This classic Iron Man is based off the Billy character from Blamo Toys. The Billy has a rather soporofic energy about it. I wanted to see what would happen by going the other direction and turning Billy into an action figure. The original Billy figure is carved from wood. This sculpt is made using Smooth-On's Free Form Epoxy Putty and Magic Sculpt and carved to mimic a wood effect. Here's a pic with the original.

Dang, this took a long time! Almost a full year. I have wanted to make a Voltron for the past five years; he's my favorite super robot. For this project, I molded and cast all the major parts, over a dozen different molds (each arm and foot, horns, wings, nose, teeth, sword, and so on). It's been a great learning experience.

For the Art Without Borders Charity Show at Art Whino. This show will benefit Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières). It's an excellent organization " work[ing] in nearly 70 countries providing medical aid to those most in need regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation." I was very pleased to be invited and wanted to make something that very directly related to their organization's work.

Samurai! 5" Minimunny head on a munnyworld Bub figure-the one that sorta looks like a hippo. It's got the best proportioned arms of all of them. I added legs too so this figure is now an inch taller than the original 4" figure.

big guy. 19.5"x8"x10"(LxWxH). I cut off the original labbit head and extended it four or so inches out to make a neck and much larger head. The back/shoulders were heavily built up. The labbit ears were turned into the horns and the labbit front legs were extended an inch to help make the back slope even more pronounced and give the whole figure a more aggressive stance. Check it out at SDCC and tell me what you think-or better yet-buy it while you're there:)
