New Harry Potters? They are the Trio Of Mage Students!!


Trio of Mage Students!

Hello Dears,

it has been a very long time since my last post...

Lot of things happened since then... Some nice, or good enough, some bad, others pretty nasty...
But here I am, with new stuff to show!

I still have to write the third article of the Trilogy concerning One Shot, and another about that lovely Dark Elf —Nagausith for those who'd have forgotten!—, plus new other blog entries about several other projects...

For now, it will be about 3 models I've sculpted for Soda Pop between the end of 2010 and 2011.
They are called The Trio Of Mage Students, or it's how the project was named by then.

2 girls and one boy in a half way style between Harry Potter and Japonese school teenagers, with their own spirit and mind...

Valeria is a kind of free mind looking sometimes for trouble, using seduction and manipulation when Veronika is her opposite, very serious and studious... Jakob is looking for respect, honor and glory, wanting to become a powerfull Codifier.

I tried to get exactly those feeling from the 3 beautiful concept arts provided by Soda Pop.
I have to say, when I saw these illustrations, I felt in love!
The difficulty was to get them done for metal production without tons of parts!

During the sculpture of those good looking people :) , an idea came to my mind: they are sorcerers —Codifiers— and I wanted to accentuate their own character and powers with a graphical design... I thought of Akira (I'm a fan) and those energy lightenings associated to the power of the chidren mutants... Remember?
I then decided to sculpt this kind of energy, trying to get a proper design for each of them, not sure it would work out.
... And finally, I was very happy with the result!
Showed them to John from Soda Pop who seemed to like it since the models are now available with these Magical Effects!
Magical Valeria, Jakob and Veronika!

I will write an article about each of these 3 characters, with lot of detailed pics later, but now lets' place to pics of the band!

30mm scale, they are a bit smaller as they are young and the girls would look tiny.

Made in Fimo and Magic Sculp.

 Oh! I saw that Soda Pop named the sculptor of those 3 Jason Hendricks...
Well, it's a (not so important) mistake, I did sculpt them! :)

And here are the great character designs Soda Pop provided me!

Sorry they made that mistake on the credits, I've had that happen a couple of times to me as well. (I wish I could take credit for doing these!)
These turned out great! My girlfriend just got two of these figures this past week and she is looking forward to painting them up. Very smooth sculpts with a lot of character, congratulations!

Great work! Any chance there is something Helldorado or Claustrophobia out of these work in progress?
