JAWS Hooper by TrevorGrove JAWS Hooper by TrevorGrove
JAWS heads. These were sculpted years ago, and only for myself because I love the film so much. Hooper dates back to before I started working with Sideshow, in fact.

These were never produced, merely sculpted for my own enjoyment.

Dreyfuss as Hooper was sculpted in Sculpey and the beard and hair were done in Castilene. You might notice it's rougher than some of the other stuff.

Jaws is one of my all-time favourite movies, these sculptures are awesome.
As a matter of fact all of your work is great.

This is great Trev! I need your artistic opinion I you wouldn't mind. I'm Currently in the process of building a 1:8th scale jaws diorama based around the cage attack scene. I've never worked with waxes in such fine detail so i'm going to try sculpting in Super sculpey, a fairly new nedium to me too(I normally sculpt in plastilene).

How would you sculpt the hair as it is represented under water? I kind of think that the hair wouldn't look too dissimilar to your sculpt above, perhaps a little wilder. I think for the purpose of the sculpt, sculpting in too much skin texture would contradict the underwater look. What do you think? Thanks

Absolutely amazing. I don't know if anyone here is familiar with Jesse Thompson's scale ORCA models, but they are the best of the best. You can check his work out, as well as updates on a full scale recreation of the original ORCA here: [link]

If these were scaled accordingly, I'd die a happy man. Throw in Mike's NTT Bruce sculpt and a Jaws fan would be set.

To Trev, amazing work man. So inspiring.

Reminds me of that great line in the film when they see the full size of the shark for the first time and Brody turns to Quint and says "You're gonna need a bigger Richard Dreyfuss!".

The combination works well.

I've always cherished his comment about watching the premiere. He got so involved in the film (and blamed John Williams' score) that, when the shark attacked, he nearly jumped out of his seat screaming, totally forgetting he had played a part in the film.

Yeah, it's really fun to look back at how Dreyfuss felt about the film prior to filming and then after he saw it.

I'll be honest, I've never even considered sculpting Bruce, but man...it would be awesome! He would be incredibly difficult to get right. There were some artist last year that did the most amazing Bruce sculpt I've seen. They offered a very low number of them at a premium, and they even customized how they painted him to the buyer's liking. It was amazing. I wanted one bad, but it was PRICEY.

wow, wish i could get stuff this 'rough' ! **cough** lol! what can you say but another lovely piece. really like this one of all 3. he looks kinda wild like a Biker. the Hair and Beard are real nice.
i'm currently trying to get a handle on the eye area. for something so simple looking, its a toughie. its that lil bit o fat that makes the fold overhang thats bugging me at present. but pieces like this are inspiring to journeymen!

OH yes, eyes are the toughest area, even after you do them for years. The upper lid is rarely easy. The more you do it, the less difficult it becomes. One of the bigger issues with eyes are just getting them spaced correctly and so forth. It's different with every face. I tend to sculpt eyes too small, which isn't really apparent until after they've been painted by other artists.

i'll have to keep at it. i have been using some Math Dividers to try keep things even. but i often make them too large. size creep is a pain too and heads often sneakily gain a millmeter here and there!!

Great sculpt; especially his lips.

How did you get the sculpt of the skin so smooth Trev?
Reply
:icontrevorgrove:
TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! This is such an old piece, it's tough to remember how I did some things. The skin was smoothed out after I baked the sculpt. I think I just standed it smooth and then added the hair.
Thanks again,

Oh yes...Sculpey! If you're aren't familiar with it, it's a polymer clay you can buy at just about any craftstore. Once you're done sculpting you just bake it and then you can sand and grind it further.

I'm amazed at some of the stuff I've seen in Sculpey. Hot Toys, a really spectacular toy company, do all of their highly detailed liknesses in sculpey. it's pretty astonishing.
