I did years ago when I first started sculpting, I don't have any pics now, this was pre digital, it wasn't that good looking back, I did it based on the Sebastian shaw look from the end of jedi.
Maybe one day i'll redo it

Cheers mate, nice of you to say
I was recently asked to make a bust of the master or mr barlow character from the TV miniseries Salems lot, one of my favourites
Heres the clay sculpture

Image
after it was finished, I then had to make a two part mould in order to be able to make rubber copies
here is the sculpture with the mould wall added for the first half of that mould
Image
once finished I have a two part plaster mould
Image
here is the front half of the mould
Image
Here is the nearly finished head with led eyes added

Super work mate, so much talent and hard work goes into each of your pieces, they are superb mate. Proud to own some of your work.
Love seeing the process of the piece. That's a creepy master, the eyes really finish it !
I remember watching the original series with David Soul ( of Starsky and Hutch fame) quite good actually as I remember.

Glad to see some more of your work mate :D

So Christmas is coming and I was playing with the idea of doing a star wars piece, maybe something that would hang on the wall or a full head similar to yoda
How about a large rancor headpiece, or a wampa? if I get any interest i'll see about making it

Mmmmmmm

Wampa & Rancor would be winners

C3 PO would be a cracker

How about:
Space slug from ESB
Sarlacc

Cantina creatures
Greedo, Jawa, Devaronian, Hammerhead, Ponda Baba,
:D

So many choices to do, trying to keep it around the £100 mark so its more affordable, I like the space slug idea, but they are all good choices, have to see what happens
