well, the time has come...
the project all high schoolers hate, senior projects. i've decided to make the best of it by doing what i love, sculpting. over the next 18 months i will be creating a full close to screen accurate predator 1 suit, all sculpted and cast by myself. i will be learning all i can on the most proffesional quality skills needed and how i can best use them. i will be documenting all i do and research, and i will add it to the lair for feed back. that is if ya'll would be so kind . i hope you enjoy watching my process as much as i will enjoy the suffering and happiness of it all.
thanks to all who read and "help", i start soon. :(

hey all,
im back, but i'm sorry to say i haven't gotten much done, or atleast not on the sculpt, but i have gotten tons done on my research paper on prop construction :) . anyways, i was wondering if any bodies got some seriously good quotes on the actual making of costumes, whether it be from the almighty Stan Winston or someone in his crew or even someone completely different. any and all help is greatly appreciated. i'll be posting the link of my rough draft so far here soon and any updated pics i have of the sculpt

thanks to all,

That is cool. Never had a class where they taught sculpting so my skills are nil. Just a little confused. Said you were doing a P1 sculpt but in one photo there is a Batman sculpt in progress. Good on you looking, good progress, forward to updates. :)

haha, well my class doesnt really teach it, we mentioned it once for a 3 day period when my teacher was out, but that was it haha, and yeah the batman was the reason i hadnt updated the predator in awhile haha, it was something i was doing before i went like super crazy about new ideas of what to do for the pred :D
