Crepuscular Monster Impatiently Waits for Sunset

Or, as I've been calling it, "Rage, Rage Against the Shining of the Light." Another new one I just finished this week.

This one has some details that are probably obscured by the thumbnail version, so click on the image to see it bigger.

Purple Makara

A Makara, for those of you who don't know, is an Indian river monster whose form amuses me and lends itself to feepiness.

What you see here is a drawing I finished recently, featuring another of my makara incarnations.

Striped Cat Snake

Not every feep is appreciating the cooler weather.

Hey, it might almost actually feel like fall today!

Baby Monster: "Girl"

I found a pair of frames in the discount bin: one says "Sweet Baby Boy" on it, the other says "Sweet Baby Girl." I, of course, could not resist this prompt. Here's "Sweet Baby Girl."

Tall Purple von Snoot

To be honest with you, I'm not sure whether this von Snoot is actually taller than your average von Snoot, or if they're like herons and can be all compact one minute and crazy long the next.

Coil Mollusc

What this skull needs is a betentacled critter living in it.

Halloween Snat

I hadn't deliberately set out to make a snat in Halloween colors, but I suppose it was inevitable. It may seem like cashing in on the upcoming holiday, but you must realize that for me, every day is Halloween.

Red & Black Tentacle Twist

Observe! This is the first new tentacle twist I've made in a couple of years. As you can tell by the archives here, I used to make them all the time, but then mysteeeeeeriously stopped.

Part of it was moving on to other things for awhile, but the main culprit was the clay. While Premo is better than regular Sculpey for the durability of delicate things like tentacles, it's also a great deal stickier in its raw state. So I'd try to make a tentacle twist, and the tentacles would keep sticking to each other, and would tear when I tried to pull them apart. Not acceptable! But this one is made with Kato Polyclay, which is also highly durable but not nearly as sticky, so I was able to position the tentacles at my leisure.

So now you know.

Purple Bat Necklace

Did a wee update to the Etsy store last night, which includes this bat necklace.

I haven't made too many bats in the past due to the fact that they're kind of a pain to make (I blame the wings). But I have made a discovery that helps cut down on the effort considerably, so hopefully the future shall be significantly more batty.

Also, this is the first batch of Feeps made with Kato Polyclay instead of Sculpey Premo.

Purple & Yellow Leviathan

I've been working on some new monsters the last couple of days, which I'm hoping to photograph today. I'm using a different clay this time around: Kato Polyclay instead of my usual Sculpey Premo. It's supposed to be extremely strong after firing, so we'll see if it turns out to be enough of a durability upgrade to switch over permanently.

Purple von Snoot

Uninterested in finding out what life is like for an amuse-bouche, this von Snoot opts to hang out far away from the lurking cat.

Conical Mollusc

This feep had heard that there was a cat about somewhere, but so far the coast seems clear ....

Snat and Cat

Instead of mucus, a snat glides along on a trail of badness.

Capped Red Cyclops

The feeps and I have returned! The cats have made their feelings known.

Treetop Monsters

I just finished this yesterday. I'm not actually 100% certain those are treetops. Originally I think the background stuff was going to be rocks or sea floor or something, but then I found an awesome frame that begged for a lot of green in the piece, so they're vaguely tree-ish now. Maybe moss-covered stones. That works, too.

I'm going to be out of town the rest of the week, so I shall resume the blog next Monday.

Tentacle VampFeep

Tentacle Vlad is uncertain what to make of this oddly fuzzy tentacle-like object.

Tropical Snoot Bird

Wow, so the Art Show "Closing" Party went really well last night. Thanks to everyone who came! If you missed it, the good news is that the show has been extended through September, so you still have a chance to check it out. And we're going to try to cycle some new stuff in, too, just to mix things up a bit.

Fire Dragon

For once, a dragon finds out what it feels like to be looked upon as a tasty snack.

Woke up to a lovely rainy morning. It's about time!

Black & White Cat vs. Blue Cat

The cat on the left has eaten a couple of feeps in her day, making the cat on the right something of a daredevil.

Also, just to remind you, the closing party for the ASG Art Show at the Hideout (617 Congress Ave. in Austin) is this Saturday, Sept. 4th, from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. It's downtown, right next to 6th Street, so it's a great pre-partytime stop for you. Come bask in the art!
