Loved the live action movie and book when I was a kid .Finally watched it a few days ago and totally enjoyed the creatures.So I'm going to sculpt and build myself a Carol.It will be about 6th scale which If you saw the movie they were huge about 8 ft tall I'm guessing mine will be about 20+ inches tall which will be pretty good size.
I started my head armature like I did the animated Jabba sculpt using wadded up tinfoil coated in bondo.
I bought some 30mm glass eyes set them in using clay and now have begun to rough in the face using super sculpey polymer clay.Its a very early stage but this is about 30 minutes later.
Once I get the head roughed in Ill build a sculpting armature basically a wooden dowel mounted on a piece of 3/4" plywood. I will mount the head to this and build down.This will help support the sculpture.
Once the full sculpt is done Ill mold it and cast it in resin.I have already bought the fur and hair to add later once I am at that stage.
