I'm planning on bringing two prints with me to SPX this year. This is the first one. It's Kane done in a total Ukiyo-e style. It's inspired from a panel in this comic, Tackle.
I've put in the order so hopefully they'll get here before the con. *crossing fingers* And I hope I have enough time to finish my second one! ACK!

My friend Chris (check out his comic unseenllc.com/sledgebunny/) asked for some art to throw up on some fliers for Katsucon 2011 and this is the thing I came up with, a giant Daruma robot.
This is kind of my play on the whole school boy controlling a giant robot super robot theme. Except instead of a little boy I substituted an awesome chick with green hair.
I think they live in the same universe as Great Kahuna Bot V. Someday, there will be comics or toys or both.
And of course, I snuck in Puppy Cow!

A bit of Gundam humor here. Char Aznable's Mobile Suit is an MS-06S Zaku II Command type which makes it three times as fast as a regular Zaku II. Okay, so it was three times funnier in my head.
I'm using a new mold which I didn't take any pictures of, but it's essentially a one-piece mold with the back cut out for demolding. This cuts down on sanding and filling, but I still have way too many bubbles. At least the face doesn't have any seams any more.
The white resin is easy to work with. Carving panel lines for the top of the head was fairly simple. The head fin and the backpack skeleton are made with plastic sheets. Instead of building the backpack first and then trying to fit it on the back, I just super glued the frame to the body. I'll be using more plastic card and my favorite mori mori putty to build up the rest of the backpack.
I've got to figure out what to do with the snout and the pipes and the mono eye, but this is a good start.
Not the best turns, I know, but this is to give some kind of idea of Puppy Cow's dimensions. Who knows, this might be helpful when it comes time to get some toys/plushes/horrible things made.

The completely adorable, yet udderly terrifying PUPPY COW!
I created this horrifying thing at ConnectiCon 2010. I think he'll be my next art toy after Frog Eats Monkey.
Witness the adorable terror of the PUPPY COW!
