New Biomech BJD project (version 2) (#WIP, #GITS, #BJD, #actionfigure, #darkart, #biomech, #cyborg, #biomechanical, #robot, #sci-fi, #cyberpunk, #sculpture, #art, #popsurealism, #fembot, #OOAK)

Here are some pics of a new private commission that I have been working on. I'm going for a more bio-mech/cyborg feel with this figure. It's 1/4 scale.









Works in Progress: Biomech BJD project (Continued) - Final Test Fitting

Here are some pics of a private commission that I have been working on. I started this project last November. It's coming along now (at least the base figure is) and I'm almost at the molding and casting phase, pending some more refining, adjusting and polishing.

At this stage, I'm pretty happy with the overall proportions and the joint system of the base figure. She poses pretty well considering the weight of the materials (super sculpey and magic sculpt) though using a figure stand definitely helps. Once it's cast in resin, it should have no problems posing on it's own.





almost there...

Next Up: I'll be doing a final polish of the rough areas and lay one last coat of primer over each peace, making new "hair", creating a custom display base, and finally making the silicone molds and casting in resin :)


Works in Progress: Biomech BJD project (Continued) - Interchangeable Faces and Hands

Biomech BJD project (Continued) (#WIP, #GITS, #BJD, #actionfigure, #darkart, #biomech, #cyborg, #biomechanical, #robot, #sci-fi, #cyberpunk, #sculpture, #art, #popsurealism, #fembot, #OOAK)

Here are some pics of a private commission that I have been working on. I started this project last November. It's coming along now (at least the base figure is) and I'm almost at the molding and casting phase, pending some more refining, adjusting and polishing.

At this stage, I sculpted a second head with 2 interchangeable face plates with Super Sculpey and Magic Sculpt.. I want to experiment with having adjustable eyes so that the figure can be made to look in different directions. I also made several hands that can be swapped-out at the wrist.


Here's a side-by-side of all the figure pieces that I originally started out with when I first began sculpting this project (left) and the pieces that I am currently at (right) after making more joints, hands, face-plates, and priming it all white, etc...


Next Up: Another test-fit, polishing/sanding/priming and hopefully molding...

Works in Progress: Biomech BJD project (Continued) - Refining the Joints and Making Hair

Biomech BJD project (Continued) (#WIP, #GITS, #BJD, #actionfigure, #darkart, #biomech, #cyborg, #biomechanical, #robot, #sci-fi, #cyberpunk, #sculpture, #art, #popsurealism, #fembot, #OOAK)

Here are some pics of a private commission that I have been working on. I started this project last November. It's still in the very early stages and has a loooong way to go before molding and casting... 

At this stage, I rebuilt and refined the elbows, hips, and torso joints with Super Sculpey and Magic Sculpt. I also worked and whittled down the arms an legs to ensure the figure can stand on its own. The photo next on the right is to give a size reference  of the figure in comparison to my Stormtrooper helmet :) The figures stands at around 16 inches tall.


One of the things I love about using Super Sculpey as a base sculpt before casting it can be whittled down and carved easily. 


I took the time to practice making hair. Ideally I want to have both a sculpted and realistic version of hair that can be swapped out for the final figure.


Next Up: I'll be sculpting different hands that can be swapped out, create a 2-part head with movable eyes, and redo the hair pieces. Stay tuned...







Works in Progress: Biomech BJD project (Continued) - Priming and Test-Fitting

Here is a preview of things that I am currently working on or have worked on in the past. The purpose of this page is to give you a glimpse of my process and some of the steps I take to create my work :)

Here are some pics of a private commission that I have been working on. I started this project last November. It's still in the very early stages and has a loooong way to go before molding and casting... 

After carving, sanding, grinding and polishing each part of the figure, I went ahead and primed everything a single color (in this case gesso white). This allows me to spot any irregularities that need to be sanded down, filled or carved out. This is also a good time to test-fit each piece and check for any articulation problems.


After the initial test-fitting, I realized that I needed to further refine the joints for better articulation  around the torso, hips and knees. 


Next Up: I'll be redoing the elbows and building a double joints. More sanding and refining and hopefully paint a final coat of primer on everything. Stay tuned...

Works in Progress: Biomech BJD project - Sculpting the figure

Here is a preview of things that I am currently working on or have worked on in the past. My hope is to share a glimpse of my process and some of the steps I take to create my work :)

Here are some pics of a private commission that I have been working on. I started this project last November. It's still in the very early stages and has a loooong way to go before molding and casting. 

These steps include roughing out the forms over the armature, cutting out the joint areas and baking the figure in stages. I over-baked the torso but it is still workable since I will be making molds of it down the road. The base sculp is made from super sculpey and magic sculpt over a wire armature.


At this stage there is still a lot of grinding, carving, sanding and polishing that needs to be done. Once I'm happy with the results and the test fitting is good, I can prime each part to fill in any minor surface blemishes and make the silicone molds. 
.
I will be working on a male figure as well. My secondary goal is to have a base male and female figure to work with and cast in resin. I will then create full cybernetic male and female figures as well so that the parts can be interchangeable and I can create more "one-of" biomech figures. I'll be posting more pics as the project progresses.
