Bottle Cap Monster NECKLACES!
I finally managed to find a few spare hours last night to sit down and paint again! Man, I hate it when I go so long without doing artwork, it's almost like a vitamin deficiency or something, I can feel it gnawing on me inside when I am not doing enough creative work!
In an attempt to make my crazy little Bottle Cap Monsters a bit more practical, I decided to try creating a Bottle Cap Monster Necklace. This is the premier BCM necklace, with good old Jack Skellington- this one was by request for my good friend Travis Jones. Travis is a serious collector of Nightmare Before Christmas stuff, and he has been subltly hinting for a long time that he wanted a Jack Skellington BCM, so at long last I sat down and created one for him.
Painting Jack was actually tougher than I anticipated- he looks deceptively simple to paint, but there is a lot of stuff going on that makes it hard to make him look right. It was a fun challenge, and I enjoyed the process. More of these to come soon!
