Outstanding work. Especially E.T. You absolutely NAILED E.T.

Star Wars or not. They're worth showing to the world I say.

Heres a piuece i'm doing for a friend, he sent me an unpainted latex head of a zombie from the movie return of the living dead, heres the original zombie its based on
Image
and my painted version, still got to add the hair to it but the paintjobs done
Image
the sculpture was well done i thought, but the teeth were quite different to the original and the eys were sculpted wonky, i've done the best i can with it, now onto the hair

Now i've looked at it again i think its a tad to green, so i'll add some flesh tones to it tomorrow, tone it down a bit

Cheers, my wife feels the same lol, i don't have much from my business days it was all sold on, but i kept the old man from UP.
I use acrylic eyes in my heads which are very lifelike, and i backpaint them to make the colours stand out,the ET eyes were the most difficult due to the size, but i got it done in the end
