    A little back story :

    Death Sludgie is the return of the burnt to a crisp 1 off that I did for the Super7 Florida show. If you dont remember, here is a pic :

    [​IMG]

    This was sent to me in the mail after the show as hate mail. Someone had an issue with a trade on this board and ended up just burning it and sending it to me.

    At the time I was sculpting just a head, but after this arrived it sparked a thought and steered me in the direction of where the toy should go. What would the sludge demon look like if it came back from the dead, coming back angry and reforming from ash.

    So you will see some pitting on the new monster, that is the coal pitted chard remains.

    The bumps and boils from the Sludgie are now the skulls.

    That is the story behind the new Monster. He is the angry resurrection of the Sludge Demon !

    I hope you guys like, Im super stoked. I know what the changes will look like in vinyl and how the vinyl will bring it to life. I cant wait !

    Doji, his story is pretty simple. If you remember doji is a very old Yokai. He is so old that his only ability is now to break balls. He instigates between the other monsters and sits back and enjoys his chaos.

    Doji is a little ball breaking bastard !

    Re: MVH Death Sludge Demon

    I keep coming back to look at this guy... I can't wait to see some close-ups of his gnarled textures. I love the tiny holes in the ribs- as small as they are, they draw my eye right to the center of the figure. Everything about the sculpt is great; Rich, you are clearly making big advances in your sculpting, becoming a really great synthesist/interpreter of all your influences. Keep it up!

    My favorite part is exploring what paint apps look best.

    I will be sending him and Doji off to Japan in a day or so. Once all is set I will open a pre order for a unpainted blanks. I would like to have you guys vote on some vinyl choices you would like to see. For me so far it's black vinyl, white vinyl with pearl dust and a cornflower blue. Maybe some GID and black marble !

    Please post some suggestions :)

    I'm glad you guys are liking him, there are so many paint possibilities I can't wait. I have been slowly working on this guy for over a year, it feels weird to be finished.

    Holy shit YES.

    Caustic... corroded... chunktastic... amazingness.
    And then you got skulls pustulatin' out of his back, which I'm a complete sucker for...

    AWESOME, man.
    I can't wait.
    As you said, so many paint possibilities. :twisted:

    I'm stoked your liking him so much :)

    Honestly I was thinking not many would like him. It's a very creepy sinister highly detailed sculpt.

    The size on this guy once in vinyl form should be a perfect fit with the mid sized stuff. About 7 inches tall :)

    I think you nailed it on the head; white vinyl with pearl dust and GID/black marble.
