Paul Komoda's Human Pathology Volume 2

Back in the 90's Paul Komoda designed & sculpted this compelling portrait of Joseph Merrick, aka The Elephant Man.

Molded & Cast by Luis De La Fuente of Grey Zon, this piece was extremely limited, available almost exclusively at model kit shows like Chiller in New Jersey.

On a trip back east last year, Paul unearthed the original Super Sculpey master from a box filled with other ancient treasures. Paul decided to rework the piece, refining certain details and designing a new base.

The picture above shows a rare glimpse into Paul's design process. After taking pictures of the sculpt, he draws on top of it working out the design. Once satisfied, he begins the sculpture.

The new version of the Elephant Man will be available sometime in January.

Agony Man & Friends

Here’s an Agony Man sculpture Paul created many years ago. Measuring in at 12 inches tall, and sculpted out of Super Sculpey, Paul felt the character wasn’t in enough Agony. The piece was ultimately abandoned. Be on the lookout for a new version of him sometime in the near future.

An old shot of Paul's workspace... The original Elephant Man sculpt (an early test casting) surrounded by some friends. Stay tuned for Version 2 of Paul's Elephant Man coming in January.

Paul Komoda's Dr. Channard Behind the Scenes...

Back in the mid 1990's Paul Komoda released his version of Dr. Channard, based on Clive Barker's Hellbound: Hellraiser 2.

Coming in at just over 1/6 scale this was a massive resin kit chock full of detail.
From the tight organic leather uniform to the twisted flesh of the massive tentacle suspending him above the base, this kit was a modeler's paradise.

Paul recently found a handful of sketches he did prior to sculpting this character.
We're thrilled to be able to share them with you for the first time.

To see more of Paul's work during that time, you can click HERE.

Hanging out at Jordu's Studio

It's a weekly tradition for many of us to go over to Jordu's studio and sculpt together.

It's always a great thrill to be around other sculptors working on your art.

Everyone working on various personal projects.

Jordu and his ghoul.

Norm working on his "Cleaner" Creature.

Shin Tanabe working on his Black Tinkerbell sculpture for Yamato.

Paul Komoda working on his Night Gaunt sculpt.
