Just Some More Pendants

 Here are just some in progress pics of some more things I made earlier this week. This time with a step by step procedure!

Here the pendants are with just paint. I like the shape and size of the small squid pendants but they have an annoying texture on them that takes a few layers of paint to cover.

The two spiders on the left are ones that were done in a previous batch, just to compare textures.

Also some bug pendants for a friend of mine. She's going to hook me up with some hissing cockroaches!

This is them after mixing and pouring the epoxy. The bubbles are normal and slowly pop away after an hour. Usually they end up nice and clear.

 But this time they didn't turn out clear. All of them have microscopic bubbles all over the place in the glaze. I don't know how this happened since the normal bubbled all popped and it was only a few hours after being clear that the small bubbles started appearing.

 This close up shows the detail better but still doesn't really show how obvious the bubbles are. The whole thing looks like it is covered with a light speckled layer of dust.

Oh well. Epoxy is usually easy to use but you do have to follow the instructions exactly. Good thing most of these will be going to friends!

Doodles of Bugs

Not much to talk about other than "hey here's some sketches I did in the last few days and yeah my style's been changing again. What the heck is up with that?"

Oh also this little swirly haired girl is one of my friend's characters we were just messing around with. We can't decide which little cheek design to use. I am leaning more towards the triangles myself. We might be doing a few comics together since both of us by ourselves are pretty bad at story telling.

What started out as a simple absent-minded 15 second doodle of some swirling curves quickly grew out of control and into this. Maybe later I will put a little more detail into the colors, but for now I like it how it is.

Spider Baby

So someone thought it would be a good idea to force me to make comics every week, and then I did. I personally have NEVER written or made comics before so this has been a bumpy road for me. So now I've got a little experiment comic thing updated every Monday called SpiderBaby on a little website called the SBboard. Nothing big, but it is mostly full of kids like me just trying to figure out what they want to do. You can now click that little icon on the side and it will send you there. Hooray. One less B&W thing on there.

Also because of this I will probably only update my blog on Fridays now. I feel like a chump advertizing that I will update three times a week but honestly I never have enough stuff done by those times to be worth announcing anything. So now there will be comics on Monday, and art on Fridays.
