Here’s something I’ve been working on for the last few months. I’ve been building a fair few mechs and scratchbuilt robots recently and I wanted to find a way of introducing more sculpture to that type of build. So I decided to sculpt a hard edged model in the form of a female android.
It’s difficult to sculpt accurate curved geometric shapes, so I spent alot of time sanding the shapes smooth before moulding them,
My mech obsession is continuing with a new build. I wanted to do something a little more retro/steampunk for this one. I also found a cool way to do the legs by using some cupboard door hinges. It seems I forgot to post the first part, so here are both 😉
I’m preparing for the Lincoln Steampunk Asylum and this year round, unlike the last two years, I wanted to do something that doesn’t involve covering my face! I had intended to make something that was nice and comfortable. What I’m working on is a little more comfortable than a full on mask, but as it’s turning out, only by abit 😉
In this video I use a technique called cold casting to build some armour pieces.
Here’s the second part of my latest mech build! This time around I’ve gone a little 1950s-esque with the colour scheme.
The face is inspired by some of Simon Stalenhag’s work. He’s a fantastic artist if you’ve not heard of him. Here’s an example of his stuff. I talk a little more about him and other mech artists in this video.
Here’s the second part of my video series in which I finish my mech model, paint it up and add a diorama base. I’ve been watching quite a lot of diorama videos on YouTube recently and I’ve become very struck by the people who do this kind of thing cos there’s some amazing stuff out there. So in this video I add some clear resin to the base to serve as some water and I also add some vegetation and various other bits to create, hopefully, a realistic looking diorama scene.
