Boy Soldier - Collaboration with the artist Schoony.

This little guy stands 6 inches tall and was a collaboration I was part of with the artist Schoony. This is a stylised vinyl toy version of his renowned art piece ' Boy soldier'. This went into production, complete with bespoke high quality packaging, also glow in the dark I believe. Check out his latest stuff here.

Nike Mags - Collaboration with the mighty sneakertoons.

I've been collaborating with Steve Piantoni at sneakertoons on 3D versions of his brilliant sneaker art. We've been trying to get these 3Ds into production for a while but hit a few snags with copyright. Been a pleasure to work on these, above being his sweet designs/ toons of the Nike Mags.. Crossing my fingers Steve can get these to go legit and put them into production soon.

Francesco Vampire - Let digital sculpting commence.

This guy is an oldie, sculpted for 'Character options' while I was part of the crew at 'Designworks' Windsor. This was my first ever digital figure sculpt, the character is 'Francesco' from Doctor who. A fairly unmemorable character but what the hell, I spent blood making him so he means something to me. Figure height was 5.5 inches if I remember correctly..

Assassins creed figurines

Cleopatra, scaled to 84mm.

Rodrigo, scaled to 90mm

Welcome to the relaunch of my blogging life. Been off the scene for years, working on some seriously demanding sculpting projects which has taken me away from the other more practical arts I love.. I decided to immerse myself fully in the practice of Zbrush and have been able to take on some extensive figure ranges like the above pieces. These are part of an 80 piece range of Assassins creed figures I've been developing for 'Hatchette partworks'.. I'm 50 pieces in now and still loving the work. I build the figures from the anatomy up, and never use pre made anatomy or heads. This is the only way to keep your sculpting fresh and make sure the structure and pose are sound. More to come in the coming weeks.. Phill
