    Great work, can I ask what you use for your skin texturing? Looks great.

    Thanks, I use a piece of clear plastic and a sculpting tool and i go over the whole thing with pores, Then i use a brass and plastic bristle brush to go over certain areas for different texture, Then i use a clay slip/slurry to add some outward texture so its not all just indents and i add goosebumps on the neck also with the clay slurry and a needle pushed into the clay at around a 30 degree angle. I also use a 3 pronged sculpting tool to carve in wrinkles etc and fine lines.

    Thanks for this. Must have some good reference photos

    I am having a nightmare finding decent ones for my sculpt, everything is low res and painted up!

    Are you going to be doing silicone busts or resin? Would look amazing in silicone!

    Yeah i have some great photos of skin texture for him but what i do is generally the way i do most heads and i clean up and resculpt a lot of lifecasts in my job so you get used to it. I remember when i sculpted my Ledger ages ago that i had some good pics of him without the makeup up close.They are out there....just keep looking or if you can get a lifecast of someone it will really help. Ill be doing a few in Resin and a few in Silicone.

    Here's some pics of the first 4 castings. Mold is very good. There's barely any seam on them at all.

    Amazing work! The detail is incredible. Do you have any videos of your skin texturing techniques or of the molding process? Both are fascinating to me.

    Thanks!

    Those eyes are great! This project is moving along perfectly. I usually get my eyes from eye optic, but I would be interested in seeing what you get for yours if you make them for profit.

    One of the best busts I've seen. Fantastic. I'm almost jealous because I want to do a Rick Grimes now but I only like to do pieces that I feel I could improve on or that there aren't many works of. But that's pretty much spot on.

    Thanks a million. That's a great compliment. I'm very happy with where this is going. I've finished the painting now and I'm ordering hair for him. In the meantime I'll be starting a new project tomorrow.
