John Brown is a character and creature designer/sculptor for film and television. His credits include Planet of the Apes, X-Files, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Outer Limits, Mars Attacks, and much more. In this kit, you’ll find all of the tools he himself uses to create everything from trolls and super heroes to works of unsurpassed fine art. Products include: six bricks of Chavant NSP Medium Green clay, 1/16 armature, 1/8 armature, brass tubing, 8” calipers, and nine of his hand picked sculpting and modeling tools.
Also included is John Brown’s “Sculpting Comic Book Style” DVD Tutorial, wherein John demonstrates how to sculpt a comic book superhero character. Beginning with a special illustrated montage “ORIGINS”, the sculpted character morphs right off the comic book pages into the clay model where the student learns the origins of the character and the importance of creating a backstory for the superhero. Followed by a concept sketch and a scaled illustration, students will quickly learn the essentials of male anatomy through a comparative study, learning how to extrapolate and overemphasize male anatomy to superhero proportions. Other exciting topics include the creative thought process, costuming and sculpting attitude. Developing good work habits for creating these dynamic characters is unveiled step by step.
