Dark Sword Miniatures is beyond pleased to welcome Mr. Jason Wiebe into the sculpting mix at Dark Sword. He was taught the double-secret probation (Animal House reference -sorry) handshake at Gen Con Indy when we nailed down his first three sculpts for Dark Sword. Jason has done work for all of the big companies, most notably our good pals at Reaper. I wanted to bring in another sculptor that could help Dave Summers expand our Frog line out into some interesting directions with really fun pieces. Jason was my one and only choice for this type of sculpting style as he has an eye for this and fits right in with what Dave has been doing for Dark Sword. As many people know, I like to keep a really tight-knit group at Dark Sword on both the sculpting and painting fronts. This helps keep a line tight. We have Tom Meier and Jeff Grace teaming up on certain aspects of our range and now we have Dave Summers and Jason Wiebe teaming up for other parts of our range. Work in some Gael Goumon sculpts from time to time and we have a rock-solid foundation built from working with some of the finest sculptors in the world.
The idea for Sad Panda was born at Gen Con Indy 2009. Dave from CMON and I were tossing ideas around for something fun and Sad Panda came out of this. He was "supposed" to be modeled off of one of my local friends who was at Gen Con with us as he has many Panda-like features according to Dave at CMON. But as it turned out, we opted to not have him pose naked with a bamboo stick slung over his shoulder for Jason Wiebe. We cut the very talented Jason loose on Sad Panda and the results are too cute for words. This is why we have pictures.
The very talented Miss Marike Reimer did the honors on painting up Sad Panda as she painted up our other two limited edition miniatures that have both sold out. Plus Sad Panda is essentially nekkid, so it was Marike's chance to finally paint up a nekkid Dark Sword male miniature. So you ladies that have emailed me about doing a nekkid male miniature to go along with some of our scantily clad female miniatures have your chance to even the score with Sad Panda. This is why is he sad as he is being exploited for his dead-sexy body and not his charming personality. And no I did not model for Sad Panda.
