Homo Chitinous first full figure sculpt

Postby CrumbReaper » Sat Sep 30, 2017 6:25 pm

Hi all, been practicing and started and scrapped a lot of figure sculpts but have one nearly finished I'm really
happy with! It's 132mm tall and Kneadatite Greenstuff over Aves Apoxie, wire and some plastic model sprue.

I've been massively inspired by the design work of Nirasawa and wanted to have a go at one of his Cyber Arms
similar to the Nina Darkness model and also included a small Man Chrysalis on top of the staff.

I've gone for a reaching or spell casting right arm, a staff holding right arm, an ancient tome in the left plus an optional
Nirasawa Cyber Arm! Really pleased with this myself and just a base to go! Feedback and crits welcomed as always 8)

I've taken some close up shots of the arms, staff etc and you can see them on my gallery folder

You'll see some pics of the additional antennae to stick on the head there too

my imagination works along weird lines and my inspirational artists create surreal oddness that my brain likes, but
I don't think I'm weird as a person, or at least I hope not.

Probably not your cup of tea but check out the work of Yasushi Nirasawa, Takeya Takayuki, Keita Amemiya and Katsuya Terada.

Guessing you aren't down for this sculpt when it gets cast up then? :lol:

A few tweaks to the head and some vestigial limbs out of the chest, more details on the staff and now ready to paint.
Very pleased with it, great learning curve and already on with another figure sculpt idea.

140mm tall main figure, Greenstuff over Aves, wire, plasticard, charm bracelet bits
