had a request for this a long time ago, got about halfway done with it and got sidetracked so a few weeks back outta nowhere i finished it up to surprise my buddy, presented to him in the parking lot of a water theme park which explains the inner tube
so i guess card protectors serve no real purpose... they just kinda sit on your hand until you fold or call or whatever...
well anyway, a buddy of mine plays alot of poker / texas hold 'em... probably 3 - 5 nights outta the week. he was using a tiny bart simpson, like it came out of a machine for 50 cents or something, which wasn't bad or anything but i figured he might as well have something a little more unique
still having a few problems with the camera being kinda blurry but you get the idea. just fimo, sand, paint, BAM! hope ya like!
Where is Meatwad anyway!? I know for a fact you started a Meatwad project! Did it end up in limbo with the Marcus Figure and Ray's Figure? For the rest of you that think he has patience, your wrong he's just really anal retentive.
ahhh, the mache-wad, well, i need to figure out how lumpy to make him lol...and ummm, i think the marcus figure is down the drain, i have a nice hand out of it and for that i'm happy....the figure for ray was becoming extremely awkward so i've scrapped the bigger version ( save the head ) and have been figuring out how to rework it so the brain is somewhere else...possibly on the back...and make it a more managable size, and just remember, my anal retentiveness yielded you some jiggy magnets...jerk...heh
to everyone else thanks for all the comments! ( especially the ones about how patient i am )
the gopher...lol...yeah, only appeared in one episode - the girl who cried gnome, and all it does is dance for intruders...hahaha, probably my favorite small roll character from the series, alas...i don't think it turned out so good simply cause i have a piece of a paperclip coming through one of the feet to secure it to the base and i failed to make it long enough, good enough to keep him upright...not good enough to keep him from leaning, oh well, i'm pretty satisfied with it as a whole. thanks everyone for checkin it out!
one of the reasons i made this was to try out some blacklight paints...unfortunately at the time most of my "canvases" were scraps of thin cardboard from work so the yellow didn't turn out as good...eh, oh well
"it's just not zim's house without a yard", i remember thinking...
the gnomes & gopher are FIMO, blowfish is Sculpey, lawn is a styrofoam block w/ felt, fence is cardboard w/ crayon, the sidewalk just paper & crayon, and the flag i printed from an episode screencap with small aluminum tubing for the pole. so yeah, hope this is the right place to post this, hope ya like it!
