New Custom Minis

Mini Spade-Skull Dunnys
Mini Totem Dunnys
Mini Flocked Spade-Skull Dunnys
Mini Mono Spade-Skull Dunny
Here's some new minis I've been working on over the past few months. Now these aren't commissions or for shows or anything like that- these were done just for fun. I like to work on minis while I'm working on bigger commissions, just to break it up a little bit. If I have someone on my commission list that wants a mini- it works out well. If not, then I just do them for myself. Since my big stuff can take months to finish, it's nice to spit out a little guy and get a little bit of instant gratification. Don't get me wrong, even my little guys can take weeks and weeks to finish- but that's usually because I'm only putting in a few minutes here and there. And usually with minis, I'm trying out ideas that I've been wanting to do for a long time. Take for instance what you have here. I've had flocking forever, and while I've flocked a few customs in the past, I really wanted to work on more. So that is how the two little flocked Spade-Skulls came to be. The totems- well, I always love working on those. But for minis I personally like the "duotone" style and have been creating a whole series of different colored ones. And of course, the regular Spade-Skull minis- these I just like making little variations, trying out new base colors and things. The red and blue ones both have a white pearlescent base coat, and the camo one is actually GID. And last but not least, there's a "mono" one- seems everybody has to have a mono colorway :) Fun stuff...
