This is amazing!!! Though Im not surprised based on your past work you've posted.

Are making a series of busts of particular Star Wars characters?

Again, this is phenomenal work, the likeness is spot on.

I don't have a grand plan honestly Kal! I just enjoy sculpting. And er, Star Wars. But since I historically suck at finishing projects, this one I definitely plan to take as far as an actual bust and hopefully a small run of resin kits.

Looks fantastic. Captured in one of his more lighter moments where he let the stern look drop. :)

Wish you would do this in 1:6 scale.
No real reason why I couldn't refactor this to be 1:6 scale TMG. Actually, this project started out as a mod for the Black Series 1:12 Tarkin (see pic here: https://cdna.artstation.com/p/asset...ren-pattenden-moff2-artstation.jpg?1531185101 ). It then turned into an alternative head for the 1:6 scale Hot Toys Tarkin (which gets rave reviews but I personally feel is a little off) but I still haven't finished that yet either (mostly because I'm a little stuck on what to do with the neck socket). It then became a full bust. That I WILL print!

WOW!! This is insane!
I love the subtle shaping of the eye lenses. Most people I've seen model spheres for eyes. But the human eye has a bulge where the lens is. It also helps add to the "focus" of the model, giving a hint of where he's looking without having to add color or "pupils".
Very nice work.
