    Hi guys, I'm still in the middle of painting her but got excited to show these photos! She'll eventually be finished with the '86 hair style, but right now obviously looks a lot more like Alien 3.

    Also wanted to start a new thread because I see the clay and the silicone as two completely separate pieces using different sets of skills.

    Hope you like her.....

    Absolutely great work.

    I honestly thought that you posted actual photos of her from some movie behind the scenes.
    So lifelike. I look forward to seeing your completed bust

    OH, MY GOD!!!!!!! :love

    stupendous!! i don't even know what to write...


    (couple of minutes later)... so how about you complete the face/facial hair, and then take "finished" shots of her as Alien 3 Ripley, before you go on and make her Aliens Ripley? is that possible? pretty-please? *bats eyelashes*

    i've adored Ripley most of my life, and love her bald, too!
    we even named our kitty after her!

    your talent is utterly mindblowing. :)

    Absolutely amazing! I'll never figure out how you got this to look exactly like her but even more incredible is how alive it looks. A lot of the time even with perfect sculpts some busts come out looking just like the person but you can still tell its a sculpture. This actually looks like she's alive. Amazing.

    Sorry for the late reply guys, always want to come back with an update. Thanks so much for all the extremely kind feedback! I'm enjoying making this piece and enjoying sharing it even more :thumbsup

    Heres the update, painted and sealed with a wig on so far.....

    [​IMG]


    Planning on doing exactly that actually :)

    No more resin for me I'm afraid, haven't made a resin bust in years. Too easy for recasters unfortunately.


    PM on its way ;)

    Cheers Rich. They're custom made by a very talented occularist in London. He doesn't want to be known though I'm afraid.

    I think it speaks volumes to the work that it would totally creep me out having that in my home. Excellent paint up, sculpt, the whole shebang! I was wondering about the shine, but the recent pics show it really toned down. Love it.

    The shine is actually a silicone spray that I applied for the photo to give her a sweaty look. It evaporates after a while.

    To be honest...I didn't think this level of art was possible.

    You are a shining light, and an absolute master.

    I feel like any adjective wouldn't serve you justice. So...I'll simply say, amazing. 10/10.
