Electric Tiki, RubÃ©n Procopio, Goliath and Me...
I literally just got back to my office after a trip to RubÃ©n Procopio's studio in Burbank. Some of you, I'm sure, met RubÃ©n at this summer's Gathering. RubÃ©n is sculpting Goliath for Electric Tiki, and Tracy Mark Lee of Electric Tiki was at RubÃ©n's studio too.
RubÃ©n's Goliath sculpt -- in its final approval phase before baking, sanding, etc -- just kicks ass!!! Tracy and I had some extremely minor notes, but really, even if it went out exactly as is, I'd be thrilled!
I'm a big fan of the Randy Bowen Goliath that I've currently got sitting on my desk -- which is very much Randy's interpretation of the character. By contrast, what RubÃ©n has done is bring the television show's Goliath to life in 3D. It's totally on-model, and in fact RubÃ©n's workspace is surrounded by actual model sheets of the character from the series. Tracy tells me the sculpt will be available next summer, so if you're a fan of Goliath, Gargoyles or just great sculpts in general, start saving now! I've already reserved my copy!
I have some pictures of RubÃ©n and I with the in-progress sculpt, which I'll figure out how to post or link to or something soon. Stay tuned.
