Clay Tankman

Author Comments

#4 in the Newgrounds Rumble series is Sgt. John Captain, also known as 'Tankman'. 3 inches tall and comes with his own gun! (Tank sold seperately :P) It may look simple but Tankman was actually very tricky to make, since it was hard to work with black and white together without getting stains or marks on the white parts already too small to fix if something goes wrong. The helmet was also kind of complex to work with, I had to work on it from the inside out (and the I think the head is still a little too big). Being that Tankman only consist of 2 colors I wanted to make it as detailed as I could, such as the patch on the arm and a some helmet details you can't see. I mainly used the official Tankman sculpture in the Newgrounds store for reference.

Sgt. John Captain is owned by JohnnyUtah and Newgrounds.



This is awesome.

Have you tried making a Tank?! A tank would kick ass.

I'm thinking about it, but I'm having trouble getting the colors right...

I tried to make a Tankman styled gun, not a realistic one.


yeeaaaaaaaaaaaaa awsome

Good clay sculpture

Nice job on this art piece and bringing the tankman alive, you seemed to really bring it forward and show much of the detail that cant be showen on the toon form, so the clay character is looking pretty good, i think you could have done something with the backround such as some sorta "CARDBOARD-CUTOUT" like of a city drop like newgrounds has its header, also the gun seemed off, maybe if it was a grey-ish color with a few black detail points, might bringout that it really is a weapon of destruction, and i dont know if it can be done but abit of shine might have been nice on the goggles, now thats alot to be said, dont get me wrong this was a pretty good piece, i think if you had him posed like in an "ACTION-SCENE" it would show off more realisim if you will say, but really for the mostpart this was pretty impressive

The gun could use some detail maybe if it was more of a lighter color like grey, you could have done something with the backround such as some sorta "CARDBOARD-CUTOUT" like of a city drop like newgrounds has its header, and some sorta shine on the goggles wouldnt hurt.

Thank you for your review, I like how you gave me things to improve on (a very rare thing that I see in other reviews). I do agree with you that this one probably needs the most work, especially the gun. There is no background on any of them and they are in no pose on purpose because they are just photos of the models themselves, (though I should start to doing that), And the other thing is Tankman has only 2 colors, white and black, and I couldn't really make a shine if I use pure white, can I? I definitely could if possible though (such as Hank's goggles.)
Despite those problems, thanks for the feedback. :)


i got to are a GREEAAT clay sculpter.
