Hello there! Welcome to my little blog. I won't post every day at this place - but while posting and sharing my hobbies in various forums I was asked for a place where I show all of my work and not just specific pieces. You will find WIPs of actual projects and pieces that are already finished.
Hello there - here is an older kit again.
I got an old Wolverine 1/6 model Kit on the bay.
some may know it:
Well, I began building it up. I made some modifications with the suit and he gets a complete new Headsculpt. I wanted to unmask him. :-) The new head is roughly inspired by Hugh Jackman.
Head, Belt, leather-like tiger stripe applications, leather texture on boots, folds in the suit, new movie-shaped claws - and I decided to make him stomping on his demaged mask. Like it. :-)
It is done at last.
Here are the pics of my finished 1/4 Alex Ross Premium Format Superman Statue.
It is quite impressing with it's height of almost 23 inches.
Now I am fully satisfied with it and so I can begin new projects.
Jan 8th 2012 Paintjob is in progress:
"Big Blue" is getting blue again.
Jan 4th 2012
Sculpting is almost done now.
Needs more color. :)
Jan 3th 2012
The new cape parts are almost done. Sanding means a lot of dirt...
While I still missed a quantum of dynamic I broke up his neck and made it new. So his head is more bowed now. I renewed his wrists, too. So the fist is now buckled in the typical Alex-Ross-Superhero way.
Here is my lastest work - Temple Of Doom Indiana Jones as a 1/6th scale statue.
It is based on the classic Horizon kit but I made a new chest area, shirt, shoes, whip, right arm and - of course - head. Well, I guess almost everything is new.
I have just finished my latest project – transferring an old MOTU Mini comic cover into
a 40" x 32" sized oil painting on canvas.
I really love the pre-filmation comics and KOCG is my all-time-favorite cover.
As a fan of the original old-style box arts done by Rudy Obrero or William George and so I try to give it that look.
Here is the old original cover from 1983 - old fans of MOTU surely know it:
taken from he-man.org
And here is the result. The finished painting is riddled with little hommages to some of my favorite arts and artists like Boris Vallejo or the original Battle Cat box art.
2009 - After Heath Ledger's outstanding job I wanted to prize it just fairly: by a new 1/6 scale statue in my collection.
The materials: Super Sculpey, Apoxie Sculpt and Resin, witch I poured in thin layers onto the inside of the coat - just to give it more stability. The Knife is made of Apoxie, the Card and the Money has been printed and the chain is made of... well - chain. *grin*
Sculpting the Hair was really difficult... I decided to add very thin chips i scraped off a plastic sheet to make it more struggly.
The paintjob wasn't easy. I used some decals for the shirt, but painting the pinstripes on his trousers (freehand) took three hours...
Here is another "little" piece of my collection - a huge He-Man on his Battle Cat.
I know there may be some hardcore fans who would say "Battlecat's mask is not correct"... blah blah... Guess what? I know that.
The design is based on the classic line but I made various things in an own interpretation.
Longer haircut for the man, the mask of Cat is a mix between the old and
the 200x one, the arm-accessiores are designed totally different. The
small bag at He-Man's belt in the 200x series was a good idea in my
opinion, but I would not like it to dangle in front of my balls. So I
put it at the hip.
More sensible will be the fact that I gave some reins to the tiger.
Well - I think it is an animal and the LotR Warg was quite a good
example for my idea.
While working on the TNG Crew I re-do my Kaiyodo C-3po Kit. I just bought a promising metallic gold colour named "Goldfinger". The effect is great enough to clean up that old figure. Once stripped the kit I am actually accurating the too slim head shape with apoxie.
