Gringott's Goblin Finished






At Last...the tiny little Goblin Dude is finished and off to his New Owner. Sorry to post this so late and not have more of the 'WIP' shots... time just slips away so easily these days and I find myself off in another direction before popping pics.... I need to attach bright and colorful 'Post Its' all over me to remind me to 'snap a shot...NOW'!!!
We are happy with the way he turned out...
He is pretty tiny ...and I actually find myself (and my brain) geared more into the miniatures these days...we are working on larger elves right now and I actually had a difficult time yesterday 're-tooling' the old brain to ***THINK BIGGER*** ....lol! It was an odd experience.
But things are looking bigger now and I think I am on the right track at last...
Thanks again for all the very kind comments in the early stages of this little Goblin...
Hugs to all on this Much Cooler Tuesday Morning ...
Jodi
P.S. Happy Autumnal Equinox

Bellissimo!!! I love everything: the Goblin, the desk, the tiny plume, the specs, his curls, the books, the coins....do I have to say more? I love him!

Moriah said...

OMG, Jodi! This is by far my favorite Harry Potter creation to date! He's fantastic and I'm drooling on my keyboard, oh great, now I have to clean! Drats! Awesome and amazing as usual!

joanna said...

Ditto on all said, i am WOWeD again! And i know for a fact that the pictures as good as they are never do the work justice...

How did Richard end up stamping the metal pieces? Did he do all of them?

The books are great... every detail...

How tall is he?

HaPpY AuTUMNaL EQUiNOX back at ya'!

EnJOY the change...

Kim said...

I love him! The coins are so perfect- especially now that we know they are lovingly hand made- the feather is so great in the inkwell and the ledger makes me drool. Exquisite work!!!

dreamkeeperfae said...

Marie S said...

Hi Kathryn...

Thanks so much...I really enjoy the small ones now...finding it a bit difficult working the old brain to think bigger yet again today...although I think I came up with a fairly decent face...

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Julia..

Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Moriah..

Watch that electricity with drooling...I too have caught myself many a time with a causious drool over work seen on the Internet... bad enough that I spill my coffee on the key board...shhhhh don't tell Richard

So happy you like this little guy

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Joanna...

So happy you like him and thanks for the nice compliment about being better in person...hugs!

As for the stamping...he started doing them all , one by one and then decided that as they were going to be joined together for the stacks of coins...it would be crazy to finish this...so only a few (that show) got stamped with a little vintage design stamp that Richard has had for years...and always wondered what to do with it... it at last found it's use...LOL
He is 1:12tha scale and sat at about 2 1/2" tall ...I am now blind!!lol..

Hugs,
Jodi

Cody Goodin said...

The goblin turned out quite nicely. I am in awe of your attention to detail. I have been fascinated with miniatures for eons. I am finding myself wanting to do smaller pieces anyway.

Happy Autumn back at ya. It is really warm and humid hear in Cincinnati today. Yuck!

dreamkeeperfae said...

thanks! blushing here ;), but the steampunk really hit me, it is so much fun to work and play with...

LDWatkins said...

I'm a detail person! And I could spend much time with your little people. Fascinating!

Celia (Head Witch of the Hollow) said...

Jodi and Richard...you are both so talented that I feel sick (in a good way!) just looking at your work.
I can't say any more...

Creager Studios said...

Hi Cody...

Thanks bunches for such kind words... Hey, I think you should try your hand at miniatures...I swear...it changed my life and art outlook...
Can't wait to see your new pieces...
Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Andrea...

Well the steam punk hit you with a 'Magic Stick'...cause they are turning our beautifully...

Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Howdy LD...

My only problem (Richards too)...it is hard to know when to 'stop'...we keep wanting to add and add and add....almost becomes a sickness (in a good way...lol)

Thanks so much
Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Oh Celia...

Don't get sick!!LOL.... Well that is just about the nicest compliment one could receive...

Thank You
Hugs,

nikkinikkinikki72 said...

He's adorable and perfect in every way down to the tiniest of details.
He doesnt look like a friendly banker at all and quite mean and calculating!
I like the coins and want some too!
His nose is fab! I've seen people with noses like this.
Nikki xxx

Creager Studios said...

Hi Nikki...

Yes he does indeed have a rather unfriendly look about him...much like the tellers at my bank!! I have a thing for noses...they always say...You sculpt a little larger the body parts you enjoy the most!!

Hugs,
Jodi
