So, other than drawing and painting I have begun to persue again my interests in making things. I have always had an interest in making models/sculptures and I have the items to do them.. I will be building more of my turtles over the xmas period hopefully and have been toying around with some better bases.. This is one of those experiments which I am part way through thanks to the inspiration of Ricco who posted this cool creation and then kindly showed me some of the WIP pics.
Mine is made with ping pongs to get the rounded head and various other items .. it is still to be finished and painted and I hope to put an led in the back area.. but its been alot of fun to make and experiment with the tools. And speaking of tools I bit the bullet and brought some tools which will help with making the models how I want and various other things I do 😀 They seem to me to have use in everyhing.. if i wanted to add dimensional parts to a painting/work, or use wax shavings to get layers of color etc.. I now have those options. So woot! Now all I need is a mini anvil and I think that is all i can justify getting 😛
Part of this bot has had skin / biological matter attached to repair something that broke.. perhaps in the middle of a war it had to be repaired.. I think I have a fascination with robots and human interfacing lately.
Other than that I am spending time making gifts for my niece and nephew, my nephew will be getting the next turtle I make for his birthday so he will be happy with that and the turtle poster which I am framing for his bedroom 🙂 And if you haven’t seen ‘How Shatner Changed the World’ take a peek at it 😀
