My First Super Hero/Heroine

This is Aya. She is from the Green Lantern Animated Series that was briefly on the Cartoon Network. It was an awesome show, but it only had one season. 

She is the Artificial Intelligence that helps Hal Jordan save the universe and all that jazz. She quickly became one of my favorite characters. I won't ruin it for you but her story is very good. It isn't ground breaking, but engaging and well done. 

I decided that she would be the perfect character for my first superhero Munny. I used a 4" doll. I had to cut off the ears first because they would stick out too far. They would have looked very odd and way too big for the head. I drew the face so that I could shape the helmet in the right place.

Busy Busy and Now my Hands Hurt...A Lot

Clay is tough on the hands. It doesn't always seem like it at the time, but later when you have stopped kneading and rolling and smoothing you realize, Damn my hands HURT! 

So that is where I am today. Three days no sculpting. I won't lie; it has been hard not to move on to the next project. But I will give my hands a full 7 days then back to work. For now I am just sketching.

This month I finished 7 droids and a custom order duck.  Most of my WIP pictures have either Dr. Pepper or Grey's Anatomy in the background, sometimes both. I THINK you can actually see a bit of blue from some scrubs there at the corner of the screen. 

I watch that show a lot. Mainly because I don't have to play attention too closely. I just tune in for the good bits. You may be wondering, 'Well why don't you listen to music  then?' 

Sometimes I do, but I tend to day dream to music, so I end up just sitting at my desk staring into space.
