i've been browsing in this forum for quite some time, and i had my toughts about posting stuff seeing such professional works here, but i have to start somewhere... i wanna use this thread as a sketchbook kinda thing, were i post more or less often more or less finished stuff. the first one was inspired by a photo made by Mehmet Akin (not an exact copy, just liked the picture), for the second i used various photo references, and the pirate head was made after i saw the pirated from the great Andy Bergholtz (didn't try to copy it, just liked the style)

also, since i started to play with chavant clay lately, and i saw a lot of you guys make awesome traditional sculpts, i thought i post some first tests of a laser scanner i built at home (really cheap and easy way to digitalize your models for further refining, rendering or anything else inside a 3d package) i personally want to use it to take the workflow a bit away from the pc... the scanned statue (anatomy model made by Andrew Cawrse www.freedomofteach.com) could use another view from beyond to avoid bugs between the legs, also a much more detailed version could be achieved, but its only made for testing reasons. more info if you like to built an own here - http://www.david-laserscanner.com/

cool stuff! That homemade 3dscanner is amazing!
thx guys! i only made a few tests, but it seems quite usefull...
Your sculpts are amazing. I also tried to get away from the pc.
so I bought the dvd 'mastering the human head - skull ' by Andrew Carwse.
There he sculpts a skull with waterbased clay. Really cool dvd, I ve nearly finished my skull, and will post it here soon.
Does anybody know when the next dvd will be released?
'mastering the human head - muscle'
I cant await to put the muscles on my skullsculpt
thanks, im glad you like them ! i bought that one too, in fact every product they release, i hope they release the new dvd soon. i try to make a skull every other week or so, its a very good training i think.
This is some really beautiful work! I have seen your images on another site.
fantastic sculpts, great expression in the characters!
thanks a lot for the comments guys! i appreciate it!
Amazing and owesome, Dan..
its been a while lot of work, almost no free time, but i managed to finish some stuff, so I thought i post it here. hope you like them
Wow! The level of detail to these is absolutely incredible! I really love the Samurais and I think you've done a spectacular job in capturing the detail of their armour. These would make some really impressive bronze sculpts I think.
thanks, I'm glad you like them
Great stuff - but I am cringing at how hard that one Samurai is leaning on his wrist - ouch!!
Doctors heal you, Artists immortalize you.
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.

hitnrun - nah, he's a samurai, he can take it
Amazing! Simply superb sculpts.
