Obviously, I haven't been very good at keeping this blog going so far, but I'd like to start making an update post at least once a month.
I've been very busy in the past few months, having finished the Visitation scene for my friend Joy last April. That project took a lot more time than I had anticipated. I had never done 54 mm figures before and did not anticipate the exponetial increase in the workload that that scale has over the typical 28 to 32 mm mini. We had looked into finding a publisher for these, but to no avail. I also looked into having them cast myself, but decided that it was something I couldn't afford at this time, so I'll be sending the greens off to Joy soon. Joy is a fantastic, world-class painter, so I am excited to watch as she brings these to life. You can check out Joy's blog and paintings here.
In April, my friend Kris and I drove down to ReaperCon in Texas where I was a guest artist and taught some classes. I had a great time and met so many wonderful people. I spent a lot of time connecting with the other sculptors and painters. The talent at that show is mind boggling, and it was very humbling to share the artists table with legends like Bob Ridolfi, Julie Guthrie, Bobby Jackson, Jason Wiebe, Tre Manor, Adam White, Derek Schubert, Rhonda Bender, and others who I didn't get a chance to connect with personally. Here's a big thank you to Reaper for giving me the opportunity to be a part of their Con. I plan to attend next year as well, and am already excited for that.
Since ReaperCon, I've been working on several new sculpts for Reaper that they requested. I'm also working on a cyber lady sculpt for a private commission. You can see my WIP on this on the Reaper forums if you like.
In addition to this, Dr. Mike Burns of Dark Fable Miniatures has commissioned me to create several more sculpts for his upcoming Indegogo campaign later this year. I can't share everything with you, but he has released that I will be creating Ammut the Devouerer, a creature from the Egyptian mythos with the head of a crocodile, front of a lion, and rear of a hippo. I am really looking forward to this one as I love sculpting monsters.
Well, I better get back to pushing the putty round. Have a great day!
