These were fun, TINY little heads to work on with NECA. They're making some cool retro-style clothed figures of Herbert West and Dr. Hill's noggin from the cult favorite "Re-Animator". You can check out the final toys here: necaonline.com/2018/02/re-anim…

Sculpted in hard wax, as usual. The group shot are resin castings, and the glasses are a clear urethane also.

Hahahah! Well, I have to admit, Jesse, I'm like you and your wife....I had never seen it, either, and I watched it to study for this project. Horror is not my favorite genre, though... I do like Jeffrey Combs, so I enjoyed seeing what he did with his most iconic role. I always loved that guy in "The Frighteners".

Thank you, very much! He's fun and difficult to sculpt, I think part of my trouble was the tiny size, but I really struggled to capture his unique quality.

Thank you! I sculpted these in TMS wax. It's a great hard blend for when you need sharp detail. studiorgc.yolasite.com/wax.php
I also sculpt in castilene, mostly for bodies, but I'm starting to really like it for heads too. It's softer, but still plenty hard for detail. In some ways the softer qualities can be beneficial.
Hope that helps!

Haha! Yeah, the glasses drive me crazy. I've made about 4 characters with glasses in the last year, and each time it's more challenging than the last. :)

Thanks a lot, glad you like them!

i can only imagine how hard it is to do these glasses,
how are they made? they look incredible - the distortion
is spot on! :D and you're welcome!

Thanks! I sculpt them in wax with some wire and then make a mold. Often times it's just a mess getting resin into the mold and getting enough air-pressure in to make sure the castings are bubble free. If you can get that far, the challenge then is sanding and buffing something so small so that it's clear. Oddly, it works best with these tiny heads...If things are too thick you get a foggy transparency.

I've been waiting for someone to make something like this FOREVER. I know what my next purchase will be.
