    Welcome back Steve! Ripley never looked better.

    You should show off your Arnold, Paxton and Biehn sculpts to remind everyone of what incredible work you do.

    I LOVE that!

    It kinda looks like it's moving.

    Like it's abstract, but not... with the use of color and textures...

    IDK how to describe what I mean, so I hope you get that I'm complimenting your work!

    Some people go for EXACT texture with silicone and hairpunching... and sometimes that IS better for a piece. But I REALLY like the vibe of this!!!

    You really NAILED the feeling and essence of the Character and movie. Not just Sigorney Weaver in costume/makeup.

    Very impressive work. Would truly like to see more! :)

    Thanks alot guys! :$

    Thanks for the welcome Simmon, its good to be back :)

    Speaking of Arnold, did you ever get the hairwork done on yours?

    Thanks OldKen thats a very kind thing to say :thumbsup

    I do know what you mean, the texturing is slightly heavier than usual because at this scale it needs to stand out. Its a very organic piece with alot of life, and movement is very important to me no matter how still the pose.

    WOW Steve welcome back, awesome paint job and sculpt.
    I have seen this piece in real life and it´s absolutely amazing guys.
    This is still one of the best likenesses ever made in my opinion, and it´s
    a lot harder to make woman.

    Good luck on the sale and hope to see a life size version of Ripley one day:thumbsup

    Your avatar looks like a movie still. That's awesome. Even my wife said 'Heeeeey, not bad' as she was passing by and stopped for a second look.

    Hey Steve... Great to see this finally painted and like Bjorn suggested, you really need to do a lifesized version. Show us all what you're capable of now after working a few years as a pro at Tussauds, buddy ;)

    Even before leaving us all here, your Arnie bust is, not just, by far the greatest Arnie likeness I've ever seen - its also THE most lifelike bust ever to grace this site!

    PS... probs see you for a few pints next month... the drinks are on you - only joking ;)

    And may I say the lengths to which you are going with the accuracy of your Yoda is very inspiring.

    Look forward to a few pints in London town next month :cheers
