Thanks Cam'. Too kind.

Ha, thanks Gits'.

Thanks Graven', I'm quite pleased with how the gems turned out.

Thanks Shas'.

Thanks Januine. Been lurking on your thread for a while, probably should make a comment.

I've rarely had a chance to RPG, so sadly that means nowt to me
Thanks Red'. And the tripod details are quite easy to accomplish too.

Third 1:12th painting is done. This one is blue because... rgb.

Entitled "Blue Wave" it doesn't really need much explanation.
I did give the "water" a gloss varnish to make it look wetter, and for a different touch.


And now it's time for a tidy up of my work area and then on to the next project (to use of some of the masses of junk I've collected). Stay tuned

I love the painting and the meta-data on the back makes it even better... but where is your signature??

Thanks Gits'. I think the data on the back is a good way to make them more than just a model; good, bad, or anywhere in-between, they are works of art in the same way a full-sized painting is.

I sign them after the photos, as I didn't really think sharing my signature over the internet was a brilliant idea.

I have added little Dr H's on the front of all three now though, so there's that.

Actually, I have a naked lady tank-art inside my army's Wave Serpent, and the single-piece sprue sculpture I carved for practice is based on the female form.


So I have naked ladies covered as well.

New project is in the head-scratching stage.

Apologies for going AWOL for a while.
I've not been anywhere, and I have been building, but in trying to produce something new I've been going down many dead-ends and have not had anything to show for it.
I've not even been lurking on DDakka, so I have a great deal of threads to catch up on, I'll try and and pop in on you all as soon as I can, but there is a lot to go through.

Some late replies:

I've done bottles, yes. No bowls of fruit... yet.

After all the work with cutting, gluing, cutting, sawing, plastering, gluing, sawing... etc... I have one thing I can show:
A rock!


I've also started some presents for a couple of football fans (that's soccer for those of you with other football games):

Early days yet, you can see where these will be going though.

I'll be back soon, hopefully...

Hi, thanks.
The rock is only primed at the moment, not sure how I'll paint the rock part of it but maybe it'll stay a similar grey colour. The gems indeed will be many bright colours.

Love that egg and the tiny artworks Dr H! Beautiful stuff.

Will the rock be a one off piece or will you make more similar terrain?

Thanks ckig.
The rock is meant to be one of a range of 1:1 artefacts/ornaments for someone's shelf. But if someone wants one for terrain, I'll be happy to make one (and include more in-scale details to show this), or two, or ten...

I originally started by trying to make a larger sculpture but didn't like where it was going so cut it up into parts that then became 4-5 smaller sculptures, and from those this is the only one that I'm happy with the product. Such is art...

The leftover pieces of the rest is still floating about and a new piece has spawned. Stay tuned for progress on this.

In the mean time, progress on the little devil:
He now has a trident and hands... as well as some more, less obvious sculpting.

Once the putty has cured there I'll go back in and make them look better; I'm still better at carving after cure than sculpting while soft.

Doc, I have no idea what I am seeing. That one piece looks vaguely like, well, a urinal. I thought Manchester fans were all wildpinklers. Joking aside (and I hope you found it funny.), the crystal formation looks intriguing.

Also, Are you not a Leicester fan?

Interesting updates - you could make a fair amount of money out of football shields I'd imagine... Looking like the second one (Red's urinal.. no pun intended) is for Liverpool FC?

These are 3D representations of 2 English football team's badges/shields. The first, as you might guess, is for Manchester United. Their badge looks like this:

My idea being that the majority of it is a base for the little devil to stand on as if he's popped into life.
He now looks like this after some sanding and carving, priming to check for problems, and attached to the base (long pins from his feet into the base) with his hooves sculpted on.

While I've been handwaving the pose and odd proportions away as he's demonic, I'm quite pleased at how he's ended up in a nice guitarist pose.

There are two flavours of Manchester football fans; Man U and Man City. They would likely say that the other was the wildpinklers (something I had to look up) amongst other less savoury adjectives.
And contrary to common belief, I know someone that was born and raised in Manchester and is a Man U fan.

