    Nice, character has a lot of life in the eyes.

    I'm no yoda expert but do the ears need to be bigger? I know it's a wip so it already might be on the to do list

    Yeah the ears are just the first run still, havent re-worked those yet. Mainly because one of them is a piece of wood that is secured to the main armature.
    Im aiming at getting the whole look as close to the ESB as i can.

    Thanks for the compliments on the expression too, seeing as he will be more of a bust than a puppet i need the expression to show.

    Thanks everyone, hopefully some more photos at the weekend!

    totally agree, I think if you are making a bust, its actually more important to get the character and life in the sculpt rather than trying to make it technically accurate.
    you can get away with a lot if your finished piece has "feeling"

    Ahhh...W.E.D. clay...I miss my big batch of it, had to throw it out when I moved. I upgraded to some chavant NSP though, that stuff rocks! Great looking sculpt man, can't wait to see where this goes, and like the others said, welcome aboard!

    Okay, that currently looks like the EP1-3 and Clone Wars Yoda should have looked. :thumbsup
    A little tweaking and more wrinkles and you will make the travel 25 years into the future, aging him into an ESB version.
    As has been said before, don´t go for technically accurate, go for essence and spirit with that sculpt!

    Is it hard to cast a mold using water based clay?

    Re: Yoda 1:1 W.E.D Clay sculpt.

    Hey buddy, no i find it really easy, a nice even layer of err, well, lacquer I'd call it, clear coat, on the finished sculpt helps to give a nice finish and eases the release from the mould. Also water and a brush will easily remove any little shaper details that may get clogged up.

    Thanks for the Info! What is the brand of Lacquer that you use? Do you use water based clay to make the mold walls? Also are you going to be selling this Yoda?

    Re: Yoda 1:1 W.E.D Clay sculpt.

    Hey you're welcome, any automative brand will do or at least ive never had any problems, as long as the clay isnt too moist and its only applied in few very thin coats. I started him off as a little personal project but depending on how well he finishes up I may be selling a couple of pulls or something just to help the next project. At the minute I'm actually really happy with the progress and cant wait to get some better pics up to show everyone how much hes changed. Thanks for the interest!

    Big thanks to my buddy Tim who took time out of his busy schedule to take this away and photograph him for me :)

    Next, get the paintup done, eyes filled and hair punched, Then it'll be another photography session!

    Oh, pics dont show him with his finger and toe nails and cane but they're all done too, ready to assemble to him ... Let me know what you think! thanks.

    Hey, thanks. Yeah I will be doing a small run of 10 of these. Just to cover costs and help me out on my next few projects that include, berserker and scar predator heads from the movies PREDATORS and AVP. Vader unmasked, predator 1 torso and eventually skins. Also I'm really wanting to do a bust of the scene in predator where the pred pins arnie up against the tree by the throat... cant wait to have a crack at sculpting arnie. Just the heads and upper shoulders of the two and the preds arm and hand holding him up. I think that'll be really cool to get a full 360 of that moment. Sooooo
    Busy, busy, busy.
