Tell the little fire golem to suck up all of the fire in Peacewood and become a MEGA GOLEM. Then singe Petunia's clothes off.
Speak up, I can't hear you.


In other news, in my spare time when I was tired of drawing, I've been working on bringing Duncan to the third dimension!

My first time working with Sculpey, learning as I go. It's SO HARD to keep his massive head balanced properly :lol

Make a casting of that and mold them!!

Way back when I used to use Sulpey, I often found it necessary to build a wire framework to hold standing figures or unbalanced characters. It didn't need to be to fancy, simple copper wire twisted into a rough semblance of the sculpture worked wonders.
He has a wire armature actually, but it's apparently not strong enough to support his head properly.It's my first attempt, rookie mistakes!  Next thing I make will be reinforced a little better

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Given the time of year, Heat Miser seems appropriate.

It would be easier to pick one if you guys could post on the reddit thread and upvote your favorites, just sayin' :P

I think Zard is winning at this point though

Thanks, and haha no problem. I figure a lot of people in this thread are the same way.

Sorry if I'm pushing the Reddit thing a bit too hard, I just really want to get Duncan out to a wider audience, you know? Reddit is off to a slow start, but I'm hoping after a couple chapters it will pick up some momentum.

No, that's totally cool.  You just have to "train" us (like a fire gollum!) to get us in the habit.

If you go with Vlasto, then after he saves Peacewood, the residents could honor him by naming it Vlasto Day. That would give a whole new meaning to Vlasto Day around here.
