Thanks for all the comments, its great to get feedback on a sculpt especially after its only been me starring at it for so long! I use an oil based clay, and am actually about to start using 'monster clay' for the first time, just need a bit more of it..

framdam,
What sorts of tools do you use? I am in need of picking some up, but am clueless a bit when it comes to how to sculpt properly/easily (not that sculpting has an "easy" way of being done, but certainly there a pro tips to not do things "the hard way"). I have been using my fingers mostly up to this point (with Chavant NSP Medium), but I have not gotten to any detail parts yet.
Also, how do you replicate the scaly skin texture so well?

Thanks.

I use anything that works, I do have traditional wooden sculpting tools, I also use some old tools such as hole punchers etc, there is even a toothbrush! But like anything its practice. You can buy books, look up online tutorials that are all great as i have picked up very useful tips like this but my advice is get some clay and get stuck in! I started making masks about 4 or 5 years ago, and I am still learning! Pm me sure if you have any questions.

Excellent sculpt of Bossk. Looking forward to see the hands and feet that you mentioned you are also doing.

Looking great buddy...your fine detail is getting better and better each mask. This is definitely your best so far

Thanks for all the comments, this has been slow build, but here is a progress picture of the stage I am at now. Head hands and feet now have a base coat, next step the final paint job then to add teeth and lens.
