    Hi Guys
    Thought I'd post a few pictures of an Iron Man bust iv'e just finished.
    It's sculpted with Supersculpey and is about 26cm high.

    Very cool, really like it. You got some pretty nice details in for such a small scale.

    Thanks guys!!

    I tried to get it as smooth as possible before i baked it, but still had to do extensive sanding to get it really smooth.

    Cheers

    Wow...great work. You really achieved incredible mechanical detail in this sculpt. You said you used Supersculpy? Is it a mix of sculpys or just straight stuff? What firmness is the sculpy?

    Thanks again guys!

    It's just the regular pink super sculpey, but I added some black and white fimo. Its stops it being slightly translucent so is easier to see the surface detail. After I baked it I gave it a spray of primer and sanded it down.

    It's quite firm stuff, but I haven't used any other sculpey to compare it to.

    I love the slightly exaturated head/body/waist proportions.
    They give this bust a much more heroic look compared to whats possible with a suit designed around a person having to be wearable.

    Its subtle, but looks amazing..

    the only thing that gets me from looking at it is that the head looks a bit small in relation to the rest of it, but apart from that an outstanding job

    Thanks again guys! I think he may appear slightly more exagerarted in proportion because of the camera distortion. Also his hips haven't been included in the sculpt so it makes the torso appear slimmer than it really is.

    The Guy who commissioned the piece is molding and casting it, so hopefully it should be available soon! Hope so, Iím looking forward to painting up one myself!! LOL!!

    The armature is made of two metal squared tubes bolted together, then I used miliput on the join to secure it properly. The ends run from top to bottom and to each shoulder. I did this so I could then detach and re-attach the arms and head for molding and to be able to detail the hard to reach parts.
    I then bulked it up with kitchen foil, although in hindsight I could have used a lot more of the foil and less sculpey!


    Cheers
