A close encounter....


Sr Member

Here is a bust I just finished. It is the alien character from the movie encounters of the third kind created by Rambaldi.

It is lifesize and silicone filled with soft foam.The eyes are epoxy with painted eyes on them. Changed a few things to five it a little bit more life, bit tried to keep the look of the alien. The base is based on the Devil's Tower that is seen in the same movie.

Here are some pictures:






Let me know what you think!
