And with this, the last of the Triforce pendants have been made and sent out. (This was a special request with silver wire and matching chain.)
Should anyone else want to commission a Triforce pendant in the future, I’m afraid the price may be quite a bit higher due to the triangle crystals being long discontinued. Dealing with the Swarovski aftermarket is not always pleasant.
I thought I wasn’t going to do anything today… Two more decade-old sculptures “reduxed”, Project Omega: Test 1-3-7.1 (catchy, I know) and Nitese. You can visit their gallery pages (Omega, Nitese) for more pictures, or pick them up cheap on Ebay currently (Omega, Nitese), possibly later at the Shiny Things Etsy shop.
At least that’s more or less what my brain is screaming at me right now. And my hands. And… and everything.
Is she done? Ha. Ha ha. Ha HAA ha ha. Ha. No. This lady needs to get all gussied up for her date with a certain bus. And there’s a lot of trimming to do, because yarn. A few touch-ups will likely be in order too. But I’m just gonna take the rest of the weekend off, thanks.
I’d wanted to incorporate a few chocobo designs, and I think I successfully did so… except that somehow she wound up standing at 12 inches tall “at attention”. So. Uh. Well. Unexpected results. I messed with my “traditional” structure, as well, going for a separated tail. Each tail feather, the crest, wings, beak, head, neck, legs and toes are poseable. Because simple isn’t my style.
Obviously, more and better pictures to come when she is actually finished. …Whenever that may be.
Exy and Tecate, another “sculpture redux” from nearly a decade ago. I really love the movement on these figures still, I have to say. Getting Exy’s copper highlights to show up was surprisingly easy, which meant that getting Tecate’s silver-coated black markings to show properly was an insane nightmare in moving the lamp over and over and finally just “The nature of light itself is against me and I must accept that”-ing it. As usual, there are a lot more pictures at their gallery page. They’re currently available as a set as well.
My very first Patreon patron (yay!) requested a sketch detailing my ideal Lalaloopsy (no infringement meant, not affiliated, etc.) creature. Well of course it’d be an adorable (and ever so slightly creepy) dragon.
…I am very dangerously debating about turning this into a plush project. I’ve been getting better with making patterns and could use more practice, but… Maybe after chocobos.
Since I keep running into lovely creative people who are giving Patreon a try, I figured I’d go ahead and set one up for myself. Have patience, I’m still feeling my way around the site. I’m quite hoping that a “one-time tip” option will be implemented soon, but if you’d like to give a one-time donation, please read this. (I suppose PayPal is always an option, but… you’ll have to contact me privately for my PayPal information.)
As for work, still making chocobos for charity. Somewhere around knee-deep in wondering when, if ever, I may actually complete them. Look forward to a few more “redux” sculpture pieces in the near future.
Commissions Open Again!
Just a quick update to say that commissions are currently open once again. I’ll still be building chocobos for charity in the meantime, but you know. I need to take breaks from one kind of madness in order to play with another kind of madness from time to time.
Children of War. Even close to a decade ago I was way too ambitious for my own good. More old sculptures “prettied up” and reinforced, this time with some accidental social commentary or something. They each have names and stories, and many additional images, all to be found on their gallery page.
Available as a set only.
