So this is a little late, but I was part of a custom toy show this past Friday. The paltform was Steve Talkowski's Sketchbot figure. I have been itching to do a little sculpting for a while now, so I figured I'd give it a go and start with something simple. I have kind of been obsessed with this whole woods theme in my art plus I figured since its a robot everyone is going to be doing these really techy customs. So with that in mind I turned Sketchbot in to a tree, ha-ha. Actually I think it was my girlfriends idea originally. I also wanted to put something inside to make the custom more interesting. I picked up one of Nathan Jurevicius's Paleda Owl wind-up toys. It was a little too big to fit inside of Sketchbot, so I disassembled the wind-up mechanism and took a hacksaw to the bottom of the toy to shorten it a bit. Then I painted it and inserted the figure inside of my custom. Anyways here's the finished product, hope you guys like it. Show is up until April 23rd at...
