Pipey Friends and More

floppybelly:

Here’s another stage of the work in progress, I might as well just call it The Spine at this point. Now it’s got the ELwires installed, and the spines are done for now. I may reinforce them later, but the basic shape is there.

Still left to do: segmented vertebrae on top of the ELwire layer, and crawly legs. Then all that’s left is to install it.


Here’s a work in progress that I’ve had for a long time- just the skull for about a year, and now I’m finally able to keep going on it thanks to the hospitality of Suzanne Gallagher, at the Roscoe Room. She’s letting me work in her studio! Here’s where I left off today after another five hours of work.
I didn’t start it out with the idea that I have now, but I think I’m going to make it into a xeno!spine sort of thing. With vertebrae and spinal protrusions and little crawly legs. And if I can find some ELwire, I’d like to work that in there too, maybe even hang it from that in a Hall Of Wires kind of way.
I have plans to exhibit it in the Mac Worthington gallery a few months from now. There’s still lots of work to do! View Larger

Here’s a little video for fun to show zip-lining Sly Cooper in action.


Here’s my last commission of Furry Fiesta, a big orange and black bat! I don’t remember the guy’s name right now, so it’ll just be pictures for now.

I got a little bold on this one and actually tried giving him the flipped-around legs that I remember observing on the bats in the zoo. If you hang him up, he gets all bouncy and flappy!


I finally got into the Artist Alley on sunday at Furry Fiesta, and this was the first commission I got- someone saw the Sly Cooper in my sample book, the one I made for Dev Madan, and wondered if I could make it again for them. Not wanting to get too repetitive, I put a spin on it and changed up the pose- Now it’s a zip-lining Sly Cooper!

There’s even video :3


I owed a Zodiac pipey to my mom for a long time, and finally got it done last night just in time for the new year. It’s the year of the Horse, which is what I am! (I’ll be 24 in June)

I had a lot of help from reference pictures and Rondie, and had some fun with the details in the horseshoes and the chinese letter for “horse” on the flank. (It’s not kanji if it’s not japanese, right?)

Mom is taking it to display at the new year’s banquet at her Tai Chi class tonight.


I streetpassed you the other day and wrote your site down (hi by the way). Anyway, how did you get all those puzzle pieces, I said gotdamn from Anonymous

Cool, I’m glad to see somebody paid attention to that! I go to a lot of conventions, and am lucky enough to have quite a few other students on my college campus who also carry their 3DSes around every day. Between all that, you rack up the puzzle pieces pretty quickly!

If you’ve got a tumblr account, I’d love to get to know you!
