The Angel of Death - complete by Bee-chan The Angel of Death - complete by Bee-chan
The raspberry scented Angel of Death, it is finished!

Started off using a G3 My Little Pony as the base, but as you can see, there isn't much of the original pony left. So let's call this a 90% complete resculpt.

For those of you who don't know who the Angel of Death is based off of, I insist you borrow a copy of the movie, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, by Guillermo del Toro.

Sculpted with apoxie sculpt, paint scented with a raspberry fragrance oil, painted with acrylic paints, sealed with a matte varnish, wing eyes sealed with a glossy sealer.

The eyes are liquid bronze leafed fresh water pearls.

This beasty will be making a home with *DeepDarkCreations.


Oh, and yes, Death apparently smells of raspberries. XP

Shite! Scariest pony ever O.o [looks a wee bit like a triceratops though....]

Anyway, just love this! (Especially the wings. Awesome angle and showcase of structure;very realistic)

I didn't immediately get that this was a pony, but the second I saw it I knew it was Hellboy's Angel of Death. Those eyes will haunt me.

I know you based this off the Hellboy character, and a fantastic job at that, but I still feel the veil is too much as it takes away from the sculpture

:iconbee-chan:
Bee-chan Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I wasn't too fond of the veil in the movie either, but hey, had to go for as close to accurate as possible while still being a pony ( sorta ^^; ). I THINK they used a kind of worn cheesecloth in the movie. I THINK. Was going for a similar cloth texture.

First glance: "Is that a pony...?"

Second: "Oh yes. That is a pony. Somehow."

Now that is one fine pony there. Or something.

Well, you DID get to see it in person in one of my favorite stages at least ( I love the look of a blank white slate sculpture! Leaves so much to the imagination. ).

The blank white also sort of reminds me of those Greek and Roman marble sculptures from wayyy back in the day :)

This is awesome and looks equally as good(if not better!) than the toy sculpt of this character we sell at my work! The eyes actually DO look better on this one! Love the added scent as well.
Can you tell me the brand of sculpt you use for this? A couple I've tried have cracked on me and I'm trying to find something better.

Thanks!

I actually use Apoxie Sculpt, from Aves Studios. Not exactly cheap, but it's worth every single penny.

Here's a direct link to it ( had to use TinyURL to shorten the link, forgive me ^^; ): [link]

I buy the 4 pound bucket set, which is $35 USD. Color doesn't matter, but I'll make a HUGE recommendation to you: stay away from their Super White line. MESSSSSSSSSY as heck to work with, and from what other customizers have told me, it can crack.

With the regular Apoxie Sculpt, yeah, you still do have to scrub the heck out of your hands when you're done using it, but it's nothing that a bit of baking soda, or a green kitchen scrubby and good soap and water can't take care of.
