    Ive been looking at the new Avengers movie coming out soon and i decided that i want Captain Americas cowl/helet. [​IMG] heres a good pic just in case we were not all on the same page... this is not TFA cowl. so lets get started. [​IMG] its a nice profile shot of what Ive started. as you can see there isnt detail and its laid on thick...dont worry the detailing will come later.[​IMG] not much done yet, just laying down the basics. im open to advice or any kind of criticism, but more advice please. So im going to make a mold and cast this puppy when its done and hopefully have it complete before the movie comes out. sorry its been a while since i posted progress.. darn you work. it took me while to cut the ear pieces out of balsa wood. [​IMG] so after i cut the wood i hot glued a couple of pieces on and then sculped clay to give it angles and demension.[​IMG] and i added solder around the edge to give it some flare. i need to vacuum form the ear pieces.

    so i couldnt get it as smooth as i wouldve liked so i made a hard copy and sanded it and filled in low spots.[​IMG][​IMG]
    so its not too bad, but it still needs work. i also poured a rubber cast just to see how it fit[​IMG][​IMG]
    lets keep in mind that was for funsies and theres still work that needs to be done. so when i get it to where its suppose to be im going to do a clay pour and add the wings and the A and the rest of the detail.

    I suspect for long time that how you can make cap helmet. Then it was clearly when I saw the detail section technique from last pics. Awesome >_<d
