UPDATE Oct. 26, 2011: Although I am no longer seeking artists for the development of this project, I encourage you to take a look at the unveiling taking place from October 28-December 2. The final pieces are digital works, rather than physical models. If you have an interest in helping to bringing the virtual into reality, please drop me a line. Thanks to all those who have sent me e-mails. I really appreciate your eagerness and interest!
I have a slightly unusual request of my readers. I have a project in mind, but I need the help of someone who is good at sculpting or modeling human figures, either in clay/plastic or CGI. If you or someone you know has these skills and is interested in helping me out, please contact me. If you have samples of previous work, please include it in your e-mail. Please pass this along and thank you for your help!
Update: I've received several inquiries from people interested in helping out. So, I thought I'd share a little bit more info here, in case anyone else is interested in lending a hand. The figures I'm looking to have created are action figure style, similar to those historic action figures of Edgar Allan Poe, Blackbeard, etc. Similar scale, each with a few props. The figures do not need to be posable, as I will just be posting pictures of the figures (though if you can create a posable one, even better!) here, with full artist attributions. I will not be able to pay the artists, so this is something that is more for fun and a chance to get your name and work out there.
Please, only serious inquiries. If you are interested and have the skills to create something like I've described, please feel free to contact me at the link above for more information.
