    Concrete wave

    Just finished this for a skateboard magazine. No you wouldn't ride a 44 inch pintail in transition but I had my orders! haha Anyway it was fun... except for the base. That was a royal pain. It's 20 inches tall. The figure is 1/6 scale. As usual - sculpted in wax, molded in silicone, cast in urethane, painted with acrylics, fabrication with styrene and wood. All work done by me including decals/paint/photography/cursing/swearing/throwing stuff.

    Oh and the editor of this magazine is really in to the golden section (thus the decal on the deck) I'm sure it has something to do with 'the perfect wave'. Makes sense I guess.

    That's truly amazing. I love the little details of the blood, scabs, and scars. At first I thought that this was a picture.

    Truly professional work! Great sence of motion and mind blowing details How is it connected to the base (the "wave")?

    I can feel the force of gravity and balance of the sculpture in my stomach. It is really well done.

    Yeah, man. That is a tight sculpture.

    Best sculpture I have ever seen here, seriously.

    Wow man thats a huge compliment considering how many super talented people post their work here. Thanks! The sculpture will be on permanent display at a skateshop in Brooklyn after March 11th. I'm pretty excited about it!

    This is an unbelievable achievement! There is a great sense of movement and balance! The little details are fantastic, love the scabs, and there is even an extra worn out are on one of his back jean pockets from wearing his wallet in there.

    I am wondering a few things though:
    How did you get the "concrete wave" logo onto his shirt? Did you paint it manually with a brush?

    How is the scateboard attached to the halfpipe?

    How did you make the helmet?

    Thanks so much for sharing

    Thanks Pavel. The helmet is a modified 1/6 scale football helmet from another figure that I had. I think in the future I will model helmets and skateboards parts with 3d programs like Maya. It's much easier than doing it by hand.
    The skateboard is simply glued to his feet. The whole figure is supported by a 1/4" brass rod that you can see in his right foot if you look closely at the second picture in post #2.
    The Concrete Wave logo is a decal. The owner of the company e-mailed me the file and I scaled it down in Photoshop. Then I printed it on water transfer decal paper with my laser printer.

    Smile

    I'm beyond caring if this seems like shameless self promotion. haha I've been sculpting skateboarders for over three years now so to see something really cool happen with one of them is totally awesome for me. Magazine cover! wooohhoooo

    This is an amazing piece of work! I just recently did a skateboard sculpt too... It was a surprisingly fun project.
    I take my hat off to your attention to detail and the way you captured the energy of the action.
    nice!

    Pardon my asking but where can I find good tuts on painting sculptures with acrylics? That paint job seems to be really good! I want to be that good.

    statueforum.com has a lot of good info. I like to take my time with painting figures. It's pretty tedious work. Much like sculpting you have to think a few steps ahead make it all work. There aren't any tricks to my approach. I rarely ever use paint right out of the bottle. And I don't have super expensive paint either. I custom mix almost every color. Even the white isn't really pure white. I airbrush as little as possible. I use a lot dry brushing and washes. Lots of trial and error. I also spent years painting traditionally with oils so I have an understanding of color. My advice is to start simple and take your time.
