Thank you for the messages and all the interest in the new Yith statue, as I promised the Lovecraftian line continues. But before pre-orders and production it needs some things to be prepared, like the color palette, cut pieces, engineering, weight optimization, final size, package design and shipping cost.
So, I’ll notify all updates about Yith when I finish every phase, but also, I need to continue with most of backlogs that have being accumulated during 6 months of quarantine in my country, that it’s my priority right now.
About the new lockdowns, I know that some countries have returned to lockdown, in my case government have not any order yet about it, so I’ll continue with my work normally.
Here’s another update about Inuto and the paint progress. The yellow color is one of the most complex to paint, it requires many layers to get the correct color palette that I have create for this design.I’m detailing right now the shadows between every skin wrinkle, so it takes time but achieve a great depth to details.Thank you for your patience.
Another update. This sneak peek will be the next release in the statues line, I’m working on it and hope to finish it by mid-October.Inutos orders and Nyarlathotep orders are progressing little by little in their painting phase.Thank you for your patience.
Inuto is a complex design, it need balance between the body and the base, the proportion and anatomy need to have sense in his own fictional world and taking that to the real world is very difficult, this statue had two previous versions as prototype and after a lot of modifications this is the final result.In these new pics, you can appreciate the statue better here, you can see all the new anatomy, proportion, position and base size of the creature, all of this was resculpted to achieve a better result.I’m feel very happy with this final result after a lot of changes, now I’m going to start the paint job for this copy first. I forgot to say, this is a production copy.Thank you so much for your support, waiting and patience.
Finally I have return to this project that was paused months ago and now the statue is finished and ready to the paintjob phase. This is the resculpted version that has a lot of improvements compared to the last version that I have made the last year.
This is a production progress video of the Inuto 45cm new edition, all mainpieces are magnetized(arms, head,torso and legs).
These last six months was very hard, I was very close to a bankrupt and after a big quarantine in my country, today I’m going back to work little by little in a lot of stopped and unfinished projects, I hope recover from this hard blow that has affected us all.Thank you for all patience and support that you have give to me.The statue line continues with new sculpts, projects and releases but slowy. Here is an update of a new creature in progress that I started a lot of months ago.
These days are being very hard by the current global crisis, and this affect me and my independent studio.
In this moment I can continue work because I have my workshop in my own
home but the situation is very difficult. I can’t buy supplies for my
work for now, because the country is in emergency state, people are in
isolation, the majority of materials are not in production and the cost
are to high right now. At the moment, the main materials for production
and shipping cost have become more expensive with the rise of the
dollar in a 40% of the local currency here, so I need to take action now
and I’ll only continue to work with the materials that I have in
reserve. For that reason I need to stop some projects and some orders
for now and only I’ll focused in the current ones (1Inuto 45cm, 1 Inuto
32cm, 2 Nyarlathotep 55cm and 4 Cutehulhu) because are projects that are
the first in the order list and I have started them some months ago.
That’s is a priority for me an for my customers.
Also I need to change my business model and reduce to a large degree
the edition size of all the statues and make the new statues and new
orders under the “Make to order” model business.
For people that
are worried about the complete statue line, that no will be cancelled,
it continues and I’m assigning some hours per day to finish the sculpt
for the new statues, I’m finishing it bit by bit, so don’t worry about
That’s my report and thank you for your understanding, I hope that current situation ends as soon possible.
