New "Vacation Creations"!

Well as the weather here in New Hampshire has been very rainy since Sunday, it's given me some time to do some random creating. I'm going to post pics of the first new custom I made, something I'm calling a "Cohbrean" (Co-bree-en):

Cohbrean v1(Front)

Cohbrean v1(Angled Right Side)

Cohbrean v1(Angled Right Side)

This was my 1st attempt, but as it was a tad too thin, it stretched out while in the oven so he looks up more then directly in-front of him. Sunday night I worked on a 2nd Cohbrean which came out MUCH better:

Cohbrean v2 Front

Cohbrean v2 Posed

Cohbrean Right Side

Close-Up Angled View (Left Side)

Cohbrean v2 Close-Up Angled Right View

I'll probably make another version of this race during my vacation week, gotta try a few more tweaks on this one to get the sculpt just right. It's not bad now at all, much thicker then the 1st head and due to that additional thickness it didn't warp in the oven. The green-eyed version is now always looking up while this one is looking more forwards. Ah well, you live and learn. This body was built a month or so ago but I never got around to doing anything useful with it, but I always wanted a snake-like alien to inhabit it. I may make some custom-parts for these guys to give them a more unique look, stay tuned for more gang. 8-)

OH and go check out the Glyos Forum's "Custom Creations II" thread (CLICK HERE) to see another guy I made while on vacation. What's that one going to be? Well, he's a real pig and I'll leave it at that. ;-)

Vacation time once again!

Going off on my annual trip to New Hampshire with my family and now (for the 1st time) my fiancee Beth too. Should prove to be a interesting week, and I'll no doubt be able to get some work done while on the trip (sculpting and such). We should have internet access up there (cause in this day-and-age, where isn't there web access??) so I'll try to post some pics of what's going on up there, as well as what I'm working on.

Oh, side-note: the banner for the page has changed for this month and is the 3rd picture in the banner picture story I'd been doing for the last 3 months. Basically it shows some Prutarran soldiers on the look out for an un-known alien called "Arrowhead". He revealed himself to us, the audience, in the July banner and then made his move this month slicing a soldier in half. O_O I'll have some more shots of him this week odds are.

Stay tuned...
