Hey guys! I'm really excited to show what I've been working on. It is a Red Hood sculpt from the new 52 series. For those who don't know this is Jason Todd the second Boy Wonder, Robin, who got his head smashed in with a crowbar by the Joker! Great stories, awesome character! This is my first sculpt in many years so I'll be looking for any feedback you guys might have. I've been lurking on the rpf for a long time, way before I even joined and I have to say that I have seen some of the most incredible work anywhere. If this goes well I have some other characters in mind that I want to do after. So here's hoping this one turns out good.
I want to send a big "Thank You" to those who have inspired me to give this a shot with the amazing work I've seen them do. Check them Out!

Now onto a bit about my sculpt. I am using Monster Makers clay and sculpting on top of a CFX lg size armature. I find the clay easy to use and not sticky, so easy to just rub off your fingers. The sculpt itself is only two days of work with maybe 8-10hrs of work total so there is a ton more that has to be done. The eyes, nose, lips and chin still need tons of work. But I have started to get the overall shape. I am a stickler for perfection so please hit me with anything you guys see that needs work or looks off.
Now the pics! Enjoy & be sure to leave me feedback!
