Progress on the 'Ragbot' inspired by one of the incredible robot illustrations by Ezerd for her upcoming travelling show.
I'm hoping to have majority of the sculpting finished by the end of today with just some minor touch-ups to do tomorrow. I still need to do a bit of sewing for the limbs and then tackle a headdress. I'm still turning it over in my head how I'm going to accomplish it and not make it too top heavy and throwing to balance off.
I have a few new pieces that I have been slaving away on this past month. They're a bit different and I am elated that I am experimenting. I've had a wealth of ideas over my period of repose that I am finally able to bring out into the tangible world.
I have been quite taken with unusual natural forms as of late. This current obsession caused me to purchase a most incredible fungi reference book. Slowly a doll heavily influenced by this fascinating kingdom has begun to emerge. She is still very much a work in progress, but her basic form has been fleshed out.
I am a little amazed that it has been so long since I posted last. I could have sworn it had only been a week or two. It is absolutely terrifying how time can get away from us.
Since my last post I have finished a new doll, my first doll that is not a resin cast since early 2013. It feels good to step away from the mimics for a bit.
After I finished the last touches today, I tried to take advantage of the perfect cloud covered day for photographs. Unfortunately it started to rain a bit after only a few minutes of me stepping outside. I was able to take a few shots before I had to retreat back inside. So, this will just have to be a sneak peek.
