Mummified Vampire head

Something I am working on using some new materials I haven't used before,one of many projects to come as I try to broaden my horizons and try and get away from doing only helmets and sw stuff.
This started with a "life size" resin skull I use life size loosely as it is a good size but only life size if it was about a 12-15 year old def not adult life size.
I am using apoxie sculpt to sculpt the facial features.I sculpted in sunken in eyes etc.Once I get what I want done I will use a technique for making realistic looking decayed/mummified skin using nylons and RD-40 latex.Here is what I have so far.

Animated Pilot Chest box slideshow video

Animated Pilot Chest box

 Just finished it and threw a quick coat of white on it and took pics from and angle so you can see the details.Once it dries ill take a front on shot as these pics at the angle i took them at makes the box look long horizontally and short vertically.
I have some small nooks to fill before molding and need to add the last lower round button on the left side.

My web site finally being worked on

 I have had a site for about 8 years now and its been down for about 2 I think. So over the last few weeks i have started to re vamp it.I have posted a lot of old things I did way back in 98-99 when my sculpting skills were less than stellar lol but they were still fun and its cool to see where I'm at today compared to then skill wise.
Most artists are their own worst critics and I feel although I have come along way there is always room for improvement.
So if you get time poke around my site here is the link.
