Lovecraftian mechanical keyboard
This year I spent quite a lot of time making videogames so I decided to get a better tool for my work. Here is a video of my first attempt at very light keyboard modding.
Printing double vertical pages
Since my pdf files are usually regular single page documents and my books contain 2 pages per sheet of paper, here are my printer settings so I can print dobule pages vertically: Here is a short video of how i do it: Any pdf reader should have similar settings, but if you want the exact same as I use, you can get FoxitReader for free over here: https://www.foxit.com/pdf-reader/

Making the Book of Monsters from Lego Nexo Knights

Creepy Christmas 2019
It’s time for creepy christmas once again! As we do every year, we choose some creepy or non-christmasy theme to celebrate the holidays. This year we didn’t have any good ideas but we had a LOT of skeletos and skulls left over from halloween so we just gathered all of them and put them on top of a VERY cheap tree… This is our 2 dollar tree (painted black ofcourse…) It was falling apart… obviously… so we added a bit of tape… And covered the broken parts with some fabric. We thought of using a skull as the star on top of the tree: And we wanted to add some lights to it’s eyes for extra creepyness… Later we thought it might look better with a golden skull instead… It looked a bit too clean so we added a bit of watered down acrylic paint so it would add details… Test the lights… Add some tiny skeletons all over… DONE!
The Book of the Dead from The Mummy, final video
The Book of the Dead from the Mummy is ready! and here is a video summary of the project! There were MANY mistakes, but it’s done. The whole project took arround 3 weeks since we work on our off time but editing the video took many months since I wasn’t sure what exactly to show and what to take out… In any case, here it is:
Necronomicon pages… spoted in League of Legends video!
I was watching youtube videos to get some inspiration to start painting a couple character designs so I went to watch several of the brilliantly animated and drawn videos from the League of Legends channel and while watching their video Pentakill: Mortal Reminder… guess what I found?!!? The necronomicon pages!!!! I mean, of course the brilliant designs are not mine… But hey! My re-tracings are good enough for a freaking Riot Games! Should I put that on me resume?? Haha The pages are inside the book the mysterious book opened just after 1:36! Take look: How cool is that!!
The Mummy project (part 8) assembling the pages and final aging
This is the the last important step, adding the pages. Since we couldn’t find any reference of a working functional book of the dead, we had to be creative. Each one of our drop-shaped wooden parts has a strip of leather going around it and that holds a page from both sides. We used superglue and a couple of tiny nails to secure each page: Here is a couple detail photos: Once all pages are ready we starded ading all the pieces on the spine of the book. We just applied the same Bitumen of Judea that was used to age the cover decorations: First apply the bitumen then remove a little bit so that all the grooves stay dark: And now the spine is ready! And the pages are functional!
