Jurassic Park diorama
Using Mattel's toyline for the T. rex and the car, a Papo raptor and alot of wood, kit and paint I made this diorama as an homage to the original movie. The center piece is a long legged mosquito in resin AKA Hammond's cane given to me by a very good friend. Infact, that gift sparked the inspiration for this entire piece :) ty

I painted up the Rex in the car colors of the Jungle Explorer from the movie, as I also painted my first car in that color scheme. Ofcourse after bending it's knee to step on the car and after working out all the joints on the toy dinosaur.

The front lights of the car, one back light and the resin cast have LEDs in them now, operated with a switch next to the goat :) it operates on a single 9v battery.

Behind the fence is a slot that supports 1 dvd case. So the movie is right there.

All in all... I really like how it came out!

THIS... IS.... RBF!
Hello to all who would find and read this; I killed my social media channels a few weeks ago. 
I must say, it feels good but a little... ungrateful to all the people who took the time to comment, like and share our work. So I thought I'd explain it a wee bit here, even though not explaining and just putting a point behind it felt better for me personally.

Here's the deal; I  am done with the competative, self-absorbed 24/7 online digital PR-machine you need to become in order to stay "relevant" for a digital audience. To be blunt, I'm a bit to busy for that kind of thing. I am a father of 3 wonderful kids, have an amazing wife, work as a teacher, got a big social life and oh yes I own a company that is dedicated to delivering high quality costumes and props. 

On the otherhand, there is the part where ofcourse I (like anyone else) appreciates recognition and compliments to the work I deliver. I put blood, sweat and tears into my work and when people appreciate that it's really nice. There's a catch though... and that's ofcourse that nowadays it's a game of having to be seen and/or noticed in the hopes companies, event organisers or investors see/notice you and let you work for them. Obviously a high exposure rate makes it logical for such a  party to have you spread their commercial franchise or event.
Logical ofcourse, especially from the companies viewpoint, but it kind of shifts the exposure status amongst social media platforms from seeing and respecting quality work to a downright popularity contest. Everyone checking their phone first thing in the morning, last thing before going to sleep to see how far your reach has been in terms of likes/comments/sharing... well that's what I mean.

I've been struggling with these things for a while but recent events made it clear that I did not want to feel the way I sometimes do, after seeing social media exposure declining, in my opinion wrongly distributed, or letting my own opinion of my work be influenced by the social media feedback. (it's ridiculous, I know, but it just happens sometimes).

I have been fortunate enough to have some very strong supporters within Ubisoft and I cannot thank them enough for the oppertunities they have provided me with. I can only say that I doubt those oppertunites arose from a high exposure rate, as it was workking with Ubisoft that provided me with exposure before I ever had it. They noticed my work and how I present it at conventions and/or promotional video-photoshoots to represent their franchises and they put their trust in that and stuck with it, calling upon my services several times in the past few years. 

I am not done with that.... AT ALL! I am not done with creating awesome costumes, props or well... whatever I want to create :) And I hope I'm lucky enough to be able to sometimes combine that into commissions that help in raising funds for next projects or invest in new tools/equipment to expand different ways of crafting, next to travelling a bit and meeting awesome people :)

So.... I apologize for cutting off social media so bluntly, but it feels like an anker has been cut loose to be quite honest.

RBF-productions-NL is far from dead though, and new projects are coming on soon enough. I will be updating our website and it will most likely feature a subscription button that will allow you to get a message if I update my gallery or a progress shot of something I'm creating. That website will feature as a professional online portfolio and a place where, should people still be interested,my work can be followed, free from a like-stigma though. Untill then I'll upload a bit on Deviantart everynow and again.

So, a big thank you to every follower I had on social media platforms, I really appreciate all the great and nice feedback you've been sending over the years and I hope you can appreciate where I'm coming from in my decission to stop social media.

All the best and see you out there!!!
Rick

Ps. the AC gamecovers are still around, I'll be sending a few out asap, sorry for keeping you waiting.
