    OH, MY GOD!!!!!!!

    stupendous!! i don't even know what to write...


    (couple of minutes later)... so how about you complete the face/facial hair, and then take "finished" shots of her as Alien 3 Ripley, before you go on and make her Aliens Ripley? is that possible? pretty-please? *bats eyelashes*

    i've adored Ripley most of my life, and love her bald, too!
    we even named our kitty after her!

    your talent is utterly mindblowing.
    Planning on doing exactly that actually

    Re: Silicone Sigourney/Ripley Portrait
    This looks absolutely phenomenal!!!! The skin tones are extremely life like. Is this something you might consider releasing as a resin bust down the track?
    No more resin for me I'm afraid, haven't made a resin bust in years. Too easy for recasters unfortunately.

    looking great steve. who do you use for eyes?
    Cheers Rich. They're custom made by a very talented occularist in London. He doesn't want to be known though I'm afraid.

    I literally spouted, "Holy s---!" when I saw the new photos. That about sums it up, I think.

    Best bust I've seen on the RPF so far. The subtle details are so spot on, it's almost unbelievable.

    I think it speaks volumes to the work that it would totally creep me out having that in my home. Excellent paint up, sculpt, the whole shebang! I was wondering about the shine, but the recent pics show it really toned down. Love it.

    The shine is actually a silicone spray that I applied for the photo to give her a sweaty look. It evaporates after a while.

    To be honest...I didn't think this level of art was possible.

    You are a shining light, and an absolute master.

    I feel like any adjective wouldn't serve you justice. So...I'll simply say, amazing. 10/10.
