Hi. This is my first post on this site and I'm pretty new to posting on sites in general - so here are some sculptures. I've been enjoying all the great work on here so I thought I'd throw some stuff up. Any comments or critiques are welcome.
They look fairly decent, what material are you using though?
If you can i would suggest using a smoother material, as meny people mention, Super Sculpy is a good one.
On the bust of the old man, for example, i can see small particles of the material that give it a rough grainy look.
As far as i can see, the proportions you used seem to be pretty accurate to anatomy. One thing that i think might have added a bit of character to the old man is having a small flap of throat skin, like a turkey, that older people somtimes have. But dont worry at any rate, they are great.
Keep up the great work, and if you have more pictures dont be shy.
I really really really like the first one. I can't stop looking at it. Great detail too. Looks almost real.
Would it be possible to get some more shots of the first one? Frontal, back? I think it's great.
Dalhimar - Thanks for the comments and suggestions. The fist monster dude is sculpy. The second head is sculpted in wed clay and cast in latex. And the last is chavant. The grainyness may be in the photography- but I did put in some texture on his skin.
Artastic - Thanks- I put up a couple more pics. The last one is a closeup of the skin. Its his butt
Skin tone is fentastic
skin tone is fantastic
Beautiful - that monster is incredible, you are a painter turned sculptor? Thinking of the awsome job on the skin...
What amazing work, look forward to see some more.
Can you give me some tips on painting such realistic skin.Please.
Yeah, make us a skin painting tutorial! We demand it! But seriously, that is some super amazing work. The tension and balance of the pose on your standing figure is outstanding. I'm worried about where his penis went off to though.

Castorfiber-thanks, I do a little of everything I guess. I make props and miniatures for movies and tv here in L.A., and I also sell my personal art and illustrations.
So I stay busy
Omb-Thank you. Here is a brief explanation on what I did...
I airbrushed on the base skin color that I mixed up. I think I used fw acrylic inks for this.
I then spattered different colors over that base color with a toothbrush (for a larger sculpture I might use a chip brush or something, this figure is about 16").
I started with a blue violet and thinned it down a lot. I dipped the toothbrush in the paint and kinda brushed my thumb across the bristles to spatter it on there. I then spattered a red, and then a yellowish white. It should be subtle and the paint really thin so you can see the different transparent layers. I could then go in with a small brush and add blue in the viens and reds on the ears, nose, knees, etc. and some brown moles.
I used some matt medium mixed with a little gloss medium on the scar, nose, to give a slight shine. I'll use epoxy or gloss medium on eyes or something I want to look real wet and shiny.
Breath of life - Thank you. I'm casting the old guy now so maybe I'll take some in progress shots of the paint. I'm not really into sculpting wieners so I figured he's a monster and doesn't need to have any junk.
Wow - really nice work. Great skin!!
Welcome on board
i love the fisrt one, the pose is great, as i was looking a small creature or person, skin texture is very nice too
And your different heads'work is awesome
Awesome work, 'Stover'!
Love the detailed surface and paint textures you've achieved! Congrats.
But remember, even monsters gotta pee - so you'll sculpt a wiener, and like it Mister!! Whattayawant him to do; squat, hike a leg up, sit down, pee on himself? Have some compassion, willya?!!
Keep up the awesome work - look forward to more.
Haha. Thanks. Maybe the next one will get a wiener.
So I painted up the old man head and here a couple pictures of him. It's about half lifesize and cast in latex. Thanks for looking.
mazing pieces of work. hope to see more of your work in the future. WIP pic would be great for loads of things, the old man is cast in latex. latex is kind of rubber? how do you cast that? after it solidified, is it like a rubber mask thing? why latex? client's requirement? sorry for the barrage of question, am new to the world of sculpting and casting. thanks again for sharing!
dkounios - Thank you.
zenichi - Thanks. I used slip cast latex and it does end up being just like a rubber mask. I made a two part mold out of hydrocal and poored the latex in, filling it to the top. I then let it sit for an hour or so while the latex builds up a wall and then poured the rest out. After that it needs to cure for a day before it's taken out. I used latex to give a softer skin-like feel to the head.
for great piece
I really like the way you painted him,
Did you use an airbrush? Is that acrylic?
