Of Potatoes, Portals, Mardi Gras, and Random Things

So I got distracted.

I have 10 other dragons to make to finish my zodiac project and what do I do?

I make a teeny potato.


This is GLaDOS, a character from the games Portal and Portal 2. (The potato is hard to explain. It’s a very long story that make no sense if you haven’t played the games. I have developed a recent obsession with both games, and I highly recommend them. Definitely should be played in the proper order, of course.)

And these are some Portal earrings, also from the Portal and Portal 2 games. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal_%28video_game%29 ) ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal_2 )


I also made Mardi Gras the dragon instead of doing any zodiac critters.


Isn’t that little face just adorable? I love the way he came out. Funny enough, his body was actually constructed several days before I added the final details, and on the day I did that, it was Mardi Gras. And I had absolutely no clue that I had made him on the holiday. I just named him Mardi Gras because he reminded me of the colors that they often use in the celebration. The purple is a bit lighter in real life. Sadly, he doesn’t stand on his own without looking slightly messed up, so he’s going to be living on the base.

Another distraction was a recent custom order that I received. Gumby and Pokey! I am very happy with they way they came out.


Also, the rare and wonderful Poshtopuses made an appearance.

Also a teeny random hat, and Bandit, the mini dragon.



Distractions are sometimes REALLY interesting, it seems.

Maybe I’ll actually get back to my big project, eventually.

But for now I think I needed the random.
