New Sketch/Concepting

Might do a nicer version and make a print out of it for the shop. Completed between drying coats on Mephistos for minutes at a time over the last couple days.

Mephisto Series 1 Details

Moving right along to my goal of a February 1st launch day, I have four more to do, two of which will be done in the next day or so. The final two are already mapped out.

Which means the complete Series 1 line up is settled!

1. Logo Mephisto
2. Ectoplasm Mephisto
3. Fall Mephisto
4. Great Odin's Mephisto
5. Alien Mutant Mephisto
6. Dr. Mephistofurter
7. Mephisto Meds
8. Mephisto 1138
9. Night of the Living Mephisto
10. Mephisto of the Black Depths

Each paint scheme is completely hand done by yours truly and will never be exactly recreated again. As I've said before, I'll re use themes, but only the Logo based Mephisto will make repeat appearances (and even then, he will always have a different expression).

I'll post links as soon as I have the store up... hopefully that's 02.01.10 but it may be a day or two later since there's a couple non painting set up/supply things I have to get taken care of as well.

So far I'm pretty proud of all my little Hellions, they're developing better than I'd expected.

Status Report!

So far I've knocked out the logo Mephisto (duh, pics in last post) and have finished an Ectoplasm Mephisto and Fall Mephisto. Finishing up Great Odin's Raven Mephisto now... then onto Mephisto 1138 and Dr. Mephistofurter. Pics will be posted one of these days, not sure if I want to reveal them all at once or as I do them. I'd hate for someone to see one and be like PFFFT! and miss one they might actually like later on.

Haven't decided if they will be part of the "official" waves or just one off's whenever I feel like doing one, but there will be Mephisto Zombies and maybe a couple icon parodies as well.

Moving right along...

Still shooting for a February release for these.

Mephisto Wave 1 figure 1

Ok a day later than I said, but here are the pics of the first Mephisto figure. I plan to release at least one logo inspired Mephisto per wave, though from wave to wave, the eye expressions will change. I'm currently painting up the rest of wave 1, all of which will have individual themes and varying levels of details appropriate to its theme.

I'll be posting images of the rest of wave 1 once it is complete and ready to be sold on a yet to be built ETSY store.

The great Mephisto is mostly pleased with his idols so far, hopefully you are too.

Every time I've ever held an artist's work that has been turned into a three dimensional piece, or even just an action figure based on an actor, I've always just thought wow, that must be really fun to see something brought to plastic (or vinyl or resin or whatever) life like that.

I'm finishing up the first two Mephistos (Mephisti?) right now and I stopped to just stare at them for a moment. I had my logo up on screen to get the eyes right. I had a three dimensional version of my logo sitting right in front of me.

The Mephisto logo isn't the most complicated thing to make/bring into the third dimension obviously. I am still immensely proud of the fact that it now exists. At the beginning of summer, when I redesigned my logo and finally determined it was time to push my art out of the sketchbook and into the world, I hadn't even conceived the idea of pursuing my own resin figure line.

Now that it sits before me, I can't help but smile.

Pics will follow! Hopefully by tonight, if not then first thing Monday morning for sure!
