Been a LONG time since I've posted anything here. I apologize!

Here's an older sculpt done for Sideshow Collectibles. It's a 1/6 Alec Guinness for their Obi-Wan Kenobi 12" figure. One of my favorite sculpting experiences, although it was very challenging.

enjoy! the figure was recently released and turned out wonderful!

what did you make this out of? the realism and amount of details would in my opinion receive praise from the old masters (were they alive today)

wow thanks!

this sculpt and most of the other little faces are made in hard wax. It's a much easier medium to use for this kind of stuff. You can sand it to a clean finish and carve into it with heated metal tools. You can also add wax back by dripping it to the surface. At first it sounds strange, but it's really a lot of fun, and much easier than Sculpey in some cases. I have a wax 'tutorial' in my journal if you're interested to look deeper.

Thanks for the high praise, I appreciate it,
Trev

Hmm I think I will check out your journal tutorial. I've never worked with wax but it sounds like an interesting methodology. Thanks for the info :thanks:

You might really like it. it would also be good for small animated character sculpts, because of how clean and smooth you can get the surface. a pound of the "TMS" wax I predominately use is about $13.00 plus shipping.
