Yesterday’s photos are raw cat. Today’s photos show the gradual progression to cow.
I still have to add udders, a collar and cow bell and eyelashes. Then I have to tweak and sand it. I am trying to keep the sanding to a minimum. The Magic Sculpt dries like concrete. It’s amazing stuff.
I tweaked my original design by sculpting the entire cat instead of adding props like a leather collar, because I need to make the cow vandal proof. I also want the finished piece to still reflect the cat underneath so I am adding to the cat without taking the personality away.
Inktober ends today! And there was joy in Mudville.
Here is today’s Little Witch & friends plus all the ones from 10/22 to yesterday.
I followed the prompts this year and using them gave me ideas that I would not have thought of on my own. It gave me ideas for introducing new characters. I’ll have to use prompt generators more often.
This weekend I’ll be closing the studio to pack. John and I are moving to Florida. It’s a bittersweet move and one that was caused by a job reduction for John. It wasn’t planned but we sensed it was coming and prepared. We’ll miss some things here, but we are looking forward to new adventures. At least we had one more October here before we moved.
John and I have been very busy going through all of our belongings to reduce what we have, then putting it out for yard sales. It’s been taking some time and it pulls me away from my desk. I still create daily but I keep getting pulled away from the technology. Hence the lack of posts.
The Little Witch and her kitty have returned. They have been doing lots of things since last autumn. The Little Witch has been gardening and growing herbs and mushrooms. She’s been studying herbology to understand the healing and potion properties of plants. Kitty has been helping, usually by knocking over flower pots chasing wildlife and flipping pages in textbooks.
I mailed this out to my mom yesterday with a little story on the back and stuffed it in an envelope before I realized that I meant to take a photo of the back so I would remember the story. Oh well. Mom gets her own version of the story.
