My name is Erick Sosa, I am a 35 year old professional sculptor. I have been sculpting since my wee years.
I started sculpting professionally at the age of 17 at Mattel toys, and ever since I have been doing toys, and lately ( past 7 years) statues for the collectibles industry.
I have worked for most of the big players in the industry, and love what I do. I have been sculpting traditionally for 18 years, and while I love it, the industry seems to be leaning more towards digital, so I decided to learn it! SO here I am.
I recently started playing with Zbrush, and took Ryan Kingslien’s online class, needless to say that helped me take off on my ZB journey.
I am still a complete neophyte, and have teamed up with Alex Pereira a seasoned CG animator, and friend.
Together we have created quite a few statues for the Marvel Universe and other properties.
I have recently started taking some online classes with David Richardson a very cool guy and a CG genius, and hopefully soon i will be able to create my models without worrying so much about my limitations.
I hope you will enjoy the images, they span from my very first zsketch to older stuff.
