Abaddon the soul collector by mangakasan Abaddon the soul collector by mangakasan
And here he is after 2 months of hard work XD
Abaddon the beast of the abyss, he slays sinners with his enormous sword and collects their souls in his flask.
His body has absorbed multiple malicious spirits that caused his left side to deform in a twisted state were eyes and slimy vanes popped out. his once beautiful wing was effected by this and lost all its feathers and became rather organic.
Abaddon is a One of a kind and will stay in my personal collection :)

Sculpted entirely from scratch over an armature wire bulked with aluminum foil, he's about 11 cm/4.3 inch tall and +-14 cm/5.5 wide, the sword is 19 cm/7.4 tall

Materials:

*Clays: super sculpey/sculpey firm and milliput.
*I used clear resin and acrylic paint for the eyes. the eyes follow in each direction.
* The necklace i made of iron wire and a old but pretty marble i dug up XD
*Painted both sword and wolf with acrylic paints and dusted with pastels and pearl ex.
I tried to paint him more like an husky then an actual wolf but it became a mix of the two XD
*finished with multiple layers of matte varnish (for each pastel layer a varnish layer was required) and put 3d crystal lacquer on the shiny parts (eyes,mouth vanes etc)

Sword and necklace are removable .
I probably will start doing sculpting commissions somewhere this year (probably around june/july) so if interested keep an eye out on my journals :)

I absolutely love Abaddon, you have outdone yourself, really. He is the most realistic and frightening and awesome clay sculpture I've ever seen! Simply amazing. Are the toenails made out of clay also, or is that something else? And the resin eyes... did you just paint them with acrylics in the back, or what? I am inspired, I want to do that...

One more question. I have recently gotten into sculpting and the sealer that I use is Mod Podge matte finish. Unfortunately it still shines a bit too glossy for my taste... what type of matte varnish do you use? I love how the textures came out :love:

:iconmangakasan:
mangakasan Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i use acrylic picture varnish matt, but i guess any matt varnish should do the trick, tho i do suggest to take a varnish that wont yellow over time and preferable in a spray can (they usually cost a bit more but it's quality is great as some cheap varnish tend to yellow overtime)

this is just so simply beautiful and bad ass i cant stand it XD would you mind if i did some pixel art of Abaddon? (fun fact: I was surprised to see his name, as i know it is the word for destruction in Hebrew (or some biblical language) and it is synonymous with Satan. i use the name Abaddon in chat rooms a large amount of the time, i didn't expect to see it here :D)

i really love how you used the chain to make a necklace, i always like it when artist add stuff like that to their sculptures, i myself have been trying to incorporate something along those lines in my sculptures as well... but haven't :P

i really like this, well done!

This is amazing! Loooove the detail! This makes me want to sculpt again xD
Read the comments, though, and I'm surprised by the animosity towards the concept. A lot of people have drawn wolves with swords, sure, but this is original in its own way. I mean, look at that epic mutated side and wing x3.
