Princess of Mars

    Hello all-
    I've been lurking but not posting for awhile, thanks to restoration work on our house and an illness in my family, but I'm finally back at the bench and working on something new.

    Is anyone out there a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs? I heard Paramount's working on a film of his Princess of Mars, and it inspired me to work on a vignette based on a great Frazetta illustration. I hope to get it done for MFCA.

    A few pics will follow, first the inspirational material, then the ongoing sculpt of the 15 foot (in 54mm scale) green Martian. ERB's hero John Carter is defending the honor of the beautiful Dejah Thoris, princess of Helium. Figures are Preiser Adam & Eve that haven't yet been modified

    I'd love some feedback on the work, esp. about what kind of base to put it on!

    I'm glad all is well and you are back to the work bench. ;)

    Your work is of excellent quality and very inspiring.

    Keep up the good work.

    Roc. :)

    really cool piece! Looks like a good start! I would say keep the base and groundwork fairly simple, as they are in the illustration. That will allow these wonderful figures to shine as the central focus. Keep us posted on this one!

    Matt, I have always been a fan of Frazetta. A lot of his ink drawings would make great vignettes. I look forward to seeing it at MFCA. Neat stuff.~Gary

    Hey Matt

    Edgar Rice Burroughs and the Martian series - yes, I have quite a few of the stories (in paperback, from the '50s) and I very much admire Frank Frazetta's interpretations from them (and all his other stuff too)

    This vignette promises to be excellent, and I look forward to watching it develop.

    Thanks for posting it :)

    Best regards
