No replies on a shifflet bros thread? Jesus how hard must it be to get comments around here
Yeah, it's tough to get replies here. Seems like you can go for days before someone posts a reply. The views/reply ratio is extremely uneven. Anyway.... Great work. I like the concept. Do you have any other works?
http://shiflettbrothers.com/ although a lot of the stuff they do is produced for other companies under NDAs, which doesn't get put on their site, but they have a few of their own kits for sale and at least one piece is being offered as a bronze.
The Shifletts are really awesome sculptors, though, and fairly widely known, especially (but not only!) in the comic collectible world. And they're just good guys to boot - they are really generous with their knowledge, even to rank beginners - and have helped me out countless times when I had questions about the nuts and bolts of sculpting.
Noynub looks awesome. Is there a different angle?
I am currently using Sculpey and I thought it's the best material for sculptures. It seems you mostly use paper clay, may I ask why?

And there is no such thing as a "Best" material - use what works well for you. There are a lot of really talented sculptors who work in Wax, and I love the stuff they do, but can't get myself to like wax. So, don't worry about it - if Sculpey works for you, use! It happens to be my main medium, and the Shiflett's as well, I believe, but there's a lot of personal preference when it comes to choosing medium, and sometimes other factors (some toy companies, for example insist on wax masters).
Ooops... I am sorry Jiamarche, I was trying to ask those questions to jarrodshiflett, but mixed up your names, sorry.
I saw some YouTube videos of Angela working, I thought Shiflett Brithers use paper clay too. Sorry I totally misunderstood everything...
Anyway, I still wish to see another angle of Noynub.
Hey, no need to apologize! It's all good, here...
You may have thought the Bros used paper clay, because they've got the YouTube video of the Hulk they did in Paper Clay. They do work in Paper Clay, but my understanding is that most of their maquette work is done in Super Sculpey.
I know the brothers posted some in-progress pictures of Noynub on their board, there might be one from another angle over there, I think Jarrod put the link above.
hey jarrod , I am always amazed at how far you guys are willing to venture away from the norm . a strange and awsome piece.side note , That base ties the piece together nicely, congrats again for a great sculpt ....just wondering what is the story behind the piece?
man congrats on that Kitbuilders cover! Great piece. kudos brother. very nice work.
here are some more shots of Noynub, I'm looking for other angles...
this is Angela's paint job of one
here are some shots of him cut up which at least offers another angle kind of
peace out yall
It carries a painterly sense. What I meant to say is that like any artist who has great experience in his choice of medium; A single brushstroke could carry a great weight. It seems the same for this figure. It carries a loose, yet powerful style. Or I could just say, Wow!
I've been following you and your brother's work for ages now and I just wondered.. (question of the year) how did you guys start out? And was it tough at first? And also.. Congratulations on your success!!
Are you guys going to have this one done up in bronze too? The Old Scratch piece was beautiful in bronze.
Man, I'm glad. As much as I liked the Ol' Scratch piece, I think this one really lends itself to bronze all the more. Awesome stuff man.
God so loved the fat people of the world, he gave them his only begotten donut.
