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.

Mr. Man Beef Jerky corpse

This corpse that I'm currently working on is one that I want to show a great degree of decomposition and age. I decided to go with a very dark red and brown color scheme as well as using minimal skin covering for the bones and articulations. I also decided to leave a few spots opened and "ripped" looking so as to give the appearance of the flesh haing been rotted off as it dries out over time.

The first picture shows how the bucky looked just as I started to add "flesh" to it that will later be skinned over. This is minimal and just enough to give the appearance of certain facial features and such, but not a whole lot more.

As you can see in the later pictures (and it's still a bit wet, so it looks kinda glossy) the amount of color that I added has really given it that beef jerky kinda look. I didn't take any pics of the back, but it seems to have some of the best detail as far as the muscle structure and sinew sort of effect. The whole corpse is capable of being posed and is full size. It's just kinda a pain getting it on and off of the hook that it is suspended from while I'm working on it. :)

After the seal has completely cured, then he'll be ready for a night on the town!
