Jason Spyda Adams is a sculptor trained in New York city, at the prestigious
School of Visual Arts, New York's premiere art college, Where he graduated
with 4 portfolios, 3-D design, Illustration, Air brush, and fine Art.
Despite his art training, Spyda is self taught in sculpting, having
never found classes anywhere that offered what he wanted to learn. You
may have seen his work in various toys over the years. In recent years,
he's made a push to have his work seen more as art than product. Spyda
has been devoting his time to designing and sculpting his own original
works, and on occasion, working on a design or two of his father's,
Beginning with resin kits, Spyda has put out his own line, including
Ribald the Black Guard, Catrina the Sacrifice, and Miko Robot Killer.
Each original in design and concept. In addition to these, Spyda took
on the near impossible task of accurately recreating in 3-D the design
and style of Neal Adams's Frankenstein from the Neal Adams "Monsters"
graphic novel, and "Next..." the Barbarian, also a Neal Adams
design and Spyda's all time favorite illustration. All were extremely
well received by the kit building fans as well as fantasy Collectors.
Recently, Spyda Spyda has been writing illustrated articles on human
anatomical sculpting studies for his new friends at Kitbuilder's magazine.
After sketching numerous designs, Spyda came up with a major project
worthy of having it done as a finished paint up. Simple, yet complex,
this sculpture that he calls "Tournament" shows off his skills
and his sculpting philosophy. Spyda feels strongly that a sculpture
should be interesting to view from all angles, or else it may as well
be done as a flat illustration viewed from one angle. The design of
Tournament fit this multi-angle concept perfectly.
Pausing atop a cliff, the woman leans forward on her beast and the beast
tips ever so slightly forward, causing the viewer to feel the tension
and weight for the figures to continue forward over the cliff, to the
next town and the next tournament. Her arm forward points where she
wants her beast to go, the wind pushes her hair forward.
The angles of the figure cause the viewer to feel the tendons of the
beast's ankles as if it were about to take off. Wether you look at this
figure from the left side, right side, front, back, three quarter, you
get the same effect. It turned out to be a very exciting piece and we
are proud to make it available to you.
