He is great!! I am starting an undertaker for next year. Did the styrofoam skull that you started with have an open mouth? It looks like there was already some sort of tongue. The skull I have has it's teeth clenched together so, I'm wondering if I can get the same effect if I cut the lower jaw, like you did, and hallow out the top and bottom where the mouth would be.

Trinity1: Thankyou. Nope no formal training, I have just been sculpting and painting all my life. I can't wait to see what you do.

Mr Chicken: Dead spider is amazing.. all should check her blog out. Originaly I was going to make a replica of the Disney Hat Box Ghost but, I wanted a caretaker. Then I was thinking Lon Cheney and then I found DS tutorial.

Now I am really thinking about making replicas of all the classic movie monsters. Spending a year on each.

Mizerella,

I think the skull you used really makes the caretaker. Where did you get it? Do you recommend anywhere specific for getting skulls?

Thank you Curlgoddess.


bmhughes, The skull I got at walgreens i believe a couple halloweens ago. They had a ton, some with clenched teeth and some with agap mouths like mine.

This year was pretty pathetic for Halloween ...come to think I can't remember seeing life size styro skulls anywhere.

Excellent job, Miz!!
His face does look kinda Chaney-ish, and I love the pose...very dynamic.
Suggesting movement in a static prop is not at all easy, and you have accomplished it very well here.
