Sculpting a Cauldron of Dark Knights with Jonathan Matthews
I am a huge collector and admirer of action figures and statues of characters I love – one of my most beloved pieces is the DC Direct Mike Migola Batman Black and White statue released in 2006.
On this episode I chat to Jonathan Matthews who sculpted that statue, from just a front view image of Batman by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and turned it into a masterpiece. Jonathan has also sculpted a ton of the best DC Direct action figures and statues over the past 15 years, so I wanted to learn more on his process and how he works to turn our favorite comic book superheroes and supervillains into three-dimensional plastic and resin works of art.
Find out how the worlds of Batman, Superman and Harley Quinn collide with the worlds of wax, silicone and Zbrush with Sculptor Supreme Jonathan Matthews inside The Hyper Room.
