Alien Juggernaut

(In-Progress)

Another Alien? Buckle up, it’s gonna be aliens, horror, fantasy, and monster stuff until I die, lol. This piece of in-progress is definitely more indicative of the results I’m craving. More detail, and more detail.

I used Sculpey® extra-firm synthetic clay, and I swear by it now. It holds every crease and fingerprint (ha!) beautifully and it’s pretty easy to work with. Of course, there’s the cost- at $15-$20CAD for a pack, it doesn’t seem too expensive, but if I want to build anything ‘life-sized’, I’m going to need to take out a loan, lol.

The Predator

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies

Water Hydra

Conjured up out of someone’s worst nightmare, maybe mine. This was a cavern-dwelling monster created for SAK’D, a game design I have been working on for some time.

Alien

H.R. Giger’s ‘Xenomorph’ is probably one of my favourite subjects to sculpt….or draw, watch, talk about (you get the idea). I started this sculpture ‘completely wrong’ (with an image in my head, instead of on paper, lol – a process that works very well for me when it comes to subjects I am intimately familiar with.

Unfortunately, while everything about this sculpture was going fantastic, the natural clay medium I selected was anything to the contrary. So, after a great deal of babysitting through the drying process- eventually the sculpture cracked in ways only images can describe (see below).

Just the same, I was determined to get something out of the experience so I sealed the sculpture up best I could, and airbrushed the base shading- before having to move, first once- then twice- before the sculpture was discovered by the cat. Needless to say, it is no longer on the to-do list, and now rests in a position of prestige in our gaming room.

Gothic Horror Dice Tower

Alright, so full disclaimer, when I mentioned above that the Alien sculpture was my first real sculpture with wireframe, that’s not entirely correct. 

This dice tower (for tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons®) was actually the first clay sculpture constructed using Sculpey® and using a wire mesh (that counts, right?). I looked online for a dice tower I could be proud to own and although there are several really nice options out there, I felt compelled to create my own. How hard could it be, right? Seriously, it was one heck of a learning process.

Once again working from insider my head (instead of a proper rough sketch to ease my future frustration) I dove right in with a batch of sculpting tools, a roll of chicken-wire, and a dream (lol). Of course I’m a big fan of the H.P. Lovecraft ‘Cthulhu’ mythos, horror in general, and wanted to incorporate a batch of my interests in one fell swoop. This dice tower is the result.

If you’re interested in commissioning a sculpture from me, I’d love to hear from you!
