Jolie The Raider 2 by TrevorGrove Jolie The Raider 2 by TrevorGrove
This was a headsculpt I did at the beginning of the year. 1:6 scale for a client producing a figure based on Tomb Raider.

I believe the head will be produced as other Jolie characters, too.

Sculpted in wax, as usual. :)

The level of detail and polish on these heads (all the heads in your gallery, really) astounds me. I know wax is fantastic. But what kind of tools make this possible?

I'm helping someone with a 3" tall figure of a knight (he'll be fighting a much larger dragon). When I went in to rebuild the face, the sculpting tools I thought were small turned out to be several times larger than what I needed to get any substantial detail. How do you come by tools that may be a fraction of a millimeter across? Did you have to make your own?

Thank you very much!

I use various tools, mostly just things I've found over time. small loops from Kemper are great, and dental tools are also wonderful.

Some artists do make their own tools. I'm too lazy for it, though. :) I just use whatever I find that works...sometimes you do have to improvise to solve a problem, though.

I've taken to grinding and shaping bits of wire or those needles you find dress shirts stuck with. The toughest thing is shaping the working end without insane magnification. I think I'd be better off having them made for me by an outfit such as SculpTools Studio (www.skulptools.com/main.sc).

I recently got this head and think it is the best Jolie head out there. I am currently doing a Lara Croft bash from the first movie and it works perfectly.

I just want to say that your work is fantastic and sometimes it can become almost demotivating if your forced to cover ground that has been worn to bare earth, but thanks always for sharing your work.

Thank you very much. It is very discouraging to have to tread over ground that has been gone over before. :) Especially when you yourself have done it many many times. :) This has been my professional experience.

thanks!!
