UPDATE 1.4.13:

"WHEN HELL IS FULL, THE DEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH..."

UNMENSCH (Fall 2012):

Inspired by my love of zombies and designs from the game DUST, here're a pair of "Unmensch," German for "monster" or "brute." They're assembled from 25th Joes and 6" Marvel figure parts I had in the fodder graveyard.

Hasbro's Zombie Viper figure's sculpt was so insanely good that it needed a gross, realistic paint job to match. This Unmensch is less pristine than his intact counterpart (Mk I, see below). His decomposition is more advanced; pieces of his scalp are missing, and maggots have set into his face. Even better, his hands have much more articulation, allowing each individual finger to move... to get ahold of his prey as he lumbers toward them and never lets go. My favorite detail, though, is one you can't see: His one good eye can glow in the dark.

UNMENSCH MK I (Summer 2011):

My first attempt at the character. I'm still pleased with the paint application and the clunkiness of the robot gloves. The gloves left something to be desired, which led to the construction of a new pair, and, ultimately, a new figure.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! :drinkingbuddies:



Rediscovered my Photobucket account and thought I'd post some of my stuff.

First up is my entry for CustomCon, Gotham's Most Wanted:

"1939. While the rest of the world is at war, Gotham City is engulfed in a bloody conflict of its own. Often ranked as the most corrupt city in America, it is a breeding ground for mobsters, serial killers, and costumed 'freaks.' The Batman fights the worst of the worst. They are GOTHAM'S MOST WANTED."


THE JOKER:

The backgrounds are just as cool as the figures. Love the Scarecrow mask.

I love these guys, especially how they look like they're from the late 30s. Great work

Thank you gents for the compliments!

I've followed and admired all of your work, so it's really cool to finally figure out how to get my stuff posted!

More experiments coming soon from The Lab. Always open!

Happy New Year to y'all again!

These are great, Is the scarface one of those lego-like mini figures. He looks great. Good pics too, lighting is very good. All around great work!

Thank you Gaaway and Meddatron!

Medda, Scarface is mainly a kitbashed Minimate, for the blockiness and articulation. I wanted him to be a fully poseable figure instead of just an accessory.

More stuff coming soon. Keep your eyes peeled.

The customs are great in their own right but what set these above and beyond were the diorama settings. The combination just blew me away.

These are all really cool, but man I have a sense of deja vu in saying so. Oh, it's because I saw them on the custom con, I remember. I need to do some serious work on my Batman Rogues, to catch up with the bat family I've made, so I'm sure I will be borrowing some ideas here. Nice work, great vision.

So many gifted artists complimenting my work-- I feel like I'm on Punk'd or something. ALL of you have kept me inspired, so I just see it as paying it forward. Thank you all again.

I stumbled across working with diorama pieces while shooting pictures of a birthday present (Zer0 from Borderlands 2) for one of my best friends for my site. Since the photo session for Gotham's Most Wanted, the collection of dio pieces has almost doubled... 2013 is going to be a very good year at the Lab...
