I was out hiking the other day, when there upon the path before me shined a shiny demon (who will get this reference?). As I approached he snorted and huffed, shifting his weight back and forth and looking otherwise unsettled. I approached slowly, cautiously.
'Are you here for me? Are you here to offer me my wishes in exchange for my soul?' I asked.
'Ha!' It chortled and snorted. 'We've seen your work Mr. Busher, we don't need to offer you anything for your soul...it's already well on it's way.'
Lucky lucky boys and girls! Two mutations in one week!
I'm now on twitter...if you follow me I promise I won't bother you with things like EVERY MEAL I eat or pictures of my cats, but you will be informed whenever a new mutation comes out! I can also be found on deviantart.com, flickr, and my facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/PreciousMutations ).
Also, you only have short time to submit a Hallowe'en art/craft/poem etc. here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/MonsterADay/ to be entered into a draw to win one of the three following prizes! An original piece of art from the genius mind behind gnarledbranch.com Mr. David Irvine, A monster plush hand made by Ms. Kerri Mercer (her fb art page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Black-Orchid-Designs-Alternative-Couture/168355306530865) OR my previous Precious Mutation 'What To Expect When You're Resurrecting'.
Happy Hallowe'en, oh and enjoy Devil's Night!

Took Jenny, Genie, One Man Wolfgang and What To Expect When You're Resurrecting with me on a hike today to see if I can get some better display pics. What do you think?

The resurrected infant needs extra care and attention. You must remember that it's jaw muscles and teeth (if they've come in yet) are not strong enough to chew through tough bone or muscle. Start it on a diet of glutimus maximus or belly fat. Breastfeeding is an excellent choice to provide nutrients to your zombie child. When he or she gets a little older you can spoil them with a bit of the brains too, as a reward for good behavior of course!
I had the hardest time turning that pot into a baby. Proportion can be difficult when your pieces are so small and you're trying to work around an pre-existing part of the original sculpture. I had the same problem with Boppo The Clown and Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Bombers. I know, there's a boob in the picture. I told myself when I started that while my pieces would be gruesome I would stay away from being crass...but it's a non-sexual boob and it helps with the joke of how to breastfeed a zombie baby so I'm making an exception this time.
I'm donating this piece to a contest http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=360660954028191&set=a.246880348739586.57530.246879415406346&type=1&theater both as my submission to win an original painting by David Irvine of gnarledbranch.com but also that he can give it away as a consolation prize. To enter for the contest yourself all you have to do is 'like' the monsteraday facebook page which you will do anyway once you see how awesome it is...and submit to David an original piece of Hallowe'en inspired craft/artwork etc. you've done yourself. Deadline is October 31st at 10pm so get working! and good luck!
Again I apologize for the duration between pieces...it feels like we've been so very busy, and yet I couldn't really tell you what I've done! I'd like to tell you the next one will be quicker but I'd likely be wrong. I'm glad I got this out before Hallowe'en though.
Hope you have a safe and happy Hallowe'en, haunt responsibly.
