    Amazing Azmodan sculpture

    Click link for more pics and commentary from its creator:
    http://blog.makezine.com/2012/08/03/...pture-azmodan/

    I began this sculpture two years ago, when I was working for a book publishing company. I had the good fortune to be the Art Director for Blizzard’s book, Diablo III: The Book of Cain.

    Diablo is one of my favorite PC game series, so designing the book and helping Blizzard direct the illustrations of some of my favorite fantasy illustrators (Brom, Iain McCaig, James Gurney, Adrian Smith, John Howe) was a dream come true.
    One of the bosses in Diablo III is the Lord of Sin, Azmodan, a Lesser Evil of the Burning Hells. True to his moniker, he’s a monstrosity in every regard. As soon as I saw the sketches, I just had to sculpt him. He ended up being more challenging than I even expected, as it took me an estimated cumulative 2-3 months to complete him. He has six insect legs, multiple texture types, and his hands and head glow with demonic energy. And if that wasn’t difficult enough, I had to light him up with LEDs.

    I wanted this thing to be large, imposing, and he does not disappoint: the base is two feet across and he is 17″ tall.

    Dude. That sculpture is sizzling! Azmodan has got to be one of the coolest demonic designs to come out of the Diablo series.

    Re: Amazing Azmodan sculpture

    Blizzard just posted a brief interview with the sculpture's creator:
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/6904613

    Q. If someone is looking to begin sculpting, or taking on a project somewhat like this, how do you recommend they begin?

    Jason: Start small. Trying to do a project like this as your first project would be really frustrating. Learn anatomy and basic sculpting skills first, and then work on something like this after you've done a few sculpts.
    There are also a ton of great tutorials at www.stanwinstonschool.com. Gnomon School is great, as are their tutorials. I just read a ton, visited sculpting forums, and don't forget: practice, practice, practice!
