold a pen into the horns, so you could detach them and write a mephitic contract.

ME ME ME!!

Well, Friends, I have finally been able to make an action figure  of myself. I have found the perfect head, of which I now make molds, paint, and eventually put onto a headless GI Joe.

Additionally, I have started a collection of really lovely, pigmented casts of this head. Here’s my gallery.

Finally,  I’ve made an action figure of my friend David, who doesn’t look much like me, but what’re you gonna do.

Boar Head 5 ?!

Have I gone mad?! Yes, I have started yet another Boar head! As with the fourth boar head, I tried to give this pig creases and wrinkles. I thought I’d give this piggy a wreath of oak leaves to give this boar head an alpine feel.
