I spotted this table of goodies at a science fiction convention last weekend. The proprietor makes, among other things, a wide variety of soft LARP weapons -- and shrunken head trophies.
He gave me permission to take pictures and post them online.
I note the goblin heads are the proper orange color.
Ruler included for scale:
I posted some images of my sculpting attempts in the Show Off threads. This is the main body and armature for a birdhouse for my grandfather's 80th birthday. He sculpts in the medium of cement and sphagnum moss and builds fantastic faces on cedar roots (and other fun creations).
My dilemma is that, while this needn't necessarily be a functioning birdhouse, I'd like it to not weigh 75 pounds in the end. So I'd prefer to lighten my cement mixture with sphagnum/peat moss. But whenever I add even the slightest amount of moss, it turns the end product crumbly...
So I've finished this guy, my first cement sculpture, not my first birdhouse. I went with pure cement (fine) with a dash of mortar to smooth it out more. Took me a while, but I think Gramps will appreciate it. I know I'm not a world class sculptor or anything, but this was both enjoyable and challenging. Working with cement (ie: fighting gravity and hydroflow constantly, as well as dealing with occasional too-large chunks) was very strange, having worked with only GS, apoxysculpt, sculpey, and Play-Doh. If I did it right, you should be able to tell the emotion I was trying to invoke in him.
Any questions, comments, suggestions, critiques are welcome!
Alright, I'm still new to sculpting but I wanted to replicate something a friend of mine drew. Unfortunately after several failed attempts I haven't made too much progress.
What I want is "this"
What I made, is "this"
I'd like some pointers and words of wisdom and maybe some instructional pictures to help me out with this project.
So, I'm trying to take this swashbuckly guy and replace his head.
I'm willing to behead any mini I can find, but I REALLY want to finish my wife's Elf bard/Swashbuckler.
I don't need it to even be Elven. A slender human would be ok too.
Ideally, It would have medium to long hair pulled back, but short hair would do.
The one major requirement?
He needs to be smirking.
Can anyone suggest a smirking face?
