Miniatures are fun! I made this little sculpting/painting combo recently, Mostly because it was ages since I made something for myself. What is it about? I don't have a clue.
I also did this little unconventional spaceship a few months ago, mostly as an experiment. I tried to make it look big but did't quite succeed, mainly because it' about the length of a pen...
Lastly a few miniature sets made for an online game.

The record states 86 boxes left Clarksville, box number 24, supposedly containing the body of an extraterrestrial, went missing along the way.
This was an enjoyable and different project, both in time period and subject. Most of the suit and the ship parts are made of cardboard with a layer of PVA glue and filler then lots of metallic and non-metallic paint layers to give it an alien metal look. The suit also contains parts from a barbie doll, plastic wine glass and even some bread bag twisters and rice noodles got used at the waist area.
Hope you like it!

Music videos often have close to no budget and crazy deadlines, at least from my experience.
Me and skilled prop student Erik had about a week to make a complete daemon character plus some gore effects and props, this was for a music video for the band Dying Fetus.
I'm posting the process to show that you don't always need expensive materials and experience to make cool stuff. There is two quite obvious references for this character- The reference i got from the director was the Mouth of Sauron from LoTR and my own reference, the ever so inspiring Guillermo del Toro.
|Basic concept, insect meets plant meets human.|
We tried to keep the fabric in the joints, but this would be filmed in a dark room so small breaks wouldn't be a big problem. it was painted with acrylics and some extra varnish between the "scales" to make it look a bit more organic.
The rest of the costume was basically a black shroud, the scales was cut from an old doormat i found in a ditch (!) and a bunch of black garbage bags, strips from the bags was twisted and half melted with a heatgun into the stringy bits.
After doing a bit of simple makeup and some 40- minutes Super Sculpey teeth (probably not very healthy but I was the one going to wear it anyway) it was done. and ready for test shoot.

Found at Carrigaphooka Castle.
Thanks to David from The Old Pretenders for giving me the opportunity to build a mummified Leprechaun.
I wanted to do it for some time.
I have always liked contrasts and the idea of an evil old mummified creature in a extravagant green suit and large hat really appealed to me.
I wanted him to look like an uncivilized creature trying to look civilized, clothes made up of old handcherchiefs and stolen jewelry The figure with box is about 35cm.

Not every day you get the opportunity to make your very own version of the classic Freddy Krueger glove.
Very enjoyable project indeed.
I went for a gritty combo of horror and turn of the century technology, a bit more elaborate and refined then the original, but still with that "built by a madman" vibe.
I imagine the wires would be connected to an external power-source to electrify the blades for extra spectacular effect.
Mainly made out of sheet brass, lots of bolts, my old glove and some madly sew together leather.
(Edit: added last picture with clockwork because, well... I added clockwork)
