More Clone Bust Progress

So I had some friends look at this and they all agreed the spacing between the bottom of nose and top lip was to long on my sculpt.So I cut the mouth off and chin and moved them up about a 1/8"+. Now I think its about where it needs to be.Now Ill have to reshape and clean up around those areas.
I also need to work on the lips a little. I did reduce the length of the eyebrow as well.Still way off from being done but a definite improvement.The l;ips need to be fuller and I dont think we will get the full effect til I get this done and one painted.Still a ways to go.

A pic from the show so you can see what I'm going for.

Repaired and Repainted

So I repaired the damaged stealth pilot helmet seen in a few posts below.I had to rebuild the broken section and then sand.I also opted to remove the deacls and strip and and paint it more like what was seen in the show.

I custom mixed up the weird bluish grey paint and re striped it with 1/8" white pin striping.The clear coated it with a satin finish not to shiny not to dull.the first few pics are before the clear coat.

1:1 Scale Cone Wars Trooper bust

So I started on a 1:1 scale Clone trooper bust from the animated series.I'm doing generic bald one so it could be customized later for different clone by adding hair,facial hair,tattoos etc.
I may try and cast some in silicone and try and make it some wearable ones,but that down the road and dont even know if i want to bother.
Im using chavant NSP medium over a 1:1 head armature.Here is what I have after about 2 hours.It's way off from being done and Im sure i'll change things several times before im happy.

Mangalore progress

With the holidays and all the other crap going on in my life I haven't had much time to work on this. I did a little tonight.Still really early building up left side now.I know there are a lot of things that dont jive from one side to the other but its still a real early sculpt.I changed the mouth a bit to give him a more of a scowl.Im also changing the chin a little as well.
