Intro: Dead Space Marker
"The Black Marker is an alien artifact found on Earth in 2214. It radiates a signal that—depending on your intelligence—either induces dementia or imprints blueprints into your brain for reproducing more Markers." (http://deadspace3devteamedition.com/)
I've only recently come into the series of Dead Space and I've enjoyed it's lore quite a bit. I loved the way the markers were presented throughout the games so I wanted to have one for myself. Sadly I was unable to find one to purchase for myself, so I decided to make one. The model I made is closer to the desktop statues you can see in the game because the few pictures of the collector's edition marker I could find, looked a bit too chunky and awkward. Each model is 7 in tall and resin slush cast, then filled with plaster to give them enough weight to not feel like cheap toys. I gave each it's own simple paint job then clear coated them with a matte finish. The black one was for me because it had more than a few casting bubbles and cracks, while the red marker is for a friend. I would love to know what people think and constructive criticism is always welcome.
