Easily among the best merchandize ever produced. If Hakusensha weren't so finicky I'd suggest you try and become an official partner.

Thank you! It's been a very long way to reach this progress.

I'm seriously considering it. I started working on another important character... I think people will like it.

Agreed w/ these guys, this is top notch, looking forward to seeing it painted!

Thank you! It's on the way.

Those are really great. :guts:

Thank you!

Had some time to work on this guy... Really fun to sculpt this character. Always interesting to play with the shapes.

It's amazing to see he bears similarities with Zodd and yet he's really different. Reading again the manga, and didn't remember how big he was... I wonder If he could have been a serious threat to Zodd If he hadn't been severely wounded by Guts right before his execution.


Anyways, here is another render of my Guts on the seahorse. A few things to improve but it's almost finished.

...Nah. Zodd towers above simple brutes like Wyald.

P.S. His motto is "Enjoy & Exciting".

Awesome work! It does look like you had a good time with it. :guts: His expression looks really natural, and his fuzzy friend's "expression" is cracking me up. :ganishka:

Looks great, I think the more atmospheric lighting you chose for this rendering does justice to all of your hard work in sculpting the details in the muscle and fabric. :carcus:

I believe you're right, I just thought that in matter of brute force wyald is probably superior (?)

I was looking for his motto, without any errors so thank you!

Thank you Grail. His dog gave me some hard time to do since I didn't use automatic symetry, which is why it's draft like that.. But it's always good for practice. I really want to complete at least his portrait (was working on the rough I made with Guts strangling him but didn't get enough time).

About the lighting and other on Guts it's really thanks to luck  :carcus: I really need to take lessons on lighting and rendering...

Haha no way man, Zodd is unstoppable, he went through a stone wall in volume 22, destroying Godot's cave in the process, and that barely gave him pause. He would have ripped Wyald apart, like a tiger mangling a baboon.

I just can't get over the level of detail you're able to get on these, even down to the grain of the wood on the beams of the ship. They look awesome!  :ubik:

You're actually right, I didn't think about that. But still, just what Wyald did with the trunks... I'm not sure about the baboon, isn't Wyald closer to a gorilla? If Zodd is a tiger, a gorilla should be a good match for him. But I think the main difference is the ferocity of Zodd and pure rage, while using refined warrior skills ( at least when he's not transformed ). Wyald doesn't seem to care about such things ( fighting with a wooden branch...  :ganishka: )
Plus, a Golden Age Guts wounded to death an apostle Wyald, while I'm not sure Guts could have harmed the same way Zodd...

Well the door was wide open for me... now to see Rakshas sloth form soon...  :ganishka:

Thank you! Well it's like everything, we all suck and then by spending countless hours we improve...

Thank you! I'm glad there are other detail freaks here  :SK: and as you probably saw some of the wood grain and other parts need some rework (hand & knots bandages ) ... I'm on it.
Talking about the Ship, I originally had in mind sculpting some pieces on the outside of the wooden planks but I have no Idea what they are and I'm lacking reference material...

Anyways, I made two more 3D renders, close ups for details lovers like me  :serpico: who knows, it can also serve as wallpaper  :carcus:
Enjoy!

Really, all I meant was that Zodd would slaughter Wyald, I wasn't trying to pinpoint what ape he's most similar to. There are many reasons for Zodd's superiority, be it his fighting skills, his brute strength, his regenerative abilities or his ferocity in battle. I don't want to dwell on this, but I think the portrayal of both characters in the series makes it abundantly clear how big of a gap there is between them.

Thanks! I definitely appreciate the attention to detail! On that subject, I like what you did with the texture on Guts' cloak, too.  :serpico:

Any chance you'd want to see these in bronze or aluminum? I'm into casting metal and I think these would be very easy to make molds with.

Thank you. I think that's the kind of detail which makes a difference. I also believe it would be a crime not to do this kind of thing since it's inspired by such detailed artworks as well.

That's a nice Idea and I've been also thinking about it myself. I will release my first statue and I will see for everything else. Tomorrow will be a big day regarding this matter!

Anyway, reading the last 2 episodes I couldn't help myself but to start a Tarpasa... They are so badass.... !!!  :guts:

Thank you Rezin. Yes I've thought about it  :serpico: but... At first it was supposed to be a speed sketch, of the head.. Then I wanted to make the full body...So I will stop for now on this since I got way too many things I must finish first..
I'm currently working on my second bust. It's still very draft and this will be the most challenging character for me.

The Tapasa looks great! Now can you make one that's smiling? Just joking.  :slan: Also I think you managed to make Griffith look quite predatory and sinister. Wonderful job!  :ubik:

Sounds like you've got a lot on your plate, looking forward to seeing what other characters you decide to create.
Good luck with Griffith, I'm sure crafting that armor of his will be a worthy challenge!  :griffnotevil:

Haha don't tempt me !! But that wouldn't take too long to make.. Why not, in the next few days  :ganishka:
Yes, you're right. Probably too much predatory and too much sinister. I will correct that.

Oh yes... Got more than 10 sculptures to finish and print... Still a lot of work to do with very few free time.
The armor isn't the problem, I think his face is the hardest part, and his hair... My god they will take so much time haha. But that's what makes him such a great character too !  :guts:

I almost forgot, probably the emotion... I've been waiting for a VERY LONG time this prototype v2 of my bust... Here it is !!
