Here’s another Robot Master in the same style and size as the Metal Man and the Skull Man I did last year. A lot of times for more human characters I’ll actually have to pose for the stance that they do in the sculpture, so I was doing a lot of “STOP”ing in the shower while I thought of this one. Miraculously, no injuries were incurred during the concept phase of the Flash Man sculpture!

I love this sculpture pretty bad. He took me a hell of a time, and he stands about 13 inches on his base. He’s a monster, and he was sold at MAGFest 9 to Tony La Rosa for 3 dollars, who won grand prize in the Fizz Man raffle. Way to go, good sir!

A commission for my chum, Brett Hensley. Wood Man is the kind of Robot Master you could sit down and have a beer with, but I bet he’s a mean drunk. Imagine him poking you in the chest! I like how I managed his palooka-like scowl on this one, but still kept the original concept art intact. It’s tough to be faithful to the original design but still eke out a bit of myself into it.
