Hey David,
I enjoyed diving into your work. All the way from the monsters, the sexy bits and everything in between.
Thank you for posting/sharing your creations.

I LOVE your art! It has such a delicate, well balanced quality interspersed with a dry wit that is extremely hard to come by nowadays. Congratulations on being such an exceptional artist!

It's difficult to know how to respond to such high praise except to say thank you for the kind words and I'm glad you enjoy what I do.

First of all: you are great, just great. the work you doo is so special in a way, that I don't think anyone was able to copy it, it also has something mobid to it!
And now a few questions... (sorry)
I am very young, I mean VERY young, and am planning to go study art or something of that kind of stuff but I am really addicted to props and masks and sculpts and stuff, so my question is: is there any way to kind of study sculpturing (in germany :( )?
And second: Right now I try to find an epic Cosplay.. well I've already found: the Silence from Dr.W but I neither have the space nor the money to work with (professional) silicone... is there any way you would suggest to build such a mask? I was thinking about a combination of severeal very light materials and as final layer worbla (which can be reworked on and which can be edited with a Dremel (for ex.))
Anyways I hope you'll do much more sculpts and stuff because they're all GREAT!

Thanks for the kind words…I'm glad you like what I do. :)

I'm not familiar with any sculpting courses in Germany, though I'm sure there must be excellent ones. The thing to do is start looking at courses and colleges as soon as possible….visit them if you can! What you are looking for is somewhere that teaches good, classical sculpting with the emphasis on working from life, anatomy study etc etc. Much modern art education places too much emphasis on 'expression' and you'll find students glueing coffee cups to refrigerators or some other such nonsense and calling it sculpture…avoid places like these as you will learn NOTHING!!
You can also of course learn from home by yourself…like I did…simply buy a bag of clay (its very cheap) and get going! I learnt everything at the start from some books by a wonderful artist called Bruno Lucchessi…they are still available to buy and I cant recommend them enough. Plus there are many, many tutorials online these days.

If it's a career in make up effects you want then you could also consider a shorter pay course. I'm a regular tutor at Gorton Studios in the UK and although I'm kind of biased I have to say the course is simply brilliant. It's expensive but most students tell us its the best money they've ever spent. You might find similar courses closer to home, I know Aris Kolokontes (an awesome sculptor known here on DA as Bolaris) teaches a short course once a year at a college in Germany…though I'm sorry I don't know its name. I also know of courses in Italy and Spain. I'm currently in the long process of relocating from the UK to Portugal and eventually I intend to teach courses in sculpting there. I know none of these are Germany but at least they are a little closer than Britain! :)

FaceBook is a brilliant resource for all things make up and special effects related. Friend me there and join some of the groups devoted to make up effects. Neill Gorton's Make up 911, for instance is a fantastic place to get your questions answered by professionals from all over the world. As a professional group we are a very friendly bunch, eager to help people like you and to pass on our experience….don't be shy!!!

As for your Silence mask, other people I know have made their own versions in latex (like the Halloween masks in shops), it's the easiest and cheapest way I know and all you need is clay, plaster and liquid latex. It's probably easier for you to look at the many tutorials online about the process than for me to describe it in detail here.
I'm not familiar with the material worbla, so I can't really comment on its suitability or not.

Hope this helps a little…if you need more information or advice please feel free to message me
