54mm 'Bandeirante' miniature

This is my first historical sculpt, it´s a private commission work I´ve started on Friday night for a collector, it´s a 54mm Bandeirante expeditioner. I´ve taken about 8 hours to sculpt this miniature, and it will be the first of a set of 12 figures, being 6 Bandeirantes and 6 Indians. The weapons like rifle, pistol, and knife will be added later as they´re arriving from U.S.

P.S. Although this is sculpt was hella fun to do and a HUGE challenge to sculpt is such small scale, (even smaller than my Rocketeer), I gotta admit that I´m afraid that I´m going to get blind by the end of this work. lol

'Helloween Jack' completed.

Halloween´s Grim Reaper is finally completed. Hopefully this
sculpt will become a kit, still pending authorization by the character´s creator. If I get the ok, then this statue will be produced in a very limited run. My plan is to start molding Jack this month and have him ready by March, I just hope I can find some time to mold, cast and paint him, as I´m working on another sculpts.

Thanks for your time. Hope you like it.

P.S. You know what? at the begining I wasn´t too confident about this project, because I wasn´t sure how it would turn out, but right now at the end I really dig this mofo. I think it´s a really cool Halloween piece.

"How do I look?"

"Like a hood ornament." This is just a small sculpture I´m doing for practicing, I picked up Rocketeer, because it happens to be one of my favorite movies from the 90´s. This little flying hero, stands around 3,5" tall and I´m sculpting into 3 parts, base stand, rocket pack and Rocketeer. I´m currently detailing the rocket pack and I will have more pictures later. Thanks for looking.

Sculptor for Hire!

(pictured left is Jack Torrance from The Shinning. sculpt by Chris - Headsupcustoms)

Hello boyos (and gals),

Andre here, today I´m not gonna post any current work of mine, just not yet, but instead I´m gonna post a couple of pics of some of my good bud Chris (HeadsUpCustoms) works. Chris is an AMAZING talented sculptor with his headquarter located in New Jersey, and have an outstanding portfolio and can sculpt basically ANYTHING you want. Chris, like any other sculptor is trying to make his way into the sculpting career, he is an exprienced sculptor who have been sculpting for 6 years now, and even had the honor to spend about 3 months traning his sculpting skills at NECA (Reel Toys) under the tutelage of the incredible sculptor Ray Santolieri. I guess it´s needless to say anything else about Chris´s talent and skills as sculptor right?
Well, my good fella Chris just got back from a short trip to Japan, and is now taking commissions, for statues, figures and kits. He will take commission works for any person who might want a character made into 3D form, it can be any character from Fantasy, Cartoon, Comic Book, Movies, Animals, Monsters, Human...basically anything you have in mind. This is your opportunity to get your sculpt done by Headsupcustoms, but hurry up, before he get too loaded up and your commission may take a little while to get done.

So, if you would like to get anything sculpted, just get in touch with Chris and let he transfer your idea into clay and I can guarantee you will be 100% satisfied with the final product.

Take a look at Chris´ online portfolio for more reference of his amazing work and to see how his sculpts applies to a variety of characters and sculpting styles.
