Just a quick drive by tonight...I really didn't want to post anything on this one till it was done. Lately, I have only had a short time after work to play on this guy. As you can see, I'm still blocking stuff in on it...I then have to go back and fix undercuts, smooth, slice it up, etc, etc. I fear I might need to take a week off at the 9 to 5 before Oasis in order to catch up...that sounds fun! Anyway, I wanted to thank all you guys - LLT, Sam, Master Squids, Perry, Bai, Grog, Clarita, Mike...Thank you for bouncing in here. You all keep me motivated and headed into that studio at nights when I come home tired.

Teaks, I really wanted to speak to you in this post. Please don't feel like you have to give up on your drum mug idea using this museum image as a starting point...this is not my image. I'm sure that your rendition of it and mine will be totally different from each other. Like all the artists before me who have used this image as a jumping point, the only thing that has made it "original" in each of these works is the personal choice in design changes that each artist has brought to the table. If you take a look at the picture below you can see many changes on mine...first, I have shortened the work and thrown the proportions off to the original in the photo image. I think this will help make it a better drinking vessel...not so tall - not so narrow. I am also making the carved line work deeper and somewhat different in areas as I want the glaze I'm thinking about using to look purdy in the recessed areas...There are many more things I am going to change from the original image in order to make it more my own and in my style. So don't pull your mug out of your fish bowl of ideas yet. I would love to see what you come up with. Keep on slinging that mud brother teaks.



Good night all.

Evening peoples...

Hey, I set the drum aside this weekend and started sculpting on a new Cobra mug oil master. I am hoping to run 25 of both the drum and the snake before I smash the molds. I have to start my 2nd round of traveling for the man soon, but I think I can pull these runs off (or most of them) for Oasis.

Anyway, I am hoping to get a little feedback from some of you TC muggers out there...I am trying to make this cobra a little more like the menu image than snakes I have done in the past. Of course, I haven't textured this guy yet. Anyway, the image on the menu is a little confusing to me, and (as you all know) there is no found cobra mug to view...all I have is this image. The image appears to me to have a little bulge where the hood of a cobra might be, except it is not rendered well, or shaded correctly? I'm wondering about putting a hood on my version of the cobra with a little cobra scull on the back like a king cobra would have...what say you? Yay or nay? Anything else I should change on this guy before I move into final on it and finish the head and the reat of the detailing? Speak up...what am I not seeing that you would like to?

Thanks for your help you guys...

I vote for the hood, it's what makes a cobra a cobra. But Jonesy has a point, a 427 under the hood sure don't hurt!

Oh babalu you're so cool the greatest #1 best master sculpting mug space hippy nice guy and I love how you turn mud into gold every time!

With that...

The only thing my eye doesn't like is the bulk of the hood:


To me, it looks like the snake on the mug is in a relaxed state, like this guy:


Once again, to me, it looks like the one you made is in a more excited state like this guy:


I still love you, but...
maybe circumcize the hood a little on the snake?


That's what she said!

Buzzy Out!

Babalu, your on the right track man, it looks good. The menu image looks like
he just dropped a mouse back. I think Buzzys right about the attitude though, you got too
crawl inside cobras mind and check his mood. Whether you scale him back or not
It will look great. Hope I can snake one at Oasissssssss!

Hood Hood Hood!

Whichever direction you decide to take it, Babalu, make sure your design is mold-friendy. (nudge nudge, wink wink)

Quick post before heading off to the grind this morning.

Thank you folks for coming on and responding on the hood no hood question...I really have been torn on what to do with it. And a HUGE thanks for you upbeat words all...they really do keep a fella motivated.

Buzzy - I'm tempted to make him a "limp" cobra just because of all the fancy things you said about me, however, to solve the problem, I think I'll just finish him out with the "hard hood on" and see what he looks like done. The great thing about using this oil clay is that I can go back and change stuff on a whim. So limp cobra is not out of the picture yet. Those snake pictures are some scary stuff - I hate snakes!!

Sir B - I'm trying, I'm trying...get your boss face on...I'm almost ready for you to come over and give me a hard once over on them

Yesterday I threw together a little metal base to use as an armature for a 3rd mug. I thought I should throw at least one design in the lot that is really my own. I've added clay to it and have started the big carve...hummm, whats it gonna be? More soon!
