Another month another batch of Mushrooms & Associates. This month is a bit lighter than last. I started it toward the end of last month's Gang...which is still waiting on some Show Off photos. 

I am also hoping to squeeze in some Pumpkinheads & other Halloween strangeness elsewhere. More of that later. For now, The Mushrooms:

With the ever popular Leo Sizechek for comparison:

I got the idea to do a Mushroom/Goblin Wizard from this illustration:

Mine is a bit seedier:

A Goblin Faerie sidekick seemed appropriate. Appropriate or not I wanted to try out some paper punch butterfly wings with a foam coating inner layer:

AND base coated & ready for color:

More whenever.

"We must not look at goblin men
We must not buy their fruits;

Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?" 
--Christina Rosetti, "Goblin Market"

Love these little guys, gobs and shrooms both! So expressive, so weird, as fairytale creatures should be.

...only Timothy O'Leary advocated Goblin produce...OH WOW, the colors, Man.

Thanks for the poem & the reply, Rigel. I am happy you like the stuff. There is a distinct possibility that I may be a Fairy Tale character...if the description fits, you are it.

Thanks, Glitter...glad you like him/them.

This one has experimental wings. I love the ones I have gotten from Reaper, but only two of the four types are usable with the Goblins.

If the new ones work out, that will give me more & less expensive options.

Thanks for the kind reply, Marineal. I am delighted that they make you happy. That is the reaction I try for. I do have some Folk who get nightmares from them.

If you spot any that really have a particularly cheering effect, PM me & I will send him/her/them/whatever to you...it is my version of a joyful sound.

The first of the October Mushrooms is now finished:

The rest of the Lads have seen some groundwork & other progress...sort of.

I love that colour combo!

He looks really poisonous and psychedelic. I'll bet meeting him will result in a strange experience.

Thanks, Glitter. In person he looks less poisonous, but still a bit psychedelic. The colors are slightly off in the photo.

I would imagine that a meeting with a sentient Mushroom his size would be a mind altering experience at the least.

      Halloween always gets my mind going with spooky thoughts...rather like the rest of the year, but more so.
      Now I have been making Pumpkinhead/Jack O'Lantern Folk for quite a while...here's an album of them:
       
      https://photos.app.goo.gl/KbDNTNRCMYcchlRn2
       
      Then I stumbled on this illustration on Pinterest,  AND I had to try that sunny smile:

       
      I was fairly pleased with the test results:

       
      I did a second one  with what I had learned from the first:

       
      ...with a closer look:

       
      The second is closer to the size of the Reaper Jack O'Lanterns that I usually use for the Pumpkinheads. The first is a bit larger. I may wind up using a GW Orc torso
      like this one from  2017:

       
      The legs are GW Zombie legs.
      This another possibility:

       
      OH THE POSSIBILITIES!

      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.
