Added the first couple coats of paint to the skin, metal eye and stubble. I know the stubble is over-exaggerated but after I start layering the paint overtop, it should be much more subtle.

The skin lost the texture after sanding the Apoxie. I just have to paint it to look good and hope that its convincing...

I would see about applying the skin tone with a sponge. That is a little trick I did on the few busts I didn't send Streetjudge to paint for me :lol. Just get a nice flat skin tone and a touch of blue, red, and brown, and slowly dab little amounts of color until you get what you like. the sponge helps make the texture.

I used this technique on Howard's Rocky:

What you could do is get the squadron green putty, testors liquid glue, that smooths it out, then use an orange peel for the texture

I applied about 7 different layers of skin with 4 different colors. I couldn't find any glass eyes, so I painted a ping pong ball. I think the skin looks ok now...it's only my second time painting skin...what do you think?

Thanks to everyone for their advice. I gave Arnie a "tan", brought back some of the stubble, and then used clear nail polish to make the eye glossy:











The lips still aren't quite right but he's getting there!

I like it but his eyes are Hazel;) The thing I think really ages him his the sag in the corner of his human eye from old Arnie;)

Beautiful work though:)

Looking fantastic!!!

Love the tan and the stubble, and yes, hazel eyes.....i would also keep coating the eye with clear until you have a wet look to the surface,

This is going to look incredible with T1 hair!!!!

Nice job and Taz is right, Arnie's eyes are hazel.

If you're interested, here's highres image I took of the animatronic Arnie when I was at Winston Studios:

How did you get a tour of those studios? Is it open to public? I would love to check that out!

Looking good and like the effect on the skin tone. At that particular point in the movie however, he was sporting a rather pale and sickly skin tone, as the skin was dying from the damage he'd sustained throughout the movie.

Another thing to work on is the separation line between the lips. Currently, upper and lower lip looks fused together, because the separation line was painted over with the lip color, instead of left darker.

Thank for all the feedback guys...still a bit of tweaking to do...lips and eyes should be done tonight. Thanks again - you guys rock!

Looking into getting a wig now...looks like China is the only option for me since there don't appear to be any here locally...

Looking good. What will seal the deal is the hair and the gargoyles with the eye shinning through.
The Hair will make or break this bust for me. Get it wrong, might end up looking T2 ish....
Just keep it fairly short on top and long at the back, mullet ish, and you should get pretty close.
Looking forward to seeing more :)

Well, Winston Studios is closed now after the sad passing of Stan.

Sadly @coldblackice you can't simply arrive for a tour of most of the studios unless you work in the industry (as I do) or by way of a special invitation from someone working there.

Painting lips isn't easy. The color has to somewhat match the skin tone and have a red/purple tone. I've repainted about two dozen coats on here mixing colors and I've been looking at them so long that I just don't know how they look anymore...I need another set of eyes and opinions.



Here are the eyes with more brown and green added...I still left a hint of blue just for the layering effect:
