Davemarkart's Owl and Toyer Qee

This guy is rocking his customs so fast that I sometimes totally miss customs from him. Both are experimental customs from Davemarkart, since he is doing normally an other style and he only painted the Qee.

"Owl Love You Forever"

"Wish I was Bulletproof.."

Free 3D Model from Shinbone Creative

3D maestro Scott Wetterschneider (one of the folks behind Shinbone Creative) was kind enough to give a great peek behind the curtain of how his process works by giving away a 3D model! This was done as a lesson but wouldn't look out of place on the shelf.  Grab it here in .obj and .ztl (if you don't have ZBrush, you should be able to use Sculptris or Blender - both free - to open the file).

Everyone with a genuine interest in making production quality toys should at least be conversant in some form of 3D modeling.  This isn't a "gloom and doom" prediction for traditional sculptors, it is a tool just like anything else.  I hope you will take my advice - stop worrying and love the bomb!

Motorbot is all geared up for the holidays!

If you want some holiday themed resin for yourself or a loved one, look no farther than the Deadbear Shop. Motorbot has created six different holiday themed pieces, including this Meaty Clause, which is his signature 4" Meathead with a yuletide upgrade. This guy is available in the painted version shown above, as well as unpainted red and crystal clear. The clear is also available with or without cookies in the stomach. 

My favorite is this Tree Demon, a 3.5" Krampus-style baddie cast in clear resin with a ton of green glitter and some details painted with eye-gouging Monster Kolor red. This is the first the Tree Demon has been back in the store for some time, and the first run sold out very quickly. This is a wicked looking piece that looks right on the shelf any time of year.

For even more fun, there are also some different holiday Meat Gnomes available. You can choose from crystal clear with red and green glitter, or if you enjoy a good mystery, order a limited one-off in a random color and start building yourself an army of these devious cretins! Again, these are re-sculpted versions of the classic Motorbot Meathead and I'm going to guess that they stand closer to 5" with those tall pointy hats they've got.

Most of these runs were limited to 5-10, so you'll want to jump on this, especially since they are only $20 each in the Deadbear Shop!

Bash is popping them out!

Recently started customizer Bash has made quite some customs last week. Have to say that this guy has a great plain style and I expect that he will show us loads of great customs in the near future. When you are interested in buying a custom from him, than shoot him a message here.

 "Meet Henry, he lives in Hydepark London and loves the big city. But there is one problem: Henry is the first turtle in the world that hates the rain. So he always takes his umbrella with him, even on the most sunny days... just in case!"
Henry the Turtle, 4 inch Munny

 "Andy is a rebel punk Gorilla for the Big Apple. He hates his parents, his job and the name "The big apple". So he took his banana with him and is now looking for a city that is called Bananasplit City"
Andy the Punk Gorilla, 4 inch Munny

"Harold always wanted to make a wooden helmet. But when he finally did make the helmet he found a bird, Betty, inside of it. Now Harold walks around with a bird, a nest and some eggs on his head..."
