Unpacked after the move – time for a new piece

OMG I’m so happy, I FINALLY unpacked my lino gear after moving. It’s been in storage since April.
Is it unmanly to squeeee?
Going to start a new design to get back into the swing of things this week.
I’m going to work on something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: Metaluna Mutant from the movie This Island Earth.
He’s a really neat looking critter with lots of texture.
I’m basing the design on this image I saw online (I like the pose) and using photos from the movie for reference for detail.
