Richard Page from Ume Toys had recently completed his latest custom work of a Chinese Dragon crafted from two Dunny statues. It really caught my eye and seems super creative. So I dug a little deeper and began looking at his store and custom one off figures that he crafts.
The attention to detail Richard puts into his customs also shows in the way he crafts his sculptures. They are cute and bright and totally deserve to be checked out. Hit the jump to to take a look at some of his most recent creations.
Name: Chinese Dragon
Richard Page from Ume Toys recently completed his latest custom work of a Chinese Dragon crafted from two Dunny vinyl statues. It really caught my eye and seems super creative. I love all the little extras he added to the statue, from its beard and third eye, to its goofy mushroom shape on top of its head.
I'm really impressed by the textures on his custom. What drew my eye to it though was the his use of colors, I love how the dragon's dark green eyes pop against his yellow skin, and his big red nose is pretty darn cute.
Name: BEEP!: The HopBot custom
BEEP! is a pretty cool robot. I like his nice rounded look. It looks like his is wearing a trench coat, which is pretty comical to me. He has a little texture work done, but seems less detailed than other pieces I have seen Richard craft. One thing that makes BEEP! cool though is that his head can swivel; overall, he is a cool piece of work.
Name: Levi the Lycan
I won't lie. Levi is my favorite of this bunch. I like his bright coloring, and the texturing Richard put into his fur. Most of all I like his general expression. He looks like he just ate a nice big meal and it shows from the placement of his paws on his belly and the smile on his face to tips of his ears. Maybe I'm just a big fan of good food, and I know that is the case, but this Lycan is pretty sweet to me.
Name: Skulduggery Stranglefoot
Skulduggery is the last of UmeToys Stranglefoots, so Richard decided to dress him up a little into a custom by adding a top hat and a layer of "steampunk" copper paint to him to make him different.
I've grown to like the rounded style of Richard's work, and Skulduggery is a good example of it. At a glance his coloring is extremely simple. If you look a little closer at this top-hat-wearing octopus, though, you'll see that a lot of care was put into making his rounded sculpt. His tentacles are very well done, including the suckers. His face and eyes are almost jovial and is that my imagination or is that a mustache I see on his face?
I appreciate Richard's comical style that he gives his sculptures and I think he is definitely an artist to watch for new and interesting customs. Really, I can't even begin to guess what he will craft next, nor can I wait to see!
Remember, if you liked what you saw, be sure to check out his store!
