Hey Gang,

I just finished up this fun piece. Man Howard did an outstanding
job on this sculpt.

Boris Karloff as the Bride of Frankenstein Monster

A 1/1 Resin Cast Bust

For anyone who has not heard of Basil Gogos, he is an incredibly
talented painter who painted many of the classic monsters in a
bright colorful style. Many of his paintings were used as covers of
the Famous Monsters Magazines that most of grew up with.
Check out his web site - http://www.basilgogos.com/

Well I have been waiting for the opportunity to try this style again.
When Howard told me he was going to sculpt a new Monster in the
pose similar to one of Basil Gogos paintings, I new that I would soon
have my chance.

I really love this style, itÂ’s fun to try something totally outside of the box
once in a while.

For more info on how to get one of these outstanding busts contact
Howard at - info@howardsstudios.com


Thanks for Looking.

(btw: is the background digitally added or is it a painted backdrop?)

OK, here's how cool that is: Take the coolest thing you can find, make it a little cooler, then refrigerate it over night.

When I scrolled down and saw the pics, I thought, "OK, yes, I'm very familiar with Gogos's work. So, there are the paintings he's basing his paintjob on. Hey. Where's the pics of the bust?" I'm still not convinced that it's not a picture of a painting.

Holy smokes.

I've been without internet as of yesterday and logged in right now from work (thanks for the heads up Howard.). This looks absolutely stunning Jeff. Incredibly hard to believe that this is a 3-dimensional object. I know if I show these pics to anyone here at work they won't believe it's not an actual Gogos 2-D painting.

I was stunned when Howard first unveiled this sculpt - I'm just floored with Jeff's finish. You guys make a great team. Simply unbelievable. I still can't believe my eyes ...

Hey Gang,

Here are a few photos without the purple background to show that it truly is a
painted bust. LOL...

ok, That is simply amazing. I thought for sure it was just a painting ( A very nice one mind you) but w/ these added pics, my eyes hurt over the incredible paint job.

BRAVO.

That is incredible.

Just the whole idea of taking a resin bust and painting it to look like a 2D painting and duplicate the lighting effects is a amazing idea and you pulled it off perfectly. Perfect sculpt and perfect painting.

For those who haven't seen the original painting here it is:


and the original picture the painting and the pose of Howard's bust was inspired by:

I honestly scrolled up & down twice, and thought you forgot to attach the pics of the bust. I thought you were just showing paintings as reference. That is just amazing...

Ditto... with that purple background I couldn't see how it could literally be three dimensional. :p Completely amazing. I love it.

Now it just looks like a painting before the background was finished.
