    Bram Stoker Tribute Bust

    This is a project I recently finished. It is a Black Heart's Bram Stoker Tribute Bust. He is done in wax and stands 13" tall. It was a pretty involved piece and a good challenge. http://www.blackheartmodels.com/

    Thanks for looking
    Mat

    Amazing indeed! Is it sculpted directly in wax, or is it a casting?

    Thanks people! The way I approached this was breaking it down into a bunch of small sculpts. And then I fused them together and cleaned it up to look like a solid piece. That is the nice thing about working with wax.

    Matt, seeing the holes in the sculpt, in the wips, reminds me of those old chocolate Easterbunnys that were hollow, { as a kid that is}. So that's how you do it...pretty smart for a white man. I like the way you have made a collage sculpture. Very smart. By the way the robes and their folds on the V-babes looked top notch, almost classic to say the least. I have never tried wax, but it does look interesting. Again ...really nice work.

    Thanks!!

    Now when I look at this all I'm going to see is a giant chocolate Stoker, thanks Mah ' Crub. After I sealed this up some wax chunks where locked in side, making this a large decorative maraca.

    Working this way had lent it self well to moving things around to find a good flow. I tried to blend design elements as much as I could. So things will morph into one another. Another reason I chose to do it this way is so that I could hold each piece in my hand and work them. It would have been very cumbersome to work it as a giant thing.
