Now for some more teasing pictures from the paint department (I might add even more later on)... Actually it's all a very time comsuming process which makes me value the work a lot more than I previously expected. At first I thought of these as resin toys but more and more they are really becoming a work of art. I'm going to call this kind of art "pop sculpture" from now on... no playing - no articulation - still looks like a toy. lol.

NAw, they are definitely a work of art. It's interesting to think of where the line falls: medium, production number, hand painting. Those are a few I bring to mind but it could be a good discussion topic of it's own. Irregardless these pics certainly show the pieces as hand crafted objects.

theraker, thanks a lot for the good comment. You're quite right.

And now for the final painted toys! Yesterday was the opening the graduate exhibition and I've managed to get everything done in time.

The figures range from 15 cm (Taro Kern) to 27 cm (Brent Sparr) and are painted with automotive effect paint. The first release edition is limited to two of each kind. Every toy is customized as well so even though it's an edition they are still unique.

Info on purchasing options and availability will come later.

Not sure why but these remind me of Paul Pope's work specially the top hat ones.
