I kind of done my own thing with the glass bits.. they are meant to be gems. In the movie, he has all this shit over his armor, lots of gold and gems/diamonds ect.. But I couldn't find anything remotely close in the art store. Them damn green rock things cost me $15 bucks for 10 of um.. I was thinking with that alone.. its gotta look good on the sculpt haha its ok I guess.. I wish I could of found the right materials. But sometimes ya just gotta go fuck it. People get the idea. I'm supposed to add little gold balls around each gem.. I was going to try a gold chain, hoping it would work better in the castings.. But nope.. :/ So the armor is a little blah until I find the real goodies.
it looks good haha bloody expensive green rocks! I dont 4even recall what he wore in the move anymore so its fine unless you want to go splitting hairs and comparing side by side ha.mm I use micro hole less beads that are like poppy seeds very small and they are glass but come in color and silver too
They were.. ugly little bastards too, but I thought they looked good haha. The armor piece is kind of like that, its designed a little more detailed. Then below that, he wore a rob that was gold with a square design. Wish I could find that material/dress. I want to make a life size stand for it.
I should of used some beads for the other details. *sigh* can you move closer so I can harass you in finishing my work more finally tuned? haha
you can get all sorts of mosaic glass and vintage glass cabochon on etsy at good prices man. id sure like to see you do I dunno similar decked out monsters.maybe your own creature designs. only cause you dont see glass on models,but it lends some change of texture. if you have a printer you can make stencils from this product called photo ez. any black and white design works. its not that cheap but you can make your own custom fabric patters using acrylic paints. there also a lazertran paper for prints on silk. if you want a full color fabric print in a small scale. hah sure Id be honored to do that.
Fantastic work on his slit throat! That's really cool how you added the ridges on the palate inside his mouth, too; a lot of people would just have skipped over that detail. I really love the design of his collar. Makes me think of something you'd see in the 'ancient history: tribal art' section at a museum.
Ha ha ha... I hear ya on the paint thing. I'm far more of a noob, since I've only ever painted two of my own pieces. I want to do more of it and get better, but I can't help but be intimidated. Or at the very least, I feel that if I can't do the job as good as want to be, it's better to hire someone else to paint it for me.
That is crazy, only 2 pieces? I wish I could of got away with that earlier on. But nobody would by my stuff if it wasn't painted haha. I been painting as long as I have been sculpting. I can do an ok job I guess. Just never worked with metal paint really. I done a commission about 4 years back for some metal hands, that turned out terrible! Never worked with gold and one thing I noticed about painting with metal paints, don't use a brush, cause it looks like shit hahah. But its really my only way to go, cause I can't keep a straight line for the life of me, and there is a lot of sharp lines to follow. We'll see how it goes. Hope you paint some more of your pieces in the future, they are killer works!
Ha ha... Straight lines are a bitch!! I'm gonna try painting the newest werewolf I did. I figure that shouldn't be too hard. So far, I just painted my Batman bust and the Chris Walken as Han Solo, piece. I really want to do more of it, so I can be a bit more of a one stop shop for clients. I hate getting close to landing a job and then they ask if I can paint it as well, and I have to say no. Although now I've learned to say yes, and I just subcontract it anyway.
Keep doing the great work man, it's really nice to see.
Werewolves are always fun to paint. I'll keep an eye out for it when you do paint it. That is my goal as well, one stop shop. I know a bit of everything, just not great at any of it haha. But its enough to fool people
You to man, the feeling is mutual and I look forward to the stan winston video. I subscribed to them recently and hope your video shows up before my sub expires. I'll have to re-new and go back to eating cherrio's without the honey and noodle soup without the seasoning.. I hate that shit! hahah
