This week I got a couple of truly exciting emails from Prodos Games as they made serious progress on my Jezebel miniature. After I turned Shane’s amazing art over to them, I waited patiently to hear that they started work on the 3D sculpting. Early last week, I received the first look at her and I was beyond totally impressed!
I could not believe the level of detail they could capture from the art to bring into the sculpt- and this wasn’t even the final version! The more I looked at her, the more I loved her, and literally the only thing I wasn’t sure of was that from the back, it didn’t quite look like she had pants on.
From the front, there was no doubt that she had tight pants on, but from the back…the paint job would have been necessary to tell.
Yes, I know some people (ahem, deaddave) prefer this version of her, but I wanted to KNOW she had clothes on below the waist. So I sent a quick message back to my very talented sculptor, Michal Hartlinski, who promptly sent me back an updated, more fully clothed, spectacular Jezebel.
Every day that I’ve had these pictures, I have noticed more and more detail. Check out the details on her corset (flying monkeys, inspired by my love for the Wizard of OZ and the Wicked Witch of the West)! Or her shoulder pad. Or her knee pads.
Or her wickedly awesome, steampunk arm and hand (which will be explained nicely in her backstory). Or her exquisite broom (all Shane)! You can totally see her amulet and necklace wrap around her and enter her neck. Her face is both beautiful and creepy, with those wide eyes calling for someone to paint them an eerie glow.
She’s a wickedly wonderful, sexy badass and I CANNOT wait to see her in miniature form- which I’m told will be in only a couple of weeks! So, manpug, it won’t be long and I can introduce you your very own Jezebel.
For anyone that has ever kicked around the idea of creating their own miniature, I encourage you to give it a shot! The fellows at Paranoid Miniatures were the masterminds behind this opportunity, as they connected me with their artist for Mythos, Shane Cook (who I can’t say enough about!). Shane is an exceptional artist and was an absolute pleasure to work with.
Michal Hartlinski and Prodos have made the process of bringing artwork to life in a 3D form look easy and amazing and I’d work with them again in a heartbeat.
So for now, we wait. But soon, very soon, I will hold my own 32mm Jezebel miniature in my hand and will proudly share that moment with you!
Keep your eyes posted for the final post on Jezebel’s creation, which will not only have her miniature but her back story as well. Until then let me know in the comments what you think of the work so far that’s gone into Jezebel.
Comment below and tell us what you’d make as your own model!
