    Hey Gang,

    HereÂ’s one I just finished up for HowardÂ’s movie room. ;)

    Sculpted by the master of 1/1 LikenessesÂ… Howard Senft of Howard S.Studios

    I went with the classic gray scale look of the television series.

    Custom made base with logo that GLOWS in the dark.

    For more info on how to get one of these outstanding busts contact Dale Blank at - djblank@tds.net

    Thanks.

    Hey Thanks Guys.

    IÂ’m glad you like Grandpa. :)

    He was a fun one to paint-up. Howard did an AWESOME job
    sculpting him.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks Man. ItÂ’s a GREAT feeling to know I inspired someone
    to better themself. :$

    Thanks.

    Ooo, OOoo, OOOoo, I know.

    Smirking Herman.

    In addition to the laughing Herman, Hermie had an "I'm soo clever" smirk that he got, right before "Oh Darn. Darn. Darn. Darn." look.

    ...and yes, that is a great paint job. I am quite partial to the monochromatic scheme, as that is how I remember them.

    Great job to the both of you.

    awesome paintjob. really looks like a B&W clip from the show.


    someone did one in color not so long ago and it was awesome, but since we are not used to seing him in color it seemed "off"


    and howard...

    you are sick.

    i mean WTF?

    im a fan of art, im a musician, ive seen and met alot of talented people in my day...

    ive seen some very impressive head sculpts busts etc.

    but WTF?

    you get it right from every angle... every time.

    just sick.

    one day i will own one of your pieces.

    have you ever done a ANH Luke sculpt???

    id like to have one for my ANH luke hero TK im workin on.

    keep it up, and always bring update pics here.

    WOW.. Those are some mighty kind words there :) Thanks.

    I have to say, it takes all the great finish work by guys like Camper here that bring these pieces to life, I mearly try my best to get the forms correct... and since most of my busts are resin (for now) it takes talent to give them life :D

    I have a few plans for ANH characters but it's the time I can't seem to find these days? maybe down the road...

    Unreal. You two are fantastic. I'm really glad to see you went with the Grey Scale that truly brings him to life. Howard did you ever think of doing a Creature from the Black Lagoon (if you haven't already) That would also look awesome in the Grey Scale.

    I will own one of your Bust Howard I don't know how long it will take but I will and the one I want is Boris Karloff as our dear friend Frankenstien. Someday, someway I will.
    Maybe for my 50th birthday. That's only six years a way.

    Looking at that, and having done some paint work myself, it seems to be the grey scale is EVEN HARDER to get right, and you NAILED it. It looks like a 3-dimensional version ofa color 2-d image that was converted to grey scale.

    WOW Thanks for the great feedback gang.

    HowardÂ’s sculpts are freakÂ’n AMAZING, and I couldnÂ’t ask
    for a better canvas to apply my paint work too. :)

    Thanks Again.
