the gun is a miniature from steve-o's toys :3  and the chain is a handmade metal chain.  just paint them up and no one can tell.  The glasses are made of wire

the trick is to cheat ;D

cheating is SO allowed, as long as it's disclosed as necessary.  I LOVE sculpting around fancy miniatures and one day I want to get some of that tiny food that the etsy crafters make so I can make a cute figure for it!  
as long as I say I bought it and didn't make it it's cool :3

I can't say because i've not used Gédéo before :c  if it's cracking make sure you're heating and cooling it properly when you bake it (if it's a bake clay) and also make sure that your armature is supporting the weight of the clay.  Most polymer clays don't support weight well so you have to build a support structure inside of the figure :3

OMG I'm your fan!!! I want to start with clay but I have a doubt, you said in FAQ you use super sculpey (beige, i guess) and super sculpey firm (grey), right? and you mix them... In which proportion? Sorry I'm a newbie here haha And another question... the inside (armor), you do it with epoxy? and why?

Sorry so many questions... haha but I'm absolutely in love with your work, really, gratz :)

PD: sorry for my english :$

Omg- that- that is amazing- that chain is-- wow! WOW! <3 
And the buttons on his shoes- and the rose and the glasses! I can't express how cool all those details are...
And I can't imagine HOW you did it- it's a  tad too crazy to imagine. XD Beautiful work!

WOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! the detail in this sculpture is just toooo amazing for words!
I love this anime-ish Final Fantasy style! man.. I wish I could commission you with something like this but this would be about 100 to 200 dollars! so I dunno if I could've anyways.. but if I did commission you with something like this I would ask for this![link] this is a character that my friend made for her future video game. I would most certainly buy something like this for her. if I could afford it.. -_-

i'm thinking of making it myself but If I could I would rather get a PERFECT sculpture instead.. cuz i'm not as experienced as you.. obviously.

:aww: thanks! Love this guy so much! He was my first full human sculpt, I did a little dog and a bust for Vaulker before him.

actually, for this one, take that last number and multiply it by 30 ^^; to get a more accurate cost for this guy. he's nearly 12 inches tall and took hundreds of hours to complete over 3 months. He's a near perfect representation of the character as I designed for my thesis comic :3

The one you're linking to isn't as complex, and probably doesn't need to be a foot tall, though ^^ the cost, if you're interested, would have to be discussed in a note ^^

AWESOME! I saw your dog character too he's awesome too!

O_o uhhh.... dats allot of pesos. but that's so awesome that you made him so accurate!... although.. I wouldn't know how accurate it is cuz I haven't seen your comic. but I want too! :D

have you painted him yet?
Reply
:iconviistar:
VIIStar Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
lol that dog >_<

yeah, but not nearly a professional rate ^^ mainly it's cause the big complex ones takes so long that I can't offer them super cheap and still have a place to live...

^^ the comic is at viistar.com - under the illustration link. it's in 2 chapters called 'razing saintmaker's square' they have lightbox links there so you can read it :3 lazlo's the one in dark blue, can't miss him!

nope, he'll never be painted. he's a maquette, which is meant to show off the design and shadows, best if left flat grey ^^

Wow, all your sculptures are so amazing! They look so clean and smooth. How did you do it?

:iconviistar:
VIIStar Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
thanks :3

these detailed ones are hand smoothed with really clean wooden tools while the less detailed ponies are coated in 99% alcohol. Both are sanded before priming.

Do you use regular sandpaper, or something else?
Reply
:iconviistar:
VIIStar Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
I use 320 wet or dry automotive sandpaper - it's grey, not the kind for wood, and has an even texture. then step down to 600 for super smooth. mainly you want one that's got a really even texture and won't scratch up the surface.

Do you interested in casting figurines like this? You`ll get some money, i`ll get the sculpt. We could even sell it in the web.

All your scultps are absolutely amazing, but I think this guy is my favorite. I can't stop staring at the details, they're so well done.

Are they going to be painted or left the grey?

Yes, I thought it would be somewhere in that region,it's a comfortable size to work on isn't it? making good results a little easier or even miracles sometimes LOL.No seriously though,love your work and look forward to seeing more. Lionel :)

comfortable, yes, though i'm trying to make at least the main characters in proper scale to each other, osaja is a head taller than he is and barely going to fit in my friend's oven! we'll see how that goes Oe;

If you look at my gallery you will find a dragon I did a while ago.Silly me though,I made the bugger to big for the oven.Couldn't shut the door the last 6 inches.I lowered the temp' to 100 degrees and covered the cooker with a very heavy dampened old curtain blocking the door gaps in.baked for 1 hour turning the piece one quarter turn each 15 min's,turned out great.
