Well, I mentioned in another post that I was working on a Superman Returns Shield. I wanted to show some progress pics. Those little "s's" have been a pain to sculpt but I'm finally done. The shield is 9 inches wide, 5.75 inches tall, and very thin. This is just the top part I will sculpt the yellow part next and make a two part shield that will be glued together. I will most likely cast the shield in urethane rubber. On to the pics.

Here is the shield before the "s's"



Here is another angle



It's very thin



The "s" texture

Pretty amazing bro . :thumbsup

I can only imagine what a pain that was, where patience is concerned,
you got the goods :lol Well, besides the OBVIOUS talent that is ;)

It's looks VERY nice man, seriously. If you decide to sell a couple of these
to recoup your R&D, please count me in .

BTW- What the hell WERE they thinking with all those "S's" anyway? :lol

Thanks everyone for the compliments. Once I get closer to finishing up the molds and the second part of the emblem I will post more information and pics.

Wow, I hope you didn't damage your eyesight with all those S's. (thinking of Blythe "The Forger" from The Great Escape.) That looks awesome.

I noticed that number 3,486 and 3,487 "S"'s are too close together.
Bah.
Amature.















Ummm...let me know when they're available. :$

Please tell me you have a little stamp you are using for the esses and not doing them all by hand.

Even so, it would take forever to do..

It looks great, can't wait to see the finished pics.
:D

:) Yes I made a litle stamp and yes it took quite awhile. Here are some updates


Well I finished the mold and the first casting. Here is a pic.



Then I finished making the back part of the shield, and put the two pieces together. Sorry the pic is a little shiny.



I just have to get a good glue to permanently attach the two pieces together.

Now on to sculpting the belt.

I did an "S" sculpture as well, but I was on a time limit and there was NO WAY that I was going to try to sculpt in all those little s's.
You did an AWESOME job on yours, I'm quite jealous. hehehe. I also love how thin it is. I was using a movie poster as reference rather than a photo of the costume because it was pretty early on when I was ask to do it... I'll post a photo, but its not nearly as detailed. (although I'm pretty happy with mine, yours does ROCK.)



(I'd also be interested in a copy of yours... As well as the belt when you get it done.)

Closer in size to the shield on the watergun. But it's all about relative scale when worn on your chest. I have a shot somewhere of the NYC display and a watergun in frame for comparison.
