Figure of the Week

This week I choose a Studio McVey piece as my favourite from the Cool Mini Or Not top twenty of the week painted by Iacton. Lots of other great stuff in the chart to, so always hard to choose, but this one jumped out at me most. Check out my favourites list to see a whale load of great minis all collected together for easy convenience. Its not exhaustive yet, but click on the Cool Sculptures Archive to get to the link and check out the work of some of the best mini painters in the world.

The Work of Adam Beane

A sculptor I admire greatly, his large scale statues are utterly perfect, clean, crisp and come with bags of character, movement and emotion - in short everything you need to make a great sculpt! Here is a little video showcasing his work. Enjoy!

Alien Intelligence

After browsing the CoolMiniOrNot website over the last couple of days I came across a stunning bust sculpted by the ever amazing Jordu Schell (http://schellstudio.com/) and painted by the painting machine that is "Jarhead" (Roman Lappat) of CMON. You can check his impressive group blog here - http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/ and please do, it is one I always enjoy reading and there is plenty of stuff to learn and plenty of eye candy to blow your eyes from their sockets. It is run by a small group of fantastic painters, not just Roman, so features work from several artists.

Today I finally started some sculpting again. I was just playing about - doing some alien face sketches when I hit a shape I liked and I kept going at it. Its nearly finished and now I need to figure how to use it in a sculpt. It is a withered face, very much Drow like so I may get it cast and try a few designs out. I like the idea of a warrior and a wizard character, so watch this space.
