The Eros Plasti-Project [Finished List!]

Post by Eros »

hello, this is eros, attempting to create most (if not all) the characters of keen using plasticine!

as i have already shown on deviantart, i have made a squashy Keen, and a Robo Red with a modified gun. both can be found under the name ChangedDaily, but i want to make more of them.

this is the current list of characters that i still need to make:
all finished!

this is the list of characters i already finished
Krodacian
Krodacian Magi
Prospector
Chungellan
Skypest
Brombo
Fat Monk
Service Droid
Yeti
Drillbot
Lick
Treasure Eater
Mirbot
Bobba
Flect
Mort XL
Blue Bird
Vorticon Grunt (blue)
Vorticon Elite
Vorticon Grunt (green)
Vorticon Grunt (yellow)
Blooguard
Shockshund
Dopefish
Stone Krodacian
Krodacian Overlord
Cybloog
Bounder
Arachnut
Imposter Commander Keen
Shikadi Aggrolyte
Shikadi Master
Vlorg
Cactoid
Bio-Garg
Fleex
Stomper
Sand Wraith
Probe Carrier
Shikadi Probe
Patsy
Bipship
Cobrit
Red Vorticon
Spirogrip
Meep
Yorp
Mortimer McMire
*gasp* Robo Blue!

names in this color of blue have been completed, but pictures haven't been taken for them.

anyone with suggestions is welcome to suggest them, but i would like to reserve the right to decline in making all mod enemies, for the sheer fact that there's about 100 different modded enemies for Marooned on Mars by itself.

critique is also wanted, because i want to hone my plasticine skill to its highest.

if this should be merged with the fanart thread, i do not mind, but i created my own thread because i want a way for all the characters to be displayed on one easily found page.

EDIT6: okay, i'm practically done the project (enemies that spark my fancy will be added), anyone have any suggestions for models?

Awesome. Good luck on this project. :)
Just a couple minor suggestions:
-Take a bunch of shots from different angles, so we can see the models better and so there's less chances of the final images being blurry.
-Double-check your hyperlinks. :P

But seriously, this is pretty cool. I'd personally like to see you make the Cobrit from Keen8 (which I see is on the list) just so I can see how you keep the clay standing up, but that's just me. :P
Why procrastinate when I can always do that tomorrow?

i only provided one of each picture because although i usually take three, i thought people would get sick of more than one each.

for the cobrit, i have toothpicks which i'll jam into its body, to both create guides for the coils and make sure it stands up.

i may need a better camera to take less blurry photos. with luck, i may find one in the depths of my house.

both the robored and the keen stand above the length of an index finger, but i'm making the new ones less than thumb-height.

finally, i may have a bit of trouble with the upright arachnut, can someone provide me with a picture of a stunned one? thanks in advance.

MMS has gone away. I don't know why, he didn't contact me now for a pretty long time.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

MMS' sig says he's inactive, but since he doesn't post (being inactive), you don't ever really see it. :P

the hayro experiment still has some explaining to do, anti204 is working on the tileset, which should be enough to finish the training base BWB level by april 9th.

anyway, this is just a little something for me to do while i wait for my turn to come up.

anyone have any requests for figures?

Sorry I forgot to upload a pic before, but here's the stunned arachnut:

I would kina like to see a Foob, but they may be slightly harder to do.

Wow, they look great! I especially like the Bipship. :-)

Could you use another camera or use more distance while taking a picture? All of those are pretty out of focus.
