Got stuck with Boxhead so decided to make T and Eris still a WIP, Eris has her wires cut and bound but I need to epoxy and dress her, she is currently only a head – T needs finishing.
The idea was to make them look as similar to my comic doodles as poss, pen colour and fine liner edge like borderlands cosplay cell shading. I covered all the fabric for his outfit in latex and once dried just coloured him in, loving the Spectrum Noir pens they draw on tons of tings.
I even made him a backpack with his own T + Eris print using the MOO stickers I order with the comic doodles on. I know him, so I just made the outfit up on the fly and it was a happy unplanned process, I guess his like the doodles. His an armature doodled 🙂
Boxhead became a girl when I decided to not cut the eyelashes down, I need to add the wire to her collar to cover the neck, finish her shoes and fix fingers, she may become a he again. I’m putting her on pause and hoping once I finish making Eris I will have a clearer end goal. I’m still considering using her for the ABC book but there might be a better fit. Also decided not to write till NANOWRIMO and armature more. I’m thinking of making everyone in Alterity from my never finished novel, as being able to see them outside my head is a little bit of magic 🙂
It’s like she is oddly cute face on but catch her at an angle and she is oddly terrifying. I like the mix but she may not be ABC book ready. Boxhead is not a very clean make but intended to photograph and digitally edit images for picture book in post.
Been listening to some Joseph Campbell interviews, he makes my heart happy and my brain tingle, also Ozark is a bit special, Jason Bateman did good, enjoyed the rewatch even more, really like everyones character alignments. So Summer break spent making tings because… “What did you do as a child that made the hours pass like minutes? Herein lies the key to your earthly pursuits” ― Carl Jung
In other news, Nathan who stumbled across the ‘Lessa-fucking-Go’ Casinodaddy doodle of T and Eris, posted a link to the boys while they were streaming on Twitch and they saw, smiled and laughed at T’s ‘Full Degen’ cap. It was cool, I’m gonna message them and see if they want to use the image for their T-shirt site, just need to fix the lettering first.
Made me a little less shy about sharing doodles.
So I’ve made his/her armature, for a picture ABC book I wanted to make for my sisters twins, for Christmas. It’s weird because when I was little I was really upset by the four faced people in Never Ending Story. I don’t remember this but my mum must have told me at some point, I must have made a fuss and gotten upset. Boxhead is from an idea from a while ago based of a single image of an ice cream cone melting in someones back pocket, I guess working off the notion of trying to keep things you can’t. Turns out four faces still scare me and I like the odd but it is quite possible this little dude is too much for the picture book for Lexie and Cadence.
With no real idea of were to go next with this, I made Eris and T’s heads and have started their armatures for no real reason other than I enjoy the process, sitting at my workbench making them. Boxhead’s face was borrowed for them, so I guess its only fair they borrowed it back. Hoping to refine and get better at the process.
ITS BEEN A WHILE – Last evening the fabulous Kate T came over for her baptism by fire and introduction to make-up Club.
We had a vague idea about flash gels blue/red, a rack of wardrobe and a whole heap of wigs, Kate picked her outfit (Me (& Luke) insisted on the blonde wig) and she become foreign film post modern Femme fatale, well that’s how I see it. Planning and fabrications for the next one but it feels good to wear more make-up then a drag queen, throw feathers, wiggle sparklers and wake up to carnage in the kitchen, still with a full face of MU woops. I enjoyed strutting like a tart in front of the camera too, these are my fav of Kate.
