    Have never attempted to sculpt before but thought I'd give it a bash, both are unfinished.

    I'll not say who they are meant to be to see whether anyone can tell. The first picture was my very first time "playing" with the scupley and isn't based on anyone.

    Excellent first attempts, I know who both are meant to be (I think)

    Cheers Tommy, the last time I used clay was at school almost 20 years ago, and had never tried to sculpt a human head before.

    Can't afford to buy custom sculpts on top of all the Hot Toys preorders so thought it may be worth giving it a go. Need to get some better quality tools than the ones I picked up in hobbycraft though.

    Correct on the first, wrong on the second (you are the second person to say it looks like Walken though)

    Yep :thumbsup:

    Very nice Inked, keep at it bud.

    These where my fist attemps around a year ago, I was trying to capture the Mother shark from Jaws 3D. Thanks to my inexperience I hadn't used a frame and the thing fell apart!!

    Mr Quint, that looked great, must have been very disappointing when it collapsed!

    The great thing with sculpting with sculpey is that it doesn't harden until baked, so you can do just a few minutes at a time.

    I've been sculpting the heads over kitchen foil, but I saw someone recommend two part JB weld putty as an armature. May be worth using a core of that for a larger sculpt

    First post updated with two more pics of the Rick sculpt, still needs lots of work but I think it's an improvement.

    Unfortunately I have realised that both sculpts are rather too big. Will finish them up to get the practice in before trying to sculpt any smaller heads

    Look at that!! Seeing as your new to this mate, that is bloody awesome. When will your 1:6 scale versions of Quint, Brody and Hooper be out? ;)

    Cheers mate. My next attempt will be to make one the correct bloody size ha ha!

    Would like to try a Daryl Dixon and then maybe a Daniel Craig Bond. Just taking it slow and trying to learn as I go.
