The Sky King!

The Sky King from the Kings Of Atlantis prototype sculpture is now complete and heading off to mold along with a few other projects I've have finished off. This King maquette sculpture will come his lightning bolt power sword and a skull deco base all sculpted up from scratch. The Kings are going to be the villains of the Tuttz cat universe in the story called The 6th Prince I have been working on for a while now and plan to start showing all the concept art from it soon. Everybody wants to know more about the Tuttz cat and where he came from and he has quite a story to tell. It was a blast making the body sculpt for the Kings Of Atlantis as I had dozens of castings of the head sculpture laying around for a few years and it was time to finally bring it all together. Below is the finished sculpture with a withered, aged, worn and cursed feel and I hope it will look thousands of years old after it's cast up and painted. The Sky King figure stands at 7 inches tall and will come with the lightning bolt power sword and cursed skull base accessories.



Here's the finished baked Super Sculpey images of the sculpture with a finished resin casting of the head..

Kings Of Atlantis!

Guess who's back?
The Kings Of Atlantis are back and in a very different way than you have seen them before in resin. I released them a few years ago as just cleartint skulls, some were glow in the dark and jade editions and it even released in a limited run 1/6th scale version. I did sculpt a very small version of the Kings skull which was cast up but never used due to a project that fell through. Well now that small skull will get a fully sculpted body from me for a figure that will stand 7 inches tall. Below are some teaser shots to the build up of this new figurine in progress.
NOTE: There are 10 different Kings...do you remember them all?
Wealth King - gold
Wisdom King - Bronze
War King - red
Sun King - yellow
Sky King  - blue
Vengeance King - orange
Forest King - green
Love King - pink
Sea King - purple
Peace King - silver


 The original small King skull I sculpted a few years ago and cast up in many colors and styles.

 Armature build up with Magic Sculpt and Super Sculpey. No toy wax on this sculpt as it has to look really old worn and beat up a bit.
I even cast some of the Kings skulls in pastel colors. There is a pink and a orange king. Yep.
 The new Kings will have a design with bone and battle armor fused together.
 A teaser on how I will be casting up these new King sculpts. Maybe I'll even make a creepy base for them to stand on hmmm...

 The look I'm going for on these Kings is a ancient, withered and cursed feel. Full reveal of the prototype coming up. Stay tuned!

DragonFly Resin Prototype!

Here's the all DragonFly 2.0 3dprinted resin prototype bug I 3dmodeled in the computer. It has a mecha feel to it with a standing pose, all new wing and tail design and it stands at 3 inches tall. The wings and horn are not interchangeable and do not come off like the earlier sold out seated 1.0 versions. Pricing, edition sizes and colorway information will be revealed shortly. Hopefully I'll get this new bug into resin production soon.
