Motor Hat

I've no idea for what this hat is for or how it works. Anyway, I really enjoy painting all sorts of reek, damp, steam etc...

This sidekick character was for a nice project from last year. The client really liked it, but after all the market research resulted in prefering something like "pink girlies" and stuff.

Hu, tomorrow is Friday already, I really wish to have an Otter Ball craft for this weekend's getaway...

Update: Hu two, I totally forgot to link to Erwin Madrid's wonderful work in progress painting post! In this very connection, it seems natural to refer to Mr. Erik Martin, too.
