In Celebration of street Fighters 25th Anniversary I will be releasing all my Street Fighter art work everyday for 2 weeks! YAY For Street Fighter!I remember growing up Marvel v.s. Capcom was where I first got introduced to the street fighter characters. Honestly Marvel Vs Capcom was one of my all time favorite games when I was younger! I was addicted ! The carefree times of childhood were the best!
Yes I drew Everything using the best drawing app I have ever found for the Ipad!
Its called sketch club for all you other up and coming artists! It only cost around 3 dollars but it really is worth it! I recorded the whole work in progress with sketch club and edited it with the imovie app. Imovie is actually the best video editing app I have encountered on the Ipad! It almost has all the same features as Windows Movie Maker!

So here’s the list. I hope I didn’t forget anything! Only 9 days Left!
So today I bought all the boxes and bags for the coins banks! I’m now ready to ship and load them once I make them into the perfect present boxes! I’m going to be making tissue paper bows for the final touch! I should be able to finish 90 present boxes in one day. It’s not very difficult especially since I’m using spray glue! Here are The pics of all the stuff I got today! Wasn’t that much considering I bought so much!
Also I took pictures of how I’m dressing the boxes with tissue paper! I’m really happy with how their coming out! I just need to get some black duck tape and more spray glue.
This Last thing here are stickers I got on Ebay from Hong Kong! I can’t find any small circle stickers
Like these anywhere! The only affordable place was from eBay! I’m still on the look out for some near where I live , but so far I have had no luck.
So I started off attempting to make the doll head with fabric but I decided to change my strategy and use polymer clay instead.
The block I had was a bit hard since its about a month old now. I ended up having to break it up and roll it out flat to make it a lot easier to mold and shape.
I made a small head shape with clay that never harden called Clay toons , you can find it at any Michaels.It was a practice run and didn’t come out as nice as the final version
One technique that I kept the same from the fabric doll head is how to make the nose.
Making the nose was the funnest part. I made a indentation in the middle of the head and put a pointy ball where I wanted the nose.
Then the fun part was making a thin sheet of clay with my rolling machine and putting it over the face like skin.
I stretched it over the whole face and attached the head to the body I’m working with which I also purchased at Michaels.
The last step was fixing the neck. When I’m done with this I have to work on her legs and arms then she’ll be all ready for the mold!!
So far so good. I love how her face came out but I still need to do some touch ups. Her head is exaggerated in size because I plan for my characters to be very anime styled.
Even though I didn’t get to finish this one today I did finish making the master for the future key chain molds. When I say master I mean the final sculpture I’ll be using for the mold.
When I first made his key chain character I accidentally used non hardening clay which can’t be used for mold making unless you by casting, and resin. It cost a lot so I
just did another one out of polymer clay because it hardens after baking it and it able to gets made into a mold faster and easier.
He came out really cute!!! For close ups you can see more in my Vlog for today.
So I just finished another concept design for the new kitty coin banks I’m going to be doing. I know I have a lot of pictures to still upload! I desperately need to invest in a good camera! I wonder how much they cost? I guess until them I’ll just have to use my iPad until then. Here’s the new sketches final pic!
So yes it finally came in mail. I love the quality! Blurb really is so crazy. I got to say laying out the pages using the templates takes awhile to learn. It took me all day to get the pictures right. I messed up three times before finally getting if perfect.
I can’t wait to share this book with my nephews and nieces. They are growing up so fast! Before I know it their going to be teenagers!
