Katsucon 2015 AA Setup by CadmiumCrab
Katsucon 2015 AA Setup
Here's our table setup from this year's Katsucon. We got 1 1/2 tables instead of 1, so we had 9 feet to spread out on. 

Merch-wise, the baby Groots on the table were gone almost immediately. They were definitely our hot item, so I'll be sure to have plenty more for our upcoming cons. 

If you stopped by to see us, thank you! Katsucon is one of our favorite cons and we hope to see everyone next year!
Baby Groot Sculpt by CadmiumCrab
Baby Groot Sculpt
I've been meaning to make this for a long time, but I've just finally gotten around to it. Lil' Groot is made of super sculpey and painted with acrylics. His little pot stands 1 inch tall and is filled with rocks that are glued into place, making him quite sturdy. I finished him with some accents of artificial moss. Overall, Groot is 5 inches tall.

Baby Groots will be available at Katsucon and other conventions this year. Come visit the DorkSpork table to get him!
Light-Up Zecora Sculpt by CadmiumCrab
Light-Up Zecora Sculpt
Another successful light up piece with a switch!

Zecora is made of apoxie sculpt and super sculpey over a wire and foil armature, painted with acrylics, and sealed with matte acrylic spray. Height-wise, Zecora stands a little over 7 1/2 inches including the base. She has a 3V LED in her staff. 

Zecora is currently available for sale, $110 with free shipping in the US (or add $10 for outside the US). Drop a note!
So I've been maintaining some radio silence as of the last few months, but I've been getting my motivational mojo back and will be posting some new stuff. 

Commissions will be closed for an indefinite period of time, mostly because I'm so bad at filling them. I will be offering completed pieces for sale as I post them. 

Happy 2015, let's get creating.

Journal History


CadmiumCrab's Profile Picture
Justine Garcia
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
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 (…). 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.

Missed you at PonyCon, it didn't feel right leaving without one of your sculpts(though I did get a nice Celestia plush). Hope to see you again soon! :)

Unfortunately, we always go to Katsucon which is held President's Day Weekend every year. I missed you guys too, it would have been my third Ponycon.  Hopefully I can make it work next year!

You have earned a Watch, you deserve it, but beware, it grants great power but also corrupts the user.
CadmiumCrab Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I will only use this power for good (mostly).
Anybronym0ti0n Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, we still need a bit of chaos!

Do you think you might make a tutorial for how you sculpt your ponies?
CadmiumCrab Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I've never been able to get organized enough to do a proper tutorial, but I do panel presentations at brony conventions about sculpting.
