Painted in 2014 this project is still one of my favorites. A wonderfully posable robot kit by Antonio Piqui is the beginning for the piece. Other elements including a robotic paint dispenser were scratchbuilt. Check out the project log HERE
“Deep below the earth, where the light cannot reach, lurks a twisted thing. Over centuries, it has grown on blood and sacrifice to wrap its roots around the heart of the world. And it is said that when the millennium turns and the kingdoms of man are ripe, it will bear a single fruit.”
My first foray into the art of diorama. This idea lived in my head for many years ever since I painted the first versions of the models for the Privateer Press Studio. The canyon lands of the American south west are like a siren’s song to an Artist. They are ancient, lonely, and beautiful. The canyons remind me of my true scale in the world. They humble me with their scope through space and time. I love them for that reason.
This was the first bust I ever painted. He is a conversion of the popular “Tribe Chief Morrow” by Raffaele Picca.

This is an older piece painted in 2011. I fell in love with her and the subtle details achieved by the sculptor Yannick Henebo. I shifted the pose forward to reinforce the forward motion and added real feather fletching to the arrow. A tutorial of the feather work can be found HERE
Today I’m happy to present a Project Log on the creation of Arthur. He is a robotic artist I created. There is a lot to learn here about scratch building and how to approach a challenging project.
