Tribal Cthulhu Wall Hanging.

This was one of those pieces I made more or less just for fun.I've done a few different "cultural Cthulhu" and wanted to try something a little different than just a sculpture that sits on a shelf. I thought about making an actual mask, but the size and proportions didn't feel right - so I settled on a flat piece, very simple in overall shape, that would just hang on the wall.

The final piece is made from Smooth-On's Free Form Air Epoxy, it's a 2 part dough. The mould is just a large flat piece, silicone of course, and the dough is just pressed into it. I had some experience doing this in the past and noticed that while it works really well, it's not always perfect. I wanted it to look like wood and be a little worn looking, so this method allows for a certain amount of random defects and deformities and once cure it actually feels like a dried chunk of wood.

Painting them is a bit of a pain in the ass, but I don't intend to make too many of them. This was done for myself, but it's a reusable mould, so I'm doing a very limited run of only 10 of them for online sale, at $40 each.I'm not making a huge profit off this piece, but it recoups the cost of making it in the first place and my time for making each one.

It's about 10"x10", weighs next to nothing and comes with a hanging wire already attached. I've only got 2 ready to go at the time I'm writing this, I'll probably make new ones early next year.

Sascha Rainne, Cagaaran Demon

The first of the shoots I did a couple week ago with Julie, we wanted to get a another shoot in besides the more elaborate Kalas Demon shoot I posted earlier, so I decided we might as well revisit the SpokesDemon character we did last year (which is now my logo) a character I named Sascha Rainne - the makeup for which is actually pretty simple, she stands out because of the horns and bright green hair mostly.

Kalas Demon photo shoot.

I only get to shoot with Julie once a year now it seems, since she lives in another country, so we definitely try to make the best of it. We did two shoots while she was home, one of which had four costume changes. This here is the result of the second shoot.
