Hellbeard Sculpting Odyssey

Recommended Posts

Completed the warpunk gnome necromancer.
A fluffy description:
Demigods, immortal kings and extra-dimensional entities lead their forces against one another in a brutal war. The recent magic-industrial revolution sees a new scale of fighting: a war that spans the sphere with multitudes fighting and countless dead.
On the battlefields of this strange realm wizards are among the elite; the necromancers are never in short supply of ammunition. Wights flow out of deep and forgotten tombs deep beneath the ground. Skeletons burst out of the earth at the feet of the enemy. The slain, gruesome, rise again and strike their former allies. Ghoulish screams and deranged chatter follow this Mage. As the dead tear the flesh of foes, the fighting Gnomes and their allies cheer with fierce rage.

Good. Now sculpt more. MORE!! Keep up the good work too.

 

 

Love it!

 

Thanks for the encouragement. I'll start the next one shortly. There are some small fixes I'll like to do to this one that I've noticed first.

and the space marines?

 

I'll get back to my sci fi infantry shortly. I'm taking a short breather working on another project. I'll start new figures soon enough.

Much better with the new enhancements. I love the detailing on his gear.

 

Thanks so much!

 

Here's an update from my sculpting.
I started 3 1:56 sculpts - a planetFaller commander, a Warpunk orc swordsman and a planetFaller hard suit "duckling".
I'll keep working with the PC putty for the time being. The duckling I'll make mostly out of Super Sculpey Firm, I think, because it has got a large volume.
Not sure how the planetFaller commander differentiates from the other ones except his pose. Maybe some communication looking gear or a deck or something.
The orc's design is having a prominent brow, recessed chin, enlarged jaw and mouth muscles and pointed bat like ears; he will also have long hair. I think some orcs can have facial hair as well. They can be painted green, though, later on, I suppose.
The duckling is basically a big armored box with feet to locomote (via haptic controls). He'll have a main gun, a machine gun and a big shield thing that can be moved around for additional protection. There'll be some other bits and pieces. You can see them later.

The left armature is the Hard Suit.
Check out this box I'm making. It's not miniature related but it might have some sculpting associated with it.

i still wonder how you do that micro faces :rock:

I simply sculpt them very small. :D

(and follow Gene's advice/secrets).

 

Sorry for the long delay. I was out of commission with a viral sickness of some sort.

Added flak jacket, hair, ears, pocketses. I think I might re-do the side lace thing because it's not so great.

 

The design of the Orc's appearance is more humanized or mellower than what you usually meet. I just like to tell a different aspect, I suppose. Orcs were originally made (according to Tolkien lore) in the image of Elves. I wanted maybe to show that a little also.

      The thought came to me, burning-hot in my mind, that while probably no one else would ever need one, *I* could really use a great ape in mortarboard and academic robes. An orangutan for preference, given their eccentric genius and their handlike feet. Reaper already does a Cyber-Ape, but that is a violent simian, and also I want three "hands" in use rather than two.

      Here's the rough sketch, 



      and here's an armature I made late last night, compared to Orangutango. 


      I've been reading the advice posts, so I'll take it slow-ish, work in layers, and be ready to murder my darlings...

      ...is there other stuff I should be warned about? Is this a fool's errand? (yes, obviously, but can I *do* it?)

      Love to hear from y'all!

      I started a D&D campaign for my son and some of his friends, and using it as an excuse to acquire and paint some new minis. Here is my son's Tiefling sorcerer (sorceress?)The plan: We don't really like the "combat bikini" on this one, so I am going to attempt to add, well something to it. It won't be great, probably wont even look good, but hey I'm only trying to get better, so please comment, critique, advise, instruct, and what not.
      Going with a light purple skin because its for a Tiefling character, and I think purple is an interesting color to paint. Turquoise colored garments as a complimentary color, and some yellow gold metal for some contrast.

      And some color after the nip tuck. I went with blue for a base cause I'm guessing it will work better with the purple skin.
      We decided to chop the staff and try for a glass orb for the arcane focus. Any recommendations are appreciated.

