Judge Dredd (work in progress)

I'm a MASSIVE fan of Judge Dredd & as such have decided to sculpt him in action arresting two perps. This has been something of a labour of love for me. I started it in 2008 as what was meant to be a quick sketch sculpt of a random 18 inch figure just to see how quickly I could do it! Then I decided to make that figure into Judge Dredd......then I decided to add another figure..........then I decided to add ANOTHER! As the ambition grew it became something that I would work on from time to time inbetween paid sculpting work. Then I would get side tracked by other projects & then would come back to Dredd, often after long periods, & would find myself resculpting what I had previously done as I felt it was now inferior due to being several months, then eventually years old! I finally finished all the sculpting early this year (2013) & got it all moulded & cast out in resin.......that was sold to a guy in Spain! I still don't have one for myself!! As soon as I get some downtime then I will cast one out for me & paint it up. In the meantime you can see what the finished model looks like without paint from this test fitting I did to make sure it all fit together before I sent it to Spain!
 Trouble is I STILL see loads of stuff I want to change! Oh well..........









And here you can see the original work in progress..........................



Some close up shots. The badge was created digitally & printed out on a 3d printer.


These early photos show the rough composition of how the finished thing will look.



The first Perp is pretty much finished & will be moulded in the near future. Heres some photos of him as he is at the moment......


The second Perp is still only in the rough blocked out phase. Hopefully i'll get round to working on him soon! In the meantime heres a couple of videos. The first is the resin Judge Dredd & the second was done way back when was still roughing everything out. Enjoy!!

He will be THE LAW!!!........
