    Hulk Conversion and other sculpting attempts...

    I really loved the Planet Hulk series of graphic novels and was inspired to make the Green Scar. I took a Marvel Heroscape Hulk and stripped the paint. Then I shaved off the ragged pants and started adding the gladiator outfit with Green Stuff and Procreate. The last photo is the final painted version.

    This was the beginning for me - next it was my first full figure!!!

    That is badass!
    I wish the axe was silver/boltgun metal on top (the choppy part) to add contrast.

    How does green stuff work? I am guessing it dries by itself as you sculpt, because you can't put plastic statues into the oven as far as I can guess.

    jaroldsng - Thanks man!

    Pavel - Thanks - glad you like it. Kneadatite (Green Stuff) is an epoxy originally invented for plumbing purposes. Matter of fact I have fixed my toilet with it! But, mixed about half yellow and half blue gets you ~1.5 - 2 hours work time and no need to bake. It also can be mixed with a tiny bit of Super Sculpey firm for another good couple hours work time.

    Here is my very first full sculpt. It is a Indiana Jones inspired figure (obv) and man does it have some problems!! The clothes are all wrong, hats too small or head too big or both, surfaces aren't as smooth as they should be.. etc etc. But instead of scrapping or getting frustrated with it I just continued on and finished which, for some odd reason I can't fathom, is a very difficult thing for me to do. Anyway, he's 32 mm to the eyes...

    that Planet Hulk mod is awesome!! An I like your Indy too.
    I'm glad you pushed through and finished him - good man!
    It's hard sometimes, and it is also a weakness of mine, but it is the only way to learn!
    You know what the problems are with him, but now you can learn from those and improve on the next one.

    Thanks Deon!

    So... those two pieces were last year. Then a friend of mine had an idea for a board game with mice figures and I offered to make one to help him visualize. Here was the result finished up about January. 22mm to the eyes and while I knew I still had a long way to go I was happy that this one was better quality than Indy - yay progress!!...

    Wow... Love the armor on the hulk fig. The "Indy," is very cool, but the mouse is just bad to the bone. Love it. Cool little guy.

    Thanks Mah'!!

    The mouse inspired my friend to complete his game design - and the publisher commissioned some sculpts from me. I should be able to post them soon!

    Superb mod on the hulk figure, looks 100 times better than the original

    and I freakin love that mouse...really strong sense of character to him.

    Oh and thanks for the tip on mixing sculpey with the putty, I never knew that!

    Thanks man!!

    Sure - its a great thing if you need some extended time. Just keep it between 10-25% and be sure to mix a tiny bit of vasaline too. I usually knead the vasaline into the Sculpey first and then clean my fingers and mash it into a fresh batch of GS.

    Well fooey.... I've been asked to not post my last commission for a while. It was 10 figures and I just finished it last week. So in order to keep improving I think I'll post a WIP. Haven't actually taken pics of the model yet which is about 40% done - but here is the concept art that I drew up. I need this one to be good cuz its an audition piece - so once I get the WIP pics up please dont hold back on the crits, please.

    Til I come up with a better name here's the drawing for "Gunslinger Chick"

    Here's my first couple WIP pics for my gunslinging gal...

    man - on a 28mm fig taking pictures like this and seeing things so close really brings out the errors. Things I'm happy with are the boots and the belts. not happy with the holsters or her hips I think she need to be a bit narrower in the waist. Anyway - severe crits welcomed.
