HOTD Sculpt - Magician by blogzilly HOTD Sculpt - Magician by blogzilly
For the hell of it, and because I think it's interesting and because it's my friggin' page, gonna show the sculpts from the House of the Dead line that I recently uploaded the concept and control art from.

It's cool sometimes to see how a sculpt turns out from the original material. The sculptor uses whatever concept sketches or control art I provided, along with whatever reference material I could put together for them.

Then it's all process...they show me the rough sculpt, I make comments, they show the next step, comments, and on and on, until the sculpts are approved and then cast and painted. In fact, one of the types of art I did over the last ten years I never ever show, because it is boring to most...and that is when I take a sculpt into Photoshop and digitally revise it to show the sculptor what I need him or her to do to the piece.

I could have thousands of deviations with just that shit alone. And what's interesting to note is that there is where a lot of my touch went into the work, being the art director. Many things would get shaped during that phase, the sketches and what-not were a simple starting point.

OK, for ease of viewing, here are all the links to the previous House of the Dead sketches. If you are curious about what the sketch looked like of the character that is shown here in sculpt form, click on the link.

House of the Dead: Chariot Sketch

House of the Dead: Alternate Heads Sketch

House of the Dead: Magician Sketch

House of the Dead: Bob the Zombie Sketch

House of the Dead: Kuarl Sketch

House of the Dead: Hierophant Sketch

House of the Dead: Strength Sketch

House of the Dead: Johnny the Zombie Sketch

House of the Dead: Ken Sketch

-----------------------------------

This is the Magician sculpt. These photos suck ass, I know I have better ones somewhere. Or I can reshoot the prototypes at some point. This photo set does NOT do the sculpt any justice at all.

This was an old layout from the Palisades site where we showcased some un-produced work...hence the Land of the Lost title, which is what we called the blog on canceled stuff. I maintained a daily sort of blog thingie where I showed production type stuff.

Sculpted by SOTA with paints by Plan-B Toys.

The only thing that separates a good job from a flawless AND sublime job is the Magician's feet. Too oversized. Otherwise, it's a real work of art. Bravo!
