AvPR - Requiem Alien Hybrid PredAlien Sculpture

Whilst looking over some of the artists on myspace Steve Wang’s work is at the top of the game when it comes to sculpting for the Alien Predator franchises, he’s worked on many of the title creatures from as far back as Predator in the 80’s up to the latest offerings in AvPR.

It’s been a while since I did any new work for Mysteria Models or the garage kit industry and having already a new sculpture that’s been waiting for a release ive decided to do something mainstream. The Alien Hybrid PredAlien sculpture will be the flagship release if you like, with the kind of interest it will generate it should open the door nicely to a future kit company. Expected release sometime in the second half of the year with hopeful coverage in Amazing Figure Modeler, so stay tuned for more updates on this work and any of the other kits that will make up the new product line.

Orang-utan sculpture study

I decided a while back to start doing some life studies in clay, here’s one of the first of a young Orang-utan Ape sculpture, the image reference for the sculpt was from a birthday card I picked up in Boarders bookstore, I saw the card and thought that would make a cute project and reflect something other than the stuff I’ve been working on recently.
