Thanks, gents. : )

Love the lights within the eyes.

Brad said...

Amazing work (as always!) Can't wait to see more of them

Sam Kadi said...

Really cool Rot, those rule. Of course now I want to copy them for my haunt.

Michael said...

Incredible. How tall are they?

The Captain said...

I need to get off the computer and out in to the garage! Their faces and hands are awesome! Are the heads from scratch or did you add on a stalk on to the top of a funkin? Either way, I can't wait to see the Corn Witch!

Nev said...

awww yeeeeah

Rot said...

Thanks!

The heads are funkins with mache stems. The bodies are about four feet long and are going to be on tall posts buried within corn stalks - like they're growing out of them, or perched there. Not quite sure yet, but they'll be fused with stalks of corn. The Third Sentinel in the back will be up on the porch.


Thanks so much. : )

Are you f*****g kidding me?

A) I want to live in your head.

B) I just scrapped my haunt for this year. ;-)

The detail is superb. I love these.

Brilliant work as usual.

Rot said...

: D


Thanks, man.

ShellHawk said...

I guess I don't need to tell you these work on every level, right?

Well. They do.

HouseBloodthorn said...

I don't even have the words, brother. Simply brilliant work. I'm getting the feeling this may be your best year ever. Can't wait to see it all together.

Yet another doff of the cap.

JHMDF said...

Holy cow man... the cornstalk idea sounds really cool!

Grim said...

Those are great! Can't wait to see this years haunt, I'm sure it will be filled with lots of other surprises.

NecroBones said...

What a great photo!! This year is going to be great. LOVE these sentinels.

Otaku said...

Just superb, John. Creations like this make me want to retool my display into a more traditional setting with cornstalks and scarecrows. Beautiful!

Rot said...

Thanks again, guys.

REALLY appreciate it.
Makes me want to build and build.

Civ said...

Yup, that did it! Sometime in the summer every year I get that feeling. Something I see, smell or feel gets me into a Halloween vibe. Seeing these pics make me feel like planing or working on something. Man ....I haven't even been to the shore yet!

That is just great! Awesome work as always!

Rot, be as it may that I myself am currently giving an attempt at replicating a sentinal (faring well, actually) Would you mind telling me as to where to get the Pumpkins that you used for thier heads? I've searched all over eBay, Amazon, and Google looking for pumpkins, but I cannot find anything remotely similar to the ones you used. Would you kindly lend a hand?

Rot said...

Those were from the Funkin company.
Called "no. 9's"

Funkins.com has been unpredictable in what they carry.
