A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to design and sculpt a line of statues for DC Direct. I did eight. It was one of those rare experiences where you get to explore different ways to present iconic characters in a way they hadn’t been seen before.
Creating a sense of motion was most important. I tried to accomplish this through pose and composition. All but one of the statues has a hollow, sculpted core that moves directionally opposite the exterior. Cast in clear, tinted resin, as you move around the piece, those opposing shapes create movement.
One of the all time cool things about the line was getting to design them in the style of J.C. Leyendecker. Yes, and they paid me to do it!
