I found a wonderfully bizarre illustration of an armored Rhino by James Christensen. It is just my kind of Beasty:
AND I just happened to have a toy Rhino grazing in The Vault:
SO I started working on making my own version of the illustration:
At this point the green stuff work is done with the exception of some touch ups & embellishments:
The Rhino in his prime...so to speak:
I thought I would be more motivated to finish painting the Big Guy if I post here as well as in The Last Hurrah Thread...I have a lot of strange thoughts.
Today I started adding some colors to the base. Photos are likely...sometime or other.
A few days ago I started a new type of Mushroom based on some Pinterest polymer clay pieces like this one:
This one & his kin are quite a bit larger than the ones I make, but the detail is something to aspire to.
Here is a step by step of my Mushroom in progress up to yesterday. This is the plumber's epoxy dolly:
The Kneadotite (green stuff):
I use the left over green stuff to make smaller versions of the Big Mushroom...you probably already notice that:
There will be more of this type in varying sizes AND their bases coming along soon...or eventually.
I have been wandering through the wonderfully inspiring photos on Pinterest. The Mushroom pictured there have created a need to make some new Faerie Folk Mushrooms of my own.
I put up pic on my Last Hurrah Thread, but since this may be a protracted effort, I thought I would post here as well. These are a few of the ones I am doing versions of:
The first stage dollies were made on Wednesday:
Green stuffing & additional dollies on Thursday.
Friday was lost to H&R Block, AND yesterday was a daze. Today my enthusiasm clicked into high gear.
The result was the Two Tall Mushroom got their green stuff done, along with some work on the supporting cast:
Since these pics were taken, I have done a base coating of black on the Tall Fellows, & finished the green stuffing on the medium sized mushrooms.
Have I mentioned that I have a tendency to get carried away?
SO I have been hoping to get Enigma's Oz-zuh moon Face; AND I have been waiting almost patiently for a restock of Enigma at C.M.o.N..
Realizing that I just might not live long enough to see that happen I decided to make my own version of the Guy. This is what theirs looks
This is my version:
Oz in the Spooky Woods:
I still would like to do Enigma's, but I am pleased with my own attempt...it might be a lack of taste issue.
SO it started with a post on DM's Craft. My friend, tauster, was making The Mother of Monsters. He was using Marjory The Trash Heap of Fraggle Rock fame as his inspiration.
I wasn't all that familiar with Marjory, although I loved what episodes of Fraggle Rock I got to see, but I HAD to do my own version of The Girl:
I got further inspiration from our own alchemist's post:
Magrat The All Seeing Trash Heap aka The Divine Miss Mags is a combination of the two inspiration pieces with a healthy dose of my own dubious imaginations.
SO without further delay, here is Mags:
The Door To Wherever:
There you go.
For those interested in size, Mags is a bit over 7" high & is resting on a base about 9" in diameter.
