These were a lot of fun, and terribly challenging to get right. Burton's style is so different than anything else I've ever done.. The forms, the surface texture, the structure and anatomy.. Everything is intricately customized and unique.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on actual scans of the actual puppets for study but could not use them as they were outdated. These were sculpted from scratch using dynamesh.
I managed to find some pictures online as well of the actual products from this years SDCC. Will post more pics when I find them.

Amazing job, you've totally nailed Burton's style.
Ya, he has a very unique stylie and your sculpts are so cool

Beautiful work. So the photos of the colored vinyl sculptures, are those your sculpt printed, or what you used for reference?
If it's the former, I just HAVE to ask: are you working for a company having you do these? I ask because printing for collectibles is what I'd like to do, as opposed to games or film like a lot of others.
Beautiful new sculpts! Tnx for posting the Magneto video link -> really shows the quality of the sculpt

Superb! fantastic designs to the core.
Love them all. Just saw the movie loved it as well. REally nice sculpts man. Would be nice to post a video someday and see you work.
Thanks a lot guys! Seeing magneto printed was a feast for me as well! I love how they've managed to maintain the floating effect considering the scale and weight of the piece.
polaroid29: The photographs are of the final products, so yes, those are prints of the digital sculpts that I've posted. I think Disney handled the paints and production for these. These came to me as a freelance gig. I was very lucky and fortunate to have had the chance to work on this line. To get into this line of work, visit the comic cons and try to expand your network with the collectibles industry people that go there.
