A Merry Penguin Christmas and a Steampunk New Year!

Ok, so its not Christmas anymore. Not even close. But here follow some pics of a couple of things I made for Christmas.

So lets pretend.

Firstly I’m gonna point out the new section up there for Resin and Vinyl figures. Look, up there, no, ON the screen. Yep that’s the one. I’ll be posting pics of the resin and vinyl figures I’ve customised and sculpted in that section and eventually I’ll get an online shop sorted. Till then feel free to e-mail be about commissions.

Next up, this penguin model a guy commissioned me to make for his girlfriend. It’s based on a running in-joke between the couple and their friends that I’m not going to explain. But I hear it went down pretty well on Christmas day.

And lastly a Steampunk gun I made for my Dad (specifically requested by my Dad). I like Steampunk, but outside of that one time at a comic convention and fancy dress this is my first artistic foray into Steampunk. I modified an existing toy gun, but I wanted it to feel weighty and real and cold to the touch the way metal should be, so the toy was made from white metal and most of the parts I used were brass, steel and some glass.

I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out, and my dad seemed quite chuffed. I’m sure it won’t be my last attempt at Steampunk. Maybe next time something a bit bulkier. Like a hand cannon?

Anyway, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!!
