Shadowsea sculpts: clal-chk scavenger, trog shaman

Recommended Posts

Wow vulture, I didn't know you were sculpting for AMG; that is awesome!

 

They look great. Of the two I think I like the Trog better, but that's partly because I like lizardy beasts more than insecty beasts. The detailing on that Trog is pretty damn excuisite though, very nice work there (I like your sculpt a lot better than the concept art actually). Don't get me wrong, the insect-man is good too; as you said, the face is well done and very creepy.

 

Sadly, I didn't opt for these two guys from the last AMG Kickstarter, as I thought I'd wait until a full Sunless Kingdom starter set was released (do you know if they'll do a KS for that in the near future?).

These are just amazing vulture! The details are fantastic and I love the bases you made for them ::):

 

Maybe I should see what other goodies this company has for me ^_^

Way to rock it, Enos! Congrats on getting the chance to sculpt for Eric, and for doing such a bang-up job on both figures.

These are fantastic, Vulture. I think you've captured the detailed, and equipment-heavy look of the AMG line very nicely. Hopefully, they'll send more of the jobs your way.

I have no constructive feedback. You are sculpting like a total pro. I've only had a quick look, but here's my impressions:

 

Details look crisp and natural; symmetry looks good, proportions look precise. Motion and balance look right; cloth and clothing is mostly moving in sympathy with the body and with its own weight.

 

So, all in all, I think there's going to be stuff you pick up on as not being quite right or as needing more work as you push for more perfection and develop your style, but both of these are 100% professional. Really, really good work, worthy to stand alongside any collection IMO.

Amazing! I am excited to see these and possibly paint them in the future. Really nice work overall. I think you did a really nice job working some somewhat suggestive concept sketches too as opposed to mechanical view drawings...very impressive.

thanks guys, i am humbled by the positive response! it is easy for me to get hung up on imperfections ; i am trying so very hard to learn as much as i can and really put solid effort and total commitment in to each piece and it is easy to lose perspective. every kind word in incentive to keep pushing myself and keep practicing.

as i recall, there will be a "mini-kicker" around May after this one has been fulfilled to complete the SK starter, add the draconids and expand the factions

:blush:

so true about the little things. in sculpts i have completed  tiny "errors" i didn't notice at the time are glaring...

thank you! the concept art was not mine, however. credit for that goes to Víctor P. Corbella.

Are you attending RCon, Enos? If you want really good feedback, it's an excellent time to talk with the sculptors. They are, to the last (wo)man, super-awesome folks who will gladly spend time discussing the craft with you.

I would love to and I am really hoping funds permit this year. I get giddy just thinking about it.

I say this to budding artists, as a cheerfully and without regret failed artist: that niggling dissatisfaction with your own work is a key part of developing your awesomeness. Just don't let it poison you or your enjoyment. You're not in the very top ranks yet but you are working at a really solid commercial level and your total commitment to each sculpt really shows. In fact you seem to have a precision and a technicality to your work that surpasses some of the work of well-known and successful sculptors. ETA: which means actually that you ARE top-notch and I don't know what I was smoking. Crack, probably.

 

Admittedly we've gotten a peek into your process so we get a bit of an insider's view, but I truly believe that commitment to each sculpture in its own right is actually visible to the naked eye. I admire your commitment to your craft very much.

as a person who can't sculpt a square box I stand in Awe of what you have done.   Keep it up and like the others here have said.. I look forward to being able to acquire a few of these so that I can humbly apply paint to them and addthem to my collection.

      To complement my Ent I wanted to sculpt a small toad man. None of yhe available miniatures really fit the bill, so I started from  scratch. 
       

       
       

       
      After bulking out the body with greenstuff and milliput (to make it less bendy)  I made good progress with the skin texture. The combination of micro beads, poppy seeds and super glue applicator tube produced a really nice warty skin texture. 
       

       

       

       
      Next are the arms and legs. He will be a plain toad, only a hand weapon will be added inspired by Polynesian arms.

      I always wanted to paint a Cronosaurus so when Antimatter Games offered on through a Kickstarter I took it.
      In hindsight I regret getting the FDM printed version, I should have gone for the resin one since you can clearly see the printlines on this one.
      On the other hand it was a good deal and it helped me to choose what kind of printer I wanted.
      This came preprinted
       
      Part of my Lost World Project.

      Hope you enjoy the beastie.

      I got this one printed out in FDM from a kickstarter.
      In hindsight I should have chosen resin, it did help me decide to go for a resin printer myself.
      The printlines are visible and it's rough, I even used putty to smooth things out where I could.
       
      All in all a nice sculpt though.

      Hi All,
       
      Finished both of these awhile ago, but finally had time to take pictures now that I'm on "vacation" during quarantine.  
       
      My first conversion is for my Fallen Aasimar's necrotic shroud.  I used Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (77173) and the wings from the Bone Devil (77325).  This was also my first time painting the Bones line.  All my previous minis were metal and I have to say I learned my lesson.  While the plastic made the conversion much easier, I just don't like the way my acrylic paints sit on it compared to the metal.  Also the lower detail is disappointing.  But what do I expect for a fraction of the price though, amirite? (I shared my original aasimar mini in a previous thread.)

       
       
      I also completed my first green stuff sculpt from scratch.  This is my aasimar's spiritual weapon: a scythe crowned with a raven skull.  The magic effects are made with hot glue, which I learned from The Crafting Muse and EonsOfBattle.  I thought it was a super cool trick, and I even managed not to burn myself.  I'm really happy with it overall for a first attempt.

       
      Feedback is welcome!
       
      Thanks

      Story
      3D File Design
      Miniatures come in as a single-part with a separate base, or sliced into parts, where it helps in printing or when there are different part options, such as different weapons. For best results, we recommend resin printers as they will capture all of the fine detail of the models, though filament (FDM) printers will produce great results also. Scenery STL files are designed for FDM printing and come sliced and keyed and are set up to fit within a print area of 220 x 220 mm.
      STL rewards from the main pledges are set for delivery via download links after the project ends, within the first 3 weeks. Stretch goals may take longer as we may need to complete the 3D sculpting before they are available, but they should be done within 4-6 weeks.
      Pre-Supported
      We are providing the models with a pre-supported option for those that want them. Pre-supported models are created with Chitubox.
      Sample Prints
      Below are castings made from resin prints from this project. 
      Pledge Levels
      There are three main pledge types. The Adventurer pledge get the Core Rewards, which include miniatures and scenery and stretch goals for individual character miniatures. Other stretch goals can be added for an additional amount as shown on their picture. The Champion pledge gets the Core Rewards and all of the stretch goals as well as the New Add-Ons. Finally, the Treasure Hoard includes all of the Core Rewards, stretch goals and the New Add-Ons as well as Add-Ons from previous projects (Multiple GB of files). There are also special early-bird pledges for the Champion and Treasure Hoard at a reduced price. Each pledge level gets its STL Rewards as well as PDF rulebook files for DeepWars and ShadowSea and the Stygian Depths.
      If you want just to collaborate or have access to the Add-Ons you may consider the Basic level at just $1. These backers get the Rulebook  PDFs, so it is a great way to get playing.
      Any pledge level can be modified with the addition of Add-Ons, shown  at the bottom of the page. Simply increase your pledge amount for the  add-on you want.
        Stretch Goals
      If we are funded past the initial goal, we will unlock Stretch Goals. Some stretch goals may be available for an additional cost for the Adventurer pledge but are all free to Champion and Treasure Hoard backers.
