The Pirate is Complete

 I finally finished the Flippy Face Pirate. His name is Captain Cutup. I went through a few names; Capt. Cuthbert (turns out he's a real person), Capt. Cut Throat (too violent). But with the help of my wife Jane we came up with Cutup. Jane also wrote some great poetry for me, which I changed around (can you say control freak). What took the most time was the sword arm. I had to work to get it to rotate so the sword would not rub on the hat. Here's a pic of the pirate debris.

To get yours.

And check out the great instructions I made for the pirate.

Pirate Design to Reindeer

In September I started working on a pirate design. The shape of the pirate hat on the little flippy body really turned me on. The idea came from a sketch I did. 

Well I was happily working away and suddenly it was October. I thought, hey I have a cool idea for a ghost. So, putting the pirate aside. I started to work on a ghost for Halloween.  But as it got closer to Halloween it became clear that I could not finish the design and the layout in time. So I put the ghost design aside.

Rather than starting a turkey for Thanksgiving I began working on a Reindeer for the holidays. Here is an early version. The sketch that inspired it looked very funny, but the horns did not look so good after making them.

Well I worked through November with a break for T-day and the Rowdy Reindeer are almost ready. Look for them soon :!)

I will finish the pirate and ghost some day. Probably just in time for Pirate Day and Halloween.

Angels Almost Done

Here are the two angels. Almost ready to go. This is an older pic, they lack the finishing details. I'm just finishing the layouts and then I will put them on the web site. Very soon.

Angel Flippy Faces

Now I'm working on my next Flippy Faces character an Angel. She started out as a quick sketch and she is coming out pretty cool. Here is the sketch and some of the test builds. Note the gorilla face on the front one.

Web Site .net vs .com

Well i got the website up and running. You probably know that if you are reading this. But I made a big mistake. The web site is but on all the layouts for the two gorillas it says .com. :{(

But I solved this by buying the .com name. If any one got lost I am sorry.

Now I needed a web site to give these little guys away for free.
I already had the name FippyFaces. Thanks Bill.

Here are some sketch ideas for the site. I still need to put in the flying saucers.

So now the site is up and ready to go. I have two free papercrafts and plans to make more.
Please take a moment to look...
