I unearthed this guy again. He's been here just a few times before.
His nick name might need to be Humpty Dumpty. Since the most recent post back in August, he has lost his legs...
Got a little 'hole-y'...
|No, I couldn't decide where I wanted that leg.|
Got put back together again...
Annnnnnd lost some limbs again...
|The other two should come off again too.|
I keep putting him down and picking him up and debating what I'm going to do with him. I might have mentioned it somewhere, but my final goal with him was to get him cast in resin. Thus why I continue to rip things off if I'm not happy with them. If there's going to be more than one of him, he's going to be as perfect as I can make him darn it!
However, I've hit a possible snag. When I started him a few years ago, I believed it to still be an acceptable practice to cast drastic customs. When I say drastic I'm talking about Orinocco and Calamity Jane levels of drastic, not todays accepted level of "drastic" which I wouldn't even think of casting. Cue snag - apparently most artists and people (according to Blab) will not purchase a resin that was cast from a custom.
Thus I'm torn. I finally believe that I have figured out the last big changes I have to make to my jumper and then I can move on to the detailing. But I am hesitant to go any further if I can't (shouldn't) cast him. I have trouble justifying all the work that still needs to be done just for him to be a OOAK custom.
So if I am going to go with the knowledge that people will not purchase a resin from a custom, I would need to restart from scratch. I might have less issues since I've made most of the posing mistakes with this body already (hopefully), but allllll that time I have invested in him currently bothers me. Again, I'm so close to detailing, do I really want to go back to nothing?
Bah. As you can see, I've been thinking about this much to much. I really want to work on him, but all of that holds me back.
Too much deep thinking this late at night considering how early I have to get up. Lighter post to follow, I promise!