      Finally to end the night with some Green stuff. I started with a "sheet" of it for the Front and Back panels. I'm going to try to add some detail tomorrow after this dries.
      Overall I don't think the cloth is laying quite right, or the size is off. Either way I hope I can fix it in the next session.

      It's the holidays, so I present to you ...
      The Day of the Dead Fairy Tavern
      "Zapata's Skull & Rose"
       
      Okay, it's hokey, but my daughter enjoys the masks and such from the Day of the Dead and as I was trying out my homemade paper clay, I started to shape the fairy garden house.  When I placed the windows where they ended up, they reminded me of a cockeyed skull and the idea was born.
       
      The List
       
      Das Air Dry Clay
      Two Plastic Bottles of different size with the bottoms cut off.
      Glue Gun and Hot Glue
      Aluminum Foil
      Painters or Masking Tape
      Cardboard for the base
      Extra Plastic from Product Packaging
      Homemade Paper Clay
       
      Construction
       
      First off, if you haven't had the chance and want to do something like this ... I do plan to make terrain, etc. using these components ... I suggest Creative Mom's YouTube channel.  Yes, it's all Fairy Homes and such but she does a damn good job on construction and design using the above components.  They are lightweight and durable and hold a solid edge if you want to use any of those cool terrain stamps many of us bought into or a mold.
       
      I hot glued the two bottles together so the cut ends are flush. I used a lot of glue to ensure that they were together solidly.  Then after measuring a terracotta pot against the cardboard round from a frozen pizza, I glued the bottles to the cardboard.  I wanted to ensure that there was space to glue the base to the pot's rim but not have the building flush to the edge.
       
      I then glued some aluminum foil to the bottles to form some shapes.  The "hat" was planned all along but it's going to be a sombrero now.  So I glued a ring of foil around the bottle top and then added foil over the ring and flattened the edges.  To strengthen the form and blend the bottleneck out a bit I used the painters' tape around the brim and across the back where the "smokestack" comes up.
       
      To help bridge in between the two bottles a bit more I added a rope of foil from the front to the back in an arc and glued it down.   Then I added more foil atop the cap of the second bottle to make it taller like and then used more foil and painters' tape to make it more of a long neck bottle.  I glued a rectangle of packaging to the front as a box window.
       
      With everything constructed, I spackled the shape with the Homemade Paper Clay.  The reason I used the Homemade Paper Clay first is that I used recycled shredded paper instead of toilet paper to make the clay so it's very, lumpy.
       

      The initial skinning of Homemade Paper Clay.
       
      The Stucco
       
      From here I wanted to apply a smoother surface for the finished product and wanted to add some sculpting.  So instead of using a finer Homemade Paper Clay, I went for my Das Air Dry Clay.  I created the skull face first.
       

       
      Then tonight I skinned the "bottle" side of the tavern adding a petal edge to the front and back around the neck and blocking out the window.
       

       
      What's Next?
       
      Well, I have to finish the back of the skull side and then the sombrero.  I have three Day of the Dead skull buttons I am going to embed in the sombrero per fairly common costumes.
       

       
       
      I'll also add a bunch of details to the building and naturally, I will do my usual work on the ground.  There are a lot of skulls that show a thin mustache for male ones, so I think I might make a series of boards tacked up to make a thin mustache to frame the doorway.
       

       
      This is a vector skull I manipulated to sort of match my quazy skull face.  I am thinking of doing it black on white like this.
       
      As usual, thoughts and comments are welcome.
       
      Enjoy and Stay Tuned!

      During the last few days I've sculpted these out of fimo air classic and then painted them. Really happy how they turned out :D

      Hi everyone, just wanted to share this Bigby's Hand spell effect mini I made. It is made of Fimo air dry clay and took me about 30 minutes painting included. I was inspired by D&D Icons of the Realms Spell Effects – Arcane Fury & Divine Might miniatures and diceded to try and make one of my own :D
