Guillermo Del Toro NECA by TrevorGrove Guillermo Del Toro NECA by TrevorGrove
A handful of little Guillermo's! This was a really fun, unique project to get to work on with the team at NECA. They're producing a fun 8" tall clothed figure of Guillermo Del Toro that will be released at SDCC. news.toyark.com/2018/05/26/gui…

These are the resin castings. Glasses cast in clear resin. Original sculpture hand-made in wax.

Worst Philip Seymour Hoffman likeness since he played Twister. Now if he rode the bulls, (or if you believed my bull) he'd Del Toro-Toro pretty awesomely!

How cool would it be to have a Trevor Grove sculpted figure of yourself (or loved one)? Amazing work... again!

Thanks! These particular toys are made with poseable bodies that the toy company makes little clothes for. You can see the finished toy in the link above in the description to get an idea. I'm typically only hired to make the heads for projects like this.

It looks spot-on like him, but my first thought was Phillip Seymour Hoffman and no one should fault me for that.

:D I don't fault you at all. In sculpture form, a lot of people end up looking similar to each other.

Thanks so much! I've made so many characters with glasses in the last couple of years, and they're always so challenging to get right....oddly the smaller the glasses, the more clear they end up looking, so....I suppose that's an advantage.

CadaverCrafts Featured By Owner May 27, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I assume you have to sculpt the glasses seperatly so they can be cast in resin? That sounds really fiddly
Reply
:icontrevorgrove:
TrevorGrove Featured By Owner May 27, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes, you're right! I sculpt little glasses over a wire so that they don't break, and then mold them so they can be cast in clear. It's a struggle sometimes to get it to work....It's always nice when the frames are thick like Guillermo's so that you have a more substantial thing to work with. :)

That's awesome to hear! Thanks! I tried to sculpt his eyes a little bigger so they would look magnified through the lenses...I feel I've been making so many characters with glasses in the past year, and they're always a real challenge.

awesome trick, dude! haven't noticed and with the bigger
eyes you captured him perfectly.

i can imagine, man! even if you can't tell it was a challenge
for you. ;)
