Liger vs the World

After doing a bit of analysis, I have decided to move further with King Liger. My hopes and aspirations of making more of myself as a hopeful independent toy maker lies with him. More I work on him, the more I want this to work. I have so many other characters to make after him, but he must come first. Sorry if this comes off as sort of over dramatic, I just want this to happen. 
Anyway, here's how he looks so far. His sculpt is basically finished. The task that comes next, however, is the part that I find the most daunting, the wax blank step. I need to make two 2-part RVT molds and I know that This casteline sculpt will not play well with the plasticine that it will be laid in. I've been burned before and lost some works that cannot be salvaged. 
 I know not many people read this, but if anyone is out there who knows what can be done, PLEASE help me with this step. Anyone. Thank you.

A bit of Mega-drive fun while we wait

As you recall in one of the previous posts, I made some sprite animations of the potential characters for the King Liger series. While there is no guarantee that they will be made, I thought it would be cool to try a different approach to them in pixel art. I really enjoyed the semi-real look of early Sega Genesis/Megadrive games, so I thought I would give it a go with M.Stangdaalyn. Here are a few that I have done. Enjoy!

Update on King Liger: Currently he is safe in Japan, sitting cue to be made. More on that as it develops. In the mean time, please enjoy this kick line:

I have cavities!

The electro-forming step of the mold is complete! Here are the copper cavities after the wax was melted out. The steel plate is nearing its completion as well. To be continued...
