Here's what's in the works currently. The plan is to have a realistic bust of Vincent Price, with silicone skin, punched hair, acrylic eyes, etc. Should be a nice portfolio piece if it works out how I'm envisioning it.

I'm going for a "House on Haunted Hill" era Vincent.



Step 1: armature

The less the better, so it doesn't interfere with the proportions of the sculpture. The only reason to sculpt a head on top of another one is if it's going to be a mask.

Step 2: roughing out the sculpture


I use Chavant NSP Medium clay. This is a few sessions in. Still quite a ways to go, of course, but I thought y'all would like to see this from the beginning.

Incidentally, if you're thinking about doing some sculpting, you might find my Fright Radio segment on sculpting interesting: http://chickenhaunt.blogspot.com/2014/02/sculpting-tips-fright-radio.html

:) I believe you have nailed Vincent, it looks amazingly like him. Even the beginning looks outstanding.:D

~sigh~

I almost failed high school beginning ceramics. We're talking pinch pots, people! I couldn't get my hands to create what was in my head. There has always been this disconnect.

That said, I can better appreciate amazing talent when I see it. Jasper, Vincent looks incredible already! I imagine The Grinning Raven with LOVE this!

Thanks for the kind words, folks. Still a long way to go with this guy. Here's a few shots, each a couple days apart of the last week or so of progress





And then I lost track of the likeness, and he went into a weird Timothy Dalton land for a short time. No pics of that stage, but today I think it's starting to shape back up:
