    Hello everybody, I am pleased to introduce you to my take on that famous caractere that is Hellboy, with this life size bust.

    Let me explain a little why I sculpted the piece, the point was to represent that fantastic caractere in a way that would show a real presence and intensity, with an expression that command respect, in a different style (usual Ron perlman representation),

    here are the last picture I took, showing where i am on the sculpt.

    The bust was sculpted in waterclay, and totaly textured, it is about 20" tal and 12" wide. The missing ponytail will be sculpted after the bust is casted in a resistant material.

    Happy to see the end of that project.

    Nico.

    Great sculpting skills and a great bust!

    But i think this should be posted in the "Replica Props" or the "General Modeling" section IMO.
    Maybe contact the Mods.

    looks awesome, you should mold and cast this in silicone. Looks a little like logan too

    Thats a fantastic representation of the character. Its nice to see a non movie version and the detailing on the back of the bust is very very nice. Well done.

    Agentsmith, thanks a lot :)

    Snaackpac, thanks man, should be finished pretty soon! ;)

    Chris27989, Thank you, should get to the end(im listenning to the doors ;) ) in a short while.

    Thekingaswing, thanks Nat, that is exactly what I had in mind when I started the sculpt, and i like the back too, give it a 360° justification... :)

    Owensiago, thank you!

    Yellowjacket, thanks, I tried to get the beast-feeling to show...

    Callmemilo, :) Thanks man

    Clutch, thanks a lot ;)

    Cultentacle, thanks very much :) !


    I just started on the poneytail, so the full bust should be finished by the end of the week, painted version to follow.

    thanks again to all of you for showing a respectfull interest in my work. ;) :)

    Hope you guys all had a great week end ! ;)

    Here is the progress on the bust, with the ponytail,

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    close up of The ponytail, with a rocky ring using the same design as the hand of doom, with glyphs and texture. I'm going for unity on the bust, with a justification for each part of the sculpt.
    After final cleaning, the ponytail will be molded.

    All questions about the bust should be send by mp, you know that anyway ;) .

    Enjoy your day.
    Nico.

    Very nice, when I saw the first pics I thought the pony tail was going to be done with hair, does anyone ever do that on busts?
    It has amazing detail, very cool!
