The sculpture is great!
But he looks more like a cat to me 0_0

I really like his face, the smile makes him creepy!

Thanks. I hope he's more creepy than friendly.

Y'know for an unspeakable hybrid thing, hes got an awfully nice smile. ;)

Yeah, I don't think I realized how cheerful he looked. Alligators and a lot of fish have a similar 'smile', so I hope he'll pass.

The statue and finish are _fantastic_! How did you get the faux-bronze appearance on the sculpey- it looks great.

Thanks. The painting process is fairly easy and it always looks pretty good. I prime the piece flat black and then drybrush bronze. After that I drybrush with black again over the shiniest bits, and then drybrush highlights with bronze. After that I apply a clear sealer; usually flat.

Ha! Well thank you. That would probably be West.

Really really nice. I like the lighting effect of the first picture! The lamp detail is very cool, and the back has just about the right amount of disconcerting 'hunch'!

I love your work! What are you making next?

Thanks. Sometimes the pictures make things look better, other times worse. It's nice that we can take a zillion digital pics to get a good one. I remember film...
My next effort is to be "The Rapture of Cthulhu". It will consist of three or four women 'worshippers'in exaltation before a pillar upon which a statue of Cthulhu is sitting. It's a big challenge for me.

He certainly has that 'not quite right' feel to him-great work. I love the lantern.

Thanks, Paul. I'm not overly pleased with the photos; they seem to distort him overmuch, but I'm happy with the sculpture.

Very nice! Did you sculpt the cane and lantern or were they premade items?
zombiequadrille's avatar
zombiequadrille Traditional Artist
Thanks! I made the cane and lantern, but did use a little wood and wire in their fabrication.

Awesome! I really like your style of sculpting. Keep up the great work!

Thanks again. Hey, after having a quick look at your gallery I want to come and play at your house. You've done some very impressive productions.
