Video Tomorrow and New Photos

I will be posting a new video tutorial tomorrow. It would be up tonight but the downloads are messing up so I have to fix them.

I also uploaded new photos of Howard the Duck to my flicker page so go check them out.

Sculpting a Closed Fist


Ok At long last here is another tutorial.


I figured for this one I would do sculpting hands as that is one of the most common conversions used in modelling and one that is fairly easy once you get the hang of it. I apologize for the distance of the video but my recorder doesn't zoom in that close, however I tried to explain each part using my own hand as a reference point. Hopefully it is clear, if you have any

P.S. There is one more part to this that I am trying to upload, I may have to post it on another post. I apologize for the inconvenience but this program is very picky when it comes to video

New Photos Uploaded

Hi Everyone

I uploaded the photos of Spider Girl and the Super Skrull to my Flicker account today so be sure to go and check them out. They are part of the new Secret Invasion expansion set for Heroclix coming out in July. Once Wizkids previews anything that I have done I can release the photos to the public so be sure to check it regularity.

P.S. Don`t worry I`ll be doing another tutorial soon, I just have to figure out what.

Free Comic Book Day

My sculpting demo at the Comic Book Collector went well on Saturday. It was great to see all the Heroclix and comic fans out in force and I'd like to thank everyone for their great compliments and enthusiasm. One of the drawbacks of being a sculptor is that you work alone most of the time and you don't get very much feedback on your work so it I really appreciate going to events like FBD. You get to meet the fans and get face-to-face feedback. Special thanks to the two Tim's at the CBC for having me.
