You really captured the likeness of the Bat gremlin. Great piece, great portrait!!
Thankyou for all the nice words and comments.
I was lucky as after many an internet serch and not being able to find any proper decent pics of the actual bat gremlin prop I managed to get intouch with a few of the people who made sculpted and painted the origanal one from the movie and one of them kindly sent me a folder full of some really good decent pictures of the origanal prop from the movie. So that really helped me in trying to get a good likeness. he is far from perfect and no way as good as the origanlal But im happy with him. :-)
Feeling a bit stuck grrr anyone got any ideas on were I can find a model or toy gun similer to the one the bandit gremlin has? Even a kids toy gun that looks similer that I could modify to look a bit like it would help lol
Maybe one of those cheap transparent waterpistols could work?.
ive been looking on ebay but nothing seems to be the right sort of shape. i tryed to make a gun erlyer but it looks alwfull so gave up on that idea.
Wait until summer, then all toyshops will have waterguns for cheap.
Wow what a beast , great work! 7 ft , you may have to hang that bad boy from the ceiling!
Thats amazing work!!! It is one of my favs from G2, that and the Vegetable Gremlin!
Wow! That is amazing. Are you using a base sculpt for this or did you create it all yourself? Would love to have something like that in my collection! Great job.
Thats just Awesome!
You know you'll have to cast up a concrete one for the top of your house
I just posted on your mogwai thread. Your work is really, really cool man! Im excited to see what is next!
wow this bat gremlin is amazing, its almost "cute" i love the different stylizing on your gremlin items.
This is an incredible piece of work...
Im really interested in how you made the mold and the cast.
did you sculpt it as one piece then cut it up to mold it? and did you them effectively make a latex skin from the mould? and if so how did you do that? was it by painting latex onto the mold in layers? and what paints did you use?
im sorry for all the questions, im a keen puppet maker and sculpter and im just starting to explore mold making and the use of plastics and latex etc, and im a total novice to it and how to paint it so i just wandered what your process was as your work is so good!
If you have pesky kids visit your house for Halloween, you could frighten them off with those Gremlins if you wish to.
as for molding the bat gremlin it was made bit at a time. so sculpted the head then sculpted the body, then arms, legs wings etc all in separate pices but done so they would join together. Then I made two pice plaster molds of each bit.
I used latex to make the skins etc and when thick enough did another thin layer of latex and then cut the foam sponge to fit in each bit. then fixed it all together with wire inside to help pose and keep things in place.
As for painting its acrillics mixed with latex etc.
Awesome Gremlins! JEALOUS!
