Alice Action Figure Part 1: Sculpting the Body and Head

04 Jan

I really hadn’t planned to do action figures again. There are many steps in the process and it’s definitely a more complicated process than resin statue production, and that’s difficult enough! Still, Joe Brusha at Zenescope Entertainment had talked to me about giving it another try for some time and if not for his persistence, I don’t think this would have happened.  It also helps that I like the Zenescope characters’ looks and I had enjoyed sculpting the Alice/Calie statue very much.

We went with a classic pose and I sculpted her using a stunning Eric Basaldua drawing for the look of the costume, with minor modifications. The face is a composite of several artists’ interpretations, including mine and Eric’s.

So here she is so far. In the next update we’ll show the figure complete with hair and costume. Hope you like her!–CSM

    Ever think about doing a nude action figure?

    We’ve thought about making essentially a blank figure, but haven’t made a decision. Thanks for visiting the blog! – CSM

    Wow …great work !

    You are an amazing sculptor.

    Do you use the regular grey super sculpey, or the firm ? (or both at different stages )

    Very inspiring …thanks

    I meet you years ago @ Wizard World, glad to see you back sculpting figures again. Always loved the statues, but there’s something about your figures that always look fantastic!
