cherub brothas

I actually started these guys a few/couple/cant remember months ago and got busy with life and had to put it on hold. because they are a pair it felt REALLY weird that one had been completeled when I took a pause, and i swear it makes the whole procrastiation thing 100 times worse when you can FEEL an unfinished project nagging at you everytime you walk past the room its in. stopping halfway or for a break (more than a day) is usually the project killer for me. unless i finish it that day, its survival rate drops rapidly. thankfully this wasnt the case, and also i proved to myself that yes,  I CAN pick it back up and finish where you left off.

so I snagged a quick pic of these guys, one done (no laquer) and the other one ...just waiting
C'mon lady, dont leave me hangin...
 I didnt really know what i was going for with these guys, other than skelly-fied, and gaudy. check. and check. I have a SUPER big one im in the middle of that they definitely resemble, and will post when complete.  here they be:

They arent very big but they are done, and I dig them. There are a couple discrepencies between the two but thats kind of the awesomeness behind hand painted stuff, it has personality. They will be for sale at the studio, and hopefully some folks for the art show/grand opening will snag them up.

I also wanted to say that I bought these guys at my FAVORITE!!!! place to go thrifting/hiding from the world the Strasburg Antique Emporium in Strasburg VA. That place is a treasure trove, I got my shogun Godzilla toy there , and they have some arcade games set up and running (Galaga, Ms Pac Man and Street Fighter etc) I seriously will go there and play games and shop and creep around for hours. I really really love that place and they are good people so if youre in the area go in and check it out!
