These looks great dude! I really love that blue paintjob.
You're getting a really nice build up of layers in your paintwork.
Keep it up!
Love this- Just excellent work all around. The textures on the neck/chest are especially nice.
I need to rob a resin supplier...These each weigh about 4 pounds.
I was totally inspired by the stone trolls. I wanted this guy to be the Tolkien troll meets the actor Michael Berryman.
Started painting a partial casting too:
Really nice stuff going on in these already! The pose in the first piece is dynamic and fluid, it totally reminds me of an early Predator maquette I've seen out there. Looking forward to seeing more creatures!
Love it dude. That elephant skin texture is working here.
That horn is massive.
Beautiful work brotha. You're killing it.
The face is really working for me, there are just so many options to paint her with, I cannot wait to see one all finished up.
They are just badass. They've got a killer mix of Heavy Metal and Moebius going on. You can't beat that. If you offered a print of the biker girl (it seems to be the more polished of the two) I guarantee you would sell quite a few. Keep going with these "experiments" because this style is working. I could look at these all day.
These fucking rock. I'd proudly display a print of either one...
You do these recently brother?
Love it dude. I've always wanted to try my hand a Joker sculpt...
You've got really nice detail and crispness of form going on here. Planning to paint him up now?
Looking cool- it's got a mix of dinosaur and alligator going on.
I think it needs a bit more bulk in the back of the neck though, or the shoulders pulled back. Something about the balance between the pushed out chest in the front, and the flatness of the back is throwing it off for me. Keep going!
Loving this dude, you've got the character down in it.
I also like that you didn't choose to go overly large with the eyes.
Dude these are right up my alley.
You've got some really solid sculpting going on in Frankie's torso...I'm hoping you plan on getting these in resin! You'll kill with them.
my man. I try.
Thanks man. I used a metal coating. Here they are:
I totally just used an old tshirt and some liquid stitch for David's skirt...some clever tears here and there...I am damn near useless when it comes to sewing! haha go for it!
thanks dude, I'd love to see some of your work with this treatment.
Damn, this is absolutely beautiful. Really elegant and well composed.
Can't wait to see you paint him up.
Looking REALLY solid here dude. You are pushing forward with this.
The bulk of his chest looks especially excellent. This will be a really strong display piece when it's all finished and ready. As a quick critique, I would take another look at his lats. You've got them a little too far forward on his ribcage, when the curve should start from behind/under his shoulder. this is an area I really struggled with for a long time, so if that explanation didn't make any sense, feel free to pm me!
Thanks guys- I'm glad you dig him. this is a little different than my "normal" stuff.
Just wanted to add this too:
Hey everyone! It's the end of the semester here for me, which means a ton of new work to show! I did these with the intention of showing some work in a gallery in the very near future.
"Always Another Goliath" 18" tall- Super Sculpey, Painted with acrylics. Cloth and latex too.
This is the first sculpture in a series of biblical tales with a contemporary issue/element worked into them.
This is a bronze coated resin casting of my Giant of the Mountains kit.
and finally, a little Silver coated Drac bust.

Beautiful detailing on this. This is a wild take on the Joker too.
Really cool to see you doing some monstery stuff man, this is definitely scary!
Welcome in dude!
Really cool piece. You definitely don't expect those braids, but they really add character.
There is so much character in this guy. Your paint work looks really smooth too. Cannot wait to see what's next.
