Thank you, Fungus Fans! 

 

Exciting!!! 

 

Thanks, Morihalda...you are the very first person ever to describe my Mushrooms as exciting.

I'm doing the stems right now , which lack the visual interest of the Faces. I'll switch to doing stem than face to maintain your interest.

 

Shroomy !!!!!!

Yeah....

I suspect there is a fungus among us !

 

...AND they are taking over...I'll refrain from any political observations at this point.

 

More mushrooms! Huzzah!

 

Thanks, Mierot...you are the second person every to find my Mushrooms exciting. This is a definite morale boost.

The "Tallest" one of the 'dollies' looks like he is about to say "Hi there, Kermit the 'Shroom here..."

Until now I hadn't thought of naming the Mushrooms, but the tall one in back, right hand side will forever be Kermit to moi...AND now Rainbow Connection is playing through my head. 

Thanks, George...I LOVE that song.

Thanks for a VERY positive reaction, Aryanun...it is much appreciated.

 

The Green Stuffing is done on the first of the Mushrooms:

Yesterday was a bust Mushroom-wise. With an unexpected trip to Austin, all that got done was a white on black prep of Wednesday's Mushroom. Today though, I managed to do a few faces that I'll prep later:

That great thing about your 'shrooms is that we don't even have to eat them to get the full tripping effect! Great job!

...Eat your heart out Dr. Tim! It's true though; I have White Rabbit & sometimes Songs to Aging Children Come playing in a loop through my head the moment green stuff touches the dolly.

Thanks for the reply, ub3r. Positive feedback is always appreciated...sometimes adored. I'm glad you like them.

Thanks for the imaginative reply, Jay! There are a few L.A.F. Folk that claim to have had Mushroom Nightmares...scary stuff. 

I opened a fresh tube of Green Stuff earlier; I'm all set for some Mushroom making...only baseball season is saving the World.

Yesterday I managed to finish up the sculpting & prep on a few more of the Mushrooms, some arms were added, AND the first of today's is setting. The excess from the pieces has been enough to finish the stems on  seven small normal(?) mushrooms. SO, without further delay, here's what the Gang look like now:

...with some closeups of the smaller of the Mushrooms & the Clarabellas:

...the more advanced one's; i.e., the ones with the arms:

AND the first Mushroom today:

...more later...perhaps.

This is the best 'not a how to make mushrooms' thread I've ever seen. (I think it might also be the only one, but I'm not certain about that).

 

Good stuff!

 

Waitaminutehere...they've got arms?!? AHHHHHH! They're gonna take over!

      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!

      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.

      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.
