So I am slowly working through a long backlog of projects which includes many drawings and miniatures. It is a bit of a grind, especially as there are a million and one new projects that I want to start up. I have a shelf full of Warhammer fantasy, 40k and Infinity miniatures to finish painting. I also have to finish drawing up designs for new miniatures and finish painting my steam punk claw/'found art' project.
As for future miniatures projects, I still have not given up on the idea of sculpting and casting miniatures to sell. As stated in an earlier entry, I'm thinking about starting off with insectoid type creations, probably a 28mm scale, drawing a lot of inspiration from current insects and some of the first multi-cellular organisms such as trilobites. I'll basically be playing God, but in miniatures form. These minis will be able to be used in dioramas/scenery for alien themed planets or be used in miniature wargames ad proxies for other models.
bulletgreen: I am also thinking about starting work on pocket dioramas; little scenes in containers such as mint tins, little adorable things that you can collect. Essentially a miniature world which fits in your hand. I'll probably sell them on sites such as Ebay and Etsy. I reckon that they'll be fun to make and hopefully be pretty popular as well.
Later on, towards September/October; nearer to the time of the MCM Expo in London (comic con), I really want to start trying out a little bit of cosplay. I have always been fascinated by it and as I am doing prop/model making at university, it would help give me a bit of extra experience. As for what I should cosplay as, I have no idea, so if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to send them my way, I'd love to hear your opinions on what would be a great beginner cosplay for me.
