Welcome - I hope you enjoy viewing my work. I modify most of my figure kits so that they wind up quite different from the original. (And there is a lot more here than just dinosaurs - so browse on!) I re-discovered the joy of art in mid-life and its been a joy to create and share my vision with others. Art, like all creative gifts, exists to be shared so as to enrich the lives of others.
So this website is my gift to you. If you have an interest in art/sculpting/modeling of all kinds of subjects, I would recommend that you check out the Internet Figure Modeling Clubhouse at
INTERNET CLUBHOUSE and also see
At both sites you will find incredible artists and sculptors, some nationally known. Their work will leave you in awe.
Thank you for stopping by!

The figure depicts Renji with his "released Zanpakuto", or spirit sword.
In the series, upon a Shinigami's releasing his full "Bankai" (spiritual power), his sword is transformed into a "spirit sword" that is an extension of its owners soul.
In Renji's case, this turns his large metal serrated sword into a writhing, gigantic snake-like creature, capable of spitting fire.
Despite its snake-like appearance, the sword is actually called the "Baboon King Zabimaru" - hence the Baboon fur covering Renji's shoulders and the gigantic mane around the sword's skeletal head.
For the customization, I took a Renji 5" Series 1 PVC figure and repositioned the right arm.
Next, I removed the head and replaced it with the head of Renji from the Series 6 PVC figure;
Third, I sculpted the Baboon fur around Renji's shoulders and right arm using Quickplastic putty, and painted it;
Lastly, I took the "Zabimaru" sword from a much smaller 3.5" Renji figure and attached it to this figure.
Renji is 5" tall; the top of the Sword's head is 7" high.
