Creating the artist

Trying to capture the essence when sculpting and creating a scene like this, as if I were painting a portrait.

The Action Figures

I chose to recreate some of the elements that tells us a bit about the artist portrayed.

Things that are in his studio. During my research, I took photos of details, and made miniature versions in polymer clay and metal.

The sculls

Assorted animal sculls, sculpted, painted and stained.

Paintings

Simon Davis is a portrait painter as well as a comic book artist.

I recreated a few of of his paintings in miniature. Using oil on canvas.
