Forbidden Love block-in

Starting blocking in my new display piece. Here i am approx. 3 hrs on each character. The female lead is shaping up nicely, i have her basic structure and features in place. There are a few proportion and symmetry issues, but overall it is a good start. As for the creature he is taking a little longer to shape up due to the size of him. I have the basic forms and need a lot more before he starts looking like something. Stay tuned for more as i continue to work on this.

Forbidden Love

New concept for an upcoming piece. For a while now i have wanted to do a piece that incorporated more than one head and had more of a story to the piece. I came up with this forbidden love piece with a reaper creature and a strong female character.
I have always loved fantasy art and the dynamic between beauty and the beast. I have been inspired by the works of Luis Royo and James Ryman and many others that have a strong female lead using their strength and beauty to control the beast. Also the 80's horror classics always have a strong female lead, Nancy defeats freddy - Lauri defeats Myers, etc.

As for this piece both the monster and the girl will be strong pieces on their own, but will work great together. For the creature I want to make him into a grim reaper and use burlap mixed with latex to make the hood. (Spoke to Pete Infelise at the devils workshop when i purchased his Mr. Grimm mask and have been dying to try the technique) For the female character she is going to be strong, beautiful, tough, and fearless. For the paintwork I will try out a few different versions - one as a human and another as a vampire. Also would like to do a werewolf bust that interacts with the girl for a red riding hood version.

TMNT ninja turtle bust finished

Here is the finished sculpture. Finished the skin details and wrinkles, used turtle references for the scales and made them light so they wouldn't take away from the piece.

Ninja turtle collectible display in progress

Update: i have worked out the expression and am happy with the way he is turning out. The angle of the head is slightly lowered down, more anger or disgust in his eyes. I also started detailing his chest and shell area. He is coming along nicely now, more detailing on the way, then he off to molding.

New Ninja turtle bust in progress

Just started working on a new bust this week. Another ninja turtle piece, the third piece out of four different expressions. For this one i wanted to go slightly larger and i also want to make him rougher and more realistic with skin textures and scars. Here is the progress i have so far.

Concept bust, the starting idea i was going for. I am going to try for a more subtle expression for him in the end.
Here is the block in, about 1.5 hrs in.

Here the block in is finished and i am starting to work on the expression and forms, 4hrs in.

Here is where i am currently. I started refining more and added some forms to the face for the expression. Also started defining the shell.
