Alec Guinness Head Sculpt by TrevorGrove Alec Guinness Head Sculpt by TrevorGrove
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!

Alec Guinness Head Sculpt by ~trev-solo is spookily life like, the fine details of the skin, the texture of the hair and especially the detailing of the eyes is perfect. The subject has definitely been meticulously researched and this is wonderfully apparent in the final piece. ( Featured by Thebuild )

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)

TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
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.

oh really? that's quite affordable! I may have to check it out, although I wish I had a studio or something to work on it on. I got a giant bag of cheap clay from class I still could use too....

thanks for the info :thanks:

You know, I really don't use a lot of space with my sculpting, if it's any consolation. A studio space is GREAT, but I tend to sculpt on the couch in the living room or just at a very small desk. So long as you have a good light source (like a small desk lamp) and a comfy chair...you should be fine! (if you're making small models)

oh and that cheap clay can probably be turned into all kinds of awesome stuff!

ha well I currently have neither a comfy chair nor a table lamp (seriously, our living room has no light!). but I suppose I could work in the garage or something. And yes I was actually planning on modeling my "sharky blobbo" deviation. I have been contemplating animating him for awhile :)

TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
ooh shucks! I'm sorry. Working in the garage doesn't sound too bad, if you have some room! I think we all end up working wherever we can with our art at some point. ha! I've worked in a garage, on a kitchen table, in the living room...I don't know if I'll ever have an ideal work place.

Oh, you've GOT to sculpt some of your creature character designs! Those are really cool! The Sharky Blobbo is hilarious! I'd like to see the depressed whale too...maybe walking the peer. haha...nobody would suspect hi
that pirate monster should also be a sculpt...

I hope you play around with it, I'd love to see what you come up with.

TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
hehe, no, it's made from a hard wax. The sculpt is very small, as it was done for a 12" action figure. I doubt I could manage working in marble. ;)

it LOOKS like marble! i don't think i'd consider 12" small. that's HUGE! the biggest sculpture i've ever done is about 8 X 6 X 1 inch. it's so detailed! yes...marble would be hard. that's why i was curious. :)

:icontrevorgrove:
TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
well, the head is only about 2 inches tall. the figure it was made for is about 12". :) yeah, a 12".
Thanks again for the kind words! I'm glad it looks classy to you, like a marble sculpt!
