It was hotter then this earlier today. Feels hot af right now. Time to jump in the pool. Even when the sun is down it's still over 100. With face melt blow dryer breeze!
Well got half of the molds done for the 2 cactus horns for my cactus jackalope project. Just need to pour the other half. Once that's done I can cast a few and see how they fit the skull. Very exciting but very long process. I'm not a big fan of molding but it has its rewards.
I'm like: "gawd...I want to sculpt but this clay is hard as hell because it's been on my desk under AC all day. Where can I put it to soften it up?....inside the car dash!!!!" Easy trick if you live in Vegas... if you need a free oven wherever you are just stick it in the car during summer. It's like 150 degrees in that bitch! Woo! #vegas #vegassummer #youcouldfryaneggonthatpavement
My next project will be trying to make my see-through mini coop creep car come to life as a toy! Got the prototypes 3D printed. Now I'll probably junk mold the guts and cast it in wax then carve some more details. Then experiment with putting the guts inside the car mold and casting clear resin around it! Crazy! #3dprinting #3d #zbrush #sculpture #arttoy #creepcar #3dprinted #ultimaker2 #ultimaker2plus #maker
While I sculpt with my hands, my 3D printer sculpts with his robot arm. I love multitasking . Many many projects in the works. Sculpting, molding, 3D printing, casting... what a day!
Here I am... pouring silicon... molding my jackalope cactus skull. Should be finishing up molding in the next few days and I can cast a few. Very stressful but exciting part of the whole project.
My 5 year old son got to level 3 of Galaga the other day! Training him on the classics!
I want to do more stuff like this. Super fun. Here's a good still shot of the angler fish I did yesterday. Wraps a little bit here's my favorite part! #studio21tattoo
Super bad ass fun toxic angler fish I got to do today! Gotta just throw some background in there to make that lantern thing pop. #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #anglerfish
Did the other spider knee tattoo on my client today. The red skull spider is totally healed and looks great! Decided to make the rose spider blue and I love it. This was a really fun project. #tattoo #tattoos #studio21tattoo #kneetattoo
I can usually always spot my van in a parking lot. Never have to worry about forgetting where I parked. Unless it's a multi-level garage... then I'm screwed. Haha! #van #vannin #vanlife #vantasy
In progress of finishing the horn cactus sculpt for my jackalope cactus scull project. Almost ready to start molding.
Cactus horns are almost done for my jackalope cactus skull project. Then on to molding! My most unfavorite, nerve wrecking part! First time I've used apoxie sculpt to sculpt anything like this!
I think I'm done sculpting the rabbit skull for my jackalope cactus skull project. Next is the horns
It's a rough wip but got a really good start on my new sculpture. I'm finally starting the next cactus skull in the series. This one will be a jackalope cactus skull. Look back in my feed to see what the other ones looked like finished and imagine this one! The cactus antler horns will be next! #sculpture #monsterclay #biggsstudio #jackalope
Finally got around to experimenting with a DIY clay warmer oven. Just need to line it with foil and cut some small pieces of clay on a plate. Keeps the clay nice and warm up so I can just grab a piece and smoosh it on fast without having to kneed it with my hands. Great for starting a new piece and you want the clay to move as fast as your crazy little brain can imagine. I use hard ass monster clay. #monsterclay #sculpture
Did a fun Star Wars tattoo today. Tried to make it look 80s style. #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #starwars #starwarstattoo
Got a good healed pic of the wolf head I finished. Started planning out the background for this hell hound! So much fun doing this piece! Yes! #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #wolf #wolftattoo
Sketching dragons drinking coffee. Mmmmmm. Makes me want to drink some coffee... #decaffordragons #decaf4dragons #littleshopofmagiclv #littleshopofmagic #dragon #art #sketch #digitalart #ipadpro #procreateapp
Did another sketch on my iPad Pro. I'm still exploring Japanese demon art. It's a really fascinating subject. #procreate #procreateapp #ipadpro #sketch #digitalart #art
