NECA Captain America by TrevorGrove NECA Captain America by TrevorGrove
Another fun project to be a very small part of. I just noticed it's coming out soon and I forgot to share anything from it. I was asked to come in on the face and sculpting a mask-less portrait of Steve for the figure (That awesome, detailed mask was sculpted by NECA's team, not me. I'm not sure who, otherwise I'd give credit).

This was based on Cap from "Civil War". I found Evans to be a really difficult guy to sculpt well, but....I suppose they all are. You just never know what you're in for! That's the excitement... and dread. :)

You can see the finished toy here: news.toyark.com/2018/03/14/pac…

Amazing work! Is the helmet hand made or is it a 3d print?

Thank you! The helmet was made by NECA, and I think they made it by hand....seriously fantastic work....It's so hard to do things like that by hand.

oh man you always make such incredible detail! How you made the fabric detail on the mask so perfect and uniform is just crazy good! if you ever make a sculpting tutorial book I would totally buy a copy.

Haha. I tried to point out that the mask was sculpted by another artist (I'm not sure who, but they DID do an incredible job. Just stunning). That was a big reason I was hesitant to share this project, because I hate to think of the other artist thinking I'm taking credit for their work. Thanks very much, though! I do need to invest time in doing some kind of tutorials or videos, because I've been asked quite a bit.

oh sorry! I must have missed that part. ^_^;; I kind of jump around a lot when I read when I'm tired. 
Well your faces are absolutely remarkable! :D They look so perfectly like the people you base them off of. I especially like the way you do hair and fur. I would especially love it if you made a tutorial on that :D

Oh, no worries at all! I just hate to think of any artist seeing their work here and thinking I took credit for it. This kind of work is such a collaborative effort, it can be hard to articulate who did what! I just always like everyone to get their proper credit.
Thanks again! I will try to do some kind of tutorial eventually. A specific think about hair and fur and things like that would be cool. To be honest, I'm not sure how I do things, so it's kind of weird to try to be self-aware while working.

yeah I can understand.  You get so used to making stuff that you don't have to pay attention anymore. Like trying to tell someone how to drive on snow and icy roads lol. You know how to do it from experience but its hard to put into words to tell someone who's new to it.

You nailed it. That's the best way to put it. I'm too lazy with setting up a camera to do a time-lapse, but that would probably be the best way to show how I do some things.

yeah plus it's tricky to stay in the camera area with sculpting. I tried it using a camera while sculpting before and then I realized how often I'll get a sculpture up close to my face while I'm working lol

Yeah, that was what I feared would happen! I didn't know how to get a close enough in-focus shot while working naturally.
