Blood Rage: Troll

Is it just me or do I sculpt trolls a lot? This guy is for the new Blood Rage game that's to be released by Studio McVey and Guillotine Games and he was the first figure I did for the line, (the Frost Giant being second.) Since pictures have been posted on their Facebook account I'm now posting the work pictures on my blog.
I'm still on the fence about how he turned out, I'm not sure about my interpretation of the art and it's mostly the head shape that I worry about. Since there was no turn around for the head detail everything is based off of his profile regarding the shape and width of the skull and features, hopefully it's just me second guessing myself and he will be received well.
He was sculpted in Fimo, greenstuff and the human skull is a resin cast of a skull I sculpted for details like this. (I'm not sure if people realize how often I have to sculpt human skulls.) Anyway, he's  ready for Trollhammaren.

Concept art is by Adrian Smith

Blood Rage: Frost Giant

Long time, no post. But that is because I work in secret, shunning the light of day and company of people so that I may bring you THIS! ...But only once it's officially announced. A few days ago the Facebook page for the new game, "Blood Rage" went up and now I can talk about it and post pictures.
This guy was one of four figures Mike McVey asked me to sculpt for the game and I think one of the ones that turned out the best.

I included a Zombicide survivor figure in with the last picture for a scale reference so it might help with questions on just how big he is. He was sculpted using mostly Fimo and was finished up May of this year. As you can see from the concept art he is stomping through some deep snow and I needed to extrapolate that part of the anatomy to sculpt his feet (not that big of a deal) but also try to capture that, "I'm standing on a mountain" feel that he has, so having one leg perched on a rocky crag seemed the best approach to that. 

Here is a last set of pictures showing off the progression of the sculpt, probably not that interesting but who knows?

Concept art by Adrian Smith.

Little sins

I'm not sure what the official name for these guys are so my nicknames for them have been, "Hound" for Wrath...

...And "Meatball" for Glutton.

These guys are smaller then any of the major sins as you can see by the Zombicide figures I included for scale. I can't share the concept art since it hasn't been released to the public yet but I'll post it when it is.
So, ummmmm... Yeah. That's pretty much it. Sculpted in Fimo and greenstuff.

Wrath of Kings: The Mighty Taur

Those of you might recognize the concept art from the Wrath of Kings Kickstarter and it looks like the resin demo pieces were being shown at Gencon so here are pictures of the original sculpt...

Sculpted in Fimo, greenstuff along with aluminum rod, pewter tubing and metal chain.

The Others - 7 Sins: Wrath

Edit: Since MR. Adrien Smith has posted the art for this guy on his Facebook account, I'll post the picture here so you guys can see it too. This was the art I worked off of to make this figure. Daunting, yes?

Since Gencon is now over and pictures have been leaked I can finally show some pictures of some of the projects I've been working on the past year. I got sent the artwork for this guy around August of last year I think and was blown away to find out I'd be working from art by Adrien Smith! I mean, that's like a totally incredible thing for me. I've enjoyed his work for years, practically decades and when I was just beginning to sculpt had always wanted to do figures of GWAR after seeing the cover to Violence Has Arrived. 
I'm guessing Mr. Remy Tremblay was taking a break because I can't think of any other plausible reason why they would trust me with this. He's done an amazing job on all the other figures for the line and if you want to see the "greens" for those figures check out his blog...

Anyway, here are some pictures of the sculpt. I'll see if everybody is OK with me posting the original art and the paint job on the studio figure is by Mr. Vincent Fontaine. 

Figure was sculpted in Fimo and for once it's not blue.
