Man that is epic!
Absolutely fantastic work.
I dont know where you are located, but the london film museum has a Harryhausen exhibit on with most of the original pieces including the armature of the cyclops. I went there yesterday and they were quite strict on photos in the Harryhausen part, but I managed to get a few shots of some of the more famous pieces. Well worth the ticket price.
Cant wait to see this all finished up.
It's always so sad to see the original sculpt get destroyed during demolding.
Did you not bake it due to the fact that you were using hard plaster for your mold material and had to worry about undercuts?
Also, any reason you use the regular pink Super Sculpey over Super Sculpey Firm or perhaps a Chavant clay?
I've always found the translucent nature of the pink stuff messes with my eyes when working on small details. You obviously do not have this problem.
Again awesome work. Masterful stuff!
