    Hi Everyone.

    I wanted to show off my latest project... a 1:1 'Nomak' Reaper Torso. This is still super rough here... I'm going to ad a full right arm reaching out and when finished I want to try a transparent resin on this one. The teeth are going to be done in full dental acrylic and the eyes are being custom made to match Nomak's eyes to a 'T' :D
    I also want to cut the bottom at a 45 degree and put this on my wall in my studio... perfect project to save on shelf space :)

    I'll post progress as I get further... I have a lot of commission projects going right now, so this one will take some time.

    With every new sculpt you keep getting better and better Howard. This has got to be your best to date and it looks like its going to be h-u-g-e. I love the pose and the way you positioned his head.

    And your doing a full arm? This is going to be great. :)

    Just for the record 'propsculptor' I am making a 'movie' version... not the 'concept' version that was modeled after Steve Johnson's likeness for a trade show and was displyed in his shop for about two years... :)

    Yes I know that, I've worked for Steve Johnson.

    I'll remove the pics as you requested.

    I wasn't hijacking your thread, just trying to help. Never mind...

    By the way, I really don't appreciate your previous post that you edited, calling me an Idiot.

    I was trying to offer you some help, not offend you or make you look foolish.
    You really need to work on not getting offended so easily when people are offering help.

    ambitious project, H. Looks pretty wicked already. Such an intense design... your sculpt really captures the "pop" so far.

    My god, you are so talented...

    You could make a fortune working for propcompanies, or do you already do so?

    Looks great so far mate, as far as posting referance pics on threads, i would think it would be helpfull, if not least to see what other versions of the original sculpt are out there, for comparisons sake, i have posted referance pic's on other peoples threads before now, not too hijack the thread, just to be helpfull, i am posting this not to stir up trouble, just to give a point of veiw.

    Anyhow the sculpt is really looking ace so far, can't wait to see it done in the translucent resin.

    Not when the pictures posted are of a completely different piece that I want nothing to do with ;) Besides, if I wanted poster sized photos of a 'concept' version reaper that I'm NOT even working on I would of asked... I have plenty of reference of the Nomak movie version Reaper.

    Thanks guys for the compliments.

    Something your not getting here... when people do not even comment on others work and just show off other stuff off saying 'use the real deal' it's RUDE. I don't care how in the world you slice it Propsculptor, it's not cool and you know it... if maybe you had said something that was directed to a positive constructive point of view, well then I would of been cool.... besides, I EDITED MY POST...

    Steve, you'll need a lot of paint too... it's huge. I'm going to take a picture with it when I'm done to give everyone a better idea of the size :D

    Aaaaaaaaaaahhhh Creepy... :eek

    Seriously, this is going to be a biiiiiig baaaaaaaaaad * :D

    I get nightmares when thinking of painting him :lol

    Awesome detail work.

    Would it be possible to do a standing display with adding legs from a mannequin? The pose is not my thing, but I'll have to get it anyway :p

    Awesome. I love this. "this is super rough"

    My idea of super rough is the clay still in the bags. Your idea of super rough is an almost finished master piece. *tips hat*

    Thanks again everyone.

    Tom, this can be added to a mannequin I'm sure... sorry the pose isn't doing it for you? When it's finsihed and I post final shots of the angles I had in mind you'll see what I meant with this idea ;)
