Halloween and on

I finished the 2 Mega Munny's and they were shipped and arrived at their destination mostly unharmed so a fairly big success with these 2 pieces. This is the only picture that I have received from the client and I think they look pretty awesome:

Finished these guys from design to completion in 5 weeks. It was a sprint from the very beginning.

Working on my Kaws Dissected Companion Box Heroes suit and he will be done soon enough. He's gonna be freakin awesome. I making him for the Kaws Instagram costume competition, but I will likely bring it to Comic Con next year because he's just too cool to not show off else where. 

I intend to get all of your Headless Horseman resin heads out and delivered before Halloween. I finished printing the cloth bags they will all come in and I just want to photograph them all together and  get them in their bags, signed and numbered, and in the mail. 

I'll have a couple other goodies up for sale on the site, random colored Horseman heads you might be interested in, maybe a body or 2, we'll see. :) Just be on the look out if you're interested.

All other commissions are still in queue and underway, I'm just plodding along trying to get them done as awesome as possible...and as quickly as that allows.
Thanks for looking guys.

2 Days to go

The big project is about to come to a close, thankfully. I have been working on these 2 Mega Munny's non-stop for the last 2 weeks and I have to have them finished and shipped by Wed afternoon. I still have a ton of work to do but I have alot done as well. I have all the sculpting done, I have both jackets completely sewn together and finished, I have the glasses cut and ready for paint, I have the base colors down on both heads and about to start the faces, I have both bases just about finished with paint, I have the plexi glass lenses cut for her glasses and I'm going to be molding and casting the lenses for his goggles so I have the masters sculpted and fitted and my silicon is arriving today. It was a pain in the ass too because sculpey shrinks slightly when you bake it so it kept jusssstttt not fitting. I have to screen print the logos on the back of the jackets, make their name tags and sculpt their accessories...and I guess that's it :) Their accessories are a biopette, which is a high tech pipette, and something called a sequencing chip, which I have no idea what that is but I know what it looks like. I'm going to cut the  sequencing chips out of 1/8 plywood and pant them, and the biopette frame will be cut from the same material but then will be sculpted out from that as if it were the central axis and then I will mold and cast that as well since i need 2 of them. I have the faces all mapped out already so I just need to transfer the line art onto the face and paint in the varying shades which I have mixed already as well. I went to bed at 5 last night and I'm sure I will be up as long as I have to be tonight and tomorrow. If I have to I will push the biopette and sequencing chips to Wed night and overnight them to Boston On Thursday.

Like I said, still alot of work to do, but I think the end is in sight.
