Awesomness! Very Gerry Anderson thing going there.

Thanks for all the comments. Just about done with the skin texture, going to pop him in the halogen oven before a careless finger squashes all that work...

I have a number of different ideas for the shell... plain vanilla shell, representing the snail in its wild, untamed state, grazing among the fungi in some dank cave, an armoured shell with fearless goblin snail rider, wielding his deadly snail goad, and mabye a civilian version, a travelling goblin mechant on his pack-snail, or a goblin fungus farmer, driving his snail cart to market...

...the risk here is getting distracted by too many ideas. I'd better just stick to one for now.

More progress... each of those wrinkles on the snails back has to be done one at a time... take a 1mm blob of beesputty, put it on the snail, squash, repeat... I did try making a tool to add the texture, but it just did not look as good, so the hard way it is.

eyestalks are taking shape, will have to start on the shell soon. I am wondering if I should do the shell as a seperate piece, that way it can be used as both a giant snail and a giant slug...

Also added a guard to the cork, so I did not keep on squashing the snail's tail every time I turned the cork. :crazy:

I am intrigued... I only sculpted that this year. How did you manage to scan a picture of him from an early 1980s Citadel Journal?

Back after a long absence... Computer went on the fritz, blue screen of death, no internet access, recovery partition on HDD don't fix problem, recovery disk only has windows XP, seriously considering switching to Ubuntu, early xmas present of new computer, Install new software, getting to grips with GIMP, had to find out what acronym actually stood for before I dared to google for it, finally back! What have I been doing?

Early work in progress shots of goblin war snail. How better to survive the battle than to make sure you always turn up late? Texture on the snails back is taking forever, and actually feeling slightly ill doing the crinkly bits along the sudopod...  :sick:
Feels good to be emerging from long creative malaise at last, hope to get some more WiP pics up soon.

Still have not painted that fish in a spacesuit yet. :tumbleweed:

Awsomeness abounds... It would be fun if they could keep that glowing green look on the backpacks when they are painted

Some progress made. Mold made, hand cast in metal, based & tastefully landscaped. Just need to get around to painting him...

@Inso: Totally forgot to take comparison pic for scale. Doh. He is about 27 millimeters to the eyes though

It reminds me a lot of some of the designs from the Earthworm Jim games.
Go forth my watery minions, and destroyah! destroyah!! destroyah!!!

"Friendly" Kobold, finished at last

Kobold with flint knife. Something of a caveman theme developing with these guys...

More Work in progress. Those teeth were remarkably fiddly. Trying to give the kobolds a little more personality, don't want them to get too samey.

Does anybody make a roman legionary goblin? ...Damn! Now you've given me another idea.

I love it. A clear dome on top would be great!
If you care to invent a clear sculpting putty...
The idea was that the spacesuit is his fishbowl. I have some ideas for a starship design too... hmmm

Been messing around with Beesputty, turned out like this. Should I do more, or is he just too weird? What kind of psychic powers would fish have? He must have some, cos how else does he reach the controls of his ship with those stubby little fins?
I have already cast him, next step is to get it painted...

love that broom. I'd love to see all the progress images for a gobo side by side. maybe you could get into the habbit of taking a snap after each session :P asking too much? :) maybe put them into a gif :P
Fat chance... what makes you think I am that organized? Just count the gaps between posts... :tumbleweed:

Anyway, some progress has been made...

Kobold mit Thagomizer, nearly done...

Kobold WiP...

WiP "friendly" Kobold...

Anyone got any good names for a Goblin jester? I thought maybe "Alias"

Great stuff! I really like those wagons  :thumbup: And here is me, still trying to do it the old fashioned way...

Fingers crossed they all come out OK... In the meantime, another work in progress:

Broom Hilda, don't step on her nice clean floor.

I cannot add anything, except to say I really, really like this one! Now you need to do a sci-fi Troll, and a sci-fi bridge...

Perhaps make the sword black, then highlight up to green? Great paintjob anyway; and kudos on the non-standard colour scheme! Now we know what happens when a smurf plays with wyrdstone...

Excellent work on the eyes. Nice freehanding on the yellow piping too. You wield a steady paintbrush :thumbup:

I click on the thread, and have to wait several seconds as dozen upon dozen of colourful pictures appear on my screen... I really wish I could match even half your productivity. :respect:

OK, probably past time I posted some updates here...  :tumbleweed:

TWELVE OF THE CLOCK AND ALL'S WELL!!!!!!!!! Causing insomnia for the entire village, the goblin town crier.

Tavern goblins. Here we have Burt, proprietor of The Lazy Kobold, and Spilem, the serving gobbo of the same establishment.

These are very cool. I particularly like Bot #2, it's creepily sinister :thumbup:
Any more progress on these?

It is a terrible shame. I am torn between celebrating the all the stuff he produced, and regretting all of the stuff he will never write.

Mort was the first one I read, way back in  1989, and still my favourite, but Good Omens is excellent too

More progress... and a huge setback.

Picture #1 shows Zelda the goblin matriarch nearing completion. Picture #2 shows the hairline crack that formed when I was easing the sculpt off the cork. This runs from the right foot all the way up to the waist. The sculpt is not falling to pieces or anything,  but still this is going to have to be fixed before she can go for molding, which means re-sculpting most of the skirt. 

8:::  :blub: Knickersknickersknickersknickersknickersknickersknickers!!!!!!! :tantrum:

And after all the time I spent sculpting that baby goblin. I am feeling quite demoralized right now.  :grrr:

These are very interesting, what I can see here looks pretty good, nice clear detail, no soft edges or visible thumbprints. I would love to see some more.

Slow process and not finishing a lot yet. This mostly due to the learning process and also motivation!
I know that feeling :) as Inso said, the more you try the better you get.

I've done some armatures and messed around with the stuff but I've chucked out most of them already as there were just so many mistakes!
I did the same with my early failures. Now I sort of wish I had kept some. When you look at the old stuff, you can see how far you have come. And sometimes you see a technique you were using early on, and think "why did I stop doing that?"

I am really glad I did his head/face first! It helps visualizing the whole piece a lot and in my opinion shows the character it already has and it inspires me continue and actually finish someting!
Maybe I should try this approach. I have mostly been starting at the feet and working up.
