More Cipriano Goodness: Max Schreck as Nosferatu!

One of my favourite renditions of ol' ratface by Long Island sculptor Tony Cipriano. This was the short-run reissue by Needful Thing a few years ago. It's 1:4 scale and made of polyester resin. Painted with acrylics in 2005.

Cipriano's Cyclops

Complete forgotten paint job done 3 years ago. Just found these images on my hard drive: Tony Cipriano's take on the classic creature by Ray Harryhausen. Painted with acrylics and some airbrush enhancing, »not-so-fancy-base« added, made from some scrap wood.

The Serpent Terror from the Deep - Manda!

Inbetween illustrations, here is a another Garage Kit! Just finished: Manda (マンダ) the sea monster from the Toho movie »Atragon«. A challenging vinyl kit by the Japanese company »Paradise«. Its a whopping 60cm / 24" high, painted with acrylics and some airbrush Efx. The kit was missing the whiskers, they will be replaced soo. Some Photoshopped headshots thrown in for good measure.
