I liked the way you play with the anatomic proportions. Pure talent!
June 29th, 2009, 04:57 AM
Really, really good works!
I like the dragon bust and the hulk... well, the girl too, but the dragon just rocks for its design.
June 29th, 2009, 05:13 AM
Yeah Frito's back! Phew I was getting withdrawal.
All you stuff here is great, my fave is the troll? grey guy. Real attitude.
Love your style, congrats on the spawn win!
June 29th, 2009, 10:45 AM
Wow you have been busy. very cool to see your work again. Reall love that dragon by the way. Great to see you getting stuff done. I need to get on the ball...
June 29th, 2009, 01:05 PM
TeaMonster hey there, its great to hear from you. i've been super busy and just havent had time to log on. or keep forgeting to :/ thanks for the kind words
June 29th, 2009, 01:21 PM
hey there guys here is something i had been working on the the bast 3 months and finally got done like a week ago.
i was comissioned to make a 3 foot dragon for a client. not only did i have to sculpt this guy out of super sculpey (which is super expenisve, excuse the pun lol) i had to mold him and make it cast it out of urethane.
so i decided to sculpt this guy in sections. here i'll show you all the processes it went through.
first up with the armature. i then started to sculpt the head first.
in the first pic i had my mom hold up this big guy because he was too top heavy and couldnt stand on his own (poor amature planning can hurt you down the line as this piece sorta did)
June 29th, 2009, 05:40 PM
Oh man....that is a really sick dragon! Welcome back!
June 29th, 2009, 11:39 PM
such a dragon would fit on top of my door XD
just awesome O.o
and one question: if you use wood as base, do you mold it later on instead of baking it? or does it work with the wood inside?
June 30th, 2009, 11:35 AM
Ah, this is wonderful. It's great to see the latest work collected together. Aside from the construction, the colors in your pieces really stand out. I can never seem to pull myself away from the clay long enough to get anything painted. I'm going to need a vacation from sculpting just to take care of that.
And the new dragon is already off and running. I'll be interested to see how you handle the wooden armature elements. I'm intrigued by your process, so I'll certainly be following along with the good work that's on the way.
July 1st, 2009, 11:38 AM
Thank you for the dragon pictures, it helps me (and I am sure others) see things build up from the core elements in style. I can take this and hopefully realise my own creations.
July 6th, 2009, 03:57 PM
here are some pics of the hulk, however these pics kinda suck ( i took them real fast before taking the bust to school and leaving it there on display)
will take some better ones once i get it back.
paint needs a little refining as well.
July 6th, 2009, 04:11 PM
here is a comission job i'm working on for a client on deviantart.com
the client fully designed this character and the pose she wanted it in.
the creature is tiger women (sorry for the lack of a better name lol)
i havent finished refining the figure and it still needs a tail, but i'd say its like 90% done
July 6th, 2009, 08:09 PM
Hector, awesome work as always loving the dragon and the new pieces. I still freaking love that Spidey Lizard dio. You are the man! I gotta start working again.
July 6th, 2009, 11:39 PM
thank you gys for the kind comments! it feels good to be back on these boards, everyone is cool and full of amazing talent.
July 9th, 2009, 05:55 AM
Your work is greatly inspiring! :) I've only recently touched on sculpting and this gives me such ideas! Thank you for sharing!
July 9th, 2009, 10:43 AM
Cool stuff, I'm always impressed by sculpture cause I can't really do it that well.
July 9th, 2009, 09:47 PM
Wow fritofrito, you have definitely got some talent there. I love the look of your dragons, the skin textures are amazing! please keep us updated on all of these sculpts!
July 10th, 2009, 01:01 AM
maddmaestro: nice to hear from you man, thanks for the kind words.
Corth: thank you very much, i just left you a comment in your thread. keep up the good work.
July 10th, 2009, 01:09 AM
here are some pics of my dragon bust before i painted it up.
after looking at these, i realized that i have to repaint my guy and pop out the details some more with the paints.
July 18th, 2009, 06:08 AM
so deviantart.com has set up this new online portfolio thing which i think is really awesome and great for people like me that suck at making websites.
please check it out and let me know what you think
here is the link http://hectorarcesculpture.daportfolio.com/
July 18th, 2009, 08:35 AM
WOW! excelent works! congratulations man.
July 21st, 2009, 03:14 PM
I'm drooling over your stuff. So good. So freaking cool. I love that huge dragon. Keep up the great work. The portfolio looks really good; it's cool that deviant set that up for people. Webdesign and artists don't mix very well. XD at least the ones I know.
July 27th, 2009, 02:27 PM
hey guys here are some WIPS of a new piece i'm working on
it's going to be a two piece statue containing Venom vs Carnage
Carnage will be jumping over venom.
right now i'm pretty much done sculpting venom and will have more pics of carnage soon.
July 27th, 2009, 02:28 PM
Timslacove thank you for kind words and tell me about it, i cannot even begin to comprehend websites and how they are formed lol i can barely manage this thing lol. but that web portfolio is so idoit proof its scary lol
July 27th, 2009, 03:45 PM
Very very, Great Works!! I'm Impressed...
