I recently decided to make some alien eggs to go alongside some aliens collectables that I own.
I’ve finished my scifi helmet sculpture which ended up looking very much like a scifi rescue suit – maybe a future coast guard suit or something.
This was a sculpted bust which I moulded and rotocast in polyurethane resin. I then scratch built the helmet and suit.
Here’re some more pics
And here’s the second part of my build video.
Here’s a new piece I’m working on. I’m trying to continue the approach I took with other recent projects which is to combine sculpture and hard edged modelling together in one piece.
Following on from my previous mech build, I became a little obsessed with robots (not that I wasn’t already) and launched straight into my next build, this time of a scout type robot. I’m imagining this one is designed for hunting targets in bogs and marshes. In this video I construct the model. I’ll be painting it and sorting out a diorama base in the next part.
I also got hold of some inspiration from these two artists, both of whom are amazing.
I’ve finished my mech build. In this second and final part of the video series I paint the model, add some detail to the base and add some LED lights. I’ve gotta say I really enjoyed doing this and am already thinking about ideas for another robot build. I’ve also been watching diorama building videos on YouTube and want to include some of those techniques in the build.
Here’s the first part of mech building series which looks at building the piece. The next part will cover painting.
This is a ray gun that I made out of some cast resin pieces. It was one of those occasions where a few bits and pieces made for different projects just happen to fit together perfectly and just beg to be made into something. I’ve built up abit of a library of cast bits and pieces now so I’m increasingly finding myself using them to build projects.
