Overwatch by burgonartworks Overwatch by burgonartworks

    Snipers have always been fascinating to me and with some of my careers, I have had personal interaction and training with them.  I had two Snipers from an “unnamed” organization that allowed me to photograph them and use it for reference material.  I chose a pose that may not be the most likely pose for a sniper to be in, but showed more of a shot that needed to be made in “haste” due to being compromised and shows the danger level with the rear spotter defensive and ready for action.   Created in oil based clay first, followed by a mother mold, and finally a resin copy was poured and painted.

Yes, its a large mold, several of the pieces had to be cast separately.  it's about a 3 hr process to reconstruct a new one after the parts have been cast

Glad you liked it.   I do sell resin casts of these for around $500, which include a base and plaque.   I do requests for custom painting or sculpture bases on the existing one, but I can't change the current one I have to incorporate new additions to it.
