Hi guys

I've started work on my 1:1 Poltergeist clown sculpt, with the intention of making a complete clown doll.

It's still in the really rough stages, just getting the shapes figured out, so there's lots of work still to do on this before I mold it and create the final head in slush-cast resin.

Here's the sculpt so far after a few hours work this weekend.

Mock-up using a tea towel as a hat:





Let me know what you think so far.

Cheers,

Al

Would hate to wake up and see that staring at me at night in a lightning storm even without the paint.

It looks like you would need to squish his chins together a little more and make the chin rounder under his eyes.

Do you mean slim the chin area down and add more roundness to his cheeks?

I'll be looking at those things for sure, as I fine-tune the sculpt. I appreciate your thoughts.:thumbsup

The roundness of the chin under his eyes, It might just need to be a little rounder

Gotcha - yeah, thanks for that mate.

I've actually made progress in that general direction today:



The top of the cheeks need finished off, I will do that when I fine tune the eyes.

Here's a pic of the planet Hollywood clown I've been using for reference:

Looks really great. My only comment is that you need to make the teeth thinner and add more. I think there are 13-14 bottom teeth.

Even though I hate this clown, I think I would have to buy one when finished!

LOL thanks guys. You can buy one and burn it, it will be like therapy! ;)

Cheers Brad - I will try to replicate the screen used teeth closely when I refine that area.

This clown is the entire reason I hate clowns. Saw this movie when I was 8, and to this day, I still hate the clown scene.

No plans to do an evil clown Ian, although looking at it, it would be pretty easy to adapt from the "nice clown" (ok, it's never really nice lol) once completed.

Doc, it would be excellent to put one in a nursery - good idea! Maybe I'll donate one to my local nursery, but to be honest they won't be scared - my 3 kids all went there, that'll have hardened them to anything.

Fred - yup it's one scary-ass clown. I didn't like clowns as a kid even before Poltergeist and IT. But making one is quite cathartic, once you start deconstructing something them sculpting and building it, it isn't quite so scary anymore. Does that make sense?

You realize that saying 'scary clown' is redundant right? They're all freakish and should be killed with fire.

Re: The Poltergeist clown - a WIP thread - new pics added

Looks great so far. I think the cheeks need to be a bit more boulbus closer to the sides of the nose.
