I’m out at MAKE HQ in Sebastopol (from Arlington, VA) this week with much of the MAKE team week as we do our 2012 planning. I’ve been having fun geeking out with Jason Babler, our new senior art director, over garage figure modeling.

He just showed me this amazing sculpt and resin cast he did of the Diablo III Unburied character. My first reaction was: “Why didn’t you submit this during Hobby Month!?” (Hemming, hawing ensued) Ah, our humble, talented staff. Check out Jason’s newly minted Mantle Studios sculpting blog. And see the link below to the excellent PDF tutorial for creating skin textures using the wax sculpting method he used.
