yo.. this is insane!

did you do that concept? or is it his and you expanded?
Regardless this is unbelievable.

how much do you turn these things around for?

Thanks man, I designed the base (though it is relatively rough) according to what the client wanted. He wanted a relatively accurate emulation of Simon Bisley's Conan, with a giant snakes severed head for a base (as opposed to a bland rock base). Conan fucks up A LOT of giant snakes in the original Robert E Howard stories, so its quite fitting.

When all is said and done, i get payed the equivalent of around minimum wage, keeping in mind that i am a noob, and i get to work on things whenever i have time or want.

Sheridan Doose said...

Thanks man. I deliver it to "the guy" unpainted and in pieces like the last one.

Wow, it looks really nice so far, I can't wait to see it when it's complete. I gotta say, your sculptures are great.
