GLTAS ~ heroic sacrifices
Razer told Aya that he love her.
IN SPAIN DUB!
You didn’t expect that did you?
Razer voice is so cute and amazing!! *Fangirling strikes again*
I always get a kick out of seeing show I worked on in other languages.
Razaya grip on me is still strong
Look at how awesome Grey is! I saw this and thought Fanterns might appreciate. I also apologize if everyone has seen this a hundred times and me putting it up is like giving you the news equivalent of a dead racoon wrapped in last week’s newspaper which had been used as birdcage liner for a parrot with explosive poo syndrome. In that case I feel shame.
Grey, aka the voice of Azula and Aya, not to mention countless other classic cartoon characters :)
Fanterns assemble. :)
it’s always hard to decide Razer’s clothes
Wow, so appealing with so few lines. Awesome!

So shortly before GLTAS ended (sob) I started thinking about making an Aya figure because a) why the hell not and b) I had commented about it before and Giancarlo had replied rather enthusiastically.
So I got to work.
I first made a wire armature of the thing so the clay I used wouldn’t sag or break off, then built on top of that, taking chunks of clay bit by bit (I used ROMA—even the softest variety is rather hard, so it’s best to work in small bunches.
I made her fingers out of toothpicks because there was no way in hell I was gonna manage clay fingers that thin.
Plus they looked cool
I even went through the trouble of sculpting a giant lantern to go with her but then I never made a mold of it lmao
I also got overly ambitious with thwe project and shelled out over 300 bucks for mold-making silicone because of course I wanted to cast more than one, duh.
I’d only cast a sculpture once before and I did it with Bondo body filler, so I did the same here.
while the stuff was still warm I chiseled and sanded off the excess, then patched up gaps and replaced the toothpick fingers (the mold kind of… ate them) with Apoxie Sculpt. I’d tried Crayola Air-Dry before that but it just crumbled off once it dried. BLEGH.
I THEN IGNORED IT FOR OVER FIVE MONTHS
I basically had to resculpt her armor on with Apoxie since a lot of the details were lost in the casting (my mold was pretty sloppy too so that didn’t help lmao) but ANYWAY, after that and like a billion coats of gesso, I finally painted the thing tonight.
ended up doing the dark green detailing with some fabric paint I had lying around
LOOK IT FAEC
and there she is!
I’m gonna drill a hole under her foot and attach a base later
It’s cruder than what I intended but it’s technically only my second sculpt ever and the first one I did unsupervised so there’s that
THINGS I LEARNED
- don’t be an impatient shit and make multi-part molds if necessary
- don’t go nuts with the pose if you’re inexperienced casting
- get cheaper silicone lmao
now I gotta figure out what to do with the 24-pound silicone mold sitting in my closet
Impressive work, Cristina!
Actual shot from my Storyboarding class I’m teaching this friday and saturday evening at CTN expo, 2013.
Gotta give the students their money’s worth.
Best. Crew. Ever.
Happy Anniversary, GLTAS.
I can’t draw, but I thought I should mark the occasion somehow.
Here is an enter joke I always wanted to do, but invariably we ended up long.
Grotz be with you,
Mr. Krieg. You are awesome.
Two years ago on November 11, 2011, Green Lantern the Animated Series debuted on Cartoon Network with outstanding ratings.
FEELS. FEELS EVERYWHERE.
Two years? Really!? It seems like just…
Eh, now that I think about it, that’s about right. Razer is just now getting hungry again.
Thanks, everybody. May your uncle be in his cups before the Firewind reaches his farm.
So proud to have been apart of such an awesome series!
We can’t thank you enough for bringing the Fanterns such a wonderful, detailed, and heartfelt story. We only wish there were more. I can’t believe it’s 2 years old, it seems like only yesterday we were watching together at Moore’s Deli.
