Julian Khor, a Senior Lead Designer at Ubisoft Singapore, has a series of inspiring videos (99 in all) on sculpting superheroes, action figures, and modeling the human form in general (virtual 3D modeling tuts, too). The above video is part one of a 35-part series on sculpting a Hulk-y “action figure.” The series goes all the way from constructing an armature based off of a full-scale drawing, to building up the character in Sculpey, to finishing. Gorgeous work and the unnarrated time-lapse videos are rather mesmerizing.
