Timekeepers’ Origin: Timekeepers are a goblin subspecies, they are born and receive their training in their native land, the name of which I do not recall. Timekeeping services belong to a highly specialized field and can be only provided by a well-trained professional Timekeeper. After completing their home education and maturing in their skills, young Timekeepers leave their country and assume positions of Timekeepers all over the world. They are intelligent, clever with their hands, meticulous in their work, and neat and orderly in their daily lives. Timekeepers never marry and remain bachelors throughout their long lives. Their private lives are kept private and the method of reproduction is unknown. Timekeepers are not what you would call “social”, they stay away from noisy goblin gatherings and prefer secluded dwellings. Due to this peculiarity, as well as their high work ethics and the gravity of the subject (Time) – Timekeepers are respected, admired and sometimes awed by the goblin community. They are usually well paid by the employer government.

Joe Blow (Part 4 – Head)

Continues from Joe Blow (Part 3 – Ball-Socket Armature)

Armature is done and I am going to make the body parts.
As usual, I will be using the stuff we sell at Morezmore (www.morezmore.com).

Eyes.
I am using delrin ball 7mm, with drilled holes – to make them rotate inside the head.
I described how to drill the holes in tiny balls earlier in Delrin Eye Balls for Stop Motion Puppets.
The method works great from small balls, but for larger balls I needed something else.
The research brought this little gizmo. I bought one to try, liked it very much and added it to Morezmore inventory.
