    Smiley

    I made this for my brother as a birthday present. He was a big fan Evil Ernie back in the day and I thought he might appreciate a nostalgic little trinket, plus I think me making this for him will annoy the hell out of my sister in law, due to her stern believe her husband has to "grow up".

    I have been having trouble with my last batch of super sculpy. I mixed in some black fimo that was a little past itís prime and very crumbly. It never completely mixed in and now when I bake the SS, little white circles appear below the surface. They are not air bubbles and have no texture but they make the unpainted sculpture look like crap.'

    I will post some painted pictures in a few days. C&C always welcome.

    Very Cool! It's a shame to only make one though. If you filled some of the undercuts, like the eyebrow and teeth, this would be great for a one-sided press mold. I bet you could sell a ton of them at trade shows and stuff. I know I'd buy one!

    hey, this thing is spot on EE!
    very well done, captured the attitude perfectly.
    would make a great pin!
    yeah, give your brother the painted original after you molded it.
    and then cast it by the hundreds.
    i'd take one too...

    ach, blast, there's copyrights and stuff.... stupid laws!

    thanks for you input guys, much appreciated. It did wonder through my mind that I could cast of a few of these bad boys but there is all that copyright crap and this piece has some rather nasty undercuts. I didnt really take molding into consideration when I made this.

    I almost have the paint job completed and will post finish pics shortly

    I am finished painting. I am not very experienced painter but I think this turned out pretty well. I was going for a bit gritty look but it doesn't translate well in the pictures. I have had an airbrush for about a year now and have not good opportunity to use it until now. I like the subtlety you can get with it. Anyway love to hear what you think. Thanks

    I love it! Don't know what else to say. I don't know the size of the piece but it looks big, therefore you don't need to force some shadows or lights in the piece.
