I've got plenty of works in progress to update you all on - so much so that I have broken it up into two parts....possibly three...
To those of you that are not familiar with my custom work, I sculpt within the 1:18 scale - roughly equivalent to the 3.75" Star Wars/GI Joe figures Hasbro produces. "Roughly" because I use the scale originally taken by Kenner's POTF line back in the early 90's when the Star Wars figure line was being rejuvinated....and it seems that scale has reduced over the years but I've tried to remain consistent.
I began working with Super Sculpty but quickly turned to AVES FIXIT sculpt and have been hooked ever sence. FIXIT has a limited work time...about 4 hours...afterwhich the mixture begins to cure and limits the workability. For this reason, I work in small amounts at a time...piece by piece..so that I can get the most detail without being rushed. Because of this, I work with many...and I mean many subjects at one time...each at it's own pace with it's own challenges. This keeps me interetsed in my work and helps stimulate my creativity without the worry of burnout or bordom.
Alright..ENOUGH! On with some of my Works in Progress..
Jedi K'Kruhk from Dark Times...WIP
Harll from Star Wars Republic..(yes, I spelled it wrong in the image...sue me LOL! )
Choka Skell Yuuzhan Vong Warrior from Star Wars Legacy - Early WIP...
and finally for part one...a parting shot if you will...from my Deliah Blue WIP...
She's still got a lot of work to be done! The head sculpt has to be redone and the joint work is being updated...but this shot was just too cool to pass up!
Stay tunes for more WIP next week- as always, more images of the customs you see here are available on my Flickr photostream...check it out!
I will be adding additional commentary to my WIP images on Flickr so be sure to check that out as well.
Thanks for your continued interest in my work! Comments and suggestions are always appreicated!
