Game Over

Here's the final version of the Duck Hunt trophy plaque for the I am 8-bit show. I'm not the most experienced sculptor in the world but I'm glad I went through the all the challenges that came with this project cuz i learned a whole lot of valuable lessons such as 1) don't forget to wear a mask next time when sanding resin. I'm still coughing up dust. 2) Don't look directly into a clogged airbrush tip when the compressor is plugged in. My left eye is now glittery pink. And 3) Stick to making posters. Those are a walk in the park compared to all the drilling, bending, sculpting, masking, sanding, priming, and painting involved with a 3D piece. My appreciation for sculptors has grown big time. All in all, I'm just glad I got through it and can't wait to do it again...with the help of a C&C machine!

Sorry I missed you while I was in town. My meetings were mainly in the Valley / N. Hollywood. Was in Pasadena on Wed.

Just returned home (east coast) after 3 weeks in San Diego & LA - so Comic-Con is a no-go for me.

Contact me when you have a chance as I'd love to include your work in future projects (TV & film - incl. 3D & giant screen, and interactive attractions).

{Hope to have you sign my Raiders print someday as well!}

Best wishes.

Thanks dudes! The compliments are much-appreciated.

Craig- I certainly hope so! I have an entire bucket of resin left so I'm sure I'll start on another one soon.

Jay- Thanks for the cheesy line call out. I should NEVER type something after working til 3 at night. Nothing makes sense! Don't worry, I fixed it.

Jamey, Xenos, and Hans - I'm just glad I could pull off something semi-respectable for your enjoyment. Thanks!
