STRIGOI (polymer clay mini- bust , in progress)
“Strigoi, my sword sings of silver.”
From ‘The Strain’ by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
As most of you know, I work primarily in charcoal. Lately however, I’ve been doing some sculpting.
I’ve been reading /obsessing over 'The Strain' trilogy as of late; it’s been a tremendous source of inspiration so, naturally, I had to sculpt this strigoi (vampire of Romanian folklore). Can’t wait for the new TV series!
As you can see, it’s still rough---(fingerprints and all!) but I thought you may be interested in seeing this project through all its various stages. The ‘stinger’ is going be sharper, and I’m still doing some ‘carving out’ around the jaw, etc., etc.
I’ll be painting him, too, so check back frequently for new pics! Enjoy!
