Man Grasshopper with Spider - Unpainted

 It's been a while since I've posted any pictures of unpainted, un-assembled resin kits, so I'll start things back up with an interesting gem from Japan called Man Grasshopper with Spider. This 1/6 scale resin kit is sculpted by Keisuke Yoneyama, and produced by Hellpainter.

 First let me start off by saying that if you're interested in bizarre, science fiction and horror based original designs, and have not heard of Hellpainter from Japan, then visit their website, like... yesterday:

  Sculptor Keisuke Yoneyama is a fantastic artist as you will clearly see from the pictures posted below. The delicate manner in which he fleshed out this character with it's organic, bone-like forms and chitinous armor flowing throughout is quite impressive, and his style very much reminds me of the work of Master sculptor, Takayuki Takeya. In fact, this piece very much reminds me of a piece released from Fewture Models in 1994 called,  Pusher Hopper: 
  I could ramble on and on about how much I enjoy this piece, but I'll simply let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy.
