This sculpt is based on the painting by Chet Zar. Chet is an amazing painter and sculptor that has worked on many films and even some Tool music videos. I just discovered his work a few years ago. I've been doing sculpts based on some of my favorite artists lately and actually started with this one. I let it sit for a while before I decided to paint it. When I paint, I never really have an idea of what the end result is going to be. I just mix up some colors and end up with a bunch of happy accidents.
