    I always thought this would make a great bust. It's 1:3 Super Sculpey. This is my fist likness sculpt and it's not easy!! lol!

    Looks awesome, she certainly is a "looker".

    I was going to comment that I thought her "eyes" (not her eyes) were too high, but I think you got her eyes (not her eyes) fixed in the last pic. Not they they should even be visible in your final sculpt if you are holding true to the research photo.

    If this is your first sculpt, you're doing a fine job and much better than I could do! The resemblance is already there in your first pic and gets closer and closer with your progress. I hope this isn't your last!

    I can't really see Linda in there, but might be a good idea for my next sculpt, and then maybe the TX? Hmmmmmm...

    BTW, you should enter the Sculpting contest, all you need to do is change the name of the title. ;):thumbsup

    Yeah, it was nice that she agreed to pose for me!:lol

    You've really captured Summer's face here. I don't have any idea how you are able to do this. You are very brave

    Thanks guys! Glad you think it looks like her, but i've still got to twik a few things on her.

    Had some eyes arrive for her the other day that look quite good, although i'll probably make some myself when i get my pressure pot up and running.

    Here are the eyes. 8mm diameter.

    Looking really good!
    Not that i can help at all, but this reminded me of a rotoscope I did a few years ago in good old MS PhotoDraw. Used to love that program.
    Attachment is only low res, but it's still kinda cool, I guess.

    Nearly finished the sculpting part of this, just got a few bits that still need finessing. Hopefully should get this into the oven tomorrow!

    I'm working on it! Lol! I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like with the wires as well!

    Does anyone have any good pics of the wires and mechanics of the 1:1 scale version from Tokyo? Can't find many detailed pics of this area.

    Thanks Glyn800!

    Thanks Terminator! I'll have a word with them about making Cameron cyborgs! :lol

    Nice one! Thanks Judgedredd, they will definitely help.

    I've currently got her in the oven. 10 minutes left, then allow to cool over night. Fingers crossed she doesn't fall apart...

    She's out of the oven and no cracks formed! Yay!

    I Definitely think it helps not moving Super Sculpey sculps and leaving it in the oven overnight to cool.

    Just started sanding the ends of the arms and ribs to the correct shape.

    toooooo cool.

    That last photo where you have the PS hair in place really shows that your coming together on this. Little bit more effort and it will be better than the original, and easier to smuggle thru customs~ lol

    Did you get skin textures in before baking or will you add them later?
    The original has some very strange wrinking in the right diaphram and under the breast.... as though she might have had a corset bra on before they did the body casting.....or its a scar..... or it was just wrinkling in the molding material....~

    No matter what I have always loved this design and wanted to make something like it

    So I'll keep an eye out for more fun photos from you

    Thanks Bats! I thought about adding pores and fine texturing, but looking at the photos of her and the scale of this sculpt I thought I’d play it safe and not add to much. I have however put some fine lines around her forehead and neck.

    I've finished sanding the arms and ribs and think this is ready to mould.

    Sorry Bats, yeah you're right, the original does have some weird lines under the breast. Not sure what that's about really? I've not added them.

    I gotta say, I've been really impressed with the way this has been turning out. I've been subbed to another thread based on the same subject and it has never even come close to what you've achieved here. Great job :thumbsup

    Thanks JD! I'm going to mould and cast this and sculpt the hair and endo parts from the cast. I've also ordered some real hair to see what it looks like.

    Thanks epilepticsquirl, glad you like how it's turning out!

    Lol! Steve... it's the wrong scale...:facepalm
