Wondering while wandering westward
Last week i was commissioned to make a custom 4in. action figure of this dudes D&D character (Lawful Good Paladin). Well... long story short, the guy canceled the order when i was already more than halfway done.
Ultimately i decided to salvage the work and turn it into something else.

There is still quite a bit of work to be done on it, but i'm pretty happy with the new direction and how it is turning out so far.
(Ignore the toothpicks and bolts in its legs, those are just temporary place-holder joints)

Materials used: leather, wood, copper, brass, aluminum, tin, gel superglue, j-b weld, acrylic paint, selenious and fluoboric acid (for blackening the aluminum), gold leaf, Dental floss, and a stone skull bead.

Points of articulation: neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands (mit-style), hips, knees, ankles, and the balls of the feet

Other info:
The chestplate is hollow (secret stash spot)
Hands, arms, legs, and feet are carved from recycled leather (layered with adhesives)

Okay so imagine a band comprised of a snail, a dragon, a doggo, and a ratto called Crackhouse Crevice. You can catch the free show on an eastbound IM from Yuma.
@dumpsternavel will be making snacks with some tuna from a pouch and the crumbs of a 10 piece chicken nugget bag.
Be there or be square.
Yeah not being on the road right now is kind of a bummer, but actually having the space for a kit again is really getting that serotonin goin'

Holy shit I missed playing drums
Gat dammit Yuma, and yer sparse rideables!!
Still broke as a joke in Morocco, but got a job as a director of a school, so hopefully that real adult money will start rollin in soon. There's a rainbow gathering in the desert at the end of next month. I want to go, but I need to start working and this school opens next month.

Found a good home for the beautiful cat and the boyfriend was not so nice, so it's another fresh start for me.

Out here tryin to keep it real

Best of luck and happy travels

Hey thanks for the recent uploads to the library, looks like useful stuff!
Nearly done with the electrical system of the van. 170Ah Lithium ion, 2/4K inverter, 400 watt of solar, 40A MPPT controller. Should be up and running (or explode) this weekend.

After that I have to finish the primary work table, which will be the last big piece of the build.
