    Check out what's been going down in china town-

    gallery of new and old statues (all for sale):

    http://futantshadow.deviantart.com/gallery/

    news and discussion of new statues, including characters for the chess set, plus, connect with lots of fan pages (especially marvelous chester, if his page gets 100 likes, I'll make the marvelous chester special edition chess piece!):

    thank you! and yes, I agree- I am not very happy with how this Quelaag came out; I do plan to redo her at some point, but her being a little over an inch tall (and her face being about a cm tall) it is almost impossible to sculpt it looking how I want :/

    Ever thought about making a complete set of chesspieces with DkS characters?

    Could be like
    Hollow Soldier(pawn)
    Berenike(rook,they have a tower shield)
    Artorias(knight)
    Havel(bishop)
    Witch of Izalith(queen)
    Gwyn(king)

    Yes I made them, thank you! I made the statues for Namco's "treasures untold" contest for Dark Souls as well- keep getting requests for commissions so I started making them and it just grew happy

    yes- a full chess set of Dark Souls vs Demon's Souls characters is the plan, but likely won't happen for approximately 1 year due to extreme business on other projects (and the chess set being so many characters it will take a long time). I also plan on creating the chess board with souls themes, and additional characters for people to collect and customize their set. There may even be a Dark Souls 2 army to play with also!

    I've always loved the Bell Gargoyle from the contest statues. That one and the Gaping Dragon one are amazing. The rest are you know, just great big grin

    The amount of detail on the armors is just unbelievable man. What material do you make it out of, and how much time does it take to get all that detail in?

    How long it takes to make each one?

    it really just depends, a 1 foot tall statue of a figure usually takes about 50 hours to sculpt, depending on the details and layers (of things like armor, clothing, weapons, etc.)

    the gaping dragon took about 6 weeks of non-stop work, because it was so big (about 3 foot wide wing-span), 2 sets of wings, 150+ teeth, and scales.

    I've managed to mold and cast the pieces that I'm selling, so I am able to offer them for a lot less (like $100 instead of $500-1000, for example), and still make them highly collectable as the series are short print (100 or less in each case).

    I use mostly magic sculpt (self drying epoxy) for most of the statues, then cast in smooth-on products. I work quite fast so the detail doesn't take all that long, but it's when there is a LOT of detail work to do that takes a long time, and many parts- like the large Artorias statue I made 18 separate molds to create him, which allows me to piece him together in a varied of positions (I'll have a couple more examples in 1-2 weeks).

    Excellent work. I'm an artist myself. I'm so glad you found a way to make money while doing something you love. I had to actually...well we wont get into it.

    You're very talented. You get a mold together for a whole chess set, whether it be Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, or Dark Souls 2 and I might just save up for it.

    Your attention to detail is amazing. Kudos bud. Bow

    I think the Smough's Hammer could be improved. I really love the Siegmeyer one though, absolutely amazing. Good job! silly

    Edit: I saw your old Black Knight mini bust once, and just now noticed the improved version. The improved one is most certainly of great quality too! Once again, well done!

    Let's not talk about them being for sale or buying them. I would hate to lock this topic. Those statues are impressive.

    Again more awesome work. Man how I wish I could pay for the Siegmeyer statue but don't have the cash.
    Still have the Black Knight Bust and Elite Knight Bust, those are still awesome.
