Death Wears Flowered Flip-Flops

This is my first successful skeleton figure. This is likely the 4th grade skill level version of what I hope to create in the future. I tried to use Dinko Tilov's style of skull construction but found I had to modify it to accomodate the heat of my room and my not-so-delicate fingers and thumbs.

Anyway, here 'tis:
The next ones will be better. I'm trying to imagine incongruous Death poses. Maybe Death will be smelling a flower next time. I think I'll put some insanely happy or joyful object with Death in every incarnation. My skulls are getting better and the new ones will look less simian and have more expression.

Any special requests?

Nice. Are you planning on sending him off to eBay? I modified a thrift store doll and put it up on eBay late last night.

The flip flops are fantastic by the way...

Awesome idea. Maybe you could have him skateboarding, or riding a Vespa, or posing in a sexually provocative way, or sowing rather than reaping.

Lovin' the flip flops!

I love the toes most. Teeth came out good too. How about him petting a puppy. Or giving a dog a treat with a happy dog face waggin his tail.
