    I thought I'd start a new Doctor Who project, and had to do a Silence. Loved these guys since they first appeared and managed to get some time this weekend to get the rough shape down, and he's huge! I know I've got to fix the symmetry, and make the eyes smaller, but any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated, or any reference photos shots that would help.
    Thanks.

    looking really nice, if your up for suggestions, the forhead need to be a bit more baulbous and taller and the cheek bones need to be taken it a little bit

    Thanks so much fettster, the pics are really helpful, especially the first one. You're dead right about the forehead, funny how you don't really notice the obvious until someone points it out. Thanks again for the feedback.

    Wow very cool.. Ever heard of the Hyde Fundraisers? They'd like to speak to you about this creation I'm sure ;)

    Rich I know you work on Doctor Who.... did you have a hand in creating the Silence?

    Taken the cheeks in and added a lot to the head and I think it's made a huge difference. Thanks. Any other comments from any one would be great.
    Yes, love the hyde fundraisers, a very talented group of people.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. I'm still working on finishing off the detailing (i.e. veins) and the collar/tie/lapels. Still need to fix the eyes and make a base.
    A run - the only problem is time. It's taken me this long to get one done and I've already started a couple of other little projects. If I have time over the summer, I may make a couple more. Plus, I don't know how the mould would hold up. It's only my second attempt at a two piece mold and I have to work with a plaster jacket that is slightly cracked now. The silicone is good though.
    Will post some pics when he's finished.
    Thanks

    Lovely job the best I've seen, so what are the eyes made from, I thought the TV ones were just black but I may not be seeing what you have seen??:O)

    Thanks. The eyes are just some fairly inexpensive brown teddy bear eyes from ebay. I have a pic from doctor who magazine where you can see some slight colour of an iris and just make out a pupil. I've attached the best pic of the eyes i have, but you may be right. They do look less bright in person so I think i'll stick with them. Have sorted out the tie and shirt so just have to fix the lapels. Still working on the paint job still.

    Ironic how something called "Silence" is a very TALKed about character.

    By the way, the resemblence is Frightening.
