A Mechanical Spider made from recycled watch parts including gears, watch plates, winding stems, and spring barrels.
Spider No 9 presents a new design for my spider creations. Rather than the body being just soldered together stems and spring barrels, it consists of a chassis-like assembly made with watch plates connected by stems. Onto this chassis are soldered the spring barrels and stems for eyes, the legs, the light bulb and a few gears for added mechanical effect.
Each leg consists of four different watch winding stems that have been cut down to size and soldered at the joint. Each leg has three soldered joints.
After the legs have been soldered individually, they are grouped into sides, and each side is soldered together. The sides are then soldered to the body chassis.
Therefore, the legs themselves take thirty four soldered joints.
The chassis on this particular spider has around eighteen solder points, for a total of fifty-two different areas that need to be joined together.

This is a hand assembled and very realistic mechanical Spider made from the recycled parts of old watches.
His legs consist of some 24 different watch winding stems that have been broken into the various "leg" parts and then soldered at the joints (with lead free silver bearing solder) into a very lifelike position. The legs themselves required 32 very tiny soldered points.
The legs were attached to a body made of soldered strap springs, watch stems, and a nickle and brass cylinder pulled from a watch.
The abdomen was created from a tiny dead automotive light bulb whose leads are attached to the body with solder.
There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.
Dimensions: 38mm wide by 47mm front to back by 22mm tall. He comes with a 3" by 4" glass dome with walnut base for display. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.

Yeah, I wanted to draw this a long ago. It's only a dramatization of one of our conversations with my best friend ~BrET13 but it's absolutely true if I think about it seriously... .___. My favorit thing from Star Wars is a DNA. But that's a really precious DNA!
Aira really loved her master but sometimes she was just tired of being instructed all the time. Especially when Master Nada tried to teach her that she can't let her feelings lead her actions. She always had much difficulty with that, but always tried hard to meet the expectations of her master. So after he died she completely lost her motivation to endeavor to be a good jedi, so she felt the order.
Just a quick doodle thing what I did a few weeks ago but I felt like finishing it with a rushed background yesterday so I could upload it. Aaand this is the first time I drew an actual pic with Aira-ty's master... xD
Doodle for the TCW season 5 ep 10 doodles for other episodes: [link]
First of all I'm sorry I know that it's really messy, but my hand still hurt a bit, it's much better now but not the best yet... And I can't make big things yet, so this is only a very-very quick doodle. About the episode, well it wasn't a really bad episode, I just didn't like it... xD To be honest I absolutely don't care about droids. No, sorry, I don't like them. Boooring... Atroo is average one, but one entire episode is too much for me about him, but seriously... 4??? I can't and don't want to draw droids, nooo... And we don't even get Gregor until next year... I'm really pissed off right now... really pissed off... Gimme clones bitches!!!! (sorry I wrote fanfic about Grauzem for two days... x'DD )
I will make more cats as part of the Kingly Kollection in the future, but never another Candy Corn Cat, so this one is a one of a kind item and also the prototype. :3 It's also my first try at making a brushed amigurumi, which is why it's hard to see the stitches.
If you want this, you'd have to enter the contest and try to win second place. XD It's harder than getting first, in my opinion.
You can buy the rest of the Kingly Krew here: [link]
On sale here till the 28th: [link] They will be taken down on the 28th and won't be back. If they will be, they will be $40-50 instead of the current lower price.
I absolutely love these two~ They and any copies are for sale for Valentine's Day, be you single or a couple. :3 (Not on etsy since I don't have copies made yet) It was fun coming up with a different pattern for their tentacles compared to all the other octopuses out there. And I loved making the little heart hat for the girl octopus. >w< It was so fun~
By the way, you should listen to this while looking at these cuties. >w< [link]
I hope you guys like them. :3 I'll be uploading more Valentine's Day wares over the next few days. ^w^
Up next is something special. XD At least I think so anyway since it has been a very long time.
These two are about double the size of what I normally make.
Bulbasaur is the property of Satoshi Tajiri, Ken Sugimori, and Nintendo. I only claim creation of this plush and not the design. This is a fanart of it and the only reason I'd sell it is if I run out of room at home and if someone wants it or requests it and other different pieces. In other words, no copyright infringement intended. @w@
I will also be selling pokemon in my etsy per request. In otherwords, you can request a certain pokemon to be made so you can buy on etsy instead of as a custom order or commission on dA. There will be only one made at a time per request unless asked otherwise. (To request, send me a note on dA.)
These cute, soft, pastel colored octopi are sure to make you smile. Once you pick it up, you won't want to put it back down! Our octopi love to play, perch and pose, make one your new best friend (or make you best friends day by giving them a fun little gift!). Octopi are also masters of surprise, they love to get into all kinds of mischief together.
We carefully design all our own patterns and have been making these cuties for years now, you won't find a cuter or better made plushie! Each octopus has its own unique personality because each was hand crafted with love. Our designs are unique to our shop, and the quality is unparalleled! You won't find a better plush, anywhere!
More cuteness: NO derivative works, in any format, medium or form of ANY part of my works. Click either copyright notice for details.
I am actually really proud of this photo! Nothing was supporting the pile of octopi, it was rather precarious and they didn't stay balanced very long (but luckily, long enough to snap a few good photos!)
