  1. Joey, I really like being able to see all three of the guys building at around the 23 minute mark. Please continue doing this view as much as you can!

  2. Its funny that they mention Kevin Smith and podcasting in a clay video… one of the SmodCast podcasts did a kickstarter to do a Rankin-and-Bass style claymation film about a year ago ( it’s called the TESD Claymation Movie ). I think there is a single artist they met at a convention, who has been working on it for over a year.

  3. First 2 videos were really cool and informative but this is the one that made me want to really try this.

    I was looking for a mini bust but haven’t found anything like a blank head but I did find some spiderman bust/bust-banks which should be smooth enough to not have to deal with the Joey hair problem. 😉 I guess I have my project for this weekend.

    Loving the series.

  4. A couple years ago, a sculptor by the name of Cesar Dacol Jr did a series of youtube videos that he called “Monster Month” that are basically timelapses of him jamming out 30 clay sculptures in oil clay that this feature reminded me of. Might be interesting for people who want more video content along these lines, though a bit less instructional.

  5. Is the Norm or Joey head model available anywhere? My ISP is having problems today, I can’t reach Thingiverse to look for alternatives
