Beware my slowness in replying!!!!

I'm not dead yet!

I'm actually having a problem with my laptop (only computer than my phone) where if I bump it slightly, it will cut the power.
Like a forced shut down.

I am still here manning my messages and notes, but DA's phone app kinda stinks and blips me everywhere (and random buttons don't work on their mobile site)

Again, I will be slow to respond, BUT rest assured, that I am still here, working away on commissions and gifts until my laptop gets fixed or if I happen to break the bank to get a new one.

Wish me luck!

Thanks for Stoppin' By!

This is Beezul!
Quite a gnarly little dude!
But not to worry, he enjoys the company of others, and always tries to lend a helping hand.

CONTEST WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

It is with great excitement that I have been able to hold a contest like this for the first time in years!
The hardest part was only being able to choose 3.

I would like to congratulate:

3rd Place - for their outstanding concept of Bones in a costume - :icondragontrap: Soul Collector by dragontrap

2nd Place - for their amazing effect and almost horror-movie-like concept of Bones being the monster - :icontriple-shot: This Feeling In My Bones... by triple-shot

1st Place -  for their intricate detail and ghastly take on Bones being very surreal - :iconm-spencer: Bones in the Corn by M-Spencer

Congratulations for the 3 placing winners!!!

BUT! It doesn't end just there.
As a token of my appreciation for ALL THE PARTICIPANTS, I would like to extend a special gift for all of your hard work and devotion!

To this, I would like to present a pair of options!
 - 10% off any commission (Jewelry, taxidermy, custom art doll, novelty, or anything you have in mind that is within my realm of creation)
 - A small surprise gift to arrive just in time for the winter Holidays! (This would be a surprise left to my design. Which could be anything from a bracelet/necklace made using gemstones and possibly some wild accents, or perhaps it could be a small little handmade, fuzzy creature trinket/ornament, like a micro skull beastie, bird, or creature)


If the participants who are not 1st,2nd,or 3rd could note me, that may be faster (as I am only on a true computer for an hour or two at night)
If I do not hear from you, not to worry! I will send you a note within a couple days!
Nobody will be forgotten!!



Again, thank you to EVERYONE who made this an exciting event!
:pumpkin:
:heart:

Hello to all!
From ghastly ghouls to creepy critters!

I have arisen from the hiatus to bring forth a couple of fun things!

First.
How many of you would be interested in a little contest?
It has been far too long since I did one of these, and I completely miss holding them!

THE SUBJECT:
My lion-faced, fiery beast known as Bones.
Eternal Sun by MorRokko Bento Box Now Featuring Fu's by Zhon
Main aspects of Bones are: 

:bulletwhite:Boxy lion-like face
:bulletorange:Big eyebrow ridges (may or may not contain the swirl effect)
:bulletyellow:Horns (they are actually almost like a gemsbok horn, but only have one or two rings)
:bulletwhite:Pointy antelope-like ears
:bulletorange:Glowing yellow pupil-less orbs for eyes
:bulletyellow:Righteous mane (like a lion, that stops at the shoulders but trails down the spine and chest)
:bulletwhite:Flagged tail (almost like a golden retriever)
:bulletorange:Spiral/pinwheel wings emanating from his shoulders, and quite possibly his hips (hips are optional, but if present, generally a little smaller)
:bulletyellow: (Optional) Bones is often seen with a skull of predatory nature.


THE RULES:

:bulletblack: Any type of 2-D visual media can be used! If you excel at traditional paper and pen, go for it! Or if you do digital very well, by all means that is welcome!
:bulletblack: A maximum of TWO entries per person
:bulletblack: The entries should be presented in a clean state (meaning no stick figure scribbles, or colouring that resembles any age under 5yrs) 
:bulletblack: THE THEME IS HALLOWEEN! Put Bones in something festive! Cutesy Halloween costume holding a bucket of candy? SURE! The beast viciously running amongst a pack of werewolves? Go for it! I only ask that we all keep this contest at a rating of PG-13. 
:bulletblack: Please, no art that resembles any kind of personal/global/social hate. This is supposed to be a fun event for everybody. Any art that portrays this is subject to disqualification.
:bulletblack: HAVE FUN! This is an event to get your creativity flowing and show your love for the spookiest holiday of them all!

THE PRIZES:

There will be 3 placing winners of the contest! These winners get CUSTOM COMMISSIONS from me! And who doesn't love free commissions?

1ST PLACE: Receives a LARGE spooky art doll, ranging 12"-24" - Features a bobcat or fox sized skull for a face, real pelt for the body, and sculpted paws. Of the same caliber as these guys: Little Skullbeasts! by Zhon

2ND PLACE: Receives a Medium spooky art doll - Of the same caliber of the ones mentioned above, but in the 6"-12" range. (same, but half the size. Skull size of a raccoon or a mink)

3RD PLACE: Receives  a small spooky art doll - Same caliber of work as the larger ones, but stands in the 4"-8" range. (skull size of a muskrat or mink)

IF A WINNER(S) SHOULD NOT WANT THEIR PRIZE COMMISSION TO BE AN ART DOLL, I DO OFFER CREDIT OF THE VALUE OF THE ART DOLL TOWARDS ANY COMMISSION. (this means if you have been waiting for a plush, taxidermy, or jewelry commission, you can use these credits towards those! Kindof like a gift card to my workshop!)
1ST- $250 credit
2ND - $150 credit
3RD - 100 credit

DUE DATE:
October 31st! ---MIDNIGHT!   (PST)

At 12:01 PST of November 1st, the contest will be closed. 

TO SUBMIT: 
All you need to do is write me a note, post a link, or comment!

The Judging will be based on overall creativity.

Winners will be announced shortly thereafter!

ANY QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO ASK!


EDIT:
I realized that a lot of my followers are outside the USA. And I realized that I cannot ship art dolls containing wildlife parts out of my country. For my international contestants, I offer a cast skull/synthetic fur substitute so your prize is customs friendly!

The Test Subjects Were Infected by Zhon
The Test Subjects Were Infected
The enrichment center is required to remind you that you will be dispatched via vehicular carnage, and then you will be baked, and then there will be cake.
We do what we must, because we can.
Thank you for helping us help you, help us all.

This is Barrett.
Dressed up my Magnum for his first Halloween!
Even found a wonderful parking garage that looked like it had white and grey tiled walls/floors! (Secret underground track to Aperture Science!)
Hope you all enjoy this wonderful holiday!

-----------
Note: For those who would want to do this to your car, Be sure to hand wax the crap out of your car's surface before applying anything! (prevents stains) My blood formula is basically corn starch, and a LOT of red food dye. Mix in plain oats (like for oatmeal) to get the chunky, zombie gut blood splatter effect.
It takes about a half hour to powerwash all of this off if it is left on for 2-3 days.

The Ravenstag by Zhon
The Ravenstag
What is your design?
Is it all within my mind?
Barely shown through the darkness and rain,
Deep within your mind, I'm driving you insane.

----

This is my taxidermy rendition of Will's ravenstag which eerily pops up from time to time in NBC's Hannibal.
The materials I had used were an elk cape that I had dyed by hand, and plugged in various black rooster hackle and tail feathers.
The ravenstag in the show did have very different features, and with my creation, I decided to go with a more masculine look to the apparition, giving it a more powerful appearance.

"After all... this is all my design" ~Will Graham

I must have been watching you on an old account, so pffff, time to rewatch! Just curious, do you come across melanistic coyote pelts often or see them often? :U I've been thinking about getting one mounted in the future, but I'm a wee bit picky with my pelts.

I have! And I have one...maybe two mountable melanistic coyote pelts available, if you should need one. :)
