A Look at the Armature

A few people were curious so I thought I would put up some photos of the armature of the previous statue(Maminox).

So here is a look at how I plan my armatures. You’ll see immediately that it’s not a very finished drawing. It’s really meant for just body proportions and armature building.

If you look closely you’ll see that there are circle everywhere. That is where all the joints will be in the anatomy of the armature. This fella had wings so there are a lot of joints.

So I used all that reference to make this:

Now posed into what is nearly how he will be when the sculpt is finished.

The armature consists of: 1/16″ and 1/8″ aluminum wire for the base, wire mesh for the wings, aluminum foil to bulk it out, and the yellow blobs are Milliput an epoxy putty.

A small look at the sculpture with some of the armature still exposed.

I am going to try and add extra info like this for each of the sculptures I do. Feel free to tell me what you would like to know more about. Email is jay_surma@hotmail.com

New Statue – Maminox

Let me introduce you to Maminox

IMAG0946

…the newest D&D character out of the shop. Maminox recently became epic level and was obviously deserving of his own statue.

I’d like to thank Corey Vissing for the freedom and wealth of history to work with on this guy. I had a lot of room to put my own input into the final design and it was a blast. I love nothing more than giving a character a final coherent look.

If you are interested in a statue of your own then you’re in luck. I’m taking orders.
