Day 77: You want a WHAT?!

This boy here, and his Beyblade compatriot have been making things a little difficult for me the last couple weeks, and they've made their intentions clear that they don't plan on letting up on me any time soon.

I don't know if you know what a Beyblade is... (I only had a vague idea before last week.) They are more or less customizable tops that you use to battle your friends with. Each top is supposedly infused with the spirit and power of mythical beasts and strange made up creatures.

I'm being challenged each week to try and make a balloon version of the animals represented in little stylized imaged on the top of each... top... as it were.

So here is the first post of my attempts to make the monsters from Beyblade. I tried to find a picture of the image on the top, but I can't for the life of me remember what the name of the creature was. It was some sort of bat monster with large claws.

The boy said that I did a good job... so I'm happy with that.

See you tomorrow.


  1. beyblades are pretty cool, but that balloon is way better. keep up the great posts :)

  2. Holy Mackerel, Batman! That is an awesome blueish bat balloon.

  3. I used to love beyblades.

    Don't forget to check and support often your local information hot-spot! An important tidbit of information was released today.

  4. Holy balloons. Very nice artistry on these, following now because, well, I want to see more :D

  5. I work with a guy that is absolutely terrified of balloons. Whenever its somebody's birthday he actually calls in sick. His ex-wife will send their son home with balloons to piss him off.
