Cast it in a Basic Alpha plaster mixed with a Plaster Polymer (acrylic / PTFE resin) and then laminated the casting with glass fiber, seems pretty strong and light and gives a good surface.
DIMAGYAN yep I agree with what you say, the shoulders looking at them again are a little weird, unfortunately I have a tendency to concentrate on the face a bit to much and then rush the other bits. Really wasn't happy with that arm caused me a few problems.
I've reduced the head size on the last image (reposted) and I think it does look better, thanks

Really nice last post, I like the design of the whole thing and how everything flows really nicely. The blade coming out of the bottom might be slightly crooked though, you might want to take another glance at it.
Hey there, great sketchbook. Last time I visited, none of the images in this thread showed, but now it's workin'. Glad they show now, otherwise I'd missed some good stuff. I'd be interested to see more traditional sketches/paintings/whatnot. No need to hide them, you're a great sketcher...
Thanks Taxman, I'll get round to posting some more traditional stuff just have to dig some up, cheers allso for the heads up about the non showing images , I guess that's a probem with using photobucket as an image host, I'll spend some time at the weekend and shift it over to using the attachment manager here.
The next image is more a WIP, I've never posted in the finsihed section so I thought I'd do something that would be my first post there. Done it in grey scale to get the values then I'll colour it (saw this technique in a tutorial somewhere).

Great variety of really cool images. You've definitely got skills. I enjoy your monsters the most, particularly the marine beasties.
Perhaps, with this last one, make the differences even more apparent between the soldiers/workers, as, atm, it looks more like a female/male comparison; if that sweet horned head floating above em were the head of the soldiers, it'd be all it needed, just a little touch-o-something
