One day he just said he was done, and disappeared.
I'm STILL trying to get over it. I used to love his blog where he'd review dollar-store food, and talk about his red-headed neighbors.
Oh yeah, I remember those posts, good times xD I think I destroyed that site because I didn't think anyone was reading anyway.
Toys got expensive, I got depressed, and I'm always broke so I called it quits. Got rid of all my fodder, most of my collection, etc.
Back then I was doing like 2 customs for people on the Fwoosh boards when I got banned for some reason, dont even remember why. One day I tried to log on and they wouldnt let me, I couldn't even communicate with the people I was doing customs for because the Admins wouldn't let me register again or even help me out by giving me their email addresses. Feh. Some guy sent me a bunch of Lego people as payment upfront and I don't even remember what it was for, it's disappointing. I still have a half finished Taskmaster for someone over there, all I remember is their first name was David. I hope that didn't ruin my reputation. Doesnt matter now, all the toy boards are ghost towns now.
I've just been sculpting in the meantime. I doubt I'll ever become a professional though, I don't have anyone to give me pointers, kind of wasted my life. :/
Recently I got some fodder and paint because I want to make Batman Beyond customs. I gotta say, the new Marvel Legends figures suck. They have gummy joints, terrible paint apps, lots of sharp jagged plastic flash, yikes. Why are these 20 bucks? DCUC got discontinued apparently, but thank goodness for Chinese bootleggers still giving us cheap base figures for customs lol
Oh yeah, I was a main writer for Articulated Discussion, an action figure review website for a few years. It was really popular, we got to go to Comic con in 2010 as press, we posted lots of cool content on the site from reviews to comics to contests and tutorials. Then the boss got in financial troubles I think, and the site shutdown, and I was left wandering around hopelessly again lol
