Anybody who has seen Pan's Labyrinth should recognize this guy, the Pale Man. I picked this (slightly bigger than) 1:1 bust up from a sculptor called deitycreations on e-bay.
I originally saw this on the clubhouse modeling forum and knew I'd have to have one, and today it arrived. Can't wait to get some paint on it!
As a tip, FWIW, I picked up a chrome paper towel stand at our local Bargain Shop today to use as a stand. The bust is hollow cast and foam filled, so I was able to push the stand right into the foam and voila...instant display stand. That's what the last pic shows....

Sweet. I've never seen the movie, but it looks like a cool piece. Keep us posted!
Do yourself a favor Justin. It's really quite the flick (and the pale man is one of the coolest "monsters" to come along in quite a while)..

The Pale man is cruel... really scary. Even if you just see him for a few minutes in the movie. I would not want to chased by him if I was a little girl...
Great find, post some pics up with the finished result later.

Oaky so I started laying down the base washes...lots of spaghetti noodling in thin reds to give a mottled look....

The after doing the same with some thinned blue and a wash of umber, I went back to a pale pinkish white to take everything back down.....

"Coming along" is a bit of an understatement, that thing looks ridiculous so far! Keep us posted, man!

OMG! That monster is PURE evil, I watched the movie and he is spine chilling when you see him sat at the table. Very cool indeed! Keep up the good work and I cant wait to see this when its complete.

Well I'm calling this done for now. I'd like to fix up the teeth a bit more but I'm pretty happy with the result so far.
Please excuse the poor lighting, best I could do indoors. Thanks for following along...
