Hellboid

Earlier this year designer Andrew Bell teamed up with Dyzplastic and put out a line of totally adorable vinyl toys modeled on the Android operating system mascot (production process and updates on their blog here.
Totally sweet!
Along with a blind box series they also put out a blank DIY droid. I've never done a vinyl mod, so when i saw them at Comic-Con this year i picked one up!

I figured i'd stick close to home on this one, so i chose to make a Hellboy droid :)

Toyed around with what to do about the antennae/horns, and wound up just combining them.

Big shoes to fill, little guy.

The horn-nubs, right hand, tail, and little hair bun were made out of Green Stuff (dries without baking, pretty easy to find)

The little dude likes Buffy, bless his heart :)

... and then painting time!

Several coats of paint and some mostly-dried out sharpies later...



There's a pancake. He found the pancake!

(i had just enough Green Stuff leftover...)

And that's the end :)
