    I sculpted this one a while ago, finally got some time to paint. He's the mascot for the old time punk band the Circle Jerks, about 10" high in this pose.









    Whatcha think?

    I think it's really good. It captures the whole slam-dancing thing! Been there. It was so fun.

    You created that from scratch?

    Quite impressive. I have not one artistic bone in my body, and that is a talent that never fails to impress me.

    Do you have a webpage with your other work?

    Scott, flip through the pages here on the general forum. he has pics of his work posted all over, he probly has about one sculpture a week posted(most unpainted). especially over the last few months. and i agree with yah, its 200 times better than anything ive ever come up with. awesome work once again! i thought your sculpting was awesome but your painting skills are way up there too!

    Absolutely fantastic! Yup...captures the flavor! I love the "frozen in motion" thing. I think that's my favorite so far because of the "movement" it has.

    I have seen the Circle Jerks as well. Boy you bring back old memories. lol

    Thanks! Yup he's from scratch. This little guy started as 2 feet of aluminum wire and a about 1 1/2 lbs of Super Sculpey clay from the craft store. It took me about 25 hours to do the sculpt (baked in stages and details added, baked added...) and about half that long to paint it (over a few days time). You can see a "how a figure starts" tutorial I made a while ago here: http://www.mordordesign.com/tutorial.htm (Warning: it's a girl statue in progress so...)

    I hope I never have to do plaid again! The secret there was using some rapidograph technical pens to lay down the fine lines. Can you believe they even have fine point, opaque white paint markers? That made life a lot easier! I still haven't tackled the paisley pattern in the bandanas... maybe someday!

    More images and different projects can be seen here: www.toyriot.com in the gallery section. I hope to finish up a few more things and get them online soon.
