Get your ass to mars!

With the news of the (almost certainly) pointless remake of Total Recall still fresh in my mind, did a bit of an arnie related sculpt.

Not for the purpose of an exact likeness, more for the expressiveness - and it doesnt get more expressive than an animatronic head of arnold schwarzenegger depressurising in the martian atmosphere

And this is a test of the very capable, and very FREE Sculptris

Its not ever going to replace Zbrush, but its very simple, streamlined and fun. Pretty much an ideal introduction to 3d-sculpting. For nowt.

how about some more warhammer then?

Its been quiet round here again - as has been the case for most of this year, i've been doing fewer pieces, but trying to spend a bit more time on things when i get the chance. So hopefully a case of quality > quantity. Thats the theory anyway

Having said that i do miss the 'ol speedpaints, so might have switch things up in a bit (but possibly after a bit of a break to recharge the creative batteries, and enjoy whatever sort of summer we're going to get round here)

Right, so what we have here is a couple of more warhammer themed pics - a trusty old spacemarine, and a less well known (to me anyway) Empire greatsword from the warhammer fantasy universe. Theres some process shots and even....ANIMATED MOTHERFLUMPING GIFS!

Very happy with some bits, not so happy with others, but overall represents a big effort at trying to up my game a bit. And none of it could have been done without the expert eyeballs and uncompromising, but spot-on advice from the following Elders Of Art.
