Gotta have a cemetery on Halloween.

Let the weirdness begin. In the spirit of the holiday that is upon us I will be posting some of my past artwork from various personal and professional projects that celebrate what hides in the shadows. Some scary and some, not so much. This first one is for a cover that I did for book coming out next year called "The Uncertainty".



Here's a panel out of a new title i'm working on.



It's dark in here. This is a rough back cover piece for a Sci-Fi story out in 2014.



I can't take it anymore. Just a rough sketch from my graphic novel that never saw the light of day until now.



Just a little something i'm working on for my next book.

Fortunatley, I had the help of a good editor, Thanks Ed, and a talented musician, thanks Chad to bring this thing together. If it makes you want to know more, you can always pick up a copy of the book.

Drum roll please... The resin kit is finally cast!


After months of work on and off, (click here if you missed the prior posts.) it's here. The following photos are of the resin castings, so you can see how well the detail came out. Obviously, i'll have to trim and patch the seams before I prime and paint it, but all in all, the casting came out perfect thanks to the help of my good friend Eli Livingston.













Check back for the painted update and final box art for the Prisoner of the Mind Cole Maquette "The end is near" limited edition resin kit.

It has finally arrived! I'm just one little head in a sea of people.


There are always a few costumes that make you smile.


...and then the hyper detailed ones.


Look at this packed house in the Artist Alley!


NYCC, is a mecca for very talented artists like Jason Metcalf.




Here's a shot of me and Geof Darrow, one of my personal favorite artists of all time. If you aren't familiar with his work, then you're missing out. He collaborated on a project in the 90's with Frank Miller called Hard boiled. If you want to see some insanely detailed artwork, you'll love this or Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, and of course The Shaolin Cowboy. So far, I've had some great interaction with the release of my Graphic Novel. Can't wait for next year.

This is the wax maquette sculpture of Cole, the main character of Prisoner of the Mind the graphic novel. This sculpture will be cast and produced as a limited edition resin kit available for pre-order during New York Comic Con. I will have all of the packaging done and a painted version of this sculpt available to see in a few weeks. I started this sculpture last year, and If you missed the first part of this sculpt, you can check it out here.


Here's the deal, I finished the first version of this sculpture only to find out on the way to casting, that it's just too large to cast using the facilities that I have at my disposal. The sculpt itself, was a little over 2 1/2 pounds of material. That's a whole lot of sculpture if your going to do a limited edition run which made it cost prohibitive. So, I went back to the drawing board after months of work on the first one and started over with wax.


This new character above is about 2/3 rd the size of my first sculpture which you can see lying on his back behind this new character above. The first sculpture was made using Sculpey. This one is all wax, which in my opinion is much easier and more forgiving to work with. You don't need armature wire, because the wax is hard until you heat it. Nice! You can see the size above, because he's resting on a standard TP roll. Believe me when I say that it sucks to start over, but sometimes it's necessary to learn from your mistakes to make the final product better. After all, this is technically a prototype.


The overall structure of the character is done, and now onto the clean up, and then the finished work will begin over the weekend. Monday or Tuesday next week, the sculpture will be cast and I'll have two copies made from the original. Wednesday, I will paint one of the copies to show you what the possibilities are, and one of the castings will be raw so you can see what it will look like if you decide to buy one to paint yourself.


Here is a shot of his back, the musculature is really coming along, as well as the creases in his trousers.


Here is a close up on his face. I'll have to make him a little more grimacing, and a little less smiling for the final outcome. It's been a long road, but an entertaining one.


I used the same base as the first one. (Click the link and scroll down to see what it looks like) I had to use a process called Hydroshrink to reduce the size of the base. Anyway, if you're interested in picking one of these figures up email me at Art@AllanLinder.com and once I set a price based on materials and time, I'll get back to you. The plan is to do a small run of only about 20 pieces so it will be extremely limited. Pick up a copy of the graphic novel on 10-10-13 next week to find out what all this hype is about. Thanks for keeping up!
