Thanks !

I miss working on larger statues as well. Bottom line is that DC puts out a lot of action figures each month and yes, action figures tend to be more lucrative than statues. They do however give me statues jobs here and there though. I imagine that in the next month or so they will solicate a new statue I recently completed for them.

really great work. DCD is lucky to have you with them Ray. have been a lot of figures that didn't translate well from the pages to the 3d world.

any chance you would sell the original sculpt of despero?

looking forward to seeing your new statue (although i am sure my wallet won't!).

lastly, are you DCD exclusive?

These are just beyond beautiful! The level of detail is absoluetly insane. I would swear that these things were at least twice the size that they are if I didn't already know better.

Hire the most talented people you can, and give them a unique character to sculpt in addition to the big 4.

That Despero ROCKS!
