    New Project Work in Progress

    Hi there,

    Thought i'd share some w.i.p with you. This is a reworking of an idea i came up with a few years ago. At the moment im still blocking in the figure but thought i'd show it to you now to see if anyone spots anything ive missed. Obviously shes still very rough! Ive slightly exagerated the pose from the original photo to give it a bit more movement. Im doing her with Sculpey Firm - its ok but very.....bitty, if that makes sense. It kind of crumbles very easily. Its ok but its a bit of a pain. The idea is that she'll be holding a rifle of some sort in her right hand hiding behind her leg. Ive also stuck up some colour ideas ive been doing. As you can see the colour will affect the outcome of the character quite massivley! She'll either look like a sci fi pole dancer, sexy stormtrooperess or a futuristic kind of motorcycle racer (but without a bike cos she's got a jetpack). Let me know what you think. Suggestions for a name are welcome also. At the moment shes just Jetpack girl...which is rubbish!

    Cheers

    Hi,
    No new sculptures at the mo but some are on the way. Thought i'd show you this that got sent to me today. Still waiting to get some nice stills of the armour so in the meantime this little mock up that one of the guys did will have to suffice. Theres also a link to some more footage that ive edited together the other night.



    Enjoy!

    Yeap i really like the your steps here from a rendering to sculpture to full scale model.

    Really nice work. But you just put yourself in trouble now....We expecting step by step photos and explanation how to make the full armor....because deep inside we are all jealous and we want one too

    Quick update

    Hi,
    Work has had me busy & kept me from my personal projects for the last month now, so theres not alot to see yet! She's had a bit of a reworking since the last pics & has got the beginings of a jet pack. Im hoping to get quite a bit done on her this week.

    Cheers

    Sculptingmonsters610 - yep it is a Saurus Warrior. He's on a shelf in my mums garage. I might dig him out next time im there.
    Some more wip of the JetPack lady. Still no arms but im just getting the suit sorted first. Jetpack is still just blocked in at the mo & im toying with the idea of giving her a scarf & hat...........
    Let me know what you think.
    Cheers

    Added a bit more detail to the body. Just need to tidy it up a bit & sort out her head. Then i can give her arms, sort out the backpack & accesories & see whats what! Any comments or ideas welcome. Thanks for looking.

    Hi Sarah,
    Funny thing is i dont actually know how much they ended up costing!! The guys i made them for kept all the money to themselves & their budget was forever changing to the point where i think they were just pulling random numbers out of the air. I just told them what i needed & they got it.
    Off the top of my head & VERY roughly:
    Clay - £25....i used about 4 or 5 bags. Less than 1 for the helmet, about 2 or 3 for the torso & another for the groin, shoulders & walling up etc for molding.
    Silicone...we used 2 tubs which were about £200 each, so £400
    Fibreglass....i have no idea what they spent but i think it was about £200
    Alluminium Filler....to make it metallic.....i got through about 4 tubs of this stuff. £25 each so £100 (shitman!)
    Then theres stuff like strapping, cable ties, lining, various glues, paints, tubes etc etc......i spent at least £150 on these things & bits & pieces along the way.
    So far then thats about £875. Then theres stuff like brushes, disposable gloves, mixing sticks, monocups, so say about £50.
    I know they DID spend £400 on motorcycle armour to go underneath my sculpted stuff ( i was there for that). And finally the torches on the shoulders were £25 each......£75.
    So the roughly estimated grand total is £1,400 ($2,271.99 if youre american). Originally 6 suits & helmets were cast but i only ended up having to complete 3 of them & there was still plenty of fibreglass stuff left to make at least 5 more suits. Hope that answers your question! Im bored of maths now. I need to finish my sculpture.
