For the love of Lovecraft
I have been sculpting a lot of big stuff lately, I mean A LOT. Oh man, have I been sculpting a lot... Um, anyways. I was asked by Blackball Games a while ago to work on their Book of Fragments project which is a Lovecraft based game. They wanted their creatures to be as big as they are reflected in the stories so I have been working in a scale that has pushed me out of standard gaming miniature techniques and into garage kit type of sculpting.
Here is the Dark Young, (Shub Niggurath) first model for Blackball and at the time this was the biggest sculpt I had worked on to date; measuring at about 260mm long and 130mm at it's highest point the model is produced in resin and is 3 pieces (4 including the base.)
