Building a Sculpture Portfolio...

So I decided to start to build a Sculpture Portfolio. I've always digged sculpture, and I feel it is one of the important steps in bringing my creatures and drawings to life.

My first attempt was a couple years back, when I did a sculpture of my Angry Annie character. I finished it but it has been sitting in a half painted state ever since. I'll finish painting in the next couple of weeks and post it.

But in the meantime here are some of my other characters I decided to bring to life. I haven't painted them yet and one of them is waiting for an upper torso. So with no further delay, let me introduce my new friends.

At the top is "Splunk". He is not fished yet, he is still waiting for his torso. Splunk is in middle management and has no dreams or aspirations of achieving greatness. I hope to do a illustrated short story on him soon.

Next is the "Pudge Beast". He is waiting for a paint job along with other things. Please take careful notice how I used his lower stomach fat, belly button, and penis to form a second face. I like doing that kind of shit. You may also notice how he only has one arm, and stumps for legs. That is because his fat ass doesn't exercise. You may ask then why the one arm? How else would he shovel shit into his mouth?

Now we have our next Flaccid City resident. "Butt head", yeah I know it's not to original of a name. But what else are you going to call a guy with a head shaped like a wet cigarette butt? I'm still working on his story, and no I don't want any suggestions.

Finlay we have this guy. He is actually a composite of a bunch of troll figures I've drawn over the years. I'm going to paint him, but I think I'm going to sculpt a second version sometime in the near future. I would like to see him with a really long nose and goggles.

So that's it for now. I'll post the figures as I paint them, along with paintings I'll be doing for the upcoming Robots and Twinkies show.
