July 17th, 2008, 06:43 PM
Hey, so I've been inspired by all the work here, and decided I wanted to see if I had any talent. I've never sculpted before in my life, but I must say, it's been a lot of fun so far. This is about 3-4 hours work so far. I know i've got a long ways to go, but if you have any tips, advice, critiques etc, please let me know!

wow this is your first try? You used great detail, I love it! Im not much of a sculpter more of a painter but you should continue sculpting Im sure you'll be successful. :)

Thanks boss :) for those following, heressome progress. basically redid the entire face. I tried to get the proportions much better. There is still a looong way to go but i think its getting better :)

So here's another little update...
What do you guys suggest in terms of detailing, or any other major work that needs to be done? Can anyone suggest a good method to recreate an ear?

:D There's a definite likeness to him!
Ears are tricky - but ultimately just like anything else. Good reference, a mirror and a critical eye are all you need.

lower the jawline, extend the forehead a bit forward, decrease the size of the nose and ears, reposition the ears...this is just what i can see from comparing the photo ref. to your most recent sculpt. i can see that you have a lot of enthusiam and i hope that what i said can help you...i am fairly new to this. only been sculpting for less than a year. Likeness is something i've yet to tackle. it is kinda scary. i commend your attempt, and your work so far is really nice...keep at it!!
ps. i hope that my comments aren't discouraging...because what you've done so far is really good!

Hey, no not discouraging at all, that's why I'm posting here, to get as much feedback as possible!
I'll post some more pics once I've made a few more changes,
cheers mate :)
