so did you hire jordu schell for this? He sculpted it if I am not mistaken.
PilcrowDesigns's avatar
nevermind.. looks like you and jordu made the same piece around the same time? haha
godaiking's avatar
He made an MJ bust too? I'd love to see it knowing his talent...
PilcrowDesigns's avatar
ya, pretty crazy too. The two are from the same scene/look. I thought yours was his at first cause who would of thought 2 people made the same thing around the same time? here is an image of his. [link]

Dude, that bust looks totally different from mine.

I know, looking at the two side by side.. I was going off memory of jordu's and thinking "who else would be doing this?". I thought yours might of been a casting of his with another paint up applied.. I was wrong. My bad. Both done a cool job.

No biggie. Didn't realize that he was doing an MJ bust also. I really admire his work.

This is INSANELY good. This is by far the most acurate sculpt of his face from the Thriller era that I havve ever seen. I bidding on it. Hope I win.

Its pretty good! but this color is just slightly darker.
but to bad:)
punkylemon's avatar
I agree, actually. Only by, like, half a shade though. This is still pretty darn amazing!
godaiking's avatar it isn't.

I've studied several Thriller era photos in brightest lighting possible and this tone is pretty near exact. I shot this pic in a very bright room.
