Hello all, I'm a newcomer to this forum... This is also my first sculpture showing of any kind.
Long story short...I am a freelance artist who likes to make Halloween props. Someday, (maybe) I may mold and cast these...Someday, I may finish them! Both are oil-based clay over a plastic skull armature.
Critiques, and feedback welcomed.
Also feel free to view my sketchbook
This is some great stuff!
I love making zombies,there so much fun!
Would love to see these painted, with some blood and gooo
I appreciate the comments. Zombies are fun,dammit!
Originally I was going to cast a latex, mask to put over my full-sized creations , (skulls, static standing figures) and then I saw some really good paper-mache stuff, some people were doing, and thought I might try that instead.
Bye the way, I really like your Count figure. The paint job in particular is superb, as is the costume. Great stuff!
Zombies - in any shape and material - make me happy. As a Halloween enthusiast, I'm a fan right out of the gate. The first one appears to have all the rotted, time-worn elements of a classic zombie head. That would certainly keep the kids from stumbling up to your door too quickly.
As for the second one, I like the Voodoo-Hoodoo aspects of it. Feels a bit like a shrunken head that was interrupted in the midst of its processing. Can you take some clearer pictures of this one? I'd love to see some of the details, but the image is just a tad bit fuzzy. Certainly it adds to the horror of the piece, but I'd like something to study in my clinical fashion.
I agree with the intensity of the papier-mâché props that are being put together anymore. I check in with both Pumpkinrot (who has an excellent Halloween-themed blog) and My Ghoul Friday routinely.
If you've not discovered Season of Shadows, I highly recommend checking him out too.
... a cry went up into the shuddering air, and faded to a shrill wailing, passing with the wind, a voice bodiless and thin that died, and was swallowed up, and was never heard again in that age of this world.
Thank you for the kind words, KingUnicorn.
I am familiar with Pumpkinrot and My Ghoul friday.
Good stuff on both. I'll have to check out the other one though.
I know the first round of pics were fuzzy, so I took some new ones of the Shrunken Head. I know KU in particular wanted to see clearer pics. These are WIPs, but any suggestions, or critiques are welcomed and encouraged as always.
Looks good to meThe mouth looks freakkkkkyyyy
Whens my painted one coming?
Thanks, Bongsplat. I haven't worked on this one lately (been mostly focused on trying to better my drawing skills), but maybe posting here will put a fire under my lazy butt, and I can get these finished.
These next pieces are made of pink construction styrofoam, (of the home improvement store variety) wire in foam fingers, for articulation, covered first in liquid latex, then, painted with acrylics, latex house paint, and finally a layer of acrylic varnish. This was more of a learning experience than anything else. I was practicing some foam sculpting mainly.
