    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...

    You may not have wanted to rant about him but, looking at your sculpture, I can see that he still weighs heavily on your mind [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    That's awsome Swords! You'll have to update the progress on it as you go so we can see it evolve.

    Good job!

    Very good! Great even. I would leave the nose as is. It is a very good crossing, creating the look vicious creature with some intelligence of the humaniod.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Thanks folks! I will post a new pic sometime tonight. I've already scraped off that top lip (which made me feel better about the nose) and tightened the jaw muscles and got the gums in place.

    I like this FX clay! It air "hardens" feeling like like Casteline (toy sculpting wax) but it softens from the heat of your fingers and becomes workable again.

    Very impressive. The best i have ever got from working with clay is a rather pathetic lepord spotted strawberry pot.
    that makes no logic
