Upper Description

I'm a woodworker and a leather artist/crafter. Photography and astronomy are my passions.

I'm descended from the Shawnee Chief Cornstalk who was killed in 1777.

I am also of Scots-Irish descent and VERY proud of my heritage and my culture. I do not apologize for my culture, nor am I "politically correct", and do not tolerate others who think that it is a necessity to be so.

I make my own friends

So this is just an update, as requested by a couple of my friends, to show the progress of my latest "construction" project, in which I made a friend whose name is Eddie.

The base of the head is a urethane cast from a sculpture, and the pics are showing the almost finished product with some of the sculpting medium still a bit wet and unsanded before the final painting is done.
The piece of paper that is sticking out from under the chin is actually just to hold the jaw in place while the epoxy sets up inside, as I have not installed any of the spring mechanisms for the mechanics yet. And, if you haven't already guessed, this is the head for a ventriloquist figure.

Here is another view from the side with the trapdoor not yet installed in the back.

And now for some of the internal mechanics that I constructed in order to hold it all in place.

And finally, the realistic eyes (what usually creeps people out about ventriloquist figures) as well as a closer view of the mouth (which I have already painted).
