Ok here's a sculpt I recently completed of Jamie Thomas. It's in plastic now. The Base and the skateboard are still very rough. The resin needs to be cleaned up a bit and painted. And my 4 megapixel point&shoot needs to be tossed out. Ok that's enough excuses for now. FRONT SIDE SMITH GRIND BITCHES!!!

dude the movement is perfect! like you captured a moment in time. really nicely done. who need a camera when you can just sculpt the pic? lol
keep up the good work!
Thanks for the kind words. There's always room for improvement. I seriously do need a better camera. I hate the way that the crappy ones distort the image so much. Like you look at the photo and the hand is 2X bigger than the head. People will think I skipped all the proportion lessons in school! ROFL!!!
Great work - really really crisp.
Unfortunately the distortion is mostly perspective coming into effect because you're too close, so a better camera won't necessarily help that much. The trick I use is to zoom in as much as possible and move backwards until I get the shot I need. This flattens the perspective and sorts out most cases of big-hand syndrome

Wow, that's a fantastic sculpt! Really wonderful.

you really captured the moment well! How big is it? Where u planning on painting it?
IF the figure was standing up straight he'd measure 12" from his heel to the the top of his head. Yes it's getting painted.
