‘Votive of the Dreaming One’, and more!

Just finished up two new Lovecraft pieces. I really loved working on the ‘Votive of the Deep One’, and decided to do some more, but wasn’t sure were to start. Based on some suggestions, I decided to do Cthulhu, and another Great Old One that is new to me, Chaugnar Faugn. After doing some reading, image searching, and sketching, I decided on what I wanted each to look like, and went to sculpting. They were done in about a day, and molded in about a day. Casted in the same manner as the first Votive, with bronze powder cold cast with black tinted Smooth-On 325 color matching resin.

Batman: Arkham City – Nightwing.

Yet another one of my personal projects that I’ve been working on while working on so many others.
This one is currently one of my favorites, and really hoping that I can get this one molded and cast and out to awaiting and loving cosplayers.

I loved the gritty and very realistic design work on Batman: Arkham City. While still firmly set in a fictional universe, I felt the strength of their designs made the costumes, items and some of the characters, very plausible. Well, except maybe Batman, look at those deltoids!

One favorite of mine, was Nightwing. He got a bit of an overhaul in the game, while still keeping very true to the characters current look. His face mask always caught my eye, so I thought I’d try my hand at making one. I’m still wanting to put this into a mold, but with so many different projects, I can’t feasibly fund it entirely myself just now.

Finally finished molding and casting the ‘Votive of the Deep One’, seen in my previous post.

Overall I was pleased with the initial cast, but will tweak some things to get a better ‘aged bronze’ look to it.

I am wanting to develop a lot more projects and items like this in the future, but materials can be costly, and I try to keep my prices at a reasonable and affordable amount. Sale prices like this help get my name out, and also help me build up funds as well. Any help, is always appreciated.

‘Votive of the Deep One’

Started a new piece just a few days ago, and so far it’s coming out very well.

I’ve been racking my brain on attempting to figure out more Lovecraft/Cthulhu based pieces, from idols, other tablet artifacts, anything. Sometimes, being your own boss just sucks.
Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame is an inspiration of mine, and I love that his comic style isn’t the usual norm. Each page, heck, each PANEL seems to be a stand alone piece, and he often hides little vignettes of artifacts, statues, and other little treasures, in the background or right in a separate panel.

While browsing http://www.artofmikemignola.com, I came across an image of ‘Abe Sapien’ with a curious little piece right in the middle.

I’ve been looking over my collection of Hellboy titles for inspiration, finding a little, but not enough. So that one just hit me.
So scrounging up supplies, doing my own doodles to decipher his work, I went and started a small piece.

It’s done in Super Sculpey Firm, and is 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. I plan on doing some texturing work next, and hope to have it molded and cast this weekend.

Enjoy!

Edgar Allan Poe Button.

If you recall my H.P. Lovecraft button, then this may look a little similar.

I’ve been wanting to do a series on my favorite authors, and almost actually started with Poe, but given my current residence of Providence, I had to start with Howard. I hope to do a similar wall relief for Poe as well.

Sculpted in much the same manner as the Lovecraft buttons. Wax then to a silicone mold, then to a casting in resin with metallic powders.

Were-Whale!

I noticed that with all my commissions and other projects, I haven’t really worked on something for ‘myself’.
While I love classical horror monsters, like The Mummy, Dracula, and obviously, Wolfman, I always loved the idea of other creatures that go the line as the Were-Wolf.

What about a Were-Squirrel, or a Were-Gecko?
Or…a Were-Whale!!!

So, here he is so far!
