Happy last Monday of June peoples!!!

Wowzers.....can ya believe it's the last Monday of June? I feel as though I've been caught up in a time warp that's on the fast track. To where? Not sure....but I do so love an adventure. ^_^

I've not been doing to much except working and visiting with the vampire den here of late. (that's the lab peoples, for those that didn't know) I don't normally ask and I won't go into details but a few healing thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated if you could. Thank ya kindly!!!

I did work on the June EWWL (go visit if you aren't familiar with this AWEmazing group of artist. Blog / Facebook pages) vintage horror character challenge some this weekend. I would love to work on it before I leave for work in the mornings but I'm afraid I'll let the time slip up on me. OH HECK FIRE....I know I would let it slip up. BAHAHA!!! I can just see the expression on the bossman's face when I say that I'm late because I was "playing" with dolls.

If you are new to sitting here under the old Southern ooak tree then let me explain what character I picked for this challenge. I chose Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for my piece. I have always been fascinated by that story and it's one of the reasons that I started to follow a path into psychology. One day I want to go and finish and get my degree. I'm wacky enough to be my own case study...hehehe!!  Now...what was I talking about? Oh yes....Dr J and Mr H. Since the story is the tale of "split personality" I didn't want to make two separate men. I'm making one man with a different front and back. Now in planning this piece I must admit that it has caused me to really have to snatch my muse up by her wings to come up with how to do the arms and feet. I decided to do the arms with one in front of the character and one behind the character. OR would that be one behind the character and one in front of the character? HAHA!! Arms decided upon and now for the feet. That one my peoples took some time in figuring out how one set of feet would work for this piece. I stood every which away trying to figure out what would look best and even had the Chazman posing for me some. I finally decided on a ballet position....the first position....which is where the feet are turned outwards. I think it will work. Hopefully it will work!!!

Here's some WIP images of where I am at the moment.

Love making hands. I made them both be lefties. No, it wasn't a mistake. There's a reason to my madness......I think. 

I did the feet as just a basic foot pattern since I'm going to be making the leather boots for him umm them. 
Him/them was so excited about finally getting baked that they slide onto the glass yelling "Yeah baby". 
Okay...not really but I think that's what it looks like. Bahahahahaha!!!

Dr. Jekyll side. Got the legs wrapped to fill them out and working on his underpants now. 

Mr. Hyde side. See why I made two left hands now? So that it looks as though the character has his other arm behind him. 

I'm planning on working on him/them when I get home from work this afternoon. I like the part I'm getting into now and that's making the costuming. Victorian ruffled shirt along with scruffy open shirt. Interesting, eh?

Until next time..................



  1. That is brilliant about the positions of the arms and feet like that. NICE. Now, just WHO precisely came up with that? YOU, or your little muse? Heheheheheheeeeeeee! Love the pics! He's, er. .. um hims looking good!
