    from HELL

    Created as part of a larger concept package for a film which did not go into production. Sculpted about a year and a half ago. Original sculpture done in wax, then cast in resin. Painted by me as well in acrylics.

    and a variation of the same concept.

    Cool. Reminds me of that fungus that infects insects and bursts out of their heads.

    Whoa! Amazing details these are great!

    amazing work! is that normal SS or did you mix it up with something else? The reason i ask is that my SS is pretty soft and it's darn hard to add small details to the sculpts.

    The figure is wax, just the base is is SS.

    Thanks to everyone who offered kind remarks.

    Wow! Thats all that comes to mind. I was actually just about to start my next sculpt which kinda deals with zombie-esque, "infected" themes. Good inspiration. I might have some questions for you on techniques pretty soon.

    Post MOAR!

    Brilliant sculpture, the detail, such as the decay and muscles is superb. Hope to see more of your stuff on here. Shame the movie never got made, looks like my type of film!

    It's nice to see the great responses. Here are a few different pix. The bottom two show the piece before I added the tendrils.

    For those that wanted an explanation of the design based on the story, I'm sorry to say I can't divulge what is exactly going on since I did not write nor do I own the script. I can share my art since I designed and own it, but the particulars of what these characters portray remain with the writer.

    I suspect part of what makes them so disgusting is that there seems to be a genuineness to the way the flesh is decayed.

    What sort of reference materials do you access while making something like this? I've read some fellows make use of various clinical books in order to nail those really disgusting details.

    Maybe he has a pile of corpses in his basement?

    The "jelly" coming out of the cracks is gross, what did you use for that?

    I do have some reference on death, but most of my inspiration for this kind of work comes from DaVinci's flayed cadaver illustrations. Once you understand the anatomy making it decay convincingly is easy.

    I have looked at a lot of homicide pictures over the years, but I don't keep much of that kind of reference in my library. One thing I learned after looking at enough real life death pictures, was that absolutely nothing is off the table regarding the decay. I have seen some things that were so beyond the pale, that had I seen them in a movie I would have thought the SPFX crew went over the top. I saw a picture of a guy that literally blew his brains out. I mean he's sitting on the floor, gun at his side, blank death stare, and on the other side of the room is his brain, fully intact. His skull cracked like an eggshell and the brain just popped out and flew across the room.

    The "jelly" on the base is 5 minute epoxy, tinted with a little acrylic paint. There are several layers of different color, so if you see it in person and change the angle, the color changes almost like the way an oil slick will on water.

    ROTFLMAO!!!

    I saw The Dark Night yesterday. The SFX for Two-Face were amazing. It was so completely disgusting and heartbreaking at the same time.

    I wanted to mention that I have this paint from the Tamiya Plastic Model Company: Tamiya Color Acrylic Paint, Clear Red, X-27. It looks exactly like fresh blood. I've had it for years--can't even remember where I got it. You can use it straight up, or put it over dried model cement you've formed to look like dripping drool/blood.

    Here's a place that sells it:

    What a bizarre self-portrait. What strikes me a particularly odd are
    the teeth. William NEVER keeps his teeth in that good of shape. The
    rest of it's pretty dead-on though.

    Brilliant as always Mr. P.
