Wellll, you know it's bad when you have to start digging through your folders scrambling to find something new to post.
It's a shame, but almost everything I've done lately has to be kept secret for many more months. But, I did find I hadn't posted this on here, so some of you that haven't seen it can get a gander.
This was done years ago, at this point, prior to when I started seeking out work. I really loved the Sky Captain movie, simple as it is, and I figured I'd try to cut my teeth in sculpture with those characters. I only got as far as this and an unfinished Jude Law, but it was a great exercise in sculpture, and a time consuming challenge.
She was sculpted in 1/6 scale in Castilene wax, prior to when that stuff started getting mixed wrong. The gun in her holster is not sculpted by me, I just bought a 1/6 scale pistol that looked about right. Lazy, but I have no talent/skill/ nor patience for mechanical sculptures.
God bless those who do! haha!
The top shots are a resin casting of the finished sculpture. Mike Allen over at Forbidden Zone [link]
helped me get her cast up, thank you Mike! The bottom, fully painted shot, was done by Stephen Parke, a great artist [link]
So enjoy this ancient work! thanks for looking.
