    The eye socket really has nothing to do with the eyebrows - it always stays in the same place regardless of how you move your eyebrows. You could have placed one of them slightly up without it looking out of place. The face cast certainly lent itself to that expression.

    But I guess that's too late now.

    Looking wild with all that b-movie type blood on there.

    This is looking, "Groovy".Don't forget to add eye lashes.

    True, the eye sockets themselves don't move, but the musculature around them does. I tried raising just one eyebrow in front of the mirror and it changes facial shapes around the eye (which I did not have on this bust) so I went in a different direction. That said, the large iris eyes in the last pic I posted of him do give him a very bland expression.

    I got in the new eyes for my Terminator bust with smaller 11.3mm irises and wanted to try that out before placing on order for eyes for Ash. As you can see from the pic below, I think the smaller 11.3mm is definitely the way to go. MUCH more expression now.

    Remember, these eyes will be dark brown (not Hazel as shown here) - and there will be eyelashes:

    Eyes are better. Just wondering: do you want that downward look? You can go really crazy and have him look slightly to one side and slightly up, meaning that some of the iris will be covered by the upper eye lid.

    Also, you should trim and shape the eyebrows to match more how they look on the actor - angle things some more.

    Awsome tutorial mate. I this the same set of colours you used on your t2 stage 4 bust?

    Could you do me a favour please? Could you list the paints with their numbers as im have trouble tracking them all down. Im in the Uk too. Can I ask who you use to supply them?

    Any other colours I may find useful whilst im ordering?

    Big thanks

    Not sure on the final look yet. I've experimented with some other eye positions - the other look I may go for is slightly to one side and down:



    I'm reluctant to have him look to the side and up because coving the top of the iris will loose the surprised/scared look.

    I will have a look at the eyebrows and see if I can make them more angular.

    Yes, this is basically the same colours as on Arnie. Though I think I used a bit more ochre on him as his skin tends to be a bit more brown.

    What paint numbers are you after? Most of the paints that I've used are Citadel paints which don't come with numbers on then, just names. They're available at any Games Workshop. Though the Elf Flesh and Dwarf Flesh are now out of production (BOO!) so those will have to be ordered online (I got a small stock from eBay as soon as I heard they were being discontinued).

    Thankyou howl! I will be tracking and ordering them today (in fact ive got a GW close to me.

    Can I ask, what primer do I need for resin? Also what quantity of paint is required of each colour for something like this (im going to attempt my T2 which ive had for a while). They come as 12ml pots so is that more than enough once thinned?

    I will also need some new brushes. Any recoomendations?

    If you do a video, I would be more than happy with any type of cam lol

    I suppose you can really use any type of primer, but I always use the Citadel bone white spray Primer (also from Games Workshop). Unlike most primers I've come across (such as those sold by Halfords for cars), it dries to a great texture (VERY slightly powdery, rather than glossy smooth) that paint works brilliantly with and it doesn't fill in pore details like other primers might.

    One pot of each colour is usually more than enough for one head. If you're doing a big bust with shoulders (like Arnie), you may want to get 2 pots of your base colour, just to be sure.

    No recommendations on brushes really - the one I use for mottling on the paint is ancient and really REALLY scabby and splayed (but it gives a great effect when mottling). Any new, decent paintbrushes I need I get from Hobby Craft.

    Sorry, yeah, I do mention two different things! It's Kislev Flesh. Don't know why I got confused there. Tallarn Flesh is now out of production anyway.

    was surprised to find a store within a mile from my house that sells citadel paints. The said the dwarf flesh and elf flesh were old colors and had 3 bottles of each for $1.50 each. bought the lot. Had the rest of the colors too. Thanks for the tutorial. Thinking about re-repainting my 1/1 watto using this technique.

    Hey,
    Nice job! I'm ridiculously new to rpf(in fact, this will forever be my very first post!).
    I feel it is fitting since I worked for KNB fx in the early 90s and was lucky enough to help out a little on Army of Darkness. I just helped paint latex into the skeleton warrior armor molds, I did cooler stuff later on. Well, I just wanted to start reaching out, again, very cool. I'd encourage you to make a mold of the finished product.

    OK, the final eyes turned up, so I can get back to work on this....

    New 28mm eyes with an 11.3mm brown iris from Tech Optics. And a dark brown wig.



    Still have to cut and style the hair and add blood around the hairline, and I haven't tried to alter the eyebrows yet, and no eyelashes yet. I think I'll stick with this wig, but I may change to a gregory wig before cutting and styling. Thoughts?

    Those Tech Optics eyes are amazing.
    Iris size makes a huge difference.

    Eyelashes will make them pop.

    OK, finally got time to get this one finished.

    This is the main reference image set that I've worked from:



    Blood work was based on the left image, with hair based on the right image.

    So, since the last update, I have sorted the hair - no cutting (Ash has long hair at the start of the film) but did style it using wet-look firm-hold hair gel, added eyelashes (individual hairs glued on), added blood along the hairline, and smudged/broke up the edges on the bloody scars.









    And a slight movie cross-over:

    Ha ha ha....that is just an awesome result mate. Amazing how those little details like the iris size etc really have made an impact on your end product. It certainly has been a very helpful thread.

    Really really enjoyed it mate. Next please?

    Your resculpting and your paint RULES. LOVE the eyes (and thought the idea you had to have him looking off and down gave him some real personality).

    I think your hair needs to be tweaked a little. Examine his hairline. I figure it might be really difficult to do anything with the resin, but you're almost there, and the project might benefit from a bit more tweaking.

    The one other thing - and it's the thing that's holding this back from being just absolutely flawless in my view - the EYEBROWS. Look to their shape and the placement near the bridge of the nose.

    Your work here is inspirational - I seriously feel like trying this myself after seeing that it can be done. The thing with the floral foam? And the ears? Just awesome problem solving, man. Truly.
