Well it is time to reveal the cast of characters in the mystery automata piece. While they are not completely finished I thought I would show where things have progressed to. I've had a few non-automata projects to work on lately so this piece hasn't been speeding along.
The last character is Vern. That's him on the left, unpainted and inattentive. Vern is not always aware of things that are happening around him. You might say he is a little slow on the pickup.
So here are the characters. The scene of course is not finished. More dishes, cutlery, etc are still to come. But what is the story? That is still a secret for now, although you might be able to figure things out from the photos!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
