By the way, you've been really busy haven't you? I only have like a handful of sculpts and there's you knockin' em out like there's no tommorow! I have no idea how you do it! Genius.
His work is phenomenal, beautiful texture and painting. I love your Minotaur.
You're the clever dude who made that very excellent troll aren't you? Can't wait to see more from you! And thank you very much for your kind words mate, I don't think I deserve such kind praise! The painting takes me a long time, sometimes it takes a few attempts until I get it looking right! And as for the Minotaur, I really want to do another one because I'm not sure I like it anymore. In fact I said to my wife last night, 'this is s##t isn't it?' There are just too many things wrong with it!
Thank again and best wishes!
It's getting there.. Well, slowly but surely me thinks.
Notice that I put spikes in his head (which is made from balsa wood) Whilst making a scupt I always like to 'add' small details to the sculpture during the process, because I want it to 'look like something'.. even though I have to take them out and put them back in every so often. It's also like a guide, to make sure I am putting everything where it should be.
OMG this is looking so great Keshiro!!!! Awesome work, loving the spikes!
Double post sorry...
wow, I love it!! Are the spikes made out of wood btw?
Texture and scales look brilliant my friend. You continue to amaze, Kenshiro. Keep it up!!!
What I really enjoy about this - and the rest of your work - is that it has a strong "signature" to it. This has such a similar feel to your centaur piece that had I seen them next to each other, it would've been very easy to determine they were from the same artist.
As I've said previously, the face has all kinds of energy and intensity. I detect an Asian-influence that's worked its way into the design. This time around, the scales around the shoulders are just terrific. They certainly add to the aggressive and draconian nature of the beast. A flat collection of scales would've lost some of the savagery I believe you're after. A great choice.
... a cry went up into the shuddering air, and faded to a shrill wailing, passing with the wind, a voice bodiless and thin that died, and was swallowed up, and was never heard again in that age of this world.
holy shiat!!! the detail! my eyes are bleedin'...
Looking for other Denver area artists!

That's quite the awesome dragon man, bravo. Great work.
I really like the gentleness in the face of the chicken-dragon.
Really fun stuff.

I always enjoy reading your comments, you have a very observant eye and you notice certain details that I want people to notice, like the scales on the shoulders and inparticular the oriental influence that you find in the sculpt. You are very right my friend, because I now feel that I have achieved something! I'm usually unsure with all of my works, of whether or not it really has 'worked' for me, but I think this one I'm quite happy with. And my biggest achievent I think without even realising it, is that you say you can recognise a 'signature' in my sculpts, a style even that you can tell it's from one artist. Now that is a big thing to me. Many thanks for your feedback, words of encouragement and continous support.
Exceptional sculpture as always, I can’t wait to see this one finished. I love how much detail goes into your sculptures and concept drawings.
Wow, truly amazing! I love the amount of detail, the scales are great!! Btw, are any of your sculptures for sale? I probably wouldn't afford one anyway, but I'd love to have one, especially one of your dragons, they are absolutely exceptionally amazing!! Keep up the great work, can't wait to see more! oh, and about the wood, you don't have any problems baking it do you? (I assume that you don't, since you've already used that method before and are continuing with it)
Wow, This reminds me how beautiful sculptures can be.
The sculp has a nice expression. It truely tells a story.
Your detail is awesome. Thanks for the beautiful art moment
Ah thank you You're very supportive and I appreciate it very much. And you're not the only one who's asked me if they're for sale. I'm afraid they're not for sale at the moment, they're purely one offs and I'm using them for a book that I'm writing. I just hope someone one day will publish it!
And as for the balsa wood, what I do is I make them, put them in, carry on sculpting (because I need them as a guide) then take them out, bake the sculpt, then put em back in again! Is that confusing or what? But it works well in the end!
Jaw dropping, as is everything that's been posted by you here, keep on it! Looks wonderful, really impressive energy radiating from his whole pose and expression.
It's starting to not give me that "Falcor Likes to Eat Babies" look, more demon-ish as the details and spikes come into play. :-P
Here I am making scales, I'm using a small paddle shaped dental tool to flatten, shape and squash to make each scale. Notice that before making the scales, I 'draw' a kind of grid/mesh to guide me through the process. The scales are a bit messy at the moment and incomplete but I thought you guys maybe interested in seeing how I make scales.
