Spiders for a Frog

Have you heard about the Davis Graveyard Spiderfest 2010?

Of course you have.  But I'll summarize just in case...
Chris Davis (the Frog Queen) of the Davis Graveyard (yes, the Davis Graveyard) wants YOU to make a spider to hang in their tree for this year's haunt.  So head on over and learn all about it.

I'm basically done with my contribution as of today.
What the heck? Where are his legs?!

Well, going on the assumption that the Davises are handy with a glue gun, I'm shipping it with detached appendages so he fits in a smaller box.  Here's what it will be like with them:

Okay?  Everybody happy now?  Good.  Progress pics below.

When I got to covering the armature, I ended up building up a ribcage type thing to give the rear end more structure.

There's a little Tim Burton and a little Stolloween in there... subconscious inspiration?

Painted Skins

Ready to haunt other graveyards and laboratories across the globe...




I like the subtle differences between each paint job.

Scourge's Skull Shoppe

I just received my first Skull Shoppe skull in the mail. Even though I bought a "graveyard" casting with minor imperfections, this skull (the HSMM) is absolutely incredible. If you think Bucky and Lindberg skulls are cool, prepare to have your mind blown. You have no idea what you're missing until you get one of these in your hands.

To top it off, Scourge has fantastic customer service.  I'm sure I'll be buying more soon.

Now like I said, this was an imperfect test casting of the skull which Scourge had already colored.  I bought an uncolored jaw to go with it and got to do a wash with watered down acrylic craft paints to match the pieces.  It's not an exact match, but it's pretty darn close.  I'm pleased.
