nice work pics.funny vid but just what is peanut butter and jelly with a baseball bat.?
here's a link to a Photominp I did back in 1998, i'm thinking you might like it.
thats awesome! very well done, I tried photomanip when I was a teenager but the learning curve always frustrated me, thats incredibly convicing especially when you consider it's over a decade old. really dug your gallery of centaur drawings too, very sexy stuff
I really don't know what the peanut butter jelly song is from, but my kids sing it all the time, lol, some cartoon I imagine.
belle as a vampire. photo turned out like crap, I'm gonna have to try and scan it I think, maybe I'll mess with my phone's settings a bit and see if I can improve it, it's hard to tell on such a small screen,

forgot to throw this up here as well. getting slow in my old age I guess.
maybe I'd just better stick with black and white drawings for the ol' iphone. they seem to turn out rather well, but the colored ones shoot blanks. we'll see I suppose.
not much going on at work tonight, so I dug this thing out of the toolbox of my truck and figured I'd show it off a bit.
I made this four or five years ago, but I never really took any pictures of it, forged out of a slightly used size 2 Diamond brand Horseshoe with heel clips I didn't have my propane forge available to me at the time, so I used an acetylene torch to heat the iron, made it take a lot longer than it would've with a forge, but what can you do, eh?
made the scabbard too.
didn't really have any plan when I started shaping it, it just kind of curved up and I liked it. I cut off the other end of the horseshoe, and TIG welded it onto the handle for a guard. took a lot of filing and rewelding to fill in all the gaps
I heated and oil tempered the blade many, many times. I'm no expert on temper, but it seemed to work,
it's held an edge over the years surprisingly well for being iron, it's hella sharp too!
if you look closely, what appears to be a knick in the side of the blade is actually one of the nail holes from the other end of the horseshoe
again, I'm not the greatest blademaker, but the rainbow coloration on the blade is kinda pretty, and my Dad told me thats a good sign for a good blade temper
Man I really like how that Knife looks i'ma try my hand at one.
Cool man, you ought to try a railroad spike or something, I've seen some that looked pretty great. If you want to try a horseshoe, Ive got loads of them laying around if you can't get ahold of any in your area. I dont reccomend diamond brand shoes as they use an inferior casting process and the metal gets too brittle sometimes. St croix are much easier to work with
Made some progress on my map, not a whole lot, but it's something anyway
good tips Man.
heres a few i made awhile back spike knives .
Made a little more progress. Posting them helps keep me motivated
This is really cool. It will be nice to see the finished product in full.
