Yoda:  It's papier mache.  Strips of paper (usually newsprint) coated with glue and then wrapped around to create three-dimensional shapes.  You can use wire armatures as a starting point, but it's not essential.

Azrael:  I don't sell them--it's illegal/unethical to profit from someone else's intellectual property without their consent/compensation.  My home is, as you say, just decorated with multitudes of little beasties I've made.

All the sculptures in this thread are paper mache? Seriously? Dang, that's impressive. Maybe elementary schools need to teach this kind instead of making masks lol

Would you take commissions on original IP creatures or characters?

I think most schools do teach papier mache, at least in the United States.  I can recall doing several papier mache projects in art class as a lad, usually by applying the strips to balloons to create hollow, lightweight constructs.

While I would consider doing a commission for an original work, generally, I just like to sculpt the things I want to make--I don't really enjoy having to deal with money, deadlines, and all the other stuff that goes with trying to turn a profit.

I think Kiem meant they should make awesome stuff like this instead of the lame crap they made us do with papier mache. :)

Cool. Good job.

Could you make something from a Zelda, Elder Scrolls or Diablo game?
I was once a pick up artist like you until I took an RPG to the knee.

Fyle:  The only Zelda sculpture I've made to date is an Octorok--I might make something else from one of the Zelda games someday.  Nothing from Diablo particularly enthralls me, and I've never played any of the Elder Scrolls games.

Here are my four latest pieces:

Mokoi [1997 Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers video game.]

That Dragon Fossil looks rather philosophical.

I feel he should be wearing a top hat while carrying a chained pocket watch in his open hand. Perhaps even the dastardly villain mustache, a cane in his other hand (daimond studded top, of course)...and perhaps a railroad track and damsel rope-tied on it. (Don't forget the black cape too)

I was pretty much just trying to replicate the sprite's pose in 3D, but I agree that the pose has a certain philosophical flavor to it--I suppose an undead dragon, assuming it still had a mind, would have much to ruminate about.

Here are eight new mini figures that I made recently.  They're all monsters from a 1998 Playstation first-person real-time RPG called Shadow Tower.

I've run out of unique things to say, but I'm always impressed by your work, Mac. It'd be awesome if you found a way to make money doing this.
