I’ve got a Boss Voodoo in the works for Jonathan. This is the mother of all skull rings. They are HUGE, completely custom made, and usually have gold teeth and gemstone eyes.
Again, I don’t do hollow skull rings, so you can imagine how solid and satisfying that bad-boy is to wear.
There are a lot of moving parts with rings like this. We have SO many details to go over. Basically what Jonathan wants is a BIG ring with a big thick shank.
The only thing we’ve discussed thus far is the incorporation of the Psi, the symbol for psychiatric study.
Cool thing about an image like this: it happens to be shaped very much like the center-line and forehead of a skull. Preliminary sketches were easy:
Now this image uses the Psi in a very dominant way. It completely defines the planes of the forehead and nose and doesn’t leave much room for a bottom jaw.
“That looks like ass.”
Well perhaps not that terse, but basically he said he digs the Psi, but wants it to be a little more conformed to the forehead area. He also really wants a bottom jaw. Here’s another stab at this:
That side-view drawing looks kinda funky due to foreshortening. You’d think I’d be able to take a straight-on photograph.
What does the ring look like now? A big block of wax. No reason to rush a piece like this. We’re going to do it just right.