Personally, I don't really follow football all that closely. I enjoy watching a good game, but don't feel any strong emotions over who wins or not. Although it's nice to see the home team doing well (Northampton) when they do.
I'm more into Rugby (and even played for my school and a local team for a bit), and Ice hockey as team sports. You may see a common element there.

Ruglud wrote:Interesting updates - you could make a fair amount of money out of football shields I'd imagine...
That's not a bad thought...

You are correct, that's probably says more about the original design than my work.
For those not familiar:


The Man U is nearly done (just need to go over and tidy up ready for painting), but will finish off the Liverpool one before painting them both; As they both include Red as the main colour.

You may also see in the background my other artefact project:

As a way of making use of all the leftover plaster I've collected (don't throw stuff away that might be useful).
Obviously inspired by dry stone walls, but I am gluing it together and filling the inside cavity, around that nice sturdy metal bar, with fresh plaster poured in.
I'll also be filling the larger gaps with more small fragments once I've got the main structure built.

Excellent use of the plaster. very realistic.

Those Logos are certainly more involved than what we see in American sports. The urinal comment was a note on how it looked, not a statement about anything. (Well, maybe an excuse to use an amusing German word) Just to clarify. The lettering, just painted or carved bas relief, or something else?

Ta. Once painted it should look like little rocks. That's the advantage of plaster, it breaks like rock... kind of.

I'm planning just to paint on the lettering.

inmygravenimage wrote:Love that plaster tower, great work. Onwards to victory and the League of Champions!
Thanks Graven.

Speaking of the plaster artefact, I got it up to the other end and have started filling the small holes with small "rocks".


And here is the progress on the Liverpool shield.

The bird is a lot more delicate than the devil (as would be expected...) and is all plasticard... with some sprue inside for support.
The head is a solid piece of plastic, and was made separate as I originally tried to make it from putty, but that didn't work out.
The wings are a piece of plasticard with a thinner layer over the lower half to give the feather layers.
The legs are pieces of wire with plasticard feet (one is glued to the shield, the other will be but you can see sitting to one side). The straight leg is through the foot and into the base.
I added plasticard edges to the shield as the foamboard wasn't being helpful with giving me a clean edge.
The rest of the details will likely be painted on.

Yah, bird is much cooler. What species? ( I know nothing of birds of the UK... yeah, I'm aware that it might be a double entendre.)

Also, maybe apply letters somehow, so they are raised? ( or too much work?)

Red Harvest wrote:Yah, bird is much cooler. What species? ( I know nothing of birds of the UK... yeah, I'm aware that it might be a double entendre.)
Thanks chaps. The bird is more stylised than the devil and therefore has more pleasing, cleaner lines. But devils / daemons are not really meant to be clean (or pleasing). Each to their own. The bird was easier, and has less "issues" that I could do better with next time.

I did start to play with the idea of sculpting a more realistic bird, but decided that I want to keep these two pieces as individual as possible to make each a bit more "special"; as they are both intended as presents.

Red', the bird represents what is known as the Liver bird: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liver_bird

Also, maybe apply letters somehow, so they are raised? ( or too much work?)
It's not so much, too much work, I'm not one to shy away from putting in the effort. But I want the devil and bird to be the focal points and the rest to be "just" a base for them to stand on; adding raised letters leads to carving all the twiddly bits etc. and then the bases become more intricate than the sculptures.
It could be done, but is just an artistic choice. There may be some 3D painting involved if the result is too flat.

And with the last blobs of glue and putty, the pair are ready for paint. I've got about 10 days to get the first finished so that's not too much of a rush on the painting.

Thanks ckig.

I neglected to take a primed photo, so here's a mid-basecoated photo instead...

The red on the Man U is pretty much there and I now need to get the white solid before covering it in yellow (this means waiting longer to add more white so as to not continue to spread red/pink about the place).

I'm still working on the red of the Liverpool, as what you can see there is a mix of scarlet and crimson and white, before the final red coat. Then more white, before green details.


I've also started work on a fourth project that should prove more fun than the current three. At the moment it's just a dismantled CD player and a blended green rectangle (that you can just about see on the right of the above photo)... All will become clear in time.

First pass of the lettering freehand on Man U... I probably turned purple I was holding my breath so much...
You can still see the pencil lines I used to get the placement right for each letter. This will all be covered up in time.
