    Hi everybody,

    This is the only comment I will make about all this and then I would like everybody
    here to just forget about it, ok, as I don't have the nerves, the time nor the energy
    to really care about it.

    Just for those who did not know what happened: I received two e-mails on one
    afternoon. One claiming to be from LFL and the other from Sideshow Toys. Both
    pretty much said the same thing: "Try selling these heads and we'll sue you".

    I took the pictures of both Mark and Alec down so they will not cause me any further
    trouble. Even though it is pretty clear now that both mails I got were fake, they show
    clearly how far some people would go to scare away (or get rid off) competition.

    Let me make this clear - the person who wrote these e-mails is probably NOT even
    a member here on the RPF, so I don't want anybody to play investigator or making
    up "JFK" Theories here - :lol ... I will settle this on my own.

    So just don't bother, continue the peaceful talk and enjoy the great hobby here, and
    don't let let yourself get dragged into such kind of crap.

    Thanks for the heads up, but it was nothing but somebody trying to stop me from
    making more of these sculpts - for whatever reason ... :( - sometimes I don't get it.

    Keep your heads up,

    Jesper

    He looks really good to me. I think that's an exceptional first 1:1 sculpt. What else do you sculpt?

    It always amuses me when someone who is clearly talented artistically says something like "please be kind" like the rest of us are artistic gods.

    You've produced a very professional sculpt JRX. Fantastic job as usual ;)

    May I ask you to post a shot of the back of the head? The hair (along with everything else) looks great, and I'm curious to see how you handled it in the back.

    Oh, by the way, did I mention :eek :eek :eek ?

    "Howard... there is another..." :lol

    God, how I *HATE* newbies who prance into our little community, lie through their teeth, and claim that their 5,959,473rd 1:1 bust sculpt is their first...

    How DARE you, sir?.?.?.? :p :lol

    Having said that...

    DON'T CHANGE A FRAKKIN' THING.... HE'S PERFECT...

    I've been waiting for years to see who would produce the first GOOD likeness of Old Ben, and by GOD, you NAILED him. :eek

    Another deserving member of - wait for it...

    Man that thing is just aching to be painted, and I'm drooling at the thought...

    So... What's NOT 100% perfect about it?

    You say first 1:1 head sculpt, but I CANNOT believe its your first scuplture ever, or any type.

    Could you share a bit about yourself, and your skills? Have you had formal training?

    No no - not my first sculpture ever - just my very first 1:1 Lifesize Headsculpt
    I ever did - I use to work in 6 inch scale - so normally the heads and likenesses
    I do are under 1 inch in size - :p

    I am a Freelance Action Figure Sculptor here in Germany. Most of the stuff I'm
    currently doing is "soccer" Action Figures for a company from the Netherelands.

    After all I've started sculpting only 3 or 4 years ago ... really Proffessionaly now
    for about half a year.

    I have had no "Formal Training" whatsoever - I'm an Autodidact - Selftought through
    the all famous technique of "Try and Error" - :D

    Liars will not be tolerated here on the board, so you might as well admit that this isn't your first sculpt and be done with it



    Thats amazing work, especially for a first one :thumbsup
