Hunter Rose

1/6 Spacebase 2000 Inspired Astronaut Sculpt

Recommended Posts

Cheers Bob, couldn't agree more!

Ive been studying the sculpt, and i think im going to have to move the mouth up, it should be halfway between nose and chin and as hes going to be angry even a little higher. Can't believe i missed that, but its easy enough to correct.

I think it looks ok. We're assuming he's a human here, if he was slightly alien, couldn't they have a different physical make up? Not necessarily identical to homo sapiens?

Just my mad ramblings, feel free to ignore me. After all you're doing a thousand times better than I ever could.

Unfortunately he's human so can't use that excuse with my proportions Matt (but wish i could! Haha)

Tomorrow I'll smooth it over and do it again, don't really mind i want more a more angry look than it has now anyway

Okay so did a bit more today, mouth wasn't as much of a butcher job as i thought.

I beefed up the chin, nudged the mouth up slightly and smoothed the nasolabial sulcus, which i think look much better now. And i also roughed out the eyeballs.

Need to neaten up the left eye a bit and then I'll add the upper and lower lids to both and start to work on his scowl.

Feeling pretty pumped today, feels like his face is really starting to come together.

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Thanks Bob!

I did a little more, neatened up the face a little bit and made his brow more angry.

I did start the eyes but it wasn't going right, im going to study some reference material and photos and give it another go tomorrow.

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

That looks a lot better. Far more angry and menacing. Wouldn't like to get on his wrong side!

That is one angery looking face, looking better and better with every little tweek.

Cheers bud! I've found thats the best way to approach sculpting, as a constant process of tweaking, if you look back to where the face started its worlds apart now.

 

Okay so I think one thing that hasn't helped the eye progress is i think my sockets are too big so ive beefed up the cheek structure below it.

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Spent my lunch break tweaking the eyes and cheek structure, also bent his head further forward to get his line of sight to where he's shooting.

Really nice work Hunter. He reall reminds me of the Mekon form the old Dan Dare strips in Eagle comics. I may just have a go at him after seeing how you do it.

Question for you: How do you clean up the burrs and tooling marks without damaging the details? Is it like Miliput or traditional clay where you can use water to smooth things?
