Bald Padme headsculpt by TrevorGrove Bald Padme headsculpt by TrevorGrove
Here's an older sculpt I just came across that I haven't shared. This was done in 2006 in the first few months I was starting with Sideshow.

She was sculpted bald (Evey? :))and with tucked in ears. This was because of the outfit planed for the figure (Illum mission from the Clone Wars cartoon) would wrap around her head.

here's a link to a rotation that Sideshow put up long ago too.

Excellent work on her likeness, and that does look great for her as Evey Hammond. I'm impressed with the details on the lips.

Oh you're better off not making this small stuff. :D It's painstaking and sometimes it feels a little ridiculous to work so hard on stuff that's so tiny. ha!

keep up the great work!

I can't wait to see what you make! I'm REALLY excited to see you do more bronze stuff. That's some of my favorite sculpture. I hope I can play around with it someday.

later!

Sculpture's in the mail, just let me know when you can get it into molten metal.HAha! Yeah, I'm sure you have plenty of free time for that!

I would love to get a free month where I could sculpt up a nice bust and take it to a foundry. I've got to get better and faster so that I can do something like that. Looks fun

Absolutely amazing piece. Is it because its wax that the details are so sharp and realistic or can this be done in other materials on that scale? And what is the difficulty level for polymer clay vs Wax?
Reply
:icontrevorgrove:
TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you!
I really think wax is best for getting sharp detail at this size. I've heard that Hot Toys does all of their portraits in polymer, though...that could just be a rumor, but If it's true...it's PROOF that wax isn't always best. haha!

As for difficulty...I guess most people find wax more time consuming at first. it SEEMS slower, but in actuality, the time it saves you in finishing (sanding and detailing) makes up for the slower start. (blocking stuff in with wax is slow sometimes)You can't beat being able to hold the sculpt in your hand and rotate it around in the light to see all the problems...

with the actual 'carving' and 'sculpting' part, I don't think it's any tougher...it's a bit different, but if you're patient and you take some time to play around, I bet you'd like it!

I am in awe of the accuracy you're able to apply to your pieces, even without hair it's definitely recognizable as Padme. Outstanding work!

Trev excellent work as always my friend! :clap:

Definitely try to do a 1:1 sculpt because I think you will really find that scale a great experience. I have a wax formula if you want it as well... or you could use silicone.

In any case give it a shot!

Claudio! Thanks man!

I'm crawling out of my skin wanting to sculpt something larger! I just got a nice big pressure pot for molding and casting...I'm dying to make some stuff for myself! :) If only time will allow...I might have to just work a little harder to free up some.

So you have your own wax formula for casting 1:1 work? sounds awesome!!
thanks for the encouragement!

How is it that you never ended up working for Madame Tussaud's? I used to aspire to work for them about 20 years ago when they only had locations in London and Amsterdam. Ever since they popped up all over, the quality of the figures has dropped. They could use you, for sure!

TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
Wow, that's high praise, thank you very much. I have thought about it, though their sculptors are MILES above what I do. Truly spectacular. I'd need to actually try sculpting something in 1:1 scale before I get dreams that big. ;) hahah! All of these tiny statue/toy sculpts won't cut it.

I have noticed a bit of decline in the quality of the finished figures. I imagine it's tough to wrangle a group of artists together to suffer all the rigors of making an accurate sculpt of someone. the pressure has GOT to be tough mentally and physically. Even if it's a high paying job, it's got to be rough.

thanks again!

Back when I looked into working for MT, jobs only opened up if someone left/retired or died. Then they accepted applications from all over the globe. The portfolio required was very strict. And then they selected a handful of artists to go to London and do a test figure. Finally after that, they chose the new sculptor. I figured my chances were so slim, it remained a dream...which ultimately was fine, since I ended up changing majors in college from sculpting to museum studies. (Thought I'd have an easier time finding a job, but no.)

I think that the work you do, without the model in front of you for measurements, etc., is so extraordinary, you could totally make a wonderful 1:1 scale figure...I know it.

Keep the photos coming, they're very inspiring!

Damn! That sounds pretty tedious. :) I wouldn't have imagined it would be easy, though. I have to say, while I think it would be a huge honor, I don't know if I would be up for the rigors of it all. I've really been wanting to experiment with more imaginative sculpting...realistic work, but something that allows me to play around in my imagination...that'd be a joy!

Again, I'm really honored that you would think I could ever have what it takes! If I enjoy making a 1:1 likeness bust, I might have to give it more serious thought. :)

Take care!
