I suppose I should explain that title. Below are some teaser pictures of one of the many projects I am working on. This guy is the last of the recycled goblin bead projects. His head is the last one finally. I made this a challenge for myself this summer. He is part of the ever growing species of earth goblins that are magically talented. He is an earth wizard or at least that is what he hopes to become. Below you can see the armature I created before I layer the clay. He stands about 8 inches high.
Here you can see him after his skin has been applied and the legs and arms sculpted. There is also a texture applied to the skin and then it is baked. I will now begin the multi step painting process. This is one of the most rewarding steps for me as I love to bring these characters to life through paint and color. He will most likely be accessorized and mounted on a custom base. I will post pictures of the finished result when that happens.
It has been a busy summer for me and I have tons of projects in various stages of completion. It is time to put the pedal to the medal and get them finished.
