Awesome Paper Action Figure

You got to see this!

Introducing Mark Patraw's paper action figure. The character is Katt from Breath of Fire 2. She was made using cardboard from a cereal box, newsprint, colored paper, a plastic broom bristle, Kleenex, wire twist ties, white/hot glue, and acrylic paint. This guy is GOOD! Did I mention she have 54 point of articulation? You can read about the details here.

You can also visit his art page at Mark's Art Page. Be sure to visit his Master Figure section.

Man, I got to try making something like this!

Until Then!

Jiji--Mascot Swing

OMG an update!

I hope this post will be the comeback of this blog. I've got most of my problems sorted out, and will hopefully fill this blog with the love that it needs.

Today I'm showing a mascot project for my friends at Diamante Studio. I've met them on a doujin event not long ago. They also will have their first manga publish soon by a known publisher here. Kudos to them!

I've sculpted Jiji, one of the characters from their new manga. He's supposed to be a sassy,smart-mouthed, all-round pain in the @ss, rickshaw pulling old penguin. I made him key-chain size, hence the name swing. He's made mostly of poly-putty and some paper clay, the eyebrow are epoxy putty wrapped on a copper wire. I do apologize for the crappy paint job -_-u. I'll do my best next time around.

Enjoy the photos.

Until then!

I'm not dead! ...yet

Hokay, first I'm sorry for not updating this blog like I promised.

The main reason for the absence of post is I'm on a tight deadline at the moment. Juggling between commisions, making figures, and updating this blog have gotten me swamped. Since my priority is to finish my commisions on time, the blog have to be sacrificed...for now. Don't worry though, I'll put my act together soon enough. I'm working on a new layout for the blog too.

Thanks you for reading, and I hope to see you again in the near future.

Until then!
