#Valentine'sDay #ApexLegends #Diy

Valentine's Day is a time for love, so I created two Apex Legends Charms to commemorate this special day. The first is the Apex Logo Charm struck by Cupid's Arrow and bubbling up with so much love that hearts actually took shape on the Charm. The second charm is a first for me but a fan favorite, Nessy, but this special valentine's nessy is anything but average. This Nessy has two hearts helping it float around after this fun loving lake monster caught Cupid's arrow in it's mouth, most likely playing a game on cupid as I would assume most Nessy's do.

I pulled two 3D files directly from the game via the Legion program, customized the assests in tinkercad, and printed them on a Ender 3 pro. The last thing to do was to paint them and hang them on my weapon before I enter the arena.

Apex Legends is a strategic based battle royal with innovative combat and regular seasons. It's a fps that you can play in three different arenas (King's Canyon, World's Edge, and Olympus) located throughout the frontier planets called the outlands.

This was a really fun build. Thanks for watching.

#YearOfTheOx #YearOfTheBull #CementCasting

With the New Year just having begun I decided to create an homage to what this year can be. It's the year of the ox or bull so I made the Ox Talisman
from the cartoon, Jackie Chan Adventures.

Jackie Chan Adventures is a Chinese-American animated-live action comedy television series starring the adventures of a fictionalized version of
Hong Kong action film star Jackie Chan. The show includes Jade Chan, Jackie's niece, Uncle Chan, Uncle as he's known, and many others. Many of the
episodes contained references to Chan's actual works. The series ran on Kids' WB for 5 seasons from September 9, 2000, to July 8, 2005.

Talisman, in the show, are small objects made from stone that have magical abilities. Each stone has a different figure from the Chinese Zodiac
that relate to a different magical power. 2021 happens to be the Year of the Ox in the Chinese calender so I made the Ox, or bull, talisman.

The Ox Talisman grants the user super strength and was first sighted in the third episode of season one, The Mask of El Toro Fuerte.

I 3D printed the Talisman from a design I made using Tinkercad, silicone molded it, created a cement version, and poured blue resin for the Ox head.

This was the first time I've ever tried cement casting and found it quit difficult but learned a lot. This kind of casting can definitely be used in
the future.

Hope you enjoy. Thanks for watching.

#Pokemon #RealPokeball #CustomPokeball

With the end of 2020 coming I decided to make a Holiday inspired Pokeball from the Pokemon series (games and show). I 3d print a pokeball using files from a creature on thingiverse. I created my own inner panels and domed energy source. I used paint and resin Christmas lights to decorate the outside of the pokeball.

This pokeball was inspired by the holiday season which is why I used the Ultra ball format from MrFozzie to create this custom pokeball to have an H on top of the ball. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for watching.

#Cyberpunk #CustomKeyboardKey #CyberpunkArt

Cyberpunk 2077 released on December 10th 2020 and created a lot of buzz with it's playthroughs, reactions (good and bad), and amazing gameplay. The games mixture of retro aesthetics and futuristic tech gave me inspiration to create a custom clip keyboard key. In this video I create a mold of a keyboard key cap, modify a 3D key to fit my specifications, and use resin to create a clear keyboard key.

I 3d print both a flat keyboard key and C and P initials representing the Cyberpunk name on a Ender 3 pro 3d printer. Then I painted the background of the key yellow and black lines, including a palm tree to represent Night City. I coated the CP with blue resin then covered the whole key in clear resin to get the final clip key finished.

Thank you for watching.

#ApexLegends #LtmCharms #AluminumCasting

With the spooky season now over I decided to do Halloween inspired charms for Apex Legends. The Shadow Royale mode during the Halloween 2020 limited time event was an amazing and fun event and really drove me to create these new ltm inspired charms.

These charms will have a spiked shape to add to the Halloween theme. One will have a slimmed theme while the other will have a pumpkin theme.

This is part two of a Diy build where I create traditional Apex A charms using Clay, Sand Casting, and finally casting aluminum A charms.

Apex Legends is a strategic based battle royal with innovative combat and regular seasons. It's a fps that you can play in three different arenas (King's Canyon, World's Edge, and Olympus) located through the frontier planets called the outlands.

#FlamingThrowingKnife #CallOfDuty #HeatTreat

With the new call of duty game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War coming out on November 13th I decided to make a knife from the previous game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

This knife is featured in the game in Krueger's Pyromaniac pack. It's called the Heat Treat knife and is a flaming throwing knife that sets your opponents on fire when you hit them. You can use the knife in warzone as well.

I really enjoy the design of this knife with the blue and purple coloring of the blade and orange and black paracord wrapped handle.

Thank you for watching.

#ApexLegends #Diy #Charms

With the season split recently happening for Apex Legends ranked series I decided to create the Diamond and Predator charms that were awarded from the last season (Series 2) of ranked play.

This is a complete diy build of two charms using clay, molds, and resin.

Apex Legends is a strategic based battle royal with innovative combat and regular seasons. It's a fps that you can play in two different arenas (King's Canyon and World's Edge) located in a cluster of frontier planets called the outlands.

With March ending I decide to make some luck by casting a four-leaf clover. I use clay and brass to create this charm. I melt down the brass in a foundry and cast it. I decided to polish one brass side to get a semi-mirrored finish, but I left the back side with a pure cast finish.

To me it looks somewhat like a gold nugget. This is not video game relate but it does remind me of Rainbow 6 Siege or Apex Legends charms.

Thanks for watching.

In this video I make a Heart Container from The Legend Of Zelda series. The game this Container is based off of is The Ocarina Of Time, one of my favorite games. I used a variety of items to make this container including clay, resin, plastic mold, and sandpaper. This is a diy built heart container from the video game.

Legend Of Zelda is an action-adventure game where you play as Link and often times have to find and save the princess Zelda and restore balance to the world. It was originally published on the Nintendo platform and remains a staple of that developer.

That Crafty Gamer is a channel where I craft items from video games, T.V. shows, books, and all around nerd culture. I will try to make copies and inspired pieces. I use everything from resin to metal and, hopefully, everything in-between to craft these items.

Some of my favorite video games are The Legend Of Zelda series, The Elder Scrolls series, and Apex Legends while some of my favorite T.V. shows are Serenity, Vikings, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. Some of the best books I've read are The Wheel Of Time series, A Song of Fire and Ice, and The Lord Of The Rings. All this to say there seems to be an endless supply of material for me to pull from and if you enjoy any of these shows, books, or games then you might find something you enjoy here.

This channel is based for me to try new techniques and materials in my crafting to not only advance my skill but help the average person trying to create something from nothing along their crafting adventures.

I hope you enjoy - TCG
