:lol: Shoulda known that with them being clear figs that they would pretty much all end up at Domina's place. :lol:

As long as you keep posting pics when you get stuff Domina I won't mind getting scooped!

Mmmm.... Bishop... You make one in the black and orange and I may have to break open the bank again. :D Assuming I can get it past the wife. :roll:

Sorry for the lack of updates guys. But i hit some minor hurtles lately with some personal stuff.
And since im super new at this mold making stuff things are going slower than usual.

But i did just start my 3 inch series. Im probably going to make as many as i can before releasing them. first up is the clear glow in the dark. i also have a florescent violet that needs some sanding and clear coat.

Just give me some time. Im still learning but i wanna do this for everyone.

Looking solid. Do you have a black light? If not you might think of picking one up (the bulbs aren't all that pricey) if you are going to sell GiD figures. The glow pics will be all that more enticing for prospective customers.

looks great! now this is one I'd love to see GID mixed with glossy black parts too.

But do your thing and hope the personal stuff sorts itself out for the better

No black light but I'll do a long exposure with my caneta. That'll make the glow pop spot more when I'm ready to take better pictures.

Yup that'll help but a black light makes an unbelievable difference if you can get your hands on one. Regardless, that fig is looking good man!

Thank YOU so much! I'm so happy you like it. And don't think I forgot about everybody. More affordable mini glow rooks should be available this winter. I have a meeting next week to collaborate with another wonderful resin artist.

I will be making them also just at a slower pace. A lot has happened this year that slowed me down but I working my way back up.

A little update for everyone. Im sorry for making everyone wait so long but sometimes things aren't easy.

But some good news, Argonaut Resins is going to help me out. If you don't know who he is then you should check out his resin work. Im a big fan.

So hopefully they little guys should be out fairly soon. Starting off with some glow in the dark 3 inch rooks with opposing colors. I wanted these to be affordable compared to the bigger counterpart, I know times are rough and not everyone can afford to buy stuff with the holidays and all.

Then I gave Argonaut Resins the "OK" to do an exclusive set if he wants in his own style.

Ive also been drawing a few prints to go along with the set hopefully you guys like them...

This one is just a test for the board and will change to look more Print like i guess.
Image

And yes i copied Kaws but i always wanted to do this so i dont care. I like it.
Image

And of course stickers of these and stuff, but i was thinking about enamel pins. I set up a patreon for them but well see how that goes. I have no other idea.

But i hope you guys like the prints and im sorry to keep you waiting, I love doing art and i just want you guys to have some of it. And i cant thank everyone enough for their support.

Man, I knew MusicMan was gonna flip when I saw the stuff on Instagram. -grin-

I've been a huge fan of the Tuttz line by Argonauts Resins for a long time so to hear you are hooking up with them is awesome! One day I will get a Tuttz to go with my Rook.

Dunno if you can say but what colours of glow are you thinking of? Aside from MusicMan's green that is. That goes without saying. :D

I'm going to start with green of course. But I want to do blue and I really want to do a glowing pearl pink. And then I'll do random colors after.

Making it glow I think is the easiest part of the process. It's everything else that's tough. And getting the green color I want might be a little tricky also but I'm not worried.

Little update literally.

Little Rooks are on the way finally and they glow!!
They will stand 3 inches tall they still need a little work and some paint. Ill probably sell some blanks also for you customizers.
So far the majority is green glow maybe 2 blues. A bright Pink and maybe some more surprises.. I still have a few more to make but they are on their way!

i want to thank everyone for their patients and support. :D

Been watching the process on IG. Looking good! Glad to hear there will be some blanks available for folk. Mind you, with such low numbers I wonder how many will actually be customized.

So first batch is done. Painting these little guys were harder then i expected, so im leaving them as blanks to do what you please with them. I will be release more so dont think this is that last of them.. Larger ones will be coming after these as well..

They glow super bright except for the purple. it needs to be charged ALOT but you can faintly see the glow.
There are slight imperfections but i tried my best. And i might be making custom colors in the coming future.

I am looking at a release maybe next week . im just preparing the packaging and stuff. I think i will be selling them for $25 a piece with free shipping.
