Fat Zombie painted by Jason Tarpley

I'm proud to show off Jason Tarpley's build up of my Fat Zombie kit! Jason really knocked this bad boy off the charts!

Jason is known for doing a large amount of research before each project, diving deep into the internet's darkest places. I think his research paid off!

I'll be posting the background story of the Fat Zombie and the world he lives in tomorrow.

Fat Zombies carry a variety of different weapons, many of them embedded in their flesh.

One such weapon you can see in the below picture - a tightly woven bomb, filled with bones, flesh and wires.

The outside casing or shell is a human head. When the moment is right, the fat zombie pulls a rip cord triggering the bomb to explode.

This causes a chain reaction triggering other areas of the fat zombie's body to release toxins and small violent creatures to the surrounding area.

The crab claws give a glimpse into one such creature!

For the full story, please check back tomorrow! And to see more of Jason's work please click HERE and HERE!

Paul Komoda's RanXerox Bust Version 2

Some of you might remember an earlier post of Paul's 1st pass at the Italian comicbook character Ranxerox.

This highly controversial character graced the pages of Heavy Metal magazine premiering in the early 80's.

After auctioning off the first sculpt, done in super sculpey, Paul decided to revisit the character, this time in wax. Wax allows for a higher level of detail and has many fantastic qualities.

This sculpt, still a work in progress will most likely be available in very limited quantities sometime in the future.

Paul Komoda's Human Pathology Vol. 2 - Harlequin Babies

We are pleased to show some new work in progress pictures of Paul's recent sculpture set "The Harlequin Babies."

This is Volume 2 of Paul's Human Pathology Series, showcasing a very rare and tragic condition called Harlequin Ichthyosis.

All pieces in this highly controversial series, showcase a variety of different medical conditions often of the most extreme variety.

Super Sculpey, 5" x 3" x 5" and
3" x 2" x 3"
