Such a great, dynamic pose. Would love to know what kind of clay you use, if you haven't mentioned that already.

Mike Feeney said...

Looks Great!!!
Where did you get the little gun?

Kristen McCabe said...

brilliant! Wonderful shapes in this.

lookin' pretty f'in' sweet

Process Junkie said...

Chris, Bobby, Kei, Rodney, Pedro, Kristen, Tooninator: Thank you for your kind comments.

Reynes: Heh, heh!
Wyahangas are the best!
BTW, I did not get your last email until today. I sent you the books last week, you should be getting them any day now.

Meesimo: Sorry, that's as far as she went. I've already squashed her and began a new skelpt.


Mike Feeney: The gun belongs to Platoon Leader, Chip Hazard of the Commando Elite. :D



alexkirtoon: I use 4 lbs. of Roma Plastilina No. 2 Grey-Green, which I mixed with a bit of red Plastilina someone gave me a while ago. You can order this wonderful stuff online, from THE SCULPTURE HOUSE.

Besides the tools you see in the picture, I have also used a hairpin, the tip of col-erase pencils, a box cutter blade and dental floss. They don't call me freakin' McGiver for nothing :p

Por primera vez en mucho tiempo: Alberto me has dejado sin palabras, sin chistes, ni tonterías de las mias.

Hermano eres un genio. Todo un Maestro.

Un fuerte abrazo.

Process Junkie said...

Gracias David. Un abrazo para vos.

Pravin said...

Much obliged, Pravin.

Reynes said...

In case you didn't get my last email : thank you for the Shane's books, they are GREAT !

Process Junkie said...

I'm glad you like them. My pleasure, indeed.

Antonio Radovcic said...

Awesome how you transfer your drawing style to sculpting!!

Amaroo said...

This is always a great place to stop by. Wonderful work as usual, and very entertaining too :)

Process Junkie said...

Amaroo: Thanks for visiting (and for buying so many books) next time you order I'll send you a free book or maybe two.

btw Love your pug-blog, or should I call it "plug"?
:)


Antonio Radovcic : seems like a natural progression, there isn't much difference between sculpting and drawing, at least not in my head.

Thank you for commenting.

Cheers!

Process Junkie said...

sal iovine: Great idea, I'll do that next.

Dramiro: Espero que te hayas divertido en tu cumpleaños

Rodney Dollah: Mueck is crazy talented, I have one of his books. I'm not big on ultra realism of any kind but one cannot help but be moved emotionally by his work, I think it goes beyond merely mimicking reality. Thanks for the link, great find!

Sweet! Great work.

william wray said...

these sclups are really cool.

Guz said...

Man, this is some FANTASTIC sculpting! It never crossed my mind to use a hanger for the wire to pose the characters, and I have plenty of it!

What clay do you use? I use plastiline but it never dries out (and I don't like to make the mold) and SuperSculpey is way too expensive...

Wonderfully dirty beauty
Love it!
