Just offering some pics of a new sculpt recently started. I only realy started to work on it this weekend after seeing Kiwimike's rework of a Han solo.
The kit is a Horizon model, which looked like this.
So a while back I took the extra hand that comes with the Indiana Jones vinyl kit and built the gun to go in it. The original is just crap.
I then tried to sculpt a new head, as this one looks like it was shrunk by some head hunting tribe. My first attempts were not to my liking, so I put the model away.
However when I resculpted my Indian Jones head, (another not so flatering vinyl head) I had covered the face in clay while filling it with plaster, so as to keep its shape, while I was resculpting it.
The byproduct was a clay casting of the original head. The Indi sculpt turned out to my liking, soooo, I shuved some more clay into the casting and started a Rick Deckard.
Here is were I am at.
He still only has half a head, LOL.
Just for fun, here is the Indi head on Deckard. (I was trying to go for an older version of this for the blade runner ford)
But If I screw this sculpt up, I may just try and cast the Indi one now that its finished. I dont know! what do you think?
One last shot, with an extra Joker head I had which I have been conveerting to a "Shinning" jack Nicholson. Would have been a strange movie with him in the lead!
Anyway. some direction on were to go with the Deckard sculpt, I have come to a stand still.
