as I said on CH Chris, excellent job man. I'd be interested to see what he might look like with a slightly smaller head. Perhaps if you have any Sil Putty your could do a quick wax recast. Head just looks a tad wide . Just a thought anyhoo.
Painted up, this will look killah!
BTW- as you can do such quality and your hulk has a fan in Erick S, you should apply to Koto in the US. They have vacancies for sculptors. I reckon you could make it.
Appreciate it, Tim! I may shave it down a bit on the side with a loop tool. I don't think it will take much. Part of it is how I have the mask covering the ears. I wanted to add features under the mask for realism and it can make the head look a bit wider. I wish it was already casted, so that I could paint it! I don't have any experience doing a full sculpt like this and I know I've basically got one shot with something this small and fragile. I may send it off, but I'm kind of scared it will get damaged or warp a bit if placed in a hot place.
I didn't know Erick was looking...I may check it out...is it on his website or? I would like to have at least one or two sculpt mass produced and have my name on a box..That would be really cool and make all the work worth it, but I just don't know if I'll be able to hit a deadline bc I work crazy hours and can have things pop up and have to work without much of a warning. It would definitely be high stress. I spoke to Erick a few times on the phone a while back and he did say he'd like to work with me one day and would like a statue, but he may have just been being nice. It's been a while.
Personally Chris, I'd just putty up the head and let the shrink do the work and that way you can keep the ears!
It's not Erick advertising, its Kotobukiya US; check out their site under Jobs. I just thought that you could ask him about who to send your stuff to. He'd know, I imagine and he likes your work. I get to be the Tea Boy though!! lol
I am sure he wasn't just being nice. It's an idea anyhoo. I know I'm getting desperate/meh with the work situation here. Really blows. I might send a few Digital bits in. Extra beer money would be nice.....
Maybe...I'm not sure how much repair work that would cause and if it would still line up with the neck. I still need to try out the new hulk cast with the uncast castilene hulk heads and see if it lines up. I may just cast the spider head in tms wax if I don't shave the side of it with a loop tool. I do however want a larger head to show spidermans shorter stature. I don't want him to look 6' 3" or something. Head size can sort of do that...though I don't think a 3-4% shrink would risk that...we'll see.
Yeah, man...give it a try. I didn't know koto was looking. I guess Erick may be leaving to start his own deal soon. Im a little leery about contracts and such. I wish I had more time, but I feel my real job would interfere. I'd rather someone just pick up and produce a sculpt I've already finished than be on a deadline with all that pressure. It may kill sculpting for me altogether.
