Re: New Project....

I have to agree - kind of looks like the start of an Alien head! Anymore details you want to share?

Re: New Project....

right, of course this will gonna be an alien sculpt again. I am planning to do another bronze cast, but this time a little bit more realistic using these curled wire technique. The first series back in 2010/11 was completely sculpted in wax, because I wanted to cast the prototype in bronze directly and was not sure if I would do an silicone mold. This time I definitely will, so I can use other materials than wax too. Anyway most of the sculpt will be wax I guess. this is because I have some experiences wit the material. more than these oil clay though.

here s the dome so far with the white template inside.

the dome have a length of ca 12 cm. so this might become a little smaller figure than the first one.

Re: New Project....

This going to be a really exciting undertaking. Do you have concept sketches of what your final Alien is going to look like, or are you kind of making it up as you go along?

I want do a position similar to the old mpc kit package:

but if the silicone - mold / wax casting process go well, I hope do do other positions out of this master pose. made some good experiences with resculpting a wax cast before bronce cast with my first figure. the standing position is my favorite though, but the crouching alien from the promo pics is also very nice.

but I upgraded an old bronze cast of the first sculpt last weekend. this was the second cast back in 2010:

and here is the same figure after resculpting the dome a little bit and replacing the teeth with stainless steel teeth. not perfect but much better than before...

can only make minor progress these days. hope to have more time when fall is coming. anyway the shape of the head comes closer I think. not 100% accurate because of the number of rips on the big tube... on the other hand I am satisfied of how the shape of the lower tube is working.
