G.A.W.D. (God Awful Weird Dudes!) Paxter

Here is a corner of my workshop/studio. A few days ago I finished sculpting a small figure I call Paxter. 

I formed him from Polymer clay. This was my first time using this kind of clay and I found I really enjoyed it.

Here are a few other characters I had made previously. Not really happy with any of them, but then again I'm not sure that I'm really happy with Paxter either.

I've been interested in casting for a couple years now. A week or two ago I broke down and bought a casting/molding kit. Making molds and casting my characters is very difficult for me. I've decided to start a reject box.

Here are some pics of the first Paxter that came out somewhat good. He still has many flaws, but he's my best reproduction so far. I went ahead and painted him and then fucked up two more casts.

I'm still sculpting much too big. This is hard and discouraging.

Buck O'Hare Repaints: Blinky & Al Negator

Since last summer I've been looking into getting a hold of the the Bucky O'Hare toy line from the early 90's. I vaguely remember the cartoon as a kid, but I never had any of the figures.  A few weeks back I gave in and have been seeking them out. Here are my first two repaints, Al Negator and **A.F.C. Blinky.
