From the publisher:
The art of action figures has exploded in recent times, as the simplistic, inelegant pieces of yesterday's plastic have transformed into complex, dynamic pieces of articulate sculpture, reaching levels of artistic expression unthinkable just a few years ago. Steve Kiwus of Eightball Studios, one of the most in-demand toy sculptors of the era, has now brought together his considerable body of eye-popping work into a collection like none other. Babes, Beasts, and Brawn: Sculpture of the Fantastic is a definitive look into the creation of these powerhouse playthings, with hundreds of stunning color photographs and fascinating insights into Kiwus' creative process.
Included is an in-depth how-to section, where Kiwus chronicles his process step-by-step to aid aspiring professionals!
