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.

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.

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!

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.
August 11th, 2010 #14
Cool! I really like the WIP pics of the Gunslinger chick! Keep it up!

Cool stuff. I love seeing small scale stuff like this. That Hulk looks awesome.
The gunslinger is coming along nicely. Like you said if the hips or even just the waist was thinner I think that would help out.

Thanks for all the positive comments!! Keeps me going, it really does!
Here's an update on Gunslinger Chick. I was totally unsatisfied and I had gotten ahead of myself with the underpinning for the duster - so I removed it. Also removed the gunbelt and holsters so I could address the hip problem. So now I have widened the hips just a little and shaved down the waist. Also added the all-important boobs. Bear in mind that the breasts and stomach are still yet to be covered by a vest - thats why they are high and pushed it toward the middle. Bah! now they are looking a tad lopsided!! ick!! It'll be try #3 if I redo them... sigh....
Here also is another commission - bet ya can't guess who it is!!! Some anatomy problems and the head is a tad large but overall the client is very happy so I am not going to back up. Still to add are the hands, the crown of thorns, the INRI sign and a scenic base. Crits and Comments very much appreciated

I feel like you need to pull jesus up higher onto the cross, he looks too low. And i want to see more rib definition personally

Looking good dude. Three tries is not so bad. Females are tough, and hard to sculpt as well. Lol

lol - yeah, females are tough... Im darn near scraping this gal and restarting - Im backing up too often and shaving things down... maybe a fresh start is in order here.
I took Pavel's suggestion and added some rib definition on Jeezus - it definitely looks better. Update soon.

A common problem with jesus-on-cross sculpts/pictures is that the pectorals are too big, for jesus to have pecs that thick he would be a bodybuilder/bench-press competitor. So basically, when people are strung up by the hands, the muscles in the chest are stretched out and, unless he carries A LOT of bulk, would not be that visible. =)

I totally see what you are saying, Kab. I definitely know that I will have to pay more attention to anatomy issues. Unfortunately I dont have time to back up on this piece. It is dragging on and since the client is happy I am anxious to be done and move on, knowing that I will do it differently and hopefully better next time. Matter of fact, I have started a new piece, an orc, that will have a lot of anatomy showing so I have pulled out the Burne Hogarth for reference (which I should have done for Jesus as well). Thanks for the helpful note!

Well I finally finished this piece. It's not as grand or perfect as I'd like but I am still learning so I will log it in as part of the journey (that may never end) and hopefully the next one will be better. Don't get me wrong - I am proud of this work - I just realizethat it can be better.
And silly me - I forgot to take a picture of the final sculpt before I started painting - doh!!
