WiP Wednesday 03/06/19

This week I finished up the robot gorilla I started a couple months back. Originally I had envisioned a desert setting but it morphed into more of a scrub/steppe sort of environment.

Exposure to the elements has stripped away whatever markings or decorations that may have once adorned it’s surface. Erasing all evidence to the identity of the builders of this strange machine or what use it was put to.

It seems likely that I will continue to fool around with the site so that should be fun.

That’s it for now.


WiP Wednesday

The store was out of the oil based ink I want for the subscriber prints. So that's going to take a little longer while I find another source.

Alright, let's put some ink on paper...

In the meantime I decided it had been too long since I printed anything. I had some paper left over and ended up with 10 sheets. I wanted to print some Robots since I hadn't actually pulled any since I did the final proof way back when. I had also been wanting to frame some of the Basalisks but can't find the stack of prints I had already made. So I did five of each.

The Robots came out mostly ok. I have 2 maybe three prints I feel good about. The Basalisk however - oh the Basalisk vexed me.

Out of ten pulls I ended up with only four usable prints.

I got one good print out of those. It's those big black areas, they're always a problem. Not enough pressure and it comes out light or, as you see, bits of grit raise the paper off the block and create white spots.

I think that's it for now.


WiP Wednesday - A bit of this and that

Behold my immaculately maintained work table!

You might have noticed that there was no Work In Progress Wednesday last week. That's because I was on vacation and pretty much just completely checked out. Now I'm back and feeling recharged.

Here are a few of the things I've been working on this week. I labeled a bunch of bottles, most of which were donated by my friend R, I started painting a toy dinosaur for a planned diorama, and then there's the subscriber prints I need to get back to.

I think that's it for now.
