Justin sculpture by Gneiss-chert Justin sculpture by Gneiss-chert
Done in 2000.  
He is beat up bad! >.< Lost his hand, cape, broken leg and arm...sigh.  I used basic sculpey white which is soooo bad it's very weak and brittle! But they didn't have premo, ultra, or firm sculpey back then.  I will redo him.  He will likely be the first to get sculpted after I finish Omega Ridely.

Sculpey clay, painted acrylics, wire armature, rhinestones for gems

I am eager to start! I have some projects to finish first to prepare for the book! Then I will start.  I'm thinking of doing an action sculpture of Justin with Miral from the early chapters.  I will have a drawing of it eventually.

I love how great he looks! You could possibly fix his handless state by using some wires to construct a hand but then Justin would look like he has a robo-hand! :lol:

He's not broken, he's proudly showing us his scars after a fierce battle (He was a warrior before King, right? ;P ) :XD:

Amazing detail!! :O If you could sculp such figure, then repairing it won't be a problem for you at all (unless sculpey can't be repaired, I don't know about such material)

That reminds me: I want to make another sculpt of Meta Ridley now that I'm more experienced with DAS Clay, perhaps I'll do a better job with it than with my last one =) But that's not the biggest of my sculpting projects I want to make someday (it's one of them, though) =D

:icongneiss-chert:
Gneiss-chert Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe! Yes very true! =D

Thanks he was my first human-ish figure! So I made some bad choices when sculpting him.

It sorta can but not so well once painted and varnished.   The clay I used is so weak it isn't worth it.  Beside I would like to do an action pose from the book with Miral in it too since they are the two main characters.  The sculpture will be more than just a figure then! ;)

OOO ridley! I have to finish that too!
I look forward to seeing a new ridley from you! :la:
OH what else are you into?

I am eager to redo Justin! 
Trying to decide on a pose! =)

Oh I almost forgot that I remember looking quickly but as I do check it again, it does look damn good and well detailed, but bit unfinished? at least with wings, you really got awesome talent there! :)

:icongneiss-chert:
Gneiss-chert Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes unfinished sadly! I hit a rough spot in my health while working on it and haven't gotten back to finish him.  I will though as I am much better now!.

Yeah his wings just need to be done.  Of course I have found a better liquid clay to do the wings with since >.< It took so long to string that brass wire through the wings but It will look better!

Thanks a lot!  Once I improve on the human figure I would be happy to take commissions.  I just have to find a good way to mail them!

You'll need to make the packages really soft on the inside that no harm can come to the figurines etc.  Good luck on hoping to get all that right with it!

Hopefully you will be able to finish this and any other figurine projects you might have under plans already would be great to see them finished some time.

I uses bases now and wire that runs in to the base so they wont fall!
