The Better To Grab You With

Gave the Skull Witch a stick-fingered hand.

looks great! I wasn't sure about the bony things sticking out of her shoulders (in the last pic) but it looks fantastic...should have known better than to doubt your exquisite artistic sensibilities!

I like how you just took a store bought skull and turned it into a creepy masterpiece. Just wonderful!

(Maybe I should just send you my bucky torso and let you have your way with it....)

The hand took it to another level. Gonna look great with her cloak.

I really really appreciate that you are posting these progress pics of this witch. Its like a birth of a child and watching them grow....

Does this mean there might be a How To page in the future? I would even settle with a progress page...LOL

Perhaps... ; )

Coming along quite nicely! I echo Noah's desire for a "how to"! In fact, I'm game for such a demonstration for pretty much ANY of your creations!

Great job! You should maybe consider turning that arm into a marionett type of pupet arm. By the way is this the skull you use for groundbreakers? Because I am having a lot of trouble with finding a base for my groundbreakers' heads. This wraping-a-styrofoam-skull-in-tin-foil-and-macheing-it thing isn't working so well. It takes too long and it's a pain. Any suggestions? Anyone? Everyone.

My current groundbreakers have heads that started out as a mache coating on a plastic skull...I peel it off when it's dry and then re-build it to get corpse-like features. It's not the best detail when it comes off, but it's a good starting point and way better than starting from scratch.

I'd recommend a plastic/foam skull to anyone building a groundbreaker. Save the mache mold for later experiments. It can be very frustrating to work with a mold with limited features.
