Absinthe visions

I've put my soul into this build. it took me several months to get the certain state of mind to put this thing together. This fella started as a humorous piece, but in the end it turned out to be really dramatic and sad. I see this character as a former impersonation of strength and power, but something has happened and he's only a shadow of his former self. He has some primitive technology to keep him going - external spine and wheels as legs. He drags himself trough the rough land. 

Anxious project I'd say. Not humorous anymore.





I've found it hard to start anything after a long break, but I've been maturing the thought of the new character who's joining the ramshackle forces of Merchant. Now I assume I have the right parts glued together, and the next step is to take some GS and fill the gaps.

I call him Lotus Hatcher.

Also here's a picture of my new more powerful lamp - it's a LED-rail with moving spots. As I've experienced, the color of the light is slightly more natural than my old lamp has. I use both of them at the same time to get awesome lightning conditions. I attached the LED-rail to a cymbal stand with some thick thread and voila!


How about other gentlemen of Brushes United? It's been a silent period of time, but as the nights are getting darker I assume our visions are getting brighter. What are you doing at the moment?

I challenge you you to construct a characteristic model around a collection of bitz you thought you'd never use - surprise yourselves!
