    finally got the first casting out today of gary oldman as zorg from the fifth element, i'm very pleased with the results as this is the first "human" i've done.
    some might say hes a "monster" but i'm rather fond of the old comb-over. i must admit i had the aid of a lifecast to work from.

    here go the usuall crappy pics:

    Very nice Zorg there, er zorg.

    It might be the silicon, but he looks more melancholy than malevolant.

    Great sculpt. Love the character. Not sure who came up with the idea for the south Alabama accent, but it added a lot.

    Keep up the good work.

    I know who it is. It's that one guy from that scene with the other people. I think there's some talking in it.
    But I could be mistaken. :D

    Looks awesome. Why did you sculpt in the plastic head piece? Wouldn't it be better to just add a vacuformed piece after it has been painted?

    Looks really good Chris. Like the way you've adapted the lifecasting and enhanced the detailing etc. Can you give a blow by blow account of how you made it... I have a Tom Cruse lifecast that I was considering for use in some miniature form but you never know a full sized head might be on the cards sometime.

    Cyb.


    PS... Any chance of seeing all your creations on display together? (i.e. a prop room) Bet its an awesome site.

    Terrific sculpt. :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup

    I can hardly wait to see the painted version. Will you do a bit of fabric costume around the collar, too? There have been a few finished busts recently with that touch, and I've been very impressed with the effect.

    if i could find a similar fabric i would love to give it a try, i had concidered sculpting the collar on but there were too many negative points going that route.

    i dont even know what kind of fabric that is? anyone know?
