It’s the Winter Solstice and  time for the annual Hub Comics DARK KNIGHT ON A DARK NIGHT Batman art show!

And above is my contribution, designed for me in record time by Erica Henderson. Here’s her design: tumblr_mxf9syD61F1r6m3eno1_1280

And here are some pics of the work-in-progress, made from Sculpey Firm over an aluminum armature:

Here’s another pic Erica took of it from the front. I’ll get some more pics and post them soon!

More from the ongoing project with Sean Downey:

First we shot some photo reference,  then we drew our creature here onto tracing paper, then pasted that onto some foamcore. Then Sean cut some hardie board into the general shape and we sculpted over it using Sculpey over a paperclay base.

Because we’re building pieces to be photographed and only seen from one angle, we’re working in relief

Which leads to one weird-looking sculpture when viewed from the side.
