This is 1:6 scale for Sideshow.
I am sorry that the head did not turn out on the production figure. I saw someone customize the head and get it looking really good, but unfortunately that's a lot of work to have to do on your figure.
By the way, when a figure of the new Lara Croft?
I hope someone makes a figure of Lara from the new game. I'm not aware of any, but I'm sure some company must be making one.
Is the character refferred to an actual person? If he's not maybe it's the reason why you find him hard to grasp.
I always thought there was a bit of Nathan Fillion in him and, of course, a touch of Harrison Ford
No 'aha!" moment yet? Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Wow! Your Cumberbatch Sherlock is fantastic! The eyes are SO perfect. I found him to be impossibly difficult to do well. I would like another crack at it in a larger size some day.
I really needed to film some video of working on a face in wax..it's so hard to put into words. I'll try to figure out how to do it....I'm not a tech guy. Just need to set up the tripod and get some video files to time-lapse.
Thanks on Sherlock! He's SO hard...to be so distinctive, I was shocked to find his face so difficult. I'd really love to do larger busts of them to keep unpainted, but with sculpted in pupils.
That sounds great regarding Sculpey firm. I liked that one best when I used to use Sculpey...I could still never do what you do in it, though....I'm very heavy handed...
I cannot wait for BrBa to come back....Wow, it's SO close.
I am very grateful to be busy. I just wish I could figure out how to balance myself a bit better...I work way too much.
Pumpkin....ouch....that's a tough medium....Ray Villafane and Andy Bergholtz are magicians.
But I'm also not gonna forgive myself for not being able to stay sane at high-paying jobs long enough to afford the stuff you're doing for them now.
The biggest disappointment I've found as an artist, I've finally been able to properly articulate: It takes just as much effort to make a failure as it does to make a success...it seems to be arbitrary which ones work and which ones don't. It drives me CRAZY. I hate it when the ones I work hard on still look bad.
Thanks so much! I would love to sculpt Willow again...I love her. I'd actually love to sculpt all of the earliest Buffy characters...I'm very fond of the early years of that show.
I've certainly labored too hard over some paragraphs and scenes that get worse every fix, kinda like, I dunno, trying to glue a new hand onto a fired ceramic figure, only to drip the glue down the side of the figure, get fuchsia lint stuck to it, gouge the leg when you try to scrape it off, and then find you've chipped the ear in the process of setting it down.
If I were an A-hole, I'd say something trite about April showers and how mistakes are just opportunities, but screw that; problems like that just plain suck.
Best of luck!
This... just doesn't look right, and prototype paint work is not helping.
I guess my point being we never know what will work and what will fail...but the effort and dedication rarely changes day to day.
every time I am working on a likeness, I think of you and your work and I repeatedly tell myself, in my brains... "that son of a bitch.. . .hate that guy!" hahaha
I need to get lessons from ya one day man. This kind of skill level isn't normal in a 26 year old.. this skill level is more in a 50+ year old that spent the last 30-40 years of his life refining his skills. You made a fan boy out of me haha. Looking forward to the day you start doing monument stuff and the devil creeps in your brain and brings out very dark, horrific designs.
I spend too much time working.....I really need to get myself a life.
I really appreciate the kind words, man...I think I need to take a vacation, but then I get excited by the opportunities I have to work on cool stuff, and I end up working on WAY too many projects.
Same here man, But if my skill level was at yours. I'd sit on my ass all day long more often!
You do any Prometheus designs by chance?
look forward to seeing the new stuff as it pops up.
I didn't do the Prometheus statues, but I saw an Engineer that looked really cool. I also saw a great Big Chap bust from Sideshow that I thought was pretty wonderful.
wonderful headsculpt Trevor. do you include the volume of the hair when determining the size of a head sculpt? or are they generally Bald first? just wondering...
