As mentioned elsewhere on this forum, I want to start a Nosferatu-themed project. If everything goes well, I am going to present it at this year's Crisis in Antwerp.
Any progress will be documentd in this thread.
Smiley

While browsing through the net for hours in search of the right miniature, I realised that there are some nice Nosferatu-vampires around, but none seemed to fit the image I had in my head for this particular kind of vampire. So, I decided to sculpt my own.

Here are the first results:


This one was squished around a wire armature in one go, using one piece of green stuff. Man, this looks crappy!
 Sad



This one was made in two separate stages, legs first, then the coat and the arms in the second stage. I simply have torestrain myself and exercise my patience, sculpting seems not to be as straightforward as painting...
:cry:

I slept a few nights over these appalling results and began anew, recounting all the tips I got from Josef Ochmann in a brilliant workshop years ago...
The legs were made in the first stage, then the coat. The arms came next, after that, the hands. The face was done in a separate stage during Saturday evening. The sculpting tips on Matakishi's brilliant page have been very useful in this:
http://www.matakishi.com/bmbfaces.htm

Details like the buttons and a ring from a long dead love he wears came last.
Here he is, COUNT ORLOCK!!


Smiley
This is the FIRST ever full miniature I have sculpted and I cannot say that I do not like him...Cheesy

He is not finished, though. A scenic base will be added, pictures of it are to follow. Upon release, the base will be separate from the miniature as I simply hate to remove those cast-on bases from the miniatures.

What do You think?  Confused:

I think you've got a whole new career.

That, my friend, is bloody excellent. Never mind for a first attempt, it would stand the test with a lot of the commercially available figures out there.

The creepy hands in particular, are brilliantly done. Well done you!

Quick - make some more!

Hooray! Cheesy

And to quote Captain Blood: Quick, make some more! Why buy miniatures when you can make your own?

I'll buy one!  :love:

Excellent work on the arms especially the hands! One thing: I don't like the teeth (reminds me of a rabbit), but this doesn't destroy the aura of the whole miniature.

More a rat than a rabbit to me, but this is what Orlock looks by the end of the movie, doesn't he?

Exactly. During the film, he becomes progressively more rat-like. Here is a pic from the end:
