I wanted to share a personal project of mine, I'm working on a lineup of collectible figures based off of mythological creatures that I'm calling "Crystel's Chimeras" With that kind of name of course I had to start off with a chimera!
I have a store up at http://crystelschimeras.com/
and a newsletter here
if anyone wants to follow this at all.
To talk about the process for the chimera a bit-
I started doing a couple sketches in zbrush/painting over them in photoshop to get an idea of where I wanted to go with it. My buddy (onelung) pushed me to go for a more dynamic pose and I ended up settling on one where he was chasing his tail.
I took that idea and polished it up
Since ownage is known for their quality work, I contacted them and got things going. I decided to go with a run of 40 and to sell them as a limited edition figure.
They never sent images of the final casts, but I was thrilled when they arrived and looked like this. They've arrived as one piece and all the seams have been filled/smoothed out.
I'll do a photo dump again when I have results for the gargoyle.
I'm very excited to be trying out a different approach for that one so hopefully it goes well.
