Mythos Maquettes

Sunday, September 21, 2008

If you've been following the Mythos series (and I know I have), you may recognize some familiar faces (and props) in these photos. As I've mentioned previously, I like to sculpt maquettes for the main characters of the stories I illustrate. I was finally prompted to photograph all of them together for the Mythos hardcover.

I ended up going with this black and white photo for the book.


  1. What a great/creepy image. All those heads facing the same direction, you should have them all reading a book, watching T.V., or reading the blog.

  2. Impressive.
    I'd like very much to see a whole character, like magneto for example, or a johnny blaze/Ghost rider.

  3. If I ever find enough time, I'd love to do some more full figure sculptures. For the time being, I still have some old examples on my web-site.

  4. So many little heads! Haha, bad ass, man. Loving them.

  5. I'd like to see what you do with full figures bro. If you ever wanna discuss let me know. Great seein you and your pop upstairs after the Con in Baltimore. Hope you've been great since.

    1. I did one Red Sonja figure back in 2004, and one Mystique half-figure before then. I love sculpting, but it's a lot of work (and a long time before it's reproduced, at least in my experience). I'm currently picking away at some full-figure digital maquettes, which is a lot faster.

      Great seeing you at Baltimore. Glad you got to meet my Pops.
