Nope, I'm not gonna rant about G. Dubya but rather show off my latest sculpt in progress as my way of escaping the gloom and doom on the worldnews.
I've only got about 2 hours in so far and am just "blocking" it in getting the muscles and tendons in place for the expression before I put "skin" on it.
I'm using a lifesize skull of a Chakma Baboon as my armature. Resin cast from a museum specimen you hippies, not a real one! I'm also using Monster Makers "hard" SFX clay for the 1st time. I like Super Sculpey but since this is a large piece and I didn't wanna bake it and loose the skull I'm experimenting with this. So far just on getting ready to sculpt the face I've used 2.5 lbs!
It's going to be a screaming Ork/Goblin warrior ala Warhammer fantasy battles or Dark Crystal/Brian Froud (not lord of the rings style orks). I will likely make it a bust so there will be a neck, shoulders and armor as well.
I'm not really convinced with the nose at the moment, I deliberately placed it farther back on the skull than it should have been-to make the mouth appear longer and more vicious/primitive but I'm not sure...
