Episode #133: Making Thirteenth Hour Figures Part 3 – Adding the Head
Three weeks ago, I discussed a project to start making little figurines for characters from TheThirteenth Hour books. It continues this week as I add a skull – I say that since I didn’t get far enough to add eye balls, ears, and hair. (Listen to parts 1 and 2) I was thinking of this clip from Voltron this week (i.e. the part where it goes “… and I’ll form the head!”
Here is what I hope it will all look like:
Here’s where I started this week – a more or less completed but still headless body:

Next week – adding the hair!
Between Two Worlds, the synth EP follow up to Long Ago Not So Far Away is now out for streaming on Bandcamp.
The bonus track, called “Flight of the Cloudrider” has a 80s movie mashup music video (see if you can identify all the movies!) which is available on youtube. This app was largely created with the iphone app Auxy.
Stay tuned. Follow along on Spotify! There is also a growing extended Thirteenth Hour playlist on Spotify with a growing number of retro 80s songs.
As always, thanks for listening!
