Fun with the Figs

The only part that was cast in resin, then, was the base. Everything else remains Sculpey, painted with acrylic and chalk pastels for highlights and shading.

This was, I believe, the first sculpt I did with the hopes of making a kit. Like in the case of Lobo and Dawg, my lack of moldmaking skills prevented this. Example, the fingers are very small and thin. At the time I wasn't willing to sacrifice the sculpture in order to make the mold, which often happens when casting delicate pieces.

This werewolf in mid-transformation is meant to recreate a scene from one of my books, The Werewolf Chronicles. The main character Lorraine is a dancer, and so is often dressed in workout clothes. Her first transformation actually occurs while working out in a gym, but a "gym" base (meaning a polished wooden floor) would have been a bit boring. Hence the more traditional forest-style base. As you can see, I went for an asymmetrical look for the change, including in the face.

If interested, "Lorraine" is available now for $100.
