Magdalena 1 by rvbhal Magdalena 1 by rvbhal
Beginings of a new hobby inspired in comic figures.

The piece in the photo was created by me, inspired in the caracter Magdalena from "The Magdalena" by Eric "Ebas" Basaldua.

Materials and technic used:
Wax prototype being turned into acryllics while the finer details are made in metal(like hands, hair and weapon&attachements).

(The teeth molds in the photo are work related...)

More pictures and sculptures to come(hopefully)

that sounds so stupid, but it´s true

I´m sad that I don´t know the comec, had to be epic if you made a model out of it
at least that is what i read from that x.x i´m too tired to think if i translated it right

Great work!  When you say acrylics,  which kit or specific material are you using please?   There are variations and your excellent Ariel statue, I would like to work with exactly the same material you used on Magdalena and on Ariel.

The teeth are made from the denture making resin I take it?
Thanks

Magdalena is a very old piece . Completely different material wise from the little mermaid.
I did so at the time out of sheer ignorance as to modern sculpting clays .

Less work  with better results .Today .

Nowadays I use polymer clay mostly , and if I need more mechanical toughness I use epoxy , like the fins on Ariel.
Magdalena is purely acrylic resin and metal . Much more work and with size constraints. (much smaller )

My area is not the orthodontics. I do more the porcelain crows and bridges.(Prosthetics)
I have nothing to complain. It pays my bills.

I sculpt and cast in bronze; more abstract figure pieces. I have been considering doing some more detailed pieces with super sculpy. What materials are you using?

:iconrvbhal:
rvbhal Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2008  Professional Artisan Crafter
Wow , nice, I have great respect for people who can cast bronze pieces. I read somewhere how work intensive that is.(and difficult)
I use sculpey firm, oilclay and wax basically.

In the annex of the comic book was a series of sketches from different magdalena outfits.
You had some great ideas for her there.
Though choice to pick one....