July 30th, 2009, 02:52 PM
updated with some pics of venom vs. carnage
July 30th, 2009, 03:56 PM
Being a Venom fan, I have to say, that's really badass man. I like it! It's really reminiscent of the old and original Venom style. I'm glad you gave him more of a blue hue than a black hue, it really brings him out.
July 31st, 2009, 05:15 AM
the venom statue looks really cool, Loads of detail,But for me its your dragons that I really like.mmmmmmmmmmm
August 1st, 2009, 11:15 AM
Zero i love the old style, i think it held much more personallity than the new ones that have been around lately, i dont like the just hulk like venom, the venom from the McFarlane era was def my fave. thank you for the kind words.
Bongsplat thank you my friend, i have more dragon pics on the way ;)
August 1st, 2009, 07:34 PM
just two words
veiny crotch haha
great sculpts amazing dragonwork.
August 2nd, 2009, 02:41 PM
here is a comission piece i just finished for a client. this character is called Ash and was designed by my client.
August 2nd, 2009, 02:46 PM
All excellent....don't have much to critique on. Although isn't Venom supposed to be black instead of blue?
August 2nd, 2009, 03:21 PM
man these are amazing!!! the venom vs carnage sculpture is off the hook man!!
August 2nd, 2009, 04:26 PM
madcross hello my friend! thank you for the kind words and yeah venom is supposed to be black, but i kinda designed this venom to be like is Marvel vs. Capcom version, which is blue. in his first appearences venom seemed to be blue with a lot of black shadows or i guess had a lot of blue high lights. so he's more of a throw back to the old classic venom rather than the new bulky ones.
i've also done a black venom before and i couldnt see any of the muscle work i did so thats another reason ;)
August 2nd, 2009, 06:41 PM
These last two pieces have been stellar. I'm particularly fond of your team-up sculptures (hero vs. villain). I like seeing the way you handle the challenge of energy, interaction, and overall composition. And who doesn't love to see Spider-man and Venom throwing down?
I hope your client is happy with your translation of the character. I do think it's one of your best. It has a classic, resin kit feel to it. The sort of look I'd expect to see in Hobby Japan magazine. Can you post up the original art so we can see the work you put into the piece?
August 3rd, 2009, 12:56 AM
The best carnage Iīve ever seen in sculpture, congratulations!.
August 3rd, 2009, 05:05 PM
kingunicorn thank you for your kind words especially coming from such a skilled sculptor as yourself. you're pieces are truely stellar my friend. i'll upload some of the refernece pics when i get the chance.
fealform thank you very much!
August 6th, 2009, 01:56 PM
I'll say it again, I love your style, bags of energy in everything you do-Nothing but praise man!:bow:
August 6th, 2009, 02:02 PM
You are so good it's crazy. Really like that dragon.
August 9th, 2009, 02:44 AM
teamonster and blueknightfox thank you so much for kind words. they are truely appericiated
August 9th, 2009, 03:08 AM
Frito man, your dragon designs makes me wonder why you arenīt at weta workshop right now, designing Smaug!
August 9th, 2009, 01:33 PM
I love the carnage and venom sculpture.
I just don't like the blue on venom, he doesn't feel as scary as he's suppose to.
Otherwise I think it is an awesome sculpture. great work
August 9th, 2009, 01:35 PM
Your Dragon is ridiculously awesome...I love it. How long did it take you to do that?
Definitely inspires me to wanna do a life size piece.
August 9th, 2009, 02:05 PM
Doggy i will be applying there shortly :)
Solaire thanks for the kind words, i knew that when i painted venom blue some people would be put off by it, sence he is normally known to be all black. but this was more of a throw back to the original mcfarlane era venom, i grew up on his classic style, where he was more of just a really huge guy in the costume, but had more of a classic hero look than that of a villian, than in the newer comics where he's more hulk like and scary. I have also always loved the design from the Marvel vs. Capcom game, and in that he is all blue.
As for the dragon, it took me like 2 months to sculpt and mold the thing. i've sold like 10 of them to people.
August 9th, 2009, 02:28 PM
wow that is great...I have to get to that point where I do commissions. I just posted my first thread a couple of days ago.
August 11th, 2010, 12:35 AM
hey how mutch will it cost me if i asked you to make me one of these but just of carnage alone email me if you wanna do it and we can talk my email is [email protected]
August 11th, 2010, 07:09 AM
August 11th, 2010, 11:56 PM
Your statues are really badass, especialy the dragon!
One thing though, it bugs me how you didnt smooth the veins into Venom's skin enough, they don't look too correct the way you have em.
August 13th, 2010, 04:39 PM
Seriously impressive work! Your sculpts have so much life and energy and personality in them.
September 5th, 2010, 12:16 PM
loving the talent here. just so much detail.
September 5th, 2010, 08:46 PM
These are truly excellent. That is my favorite depiction of carnage in 3d ever.
September 7th, 2010, 12:25 AM
man i would love to see you do a piece of the scene where hulk ripped wolverine in half when they were in tibet. your work is awesome.
