Sculpting directly onto the base mold -  great idea! I bet you'll get a ton more design flexibility that way. Excited to see how it turns out.

Clack and Bro both have one, but it would be cool to see all the makers implement this. It's awesome having their galleries in one place.

Sir WASDson is pretty cool.

My favorite as a key remains Keythulu.

My favorite from a looks perspective is Lion Keyng V3.

Those would look good on just about any board.

Binge gifted me this pre-production Snorlax. So it's a sculpy model on a cap to form the positive for a mold. He never became a keycap.



The OG Derpling from Keycon 2013? I think. Same situation as the Snorlax.

I thought the same thing, about both the meme and the derpling. XD

Maybe we'll see a derpling revival in the future.

<3

OP needs some work. I think this is where we left off on the era-defining project:

I've heard of the cluster being called WASDson, but this old sale thread (warning, Moose trigger) calls the face cap Earl.

Pic of the WASDson cluster:

Show Image
Earl of Esc.  He's got more teeth, and thinks quite highly of his own profile.

Thank you two for the correction and confirmation!  :thumb: 

* HoffmanMyster will spread the knowledge of Earl of Esc

This is the first time im seeing this cap... when did it come out?

That's from what I'd call the Second Era of Binge (fall-winter 2013).  First Era (summer-fall 2013) was hand-sculpted and hand-painted stuff to raise funds, this was sculpted and cast.


For the purposes of preserving the historical record, can we then say that it goes like this:

First Era (summer-fall 2013): hand-sculpted and hand-painted stuff to raise funds
Second Era  (fall-winter 2013): sculpted and cast
Third Era (winter 2013 to now): Creation of slo-fi and caps that are still today being produced

Third era = explosion of innovation, including (1) sculpted bottoms (no off-the-shelf cap "base") with the creation of Skullthulu; (2) forced patinas, fluorescents and other effects; (3) Spacebear (self-explanatory)



OP is incomplete (it has no first-era caps) so I think as a tentative framework we should revise OP as follows (until we can come up with more exact definitions):

Second Era

And IIRC we left off with the task of subdividing the third era.

And IIRC we left off with the task of subdividing the third era.

This is my (rough draft) proposition:

First Era (Summer 2013 - Fall 2013)
Hand-sculpted and hand-painted stuff to raise funds (not included in this thread since it pre-dates the 'Cast Eras')

Second Era (Fall 2013 - Spring/Summer 2014; cast sculpts, casting method improvements)
"Hand-e-Cap" and "Earl Esc" http://i.imgur.com/UDKRXho.jpg
"Sir WASDson" http://i.imgur.com/TQLGI4E.jpg
"Comedy and Tragedy" http://i.imgur.com/V36ROqQ.jpg
"Moose" http://i.imgur.com/JqLKD7N.jpg - Comprehensive album provided by Jokrik https://flic.kr/s/aHskubCW9p
"Grizzlekey Bear" http://i.imgur.com/Uja4uui.jpg
(I'm split on separating these at this point, or perhaps after Smiling Jack - or not at all)

"Keythulhu" http://i.imgur.com/LJDwXUy.jpg
"Lion Keyng V1" http://i.imgur.com/ijhByRn.png

Third Era (Summer 2014 - Winter 2014; further exploration of subject matter, casts become even cleaner)
"Slo-Fi" http://i.imgur.com/milqosv.jpg
"Hoot" http://i.imgur.com/DVmUzEH.jpg
"Lion Keyng V2" http://i.imgur.com/0uUYzqd.jpg

Fourth Era (Spring 2015 - Winter 2015; even further exploration of subject matter, first foray into non-keycap base for sculpts)
"Lion Keyng V3" http://i.imgur.com/PUODEPw.jpg
"Ork Trooper" http://i.imgur.com/zSdCt4Q.png
"Space Bear" http://i.imgur.com/zvZbJ0G.jpg
"Skulthulhu" http://i.imgur.com/LhW8NY2.jpg
"Deal With It Jack"  http://i.imgur.com/IaKJsnp.jpg

Fifth Era (Jan 2016 - Present; post- :~$ynth sculpts)
WIP "Hungry" http://i.imgur.com/1VUgULz.gifv



I'm not 100% sure on the dates, as it's hard to find and nail down specific dates for these designs.

Also, the divisions are less influenced by dates and more by artistic growth, which of course makes it heavily based on my own opinion.  Curious to hear what others think of it.

Mod of the year (in a good way)!

Sadly, I don't have any OG binges so i can't chart the progression of cast quality (to the point where they're basicaly perfect now)  but I'll take your word for it on when that happened.

I wish we could include first round caps. I mean, where else are you gonna find an Old Gregg cap?
