Executioner Sculpture by artanis-one Executioner Sculpture by artanis-one
My entry for the Resident Evil :Envision the Executioner contest.

Let me start off by saying this was the most challenging thing I ever had to make.

Mostly because of the time limit, I started about 1 and a half weeks ago before the deadline and employed every technique I had every learned about sculpture and painting.

I used welding for the axe which is an actual metal blade, who claimed its first casualty during production. (me, index finger while sharpening – doh).
The Axe weighs about 1.43 lbs, I took it to a meat market and had it put on the food scale. My sculpture can hold the axe using his hands without having it being attached permanently.

His body and Apron and cowl are all separate pieces. Then made a stand out of scrap metal, welding rebar and 1/2'' gauge steel rod.

The meat hooks were forged out of steel rods, by bending them using a vice and a hammer and anvil to get the right bend. Then sharpened to a point using files. Everything save for the chain was hand made by me. Progress shots can be found on my website

I first looked at the character, who is this executioner, a giant who wields an equally immense weapon. So I thought about real life people who reminded me of him, I looked at actor, Nathan Jones and Eric “butterbean” Esch, who is a big guy and can really knock people out and also sumo wrestlers who are immensely strong athletes. I studied their physiques I began to get an idea of his physical characteristic. Using the ecorché method I created the body, a hybrid of a strong man who had a lot of mass. I looked at the video game images and also the toy, I noticed that the NECA’s version of the Executioner was a bit off. The forearms were really scrawny, and I felt that if someone that needs to wield such a big weapon, his legs were too small, so I decided to create what I think is more a more adequate body type, someone with huge latissimus dorsai and trapezius for lifting and pulling and also strong calves and quads from always having dead weight around him.
So I hope you enjoyed this sculpture.

For a 360 view of the piece.

Yeah I justed ordered 30 lbs of super sculpey at $7.50 a lb (shipping included) so I'll start as soon as it gets here. But sculpting takes a lot of time as I know you're familiar with, I dont know if I'll be able to do much when I find a job. You should enter the contests next time. I've seen your stuff. Its great!

thanks again dude :) yah maybe i should enter some contest next times, simply cause sculpts (well done ones) are still rare on devart, compared to the other mediums. so sculptors should have a better chance than drawers, etc.

u should try sculpey firm. or mix it 50/50 with the normal flesh colored. works best for my taste.

good luck with the job and the claying, cya around!

yeah thats what I use :)

Sometimes I mix 8 lbs of ss with half a lb of white sculpey 3 and black sculpey 3. ( this was before they came out with firm) Good times.

I think my next endeavor will be mask making.... been checking out Michaelloh.deviantart.com and kinda inspired..
