Umaro and Mog Chibi Miniatures

When Super Dungeon Explore first hit the scene, I almost immediately wanted to start making characters from some of my favorite 16 bit JRPGs.

 For some reason, my favorite characters in Final Fantasy 6 were always the least central ones, but the chances that Sodapop were going to make a suitable Mog or Umaro mini was pretty low. So, when I saw that a local Blood Bowl commissioner had some Big Foot minis for sale, I had to jump at the chance to make an Umaro. I only had to adjust the hair a little and it was perfect.

 For Mog, I started out with a Giri creep from the Super Dungeon Goro set (I ended up with lots of extra Giri after the Forgotten King Kickstarter. Mog has always struck me as a particularly badass moogle and I felt like that needed to shine through.  Anyway, here they are:

Customizing Outfits for Wedding Cake Toppers

When I'm making custom wedding cake toppers, one of the things I always love to see are all of the beautiful dresses for me to match.

 Groom's clothing tends to be a little more similar to one another, but there are some grooms that have more varied attire.

 For example, I've made quite a lot of grooms in Dress Blues from every branch of the US military.


I've also done several grooms wearing kilts (matching the tartans is always a fun challenge).


And once in a while, I get something I've never done before. Here's an example of this- the couple went for wedding attire from times of old:

Gorm for Chibi Kingdom Death

When creating a full Chibi Kingdom Death set, I found that a number of the larger Kingdom Death monsters already had large heads (or head like areas). In some cases, no actual modifications were needed to turn them into Chibi Kingdom Death creatures.

When I'm creating chibi characters, I tend towards some of the more official color schemes. It helps the characters to be recognizable. However, with the unmodified monsters, it makes more sense to approach them with a brighter pallet (and go for chibi eyes).

 So, here is my Gorm- in strong purples. I painted the eyes similar to the way that I paint Chibi Zombie eyes. I also decided that the head stalk wasn't a great spot for a light source unless I wanted the mini to be mostly in darkness, so I opted for a second eye instead. Here he is- all ready to dismember cute little survivors.
