affraid

BY GOD! WOW! I'm speechless... Did you sculpted the head too? What the hell you do for living? Are you a sculptor? You got the talent... definitely! You could cast that in resin and sell it... EASILY!

It seems redundant... amazing work!

MAGNIFICENT! That is one of the MOST impressive Dragons I've EVER seen. The sculpt, paint job, base ARE perfect. The piece has a tremendous sense of motion & an imposing presence. INCREDIDIBLY WELL DONE! thumbsup

yah it took a long.....LONG time to finish. and it was done in several different parts, (head) (body) (wings) (base) ect...if i wanted to cast it i should have made molds when i had the different parts completed, but now its way to delicate to cast in anything. i've done sculpts that i was able to cast, but that one by far is the most detailed and impressive. i cant sculpt any smaller than that though. i've tryed making GW size mini's but i cant even get close to sculpting that small

Hm, interesting. As a sculpting layman (n00b) I would have thought once you can sculpt that well any scale would be feasable easily.

I'd be happy if I could sculpt as well as you on any scale Smile

needles and pins before, but never sculpted with them lol. do they use
putty? or wax? for the original?...i'd like to see a documentary or something on the GW process

Hey, tux! One of our Ubertalented Forumites, blitzkrieg bob, is quite a talented sculptor also; he is currently doing Chaos Dwarves, Battle Monks, & related minis from scratch. Check out his WIP Thread http://boringmordheimforum.forumieren.com/painting-and-modelling-f3/bob-s-self-sculpted-minis-check-this-out-t1299.htm for some ideas & leave him some questions, if you'd like advice on tools & such. thumbsup

I once saw a photo of Tom Meier's sculpting apparatus; he sculpts lying on his back with a binocular microscope rig that looked like it came out of a B SciFi movie. That was enough to dissuade moi fro attempting mini making Suspect .

Amazing! It beats all GW's WHFB dragons claws down! It's so refreshing to see a dragon that doesn't look like a snake with wings! And it's incredibly sculpted!

wow thats a pretty good idea if you could pull it off, no doubt its to keep the back problems of hunching over mini's to a minimum.

once i'm done with my school finals i'll have time to experiment this summer..

after tuesday i will be on summer break, so i'll have time to sit down and start sketching ideas out for it. then hopfully start getting the bugger out in clay. i'll definatly post when get things going on him.
