Please help if you can

 Baby Leah has been in and out of the hospital for well over a month now and she is only 3 months old.I don't know all the specifics
but do know the doctors cannot seem to pin down whats causing her issues. She has had a couple emergency surgeries and has
endured more in her short time on this planet than most of us adults.

 Her parents have been by her side the entire time making her the top priority.
I have set up this page to ask people to please contribute whatever you can to help relieve some of the stress and debt this has
created for her and her parents. Leah Parents should not have to worry about paying electrical bills etc. their first and foremost
concerns should be about their child only.

Please click on the chip in widget to donate what ever you can to help them out. ALL donations go directly to them. I have set this up
so their Paypal address is the one being paid no middle man. Also when you pay via Paypal mark as a gift when making your payment
so Paypal doesn't deduct any fees from your contribution.

If you cannot donate money but have some sort of prop item you could donate let me know I will be collecting items to auction off as
well. So please contact me if you have something you would like to donate for auction. My contact info will follow this. And thanks
everyone for whatever you can do.- Skygunbro

Mangalore glasses WIP

These are being sculpted to be a optional add on for the 1:1 Mangalore bust Im doing.I was given pics of a pair of screen used ones with measurements.So using those measurements I made a cardboard template. I then glued the template over a pair of cheapo Oakley knock off sunglasses so I could get a good contour. I back filled anywhere the carboard went out side the glasses with bondo.
I left the template in place and dremeled the glasses and bondo to the template.I removed the template and am now using super sculpey polymer clay to sculpt the glasses details.Here are some pics first pic is of the screen used pair im trying to replicate.

 We want your creature/character ideas! so I thought I'd make it kind of fun and have a contest of sorts.Read below to see how it works and where/how to vote or place your ideas.

Here is the guidlines for the facebook fanpage contest.
1. Can be any creature/character from TV or movie.
2. Must be of reasonable size ( I cannot sculpt a 1:1 scale AT-AT walker or anything really huge.)
3. Add your Idea to this posting on the skygunbros-custom-creatures facebook fan page here:
Skygunbros-Custom-Creatures Fan Page
(Please make sure you add your idea to the status thread titled CONTEST)
4. Basically you would like the person idea which would count as 1 vote or post your own idea.
5.Please also post a link to a reference picture of the character your referring to.
Contest will start today and close out on the 15th of next month JUNE 2011.
I have final decision and the project must be feasible to do in terms of time and money.Depending On whats chosen I may decide to do a 1:1 scale version or a smaller scale version.I may amend these guidelines further.
