SPACE SAMURAI FANG (Supēsu Bushi Fang) aka ROCKET WOLF FANG (aka Roketto Ōkami Fang) is a character I made up when I was a little kid. I wrote a lengthy origin story on the Harvard mainframe (where my mom worked), which garnered me a fan letter. He’s the last survivor of an alien race, whose been recruited by the emperor who killed his people. (I think the plan was that Fang would eventually get revenge: I’ve always been about the long-unfolding plots, I guess.)
This 1/6th scale mini-bust was sculpted with Sculpey Firm, Super Sculpt, and Apoxie, and painted with acrylic paints.
Here’s a teenage drawing of the character, then a sketch from memory from a week or so ago that lead to the sculpture:
From a recent photoshoot with Tony Martins (@TonyM_Photo,) Jodorowsky and Moebius’ Metabaron. This 1/6th scale mini-bust was sculpted with a mixture of Super Sculpey and Sculpey III over an aluminum foil armature, cast in Smooth-On Smoothcast 300, primed and painted with acrylic paints.
When I sculpted this, it was a commission and I’d never read Metabarons, but liked how it came out and cast it for myself. Now I love Metabarons, and I’m glad I kept this one. I was experimenting with the paint job to try to emulate Juan Giménez‘s painting.
The Metabaron was created by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius.
The Tick for #Watsoncon. This 1/6th scale mini-bust was sculpted with Sculpey Firm over an aluminum foil and Apoxie armature, set on a wood base with added broken wood “floor”. Photos by Tony Martins Photography (@TonyM_Photo).
WINTER SOLIDER for #Watsoncon. Based on actor Sebastian Stan as he appeared in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, this 1/6th scale mini-bust was sculpted with Sculpey Firm over an aluminum foil and Apoxie armature, set on a wood-block base. Photos by Tony Martins Photography (@TonyM_Photo).
Bucky Barnes (the Winter Soldier) was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.
My friend Watson the cat has developed severe kidney problems and is staying at the animal hospital. His treatment and stay are expected to be pretty expensive, so I’m trying to raise some money for him (and any donations in any amount are gratefully accepted).
To help him out, I’m doing $60 mini-bust commissions, just like the ones I did recently at Boston Comic Con (you can see examples here and below). Any character you’d like in any style you’d like.
