I wanted to share my progress on what I’m calling BBQ MAN. Since there aren’t too many outside decorations this year (long, sad story) I wanted to have something as a main attraction when ToT’s come up to the door. I had the idea a few days ago and finally found the time to start yesterday. I wanted a man, standing in his front yard, very casual as if it’s a steak on the grill, bbq’ing his own head. (These ideas are what happen when you don’t sleep)
I only have about 3 hrs in him right now, so hopefully today he’ll be fleshed out and ready for details. The skull is just for visual reference, I will be making the severed head and neck from scratch (hopefully). I wanted to try the hot coal effect that I’ve seen around here, so that’s what he’ll be bbq’ing over and that will provide the light for the face and body.
A very quick sketch of what I was looking for.
Base, legs, raw materials.
Rough measurements to make sure he's not towering over the grill.
Close to what the final pose will be.
I'll post more as progress is made.Wish me luck.
