McCoy Sculpt - painted sample! by DarrenCarnall McCoy Sculpt - painted sample! by DarrenCarnall
This is the McCoy sculpt I finished a short while ago... well I finally got around to painting it (but not before I'd resculpted it AGAIN to improve a few things)

Anyway... what do you think? I'm looking forward to doing more now :)

I do usually, but my diary for 2014 is pretty full with sculpting already.. I'll be taking on painting commissions when I can, but I can't really do any new sculpting ones at the moment no. Sorry! :(

By the way, what is the material you use to sculpt?

I did these in sculpting wax. It's very slow for me though building it up drip by drip and sculpting it as I go. I'm going to be doing Kirk in about a month and I might try to do it in clay first to get the main shape and proportion then cast it into wax to do the details. I'll see what I can do.. I need to get faster! lol

Unbe'Smeggin'lievable, the likeness is uncanny. I've only just started really with sculpting, and have found a ton of good sculptors here on DA, but nothing compares to this. If it wasn't for your hand being there, I would swear it was a photo of the real McCoy........so to speak !,....erm, no pun intended.

It has been a dream of mine to get into the commercial sculpting scene, having my sculpts made into resin cast kits to sell, a dream I am at the moment doing my utmost to achieve, but after seeing this, I realise that I have one hell of a way to go yet.

Bowing down on tortured knees !.

oh wow what a compliment. No I'm still learning myself... I follow sculptors on here and facebook that I consider 'real' sculptors... i'm just a bumbling idiot who's learning how to do this. I get the results eventually but i take FOREVER.... the real guys can knock out stuff like this so quickly.... I need to get faster!! But seriously... THANK YOU... you made me smile with my coffee this morning =D

Oh, and GOOD LUCK!!

I had to pick my jaw back up out of my lap when I saw this! It's uncanny (in a VERY good way) how very very realistic this is, in many ways. You captured the essence of McCoy, with the expression, detail, and paint. I don't know HOW you think that this is flawed. It's damn near perfect. You have an amazing talent with this medium. And I thought that BEFORE I saw the other amazing sculptures and repaints in your gallery.

I'm a huge Star Trek fan, and you've done this SO well, I'm looking at this expecting him to start talking or telling Capt. Kirk - "Dammit Jim, I'm a DOCTOR, not a sculpture!

Amazingly well done, once again. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Honestly, the best "Damn McCoy" I've ever seen. Is this gonna show up at Sideshow..? Because, if there is a set of these that's gonna be available, I might have to start saving my nickels and dimes.

Excellent!!

hah! no.. I'm not good enough yet. This was only my 2nd wax sculpt from scratch so I've still got a lot to learn. Plus I kind of enjoy doing my own thing at the moment (repainting other action figures for people is what I've been doing for 4 or 5 years now). Thanks though!!
