    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.

    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...

    Thanks for Looking, and ALL the GREAT Comments. B)

    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 thought the same thing. Where's the bust??

    Even with the white background it still looks like a painting.. :eek

    Amazing.. :thumbsup :thumbsup

    I STILL won't beleive that's a painted bust until I see it in person. ;) That is incredibly well done.. I still love the first Frankensein bust you did.

    You are one talented individual.

    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.

    That is too cool for words. I like this one even better than the first Gogos-style monster you did a while back. Those pictures really do look like paintings. Does it create the same optical illusion when viewed in person?

    ....my....eyes....deceive....me.....o_O

    I've looked at the pictures several times now and even with the white backdrop I can't convince my brain that it's a picture of a real bust?.?.?.

    Jeff, that's really a fresh approach there and you mastered it perfectly...

    Hey Mike,

    Actually he looks really neat in person. Of course the angle
    that matches the original painting is always the best, but
    the other views look cool too.

    Thanks.

    I can honestly say I have NEVER seen anything like that. The technique is absolutely perfect and you simply couldn't get more of a real life "painting" feeling. It reminds me of something out of Stepehen Spielbergs Amazing stories where a drawing or painting comes to life and walks around like a living thing. Absolutely stunnign work, Jeff.... and I don't even like Frankenstein.

    Sheesh.

    Outstandingly creative.

    Didn't believe it until those photos against white BG.
    Sometimes a real stroke of genius comes thru here that's just so different that it deserves great praise.

    SO

    Great Praise on you, Jeff.

    Looking forward to getting the book about the artist (just read review of it in FilmFax).
