    As soon as I am able to, I will post some pictures... This is going to be casted in both Smooth-Ons "Shellshock" resin in whole, as well as "Shellshock" and pewter or another low-heat melting-metal...

    So keep it here!!!

    -Adam

    Ok I think I did it...

    So yea, here is the first mock-up of the right, lower leg of Prime. I am only going to mock up the one side of the figure, being simply that, I can just flip the base over to sculpt the other 1/2 on the other side of the foam.

    Articulation is still being worked out on a logistics matter - this is going to be a big statue, so figuring how to build in the articulation with out adding too much excess weight to something already being cast in a low-heat-melt metal and resin, lighting and sounds.

    So, when the mock-up of the right side is finished the final scaling can be finished, the pieces can be sculpted, and the molds can be made and pieces poured.

    QFT. I mean, it's cool if you want to share your work and all (we all do and enjoy it), but at least show us SOMETHING. It defeats the entire purpose of having a custom or WIP thread.

    The idea sounds cool and I'm looking forward to seeing it, so get something up, man.

    You got it, man. Just go back to your original post up top and attach the images there instead and you're set (you can then choose the image you'd like to show next to your name on the forum). It looks cool so far--can't wait to see more. Using foam board is pretty cool to help plan out your work--nice.
