    Hi everyone,

    So I decided to finally go ahead with the 1:1 version of Ripley having done the 1/2 scale all that time ago. I've only had one day so far and I probably won't get back on it for another couple of weeks but I love this stage and thought I'd put up a couple of photos already. You need a bit of imagination but it is very early days.

    I'm going to finish her in silicone and the plan is to maybe do a full scale statue with Newt sometime in the future :cool

    Maybe a dumb question, but are you going to do a complett Ripley?
    With body and all or just the head?

    Either way, im looking forward to this.... good work so far

    great start mate, I really love the style of sculpting you have building up the form with beads of clay
    it's a very simular looking style to how Stan Winston worked

    look forward to seeing her finished as Iknow your silicone work is right up their with the best we have on the rpf

    Thanks everyone!! I'm getting excited about this project. Its so frustrating not to be able to work on it when I'd like though :wacko so no more updates just yet.

    There are no dumb questions.....well actually I have heard a few in my time but that definitely wasn't one of them :lol

    Eventually some time hopefully not too far into the future I'll be making a full statue with body, pulse rifle, flame thrower, boots, Newt - the works!

    haha must've been my riveting conversation :confused sorry

    Its actually just a very good way of marking the most important anchor points in the system of measuring that I use.

    Thanks!! That is very generous :$ And I obviously idolise Stan Winston like just about everyone else here so...

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Just incase anyone has any doubt about Steves capabilities and are not sure this Ripley sculpt can do nothing else but succeed, check out this little Gem Steve sculpted not long ago... Steve is an out & out portrait sculptor and you better believe it as Maddam Tussauds seems to agree ;)

    Thanks everyone!! :$

    Sorry about the late reply. I set aside a week to work on siggers here and then fell horribly ill. Always the way. Anyway I managed some time on her today and I'll add a photo at the end of this post. Started work on the torso and smoothing her out a bit. Still quite rough but getting there :thumbsup

    Thanks man! One of my favourites too, although I guess thats pretty evident :) And nice idea, Leighs alien is looking superb :thumbsup


    Thanks Jeremia! Great to see you on the boards. I'm going to post a thread soon that I think you will like. Email on its way...

    Wow Phil! :$:thumbsup That is massively humbling thank you mate. I will say though that Tussauds is not the be all and end all of portrait sculpture. As amazing as they are there, artists on here such as yourself are striving to reach and beat personal bests all the time and I say we'd give em a run for their money any day!


    Heres that update:
