    Looks pretty great!!!!

    I gotta ask though, why is there a hole in the hairline area?

    The eyes look pretty amazing as well. Can't wait to see how you paint it up!

    Thank you for the kind words, that little hole is because of the curl, it has a small hook to be attached and then pasted to the bust. :cool

    That is just creepy. The accuracy, I mean heck the thing has pores. Most impressive.

    That looks great, bone/muscle structure, facial features, etc. Regarding the pores, were they that big on CR in real life?

    Ah, makes sense :)

    Awesome work man! Can't wait to see it painted up!

    Are you going to cold cast one of em? I think it'd look pretty sweet in a pewter or a bronze style.

    Pores and skin texture are most profound in modeling, because the in the process of making the mold and copy and especially aftert the painting, the texture will look softer. :thumbsup

    Perfect likeness! I like that you sculpted some of the chest and shoulders so a costume could be put on it to finish the display.

    I'm not a fan of sculpted hair and that's not because of a lack in the artist's skill, its just that in IMO the hair never sits/looks right - possibly because the skin is realistic with the hair looking what it is: "sculpted".

    That aside I must congratulate you on what has to be one of the very best sculpts of Reeve I've ever seen. You've truly nailed every aspect of the man of steel and Reeve himself. I'm delighted you might do a deluxe version with real hair because I believe that will make this the best Reeve sculpt there is.

    Highest regards

    MARK

    Hi Mark, yes I plan to make a version with real hair, this first one is a standard version, and a deluxe version is going to have real hair, glass eyes and silicone skin.
    Al so I am working in a full body display.

    Thank you, I think this is the definitive sculpt on Chris Reeve, the only thing that can be better, is just the materials that I will use for a deluxe version with real hair and silicone skyn

    yep. I think it is the definative Reeve sculpt. cept for the hair. and skin texture. I think that this is about as good as it can get with the likeness. It looks really natural, and it all flows nicely. well done.
    some Reeve face poses I have not seen:
    a smile with teeth. that winning grin at the end of the first film.
    x-ray vision stare.
    clark kent faces.
    just some ideas.
