More mache was done today.




So the question is do any of these have anything to do with my tombstone?
hmmm

Otaku The small skulls at the bottom of the boomer skull were inspired by your mache skull

Anyone else here actively working on props. Or is it just me. Come on people post pics

Way to go, Krough.
The contest is only an infant and you are already inspired by someon else's tombstone concept! :rolleyes:

I'm surprised everyone is showing their ideas. Revealing your ideas too early may lead to this sort of thing.

I think thats because the contest is about sharing ideas primarily. And winning is secondary. I posted my stumpy entry on feb 25th, more than a month before the deadline. I have told everyone (in chat that is) what I am building for the tombstone contest and no it doesnt include any of the items in the above images.

Are you entering the contest Bram?

Well, unfortunatly after sitting empty for six years the lot next to me has sold. The trees have been cut and the lot cleaned up. Soooo, all those nights of dreaming and planning my haunted cemetary are gone. No undertakers house with the skull walls, no pond with fog rolling across it, no ghoul dropping down on unsuspecting guest, no talking greeter skelleton, etc.
So now back to the drawing board. First weekend off in a month and my wife wasn't to happy with the thought of me leaving the family and going to the junkyard to get a wiper motor for my FCG platform, my 6 year old daughter had a friend over so I couldn't bring out the bucky in the front room and start macheing (is that a word?), to scary for guests. Did cut out tombstone design and get a feel for how that is going to work out while everyone napped. So all is not lost. Will post pics when I start my Bucky though Krough.
P.S. Is it wrong to work on Halloween on Easter? :zombie:

My wife hasn't been too excited about the ammonia smell of me slowly making a latex skull mold.

On April 8th, the Rocky Mountain Gathering group got together and buld peekaboo skeleton mechanisms. If anyone wants more info on how to build one, I can take some pictures of the one I built. Here's a dark one I did at the mini-gathering with my pda.

most of my work on the tombstone is still on paper or mental imagry ( which by the way always looks the way you want it to).I totally agree with krough. This contest should be about the sharing of ideas not the prize or saying "I'm first and your second" If seeing somebody elses stuff gives you the inspiration to do something, simular or not, thats great. At least you are trying to make something and may fine a better way in the process.
And yes darryl, working on halloween stuff on easter is wrong and you will be going to hell for it. But don't feel bad. The rest of use have been waiting for you to arrive.

Well lucky for me I was way to busy with the family to even think about halloween on Easter.
But the ? is, who's bringing the marshmellows and who's bringing the sticks?

Yeah Krypt. Its my own version of dry brushing.
Basically after the base coats are dry, I will do 2 coats of dry brushing in different colors. You get a little bit of paint on the brush and then wipe the excess off on a paper towel until the brush is nearly dry and then lightly drag the brush acoss the surface of the prop. Usually works better with lighter color dry brushing on a dark base coat. Try it its easy, and it really brings out texture and detail

Nice pics, krough! I went out to try to find the long, stringy moss that I keep picturing hanging from my grave marker entry, but so far no luck. Everything at Michael's is too cheerful and flowery this time of year. I may have to make a drive up to the hills to find what I need.

Those yellow floods make your pics look ...familiar....

Like some other site, I can't remember the name...hmmmm...

Well it'll come to me.:p
Oh that was me. Here is a pic


If you are thinking of some other site, remember some people just use photo editing to change colors. Im not this advanced:D . I actually use the colored floods and not some fancy photoshop filter
