About

Hi to all and welcome in my new Kickstarter campaign! this is a little campaign, composed by three busts. Each of them is a part of a story, a legend born from folklore or...yes, why not, by me. So, let's begin to show you my three last works!

 

Kuzunoha, the fox of Shinoda (large size bust)

 Kuzunoha is a popular kitsune in the japanese folklore. She was the kami of Shinoda's temple and, assuming human form, she got married with the poet Abe no Yasuna. From this love was born Seimei, a legendary Wizard. Foxes, in Japanese mitology are powerful demons and i feel myself linked to this mystical figure. Kuzunoha is a  resin bust high 10 cm and composed by four components to assemble with glue and paint. 

Windo the traveler (Small size bust) 

Windo is a little bust high 5cm and composed by three components. Windo is a mage...a bard and an old traveler. He tell stories to every one that want to speak with him. 

Sometime, when I play with my immagination, I like to think that Windo is myself in the next 30 and in another world full of magic...yes...for me is really funny. So, take a look! 

this is Windo!

Le Chat, the monster hunter (Kickstarter edition) (large size bust)

Le Chat is already produced but this model is really important for me so I wanna give him some optional part and create some new version of this model. This character is inspired by the cat with the boots and  by some videogame. Is an interesting kit composed by much components, much of them optional. In this special edition, Le chat has two optional medallion, a chaos star and an head cat! Hope that you like this model high 8 cm and composed by 10 components ( optional parts included)

I saw the first picture on Facebook this morning.  What you can't tell from that angle is the umbrella is a mushroom with a chicken leg for a handle.

Elder-Forge does beautiful and unique sculpts. I still need to paint my "Magic the Flame" from them. This one is... interesting. Not sure what I think yet.

The fox isn't that interesting to me, but I appreciate the kasaobake! Weird Japanese yokai make for the best mimics!

Hello! this is the second bust and last work for my next kickstarter! I am proud to show you Windo the traveler. I love to play with my imagination...I think that you already know this :P ...so, sometimes, I love to imagine myself in the next 30 years...in a fantasy world and may be that this character is simply...ME!!! So I've created this work joking with myself! Windo is a traveler, a wizard...and a bard, an old man with much stories to tell you...the same stories that I love to learn and to tell to the people that talk with me. Windo is sculpted in Beesputty and composed by three components. High 5 cm, it will be available on my next kickstarter

Hi to all! First of all thank you to Samurai Jack for sharing my project in this forum, this is a surprise and an honor for me. And thank you to every people that has commented . This is really important for me to know what do you think about my works. I am the founder, producer, graphic and sculptor (ok, yes...I am the the only employee of my little brand) so is fantastic to see people interested to my little house. I try to create something of original and different from the classic fantasy. I try to tell stories with my words...with my imagination.

 

About the umbrella...Sanael! yes, the strange umbrella is a Kasaobake. So...i try to imagine a story..the story of Kuzunoha...a kitzune, the guardian of the Shinoda temple. For one time...some hundred years ago, she was a wife, a mother. But now she is just a demon that live in the temple, forever linked to it. The strange umbrella is a key to read this work, to undersand how much old is Kuzunoha. The spirits Kasaobake are objects that, for the japanese folklore, become alive after one hundred year that remain unused inside a building. Now Kuzunoha, that is alone, take this mad spirit on his shoulders to feel less solitude, to talk and to find a friend that protect her from sun and rain. So Kuzunoha is alone, yes, but also happy to find a friend...his Kasaobake, an Umbrella that can be painted in every way you want  :poke:

 

THANK YOU GUYS!!! ::P:

      Story
        Sheol is a cooperative game, playable solo or up to 4 people, with an emphasis on storytelling and strategy. Sheol is set in a coherent universe where game mechanics and setting are deeply interconnected. It is organized in campaigns, in turn, subdivided into missions. In each mission, players will have to coordinate their efforts tactically to complete the objectives and defend the central game area (the Citadel) from the enemy invasion. The story will progress, mission after mission, allowing characters to discover the secrets of the Sheol’s world and unlock more items and skills.
      When the Shadows reached the moon, a dark mass called Sheol, like a black tide, began to form until it shrouded the moon completely, and the moon “cried” the Shadows down to Earth. Although technologically advanced, mankind had no means to stop the Shadows, which slowly filled the Earth and exterminated almost everyone. The planet was fully enveloped in a layer of clouds so dark that sunlight could not filter through, and the survivors took refuge on the Isle of Light, also called the Citadel, the last outpost of mankind. Lux, a type of light radiation capable of destroying Shadows, was discovered too late. Enclosed between the immense walls that surround the many square kilometers in which the intricate levels of the Citadel arise, humans have slowly forgotten the external world shrouded in darkness and exhausted themselves in a series of internal political, cultural, and economic struggles. In fact, over the decades, the Citadel has become a collection of decadent peoples, mixing nanotechnology with superstition, ancient beliefs and cyber-augmentations, chaos, and the emergence of new castes. Only the Scouts, explorers of the unknown, and raiders of the outside world, have not forgotten that the world belongs to mankind and that mankind shall reclaim it one day. In this game, you are one of them.

      Story
      Hello everyone!
      This collection of models is all aquatic themed. There are minis, monsters, and scatter terrain. There are 12 models in the cores set, and 18 stretch goals planned. That is up to 30 models with a buy-all price of $6. Times are tough right now, so I wanted to make something affordable that is still just as awesome.
       MODEL OPTIONS 
      All models come with a no base, simple base, and decorative base option. A $10 pledge gets you all 3 versions in addition to the successfully tested resin pre-supported version.
         THE CORE SET 
                              THE STRETCH GOALS
      Every $500 is a new mini, monster, or piece of scatter terrain. All mounts will have a saddle and no saddle version. More stretch goals will be added to match the funding level. So feel free to leave comments about what else you'd like to see!

      Me personally I'm more or less done with CMON. No way I'm spending more than $1 here, but some of you might be interested or some might find the comment section entertaining.
