    Looks really good so far - interesting pose - give us your thoughts about choosing this pose for the main character (apart from: it makes his chest looks good ;-)

    Looking good. Great faces and anatomy, but I would personally define the hero's pecs a bit more. .

    Thanks. It is ineed sculpted in wax. It's basically castilene mixed with carnuba and a few other things. I wanted to sculpt something proud and powerful. Hopefully I pulled it off. Should have this wrapped up next week.

    Looks awesome. Now, I'm not exactly the master of anatomy, but I also think his pecs should be a bit more defined, might just be the light/angle, but it reads just a little confusing to me. Other than that it's amazing.

    Finally finished this thing. Made it's debut at Wonderfest in Kentucky. I cleaned up the casting and painted it in two days. No sleep and then drove 13 hours straight from NJ to Kentucky with my buddy Dave Silva. Insane! More pics to follow...

    Wow that's crazy man, I have never sculpted before, but I wish I knew the basics of how it works. Do you mind saying a few words about the tools you use, the wax you buy and how to prepare everything for sculpting and then paint? I'm not trying to pressure you, but if you made a tutorial it would be awesome awesome AWESOME.

    Great sculpt, and it sounds like you were under pressure,{ quite often that's the catalyst for genius,} I for one am happy that you DID NOT bulk up the hero, I am so tired of the over built dudes with totally unreal muscles. Real heros are seldom body builders.....just my experience and opinion and proably worth about 2 cents....but I loved your sculpt, great job.....now , get some sleep and dream of large women.

    My advice to anyone getting started with sculpting is to entirely ignore detail in the beginning. I suggest using soft oil based clay or sculpy and working in 1/4 scale. Focus all your effort on basic proportions and anatomy. Try to find the basic geometry in the figure. Don't jump in to a pose that's too complicated. Nothing wrong with the old 'contrappasto.' Work from life whenever possible. Study anatomy in tandem with your sculpting. Keep in mind; without a solid anatomical and proportional foundation, it won't matter how much detail you pile on, the sculpt will look weak. The point is, that when you start getting comfortable with anatomy, proportion, and composition, all the superfluous detail stuff will fall in line behind this. Sculpting anatomy and portraits is much harder than sculpting a belt. LOL

    An amazing looking sculpture. It's nice to see someone use real anatomy on a figure and not some over-exagerated muscle man. They both look like real people, living and breathing. Great composition, Great anatomy, Great details... Just Great!!

    Cheers!!

    Thanks guys. And don't forget... the results you get from your work are entirely dependent on the amount of effort you invest.
