Thanks Dutchess! I'm already working on my next piece as I type. I've got a few basic pieces in the oven, right now. I'll post some pics of the 'new' basics.
The theme:.... OEJ's first time trick or treating.

That piece is just amazing. Truly amazing. You've outdone yourself. Speechless......I can't find enough words. I wish I could find a song to sing to praise your work, but nobody would like my singing.
As for mass production, I would consider contacting the companies like Lemax that makes Spookytown, and send them a picture of your work to start off with. Just a letter of introduction and a picture of your first few pieces. make sure you put some kind of copyright print across them. That is the best advice I have. Good luck. Again the piece is awesome!

As soon as I get a few pieces completed, I'll really start weighing out my options.
This next piece is called 'OEJ's First Trick of Treat'
I'll post pics as it all developes....
Step 1: It all begins with a few blobs of nothing.... From left to right: OEJ; A big sister and her little brother.
Big sister's mask and hat....
P.S. Does the mask remind you, perhaps of another 'big sister'?
I get off early tomorrow so, perhaps I'll be able to make more!

hahaha! Yep, sure does, It reminds me of MammaHooch and her facebook picture!
I'm I right?

MammaHooch & One Eye'd Jack are going trick or treating
guess I better stick to MHooch, unless I know she's ok with the nickname
You're on a roll there Jack! Can't wait to see the Leaky Cauldron, Her Witch & Bats flying around her, oh and gotta have a little black familiar kittie

MammaHooch LOVES the nickname, almost as much as she LOVES you two pumpkinheads!!!
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, my friend....flatter on!
Great witch mask, huh?

Sweetness! MammaHooch it is then
Hey I'm gonna try making some of my own witch kitchen jars, just for outside on Halloween, I'll buy those ones I love at Michael's for my real kitchen lair
the 13th is Harry Potter Day, Yippie!!! but my man will have come home and left again, so we won't be able to go together, bats!

OEJ, I think your inaugeral piece is simply fantastic! Be sure to include in your autograph "To my buddy LawP, thanks for believing" and don't forget to use lots of bubblewrap when you send it to ME ME ME!!!!!
Sorry...got a little carried away. Good art moves me.

Wow thats really impressive. Looking at each step it looked really good but once you posted the final product it brought a real feel of Halloween. Really a great job.

Thanks LawP, you certainly are a funny Halloween.com member!
I'm really glad everyone liked that first piece. My second piece, however is presenting me with some proportion problems I hadn't forseen. I had to scrap the base and the three bodies..... but I kept the mask and hat
If you recall, I had to also scrap the first OEJ head... It was too big as are the three little TOTing bodies. So, we'll just see.

'One Eye'd Jack's First Trick or Treat': Revised...
I've made the over all scale of the piece a lot bigger than I had originally intended. I want the TOTer's to be small but still big enough to capture a lot of detail.
I wanted to post these legs, first off, because they're my first real attempt a actual human anatomy... I think I've gotten the skin tones and proportions down pretty good.... However, at this point, they kind of both look like left legs..... and secondly, 'cus you wont see them once they're in the whole scene, with the dress around them and with the shoes on. One's with a flash and the other is not.
