    Hi all,

    This is a project that I will soon be coming back to as I've long since wanted to do a silicone Clint bust. I will have to start again though, because these photos are of my 2 week head trial at Madame Tussauds a year and a half ago! Like my Sigourney sculpt, this has been on my mind for a couple of years and I'm going to go mad if I don't get it out of my head and into clay very soon :lol

    Just wanted to show these photos as a way of spurring myself on really. Your goals are much more likely to be achieved when you keep them infront of you I say.....

    What a talent - I hope Tussaud's recognised it?

    Can't wait to see your silicone "Man with no name" Clint - a classic character from a classic trilogy!

    Love Dirty Harry! Looks great! I think the hair really helps develop the over look in resemblance.

    Wowsears! Thanks everyone :$

    Thanks mate. They did and they didn't, in that order really. They offered me a freelance position sculpting heads but I wanted a contract. So I worked there at ground level on the proviso that they would offer me a head to sculpt on contract when the timing was right. A year went by and I got pigeon holed with no mention of a sculpting position, so I left to pursue my own things. You can't sit a portrait sculptor next to a bunch of portrait sculpts, tell him to push some wax around and expect him to stay :rolleyes Still, might try and go back one day as a freelancer. But I was told I'd have to do the head trial all over again if I did :wacko

    Sorry, that turned into my life story didn't it :lol

    Ha! Good call :)

    Very well done. I'm curious about the armature as it looks like a bit of overkill for just a bust. Is it to accommodate the heavy plaster mold?

    That is absolutely fantastic!

    It just... IS.... Clint Eastwood! Amazing how you are able to capture the actor's little nuances that everyone recognises at a subliminal level when watching a Clint Eastwood movie! :eek
    In fact, I'd say writing 'Clint Eastwood' in the Thread's Title is Overkill, as 99% of people in the Western World would instantly recognise who the sculpt represents.

    Just disappoints me a 'lil bit when an excellent likeness is posted, of an actor who I would have no mannequin display usage for. Kinda like the fantastic Bruce Willis sculpt from a while back, sculpted by a talented Frenchman.
    If you could just turn your talents onto an actor from the Star Wars Original Trilogy, then I would be able to 'tick' both boxes! ;)

    :lol.... And the vote for the best gag in this thread goooeeeessss ttooooo.... Betamin! cue the applause!

    Cheers,
