So finally learning how to post videos of me models onto my website. Now onto my continuing challenge to make a store whence in you may buy said models as I get them molded and cast, I am sharpening all my learning curves, and am slapping buttons and stuffing my brain full of the knowledge, listen to it fizz!

So after a number of months not keeping this up I am stuffing this blog full of my learning adventures. Bear with me as I am not sure how successful this is going to be but I am going to attempt to put up the videos of me showing all of youse how to take an idea and make it into a resin cast figure, starting wtih a sketch, then on to the 3D modeling of the sketch, then 3D printing the model, making a mold box for the model, pouring a silicone mold of it and finally pourng the resin into the modl to make a statue.

WHEW! I need a nap just from writing all that.

Now I have to figure out how to add videos into this blog, otherwise they will end up in my 3D models video folder, but let's see if I can break the internet first.

Well, here we are again, climbing out of the smoking ruins of a particularly bad year, and watching what had been birthed into being lumbering off making the sound of cats in boiling water. But in the midst of uncertainty all we can do is K.B.O. according to Winston Churchill. So a few coats of paint, modifying my gallery page, and voila! You can barely see the bloodstains, and take this for the swelling. Here's hoping this art beast keeps rolling, mold making is now a thing, though still a learning process, but we'll see if 2017 can be the year for me bro and I to make Brothers Grin (Crafted Amusements for all Fancies!) a reality. and have mind vomit flying off in all directions!

And remember, the shortest distance between two points is a wormhole, and a doughnut with no hole is a danish.

Well, I am pretty horrible about keeping this blog up to date, I still post pretty much everything on my Facebook page. I think it will be my New Year's resolution to make sure everything I do from now on comes from here and just link it from my Facebook page, ah, social media, such a great way to not keep organized.

So I am continuing the modeling and printing thing, using new techniques in Zbrush and getting more confident with them. I have also added KeyShot for Zbrush and now my models look amazing rendered in it, so of course now I have to go back and spruce up my portfolio, which of course brings us back to me not dealing with this as my primary site.

And I have added a book cover to me portfolio. My longest time friend Jason Moffatt has come up with a snazzy little tale called, "The Clean Up Crew" full of action and monsters and splosions, and can be found as a Kindle book on Amazon, rub your eyeballs on it!

So as this is a notice of me hoping to be more active here, and getting my crap together into one big steaming pile, I wll get organized!

Well, I'm back to post up on here after many months of LIFE sitting on my head and crushing it, so here's news from the bowels of newsy things.

The Wahooni continues to shudder and roll along, like unto a overloaded cart making its trek around a sliver of road on a high mountain, as many of our dreams do. I have posted up some of the new models I have created during the summer and into fall, I hope you like 'em. Been re-tooling the page a bit also, trying to get it to tuck in its shirt and comb its hair, so professional is my look. In the ensuing months I hope to have some resin casting done and a few more molds, just have to catch a few pots o' gold or roll a leprechaun or two (oddly enough stores don't take bricks and fish as payment, who knew?)

So look to the future young granulates, for it is sure to be full of whatever the heck falls out of me head, which right now is the occasional rivet or two from me creaking skull plates......
