Awesome gift!!

I love using my wax seal stampers for holiday cards! Got some wax candles on blowout the other day from Hobby Lobby:)

That is seriously cool. It's a great gift idea.

 

Your design looks (to me) somewhat reminiscent of some ancient Greek coin designs. Were those an influence on you, or is this a case of great minds thinking alike?

What an awesome idea. 

I always love the gifts that show someone put a lot of thought into the gift and recipient.

That is an amazing gift idea, not to mention a great use of that extra bronze you've got left over now that you are using pewter for the armatures!

Not consciously anyway.

 

As I have been continuing this, I am finding that the real challenge will be to sculpt in a neat and clean 8 pt font on a curve. :wacko:

Here is the mock up for the text:

This might be an obvious comment, but it looks to me like you would want to move the '2018' about 5° clockwise on the curve to center it below the gap. Are you thinking of using a printout and something like a pounce wheel to get the outlines of the letters?

The Owl's tail goes there.

 

I haven't yet figured out how to transfer this to the sculpt, short of hand drawing it.  I'm pretty good at hand lettering, so...

One option might be to get the disc, complete with outline and lettering, produced by a stamp manufacturer. Then you can transfer your owl sculpting to that to make a composite master.

New life goal: Become cool enough to be worthy of being able to call Talespinner "Peeps"

 

My wife spent six months in college studying in Athens. She got Athena's owl from the old Greek coin tattooed on her ankle to commemorate going. I do see a little bit of a resemblance. I agree that this may be a case of great minds thinking alike!

      Not sure if this belongs here or under conversions but since I need help/feedback on the sculpting, I figured here was better. 
       
      I am adding puffy sleeves to a figure and I am very much a novice when it comes to sculpting. I have been working on one and while it looks good to me, I need a second opinion. What do you guys think?

      "Way I hear tell, ain't no percentage in gettin' the Cactus Folk riled up. They don't shoot easy and wrasslin' 'em won't end well for ya."

      Sculpted a gumby-esque Saguaro Vaquero and a zaftig Cactus Dryad for Weird West purposes. (Though if I ever run a game set in New Crobuzon, they'd work there too.)
      Legs are stubby and bell-bottomed, skin rugose, arms long and segment-jointed. The cowpoke's rope is twisted wire.
       


      The Dryad's hair was intended to be Crested Saguaro, but heck, Opuntia works too. The pistol hand came from my bits box, I forget what sprue originally. Probably Chronoscope of some kind.

      I don't know *exactly* where she falls on the SFW line (is a plant really nude if it's not flowering? Curves, but nothing explicit as I understand it) so I'll compromise on Spoilers for now and delete images if need be.

      I painted the Bones Black, Bones, and Wizkids owlbears as Great Horned Owls. This is the Bones Black owlbear. Not sure why it isn't in the store, even under the special edition section. I used the number it was assigned my order form. Anyway, it is a pretty cool model! I have several of them so will be able to paint them as different types of owls. I definitely need a Hedwig owlbear!

      The thought came to me, burning-hot in my mind, that while probably no one else would ever need one, *I* could really use a great ape in mortarboard and academic robes. An orangutan for preference, given their eccentric genius and their handlike feet. Reaper already does a Cyber-Ape, but that is a violent simian, and also I want three "hands" in use rather than two.

      Here's the rough sketch, 



      and here's an armature I made late last night, compared to Orangutango. 


      I've been reading the advice posts, so I'll take it slow-ish, work in layers, and be ready to murder my darlings...

      ...is there other stuff I should be warned about? Is this a fool's errand? (yes, obviously, but can I *do* it?)

      Love to hear from y'all!

      “OK, so the Fireball spell didn’t work that well. Any other ideas Owl?”
      “Hoo!? You asking me!? I’m just an owl.”
       
      Probably my last mini for the year.
      Wasn’t planning on painting the cloak brown since it sorta merges with the hair and owl, but a slight accident forced it on me.
      I like the way it turned out tough.
       
      Thanks for looking.
