    Hey Guys!!

    Here's a fun commission I'm working on... he'll be a 1:1 Raphael Bust! Still rough... but with all the TMNT buzz going around these days couldn't resist a little teaser ;)

    cowabunga indeed mate ;) great work again, love the first film and this has captured Raph perfectly the shape of the mouth/beak area is spot on
    you have any plans to do all 4 ? be a great set to see done :)
    and finally are you going to be doing the cast in silicone with a fibreglass shell moulded seperate or just all resin ? be nice in a translucent green tint as the base

    Thanks guys! This is an especially fun one... getting commissioned to sculpt a non-human portrait is a welcome change of pace!

    I love Henson's work... without a doubt one of the last great practical effects films.

    I hope for this to be the center piece of your collection my friend ;)

    No, this is just a commissioned bust.

    We're doing this one in resin... I'll be doing all the finish work too on this guy ;)

    Love it! He looks great Howard. One of my earliest memories of the cinema this one. Am I right in thinking they are going to be aliens in the reboot? :behave

    This was made clear by the director that the Turtles are not Aliens, its the Ooze that created them that is of alien origin. Kevin Eastman is working very closely with the writer of this movie so it should be amazing when it finally comes out we will have to wait and see :)
