Just started this today, put in about an hour but I have a lack of ref shots. Was wondering if any one knew if there was any Pub. or post per. shots of this helmet. All my ref photos are screen shots so its difficult to judge the angles of this as every one knows angles are deceiving. lol.

This is just a crude sculpt and the eyes and nose are no where near finished. Im planning on sculpting it in sections, face, dome, brow, and then finish w/ the moe hawk piece. Again any photos you have of this helmet will be greatly appriciated....

Lil update, Started the mandables tonight, need to reshape them but im happy w/ the base of it so far. The shape is all incorrect but im just trying to get a base sculpt down so i can rework the form of it in wax when the time comes.

(The hole in the top of the head is from the stand, i pushed down to hard on the clay and it poked right through the top, but no worries im not planning on using the top of that sculpt for the brow.)

Here's a shot showing what I think must be the same helmet advertised in the link above (display stand looks the same), but from different angles. This one, too, is being sold as a licensed, exact reproduction of the helmet used in the film.

I saw a bunch of these on ebay. Never really wanted to buy one because ive seen some pictures w/ people wearing them and they looked over-sized. Im doing this sculpt specifically to fit my head. Im doing a life casting of my head on tues and then starting the dome hopefully sometime after.

There are those who say that Russell Crowe has always had something of a big head... ;)

A helmet custom-fit to your own head will be awesome. You're off to a good start on the sculpt. I hope some other members will post better reference pictures for you than the ones I came up with. :)

In the alternative ending to Gladiator, Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) pulls a Glock 9mm on Maximus and shoots him in the head. :p

Very nice work BTW... I love all the Gladiator shields 'n' helmets :)

Cheers,
John

The Factory X helmet is not oversized. I have one and it won't fit on my head. It won't even fit on my 12 year old Sons head.

Hmm maybe it wasnt the factory X ones that I saw. Just remember seeing a few auctions w/ the same helmet pictures and they looked huge on the person that was wearing them.
