Mounted Fish by mtomsky
by mtomsky

I am thoroughly impressed with all the pieces in this gallery, but I stopped on this one as a common feature throughout really caught m...

I've copied this from my Facebook post about the passing of Robin Williams, as I thought it would be appropriate for dA since the themes I discussed directly fuel my work here.

I wouldn't say it was it was solely due to Robin Williams' part in it, but "Hook" definitely made a lasting impression on me, and it will always remain my favorite Robin Williams film (and one of my favorite films in general).

I see it as an incredibly formative film for what my tastes in story, film, and character design and depth have come to be. All the hallmarks of what I enjoy about my favorite movies are key features in that film, and I even realized when I was a little boy that I liked those things for what they were: a world and characters that existed beyond the core story, an untold potential for further adventures within that world, and new takes on classic characters that themselves became new characters in their own rights.

I wanted to try to wring more out of it than that, but I feel those are the most important aspects of the film to me. And while the comedy throughout was great, Peter Panning's crow as he once again fully becomes Peter Pan still resounds as one of the more powerful scenes I've ever seen, and that is my definitive Robin Williams.

My history of participating in the costuming and prop building community began in the 501st Legion. I picked up skills where I could, and after a few years of trooping, I decided to leave the organization and set out on my own. I am deeply interested in the skills required and processes involved in building costumes and props, and I make an effort to learn something new in those regards with each new project. My interests are wide and varied, and as a result, my portfolio jumps around a bit.

While this dA profile showcases my personal work, these projects are also part of 2StoryProps - a prop building collaborative started by me and a friend (who, at the time we met, was my downstairs neighbor). A lot of 2StoryProps' projects require work from both of us as we each have unique skill sets. Though most of the projects you see here will be 2StoryProps projects, they will only be the ones that I've worked on exclusively or the ones I'm considered "project leader" on.

I have a question for you. Have you ever considered making the Sealed Master Sword from Skyward Sword? I know it's basically the True Master Sword, only without the glowing blade and the handles out, but it'd be an interesting challenge for someone of your skill level.

I've considered just modifying a casting of my current True Master Sword to turn it into the Master Sword, but the work involved in doing so would generate something not unique enough to suit my needs as a builder. I would, however, like to build the original Goddess Sword, so that I have a fair representation of each of the main generations of the sword. However, at the time I finished the True Master Sword, I had gone through several Zelda props in a row, so I've stopped working on Zelda props for the time being to focus on other interests. There will be more Zelda, though, but likely from Zelda U.

Ah, okay. I understand. I do love your swords, though, and your other props, too. They're all really great. Too bad I can't buy any of them, or commission you for some. It's mainly because I live with my mom. I'm sure I don't have to explain why that means I can't do much of anything when it comes to stuff like this.
