I get that!

Just getting excited about the pumpkin project!

 

Have fun!

 

...something like Frankenweenie might work.

I am getting amped for the stuff also...fun is a given.

Amazing addition to your fungi-folk!  Looking forward to this!! 

 

Thanks, Rahz. I am glad you like the stuff. The Jack O'Lantern folk have been some of my favorite pieces to do for awhile.

Oh, I do love me some pumpkin-heads!

 

I'm looking forward to seeing more.

 

I am happy you like them, strawhat. Thanks for the reply.Things are evolving nicely.

These pumpkin-heads are amazing!  They make me think of Oz gone bad.  Old Mombi would approve.

 

Thanks for the reply & the reference, Warlady. I had to look up Old Mombi...I love learning something new.

She would get on well with the Pumpkinheads I am sure. I picture the Witches as creators of the Pumpkinheads & their mistresses/leaders.

The feature in my Witches' Hunters; i.e., a war band that hunts down Witch Hunters.

Following with extreme interest! Love the look of them so far.

 

Thanks for the reply, Rigel. I am glad you like the stuff.

If you want an idea where I am going with this, I have a link to my Google Album with W.I.P. pics of most of the Pumpkinheads I have done over the past few years in the first post of this thread..

The body dollie is pretty much done & ready for green stuffing on the Pumpkinhead Specter:

The hands will be a challenge I am sure.

These are great!! I'm wishing I was sculpting right along side you for this project. I love pumpkin headed monsters! At least I'll have a bunch of reference picts for when I do eventually get to it!

...it would be great having someone to craft with. We missed being within driving range by about eight or nine years.

The Pumkinheads are among my favorite things to make. There are almost as many of my Jack O'Lantern Horrors in various countries as there are Mushrooms...almost.

All that aside, I am happy you like them, Crowley. Thanks for the reply.

Great I went down a rabbit hole because of this.. it could get expensive

 

 

I have a bunch of the Grymkin thingies, but thus far not the Pumpkinhead ones...yet They are really tempting though.

Thanks for the pics, Samurai Jack.

@malefactus  The Spectre looks cool, I'm sure he will scare a lot of wannabe adventurers!

 

@SamuraiJack Those look cool, I suggest to take a look at the Grimkin faction from Privateer Press for more like that.

 

Thanks, Glitter. It would be cool if they went somewhere & had the chance to be gamed with.

I started green stuffing the Specter. I am drwing my inspiration from some of Dug Stanat's spooky creations:

Those are pretty cool and creepy!

 

 

...I think so too. Dug Stanat makes all sorts of creepy creations...very inspiring stuff.

 

I have most of the ragged, hooded cloak green stuffed less a lower extension:

The long fingered, talon like hands are underway:

I will have to wait patiently, or not for the green stuff to cure before finishing the hands.

      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.

      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?
