    Red face Making of 'Nosferatu' Video in HD!(post#715)

    Attachment 1333646

    Hello everyone! It's been a loooooong time since I've posted here, I've noticed so many new faces in here and it's good to see that the all time greats are still here too. Over the years I've been working on a big personal project, and I thought i'd show you guys a few of the sketches and sculpts that I've done.

    Neko Ryu
    I actually posted this sculpt more than a while ago and at the time I had a welcoming response from everyone here in the forum. Unfortunately I've since lost the all original, 'in progress' images and all the other attachments. I was redesigning my website at the time and I deleted all my images, then, shortly after my computer literally imploded, losing everything. ('Ayo.. I'm tired of using this technology'.) Over the past ten years I've made only 3 other huge dragons all of which I've destroyed mainly due to sheer crapness. With the previous attempt, I took it apart after spending 3 weeks trying to make it look good. But the armature was weak and it just went floppy. But then I tried again using copper and brass tubes, stronger wire and milliput. I made a very strong armature and I then started adding the sculpey, then ever since I've been very careful in what I do so I won't have to mess it up again. I wanted to make a dragon that matched my vision as well as my style so I wanted it to look like a bird and dinosaur, built like a pit bull terrier dog, and prowls like a cat. Below you'll see where I, 'loosely' based my sculpture from a painting that I did called, 'NekoRyu' (Cat Dragon). I poured my heart and soul into this. And one last thing, this made it into New Masters of Fantasy and Spectrum 14!

    Minotaur
    Yes, my second sculpt, done a little bit quicker that the dragon. However since then, I now look at it and wonder why I did some of the things I did and i really want to make another one. But anyway, the next minotaur attempt will be less bulky and will look less like a scary mutant dog. But here you are anyway!

    Shiro
    Like all sculptures that I create, I always make them over extended periods of time. And I really couldn't tell you how long I spent on this particular piece, but if I estimated the time it would be very roughly in the region of a fortnight and that doesn't include the planning. What I have learnt from sculpting is that planning makes perfect, well.. I don't know about perfect, but certainly makes life easier for me. Anatomy is as always vital, and I'm still learning it now so please excuse me if you do see any mistakes. I've gathered a pile of, 'anatomy for the artist' books, photographs and even video clips of both human and horse anatomy. I feel more confident now but I always find it beneficial to refer to them when I need to. Horses are beautiful creatures, and by lobbing of it's head and sticking on a human torso wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. There are certain muscles around the neck of the horse that when modified slightly by design, it houses the torso of a human being! Well.. kind of.

    Excellent work, great style

    Maybe on your dragon you could had a little reflect on eyes with varnish or a point or two of white painting

    Anyway the all thing is great
    What did you use for the drool of the centaur?
    What is the address of your site?

    Hey Aseyngel,

    Many thanks for your kind words, and it's also encouraging to hear it too. By the way, I really enjoyed looking at your Croc sculpt, it's fantastic.. in fact it's something I'd buy from the shop.

    Heh.. you know what? If you hadn't mentioned it then I wouldn't have noticed myself! So thanks dood. This sin't an excuse or anything but, I really don't think these low res images really do it enough justice. So here's some close ups of the eyes of the dragon (under different lighting and angles):

    Attachment 330894

    Whenever making creature sculpts I always like to use steel ball bearings painted with ink or glossy paint. This particular dragon had black ink and it gives a nice sheen to them.

    I did actually make a bird sculpt about 11 years ago and I painted white spots n his eyes but it didn't work because of it being false lighting, so ever since I've just thought about making them look more natural. But thank you for your suggestion anyway!

    And I think you meant the drool on the Minotaur right? The big funny ugly dood? I used UHU glue, which is a really crappy glue but is great for creating slime. Once dry it becomes elasticated! So you could easily replicate snot or slime easily. I think next time I'm going to try using a glue gun to get the slobber effect.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to look at my work and for your kind words and comments.

    All the best!

    And by the way, my website needs a serious update (it's been a while) but here you go http://dreamsorcerer.com

    All three are wonderful sculpts. You have a love of fantasy and it translates very well into your work.

    I especially enjoyed the way you've chosen to accessorize your sculpts with hair, fur, and even - quite impressively - metal armor. They help to create a OOAK feel. I'm certain the photographs don't do all the details justice.

    Of the three, I have to admit the dragon is my least favorite. While it's no less impressive than your other examples (and you've really captured the spirit of the original print it was taken from), it just doesn't punch me in the gut like your Centaur or Minotaur. I do look forward to seeing more.

    Thank you for noticing the accessorizing! I remember looking through this doll book and the best thing in it was this Japanese Samurai, with detailed fabric, fine hair and weaponary all presented beautifully in a posh looking box. It made me think about how the little details can do so much to a sculpture. The thing is, I'd have a hard time making a mould from them! But these are purely one offs. And as for the armour, I really have to do better next time. I could've done a way better job.. but I suppose I'm still learning!

    And I appreciate your honesty. It's always interesting and helpful to hear what people really think. Someone I know doesn't like any of my sculpts! Mind you, she likes pink and fluffy stuff.

    Again thank you for your time, and kind words.

    Good grief Kenshiro, these are absolutely brilliant!! I remember seeing your dragon before
    (which is still, by the way, a fantastic piece), but now your Minotaur and Centaur have
    just blown me away!! The concepts for both are just perfect and all the mixed media you've
    added just takes them above and beyond the original sculpt itself. Really amazing job dude.
    I can't wait to see your next one.

    Hey Matthias,

    I made the armour seperately from the main body so that when it was finished, I could then take it off when I wanted to. Accessories! So firstly, when I completed the body I took some tin foil and wrapped it on an area where there was going to be armour, then I'd wrap a very fine wire mesh around it covering the area, and then tying it together with a little bit of wire, I then covered the area with a thin layer of super sculpey, blasted it with a heat gun until it was hard, then I began sculpting the armour. After sculpting it, I baked it independantly, sanded it down a little, painted it with metallic paint, when it was dry I 'chipped' little marks into the armour then smeared some black paint on it to make it look a bit worn and battered. Voila!

    Many thanks for taking the time to look at my work and for your very kind words!

    Hey Troy,

    Whoa maaan..!!.. wonderful words from someone who is a master of the craft!!You don't know this but I've been lurking for a long time and watching every sculpting you make, I've been showing my wife all your stuff too and she's very impressed. Your wedding cake business looks fantastic, the sculpts you've done for your clients.. they're the best I've seen.. I wish that I knew you did that when I got married back in 2004!

    I had a long break from sculpting, but hopefully I will get more time soon to do more. (fingers crossed) I've got two sketchbooks: one is purely for sculpture design and anatomy reference (lots of dragons in there) and another one (which is empty) will be purely for illustration purposes.

    And I'm really grateful dude.. I am left speechless and I have no idea what to say. 'Thank you' just don't do it justice! But.. 'Thank you.'

    And by the way, I do hope you get nominated for your sculpts.. best of luck!
