In school, I always teach a unit on Baroque art (following the Renaissance unit for chronology of course). Even though I've taught this lesson a bunch of times, I really looked at the tools the artists uses to convey emotion and storytelling and wanted to bring some of that into my own pieces. It's a bit odd to have Bernini and My Little Pony finding some common ground, yet here we are. 

I spent my spring break mostly sculpting and binge watching Young Justice, so I have a bunch of new pieces to paint. I was trying for some more expressive, character driven sculpts with greater diversity of expression and movement, hopefully I was able to capture a little bit of that.

A remake of an earlier piece that sold and I never took pics. I always loved this sweater/bow tie combo he sports in that ep. This one is the first piece for Bronycon!

Light Up Luna by CadmiumCrab
Light Up Luna
It's a terrible picture I know, but currently it's the only one I have and I'm too proud of her not to share. This is a rearing Luna with a light up horn controlled by a switch in the base. I did all the wiring myself. 

Luna is quite tall, standing around 9 inches with the base. Her horn is made of apoxie sculpt with a blue LED light. The rest of her is made of super sculpey over a wire and foil armature, painted with acrylics and sealed with matte spray. These are certainly a challenge to make but I'm hoping to get more completed very soon.

I've been ignoring this space for too long, so my New Years resolution was to get off my ass and start submitting more art and being active in the DA community like back in the day. One journal entry a week from now on and more art for your eyes. 

In in this interim, I've been really working on expanding the types of sculptures I make and better incorporating light up elements into the pieces. Thus far it's been a fun but challenging process. Personally, I've changed jobs again and am teaching middle school art again while also teaching nights and weekends at a BYOB paint studio. I pretty much work 7 days a week, so it's been difficult finding time for my own art.

I apologize for all the notes, notifications, and messages that have fallen by the wayside. I'll be doing my best to get back to everyone. 
Animal Crossing Wedding Cake Toppers by CadmiumCrab
Animal Crossing Wedding Cake Toppers
Some friends wanted something special for their wedding and I was happy to oblige! Reese and Cyrus are all decked out in their finest wedding aprons and have closed shop for the day.

These two stands about 5-6 inches high and are made of super sculpey over a foil armature, painted with acrylics, and sealed with matte acrylic spray.

Hello to anyone who cares enough to read this and thanks for stumbling upon my little piece of the internet!

I'm mainly a traditional fine artist, well versed in a wide variety of mediums (oil paint, watercolor, acrylic, printmaking, traditional photography, stained glass, mosaic, wood carving, sculpting, etc). I'm also a lifelong crafter working mainly in clay and some crocheting. I'm also starting to learn needlefelting, because I obviously don't have enough to occupy my time.

I also have a group, Dork Out With Your Spork Out (dorkoutsporkout.deviantart.com…). My friend Carrie and I started a small nerd themed arts and crafts business. If you want to see us in person (because really, who would miss such an opportunity?), that's how we represent ourselves when we go to conventions and such.
